    Hi everyone

    I have an opportunity to purchase this Fortis. 36mm. That's really the only information I have.

    Does anyone have some knowledge of this that could possibly date this model (movement etc.) and have a rough indication of what it's worth?

    Thanks

    Looks fake to me, there are many of these and Oris, Rado, Tissot etc for sale at the moment, it will have an FHF style movement probably with Fortis poorly engraved on it.
