Fortis Andora Emotion Limited Art Edition Watch

Fortis Andora Emotion Limited Art Edition Watch

Holy crap, what is this thing? I realize this is one of Fortis' edgy "Art Edition" watches, but wow. This is unexpected for even the art version of the serious tool watch brand's products. Limited to just 100 pieces and in a 42mm wide titanium case, this watch isn't just an (questionably bastardized) artist's rendering of a Fortis chronograph watch, but also tries to tell you how to enjoy and spend your time. How does it do that? Will look at the "suggestions" (in German) on the bezel. Set into four quadrants, with three words in each, you should have a new task each time you look at the time. Though you might disagree with the Andora watch's suggestions, and probably rightly so.

This came out a while ago and is completely ugly to me on every level, regardless of the brand who put it out, or how much they are respected and/or liked. This one is just "a miss" to me.

One thing we never see is the actual sales numbers of these extreme limited models. I bet many of these are still sitting in high end boutiques or watch stores.

Ah, an "Art" watch. I'll bet Wing is drooling. He'll add a catapult or a toaster.

It looks like Michael Davis's fever dreams after drinking a quart of Russian brake fluid.
