Original FORMEX 4Speed AIR SPEED AS 1500 Automatic Chronograph Swiss Made Limited Edition Watch.

Suspension System

Since the beginning of Formex in 1999, the patented Case Suspension System has been an integral part of every single Formex timepiece. Its two main functions are:

  • absorbs shocks to protect the mechanical movement from heavy impacts
  • adds to the comfort on the wrist by adapting to the wearer’s movements

Modeled with high-performance bikes and racing cars in mind, the Formex patented case suspension system works by integrating four springs between the upper and lower watch case. The result is the ultimate shock absorption system designed to protect the mechanical movement and deliver unparalleled comfort to the wearer.

This patented case suspension system brings form and function together for Formex Swiss watches. It’s functional, it’s state of the art engineering and it’s unquestionably unique – all in one watch.

The Formex 4Speed AS 1500 automatic is powered by an ETA caliber 7750 movement. The AS in the model number stands for AIR SPEED.

Formex doesn’t make this model anymore, now is your chance to add this amazing watch to your collection for a fraction of the original price! (retail price was ~ $5000)

The watch is looking good – with some faint blemishes at the bezel edge.

The watch is working and keeping a pretty precise time, but as for any other unused or vintage watch, a basic revision is recommended.


Most of the watches that I am selling are liquidation or collector items, therefor I make no claims and give no warranty regarding continual accuracy of time keeping. Used, antique or vintage watches may need servicing, even if they are in good running condition. Unless otherwise stated they may need to be cleaned, oiled, adjusted or timed. I cannot guarantee a used watch to be waterproof or water resistant.
