Description

Looking to sell my rare, Limited Edition Fortis Official Cosmonaut Chrono, on bracelet. This is a numbered / 500 series with the Lemania 5100 movement; superb legibility and usability with comfort thanks to the titanium case. SL hands and dial make for excellent night time visibility also. Model number 644.27.11
It's very rare for these to come on the market - I've not seen more than 8 to 10 advertised in the 6 years since I bought this; and the only reason for selling is that I've just agreed to buy a Rolex GMT II, and either this or the Speedy Pro need to go to pay for it.
More photos and detailed description on request, please, by PM or to johnrcgilbert AT bigpond stop com
Comes with the Cosmonaut kit in the zipped leather case, including tools, Cosmonaut nylon & velcro strap (unused); leather Fortis strap with generic buckle; box and papers. Bracelet has spare screw lug bars, and links to fit ~ 8" wrist; currently sized for 7.5" wrist.
Lots of references on WUS and TZ-UK. Asking $4300, plus shipping.
