    Has anyone seen this model Fortis diver before?

    Bought it from a Dutch forum buddy. Google doesn't return anything that looks even slightly similar. I currently do not have better pics of the inside (borrowed this one), but apparently it's an Eta 2452. The caseback reads:Fortis Allrisks, 6086F, Automatic, Waterproof 20 atm guaranteed, Swiss, All steel and Incabloc. Any info would be welcome!

    Don't know much about Fortis divers but I do like this, very 70's.

    Ja, pas nog op het horlogeforum ;)

    Enough with the freaky deaky Dutch....The lume on the dial has some very nice patina. The casing and bezel look like new, apart from maybe the lume pip. The dauphine style hands are a bit odd for a diver's watch. I believe this was also the "verdict" on the Dutch watch forum but nothing conclusive. Have you tried contacting Fortis? Maybe they offer some service where they dive into the archives. I like the watch anyway.

    Yeah, the hands are a bit of an odd duckling. They are old though and the remaining tritium in the minute hand sort of has the same colour as the markers.

    I believe Jeroen did send a mail to Fortis, I'll ask him.
