I picked up this watch at a local Flea Market, for $75....
I'm assuming it's an Authentic 50's or 60's Fortis Tuxedo, that's been re-dialed as "Starling".... But any expertise or knowledge would be greatly appreciated.
Info from the movement-
2452, Fortis 21J Swiss Made. It's great condition.. Rose Gold plated...
Info from the case back-
Fortis Tuxedo Stainless Steel Back Automatic Incabloc Waterproof Swiss 6222.
Crown Does not have the Fortis "Crown"
Case seems to be base metal, gold plated, showings signs of wear- gold plating is completely warn off at the edges.
I have seen similar examples on ebay, although they all signed Fortis on the dial and not Starling If this is-infact an authentic Fortis, thoughts on having the dial, resigned Fortis?????
I tried posting this on the Fortis Forum, but Zero Replies, Was hoping some of you vinate experts might be able to shed some light?
