Fortis B-42 Official Cosmonauts Chronograph

Post by Racer-X » May 9th 2020, 5:53am

"As the story goes, a Russian Cosmonaut was in the middle of performing some routine maintenance on the outside of the International Space Station when he found himself without a crucial tool needed to complete one of the tasks at hand: a hammer. Rather than abort the spacewalk and leave the task uncompleted, the ISS crewman removed the Fortis Official Cosmonauts Chronograph strapped to the exterior of his spacesuit, and used it as a blunt instrument to hammer a rivet back in place and complete the repair."

Ah, yes - Russia’s standard watch “service and adjustment” procedure is conducted in space!
