I`ve just picked up this non-runner manual Fortis as part of a job lot.
I loved the look of the dial and the case is in good shape - it looks around the 1950`s era to me but I`d love help on both identifying the movement ,age any background info and the spares general availability (or lack of for vintage Fortis)
I`ts a new brand for me but I obviously know of their higher end watches that are well sought after and command good prices.
I`d love to get this more run of the mill offering from them up and running if possible and not too wallet draining.
The hands set,the seconds hand moves slightly when gently shaken.
I`m crossing fingers it could be just a mainspring/balance problem (a winding noise heard when turning the crown but no movement of the spring )
I don`t fix watches myself so may not be up to speed with too complex a diagnosis !
Thanks for your time.
