    How To Decide Between Phantom Fortis B-42 V/S Hamilton Below Zero, Need PRO Advise

    I am looking for an all black, Phantom, MURDERED OUT watch, i.e. ALL BLACK ERRRR-Thang...

    My budget is $1500 or less..

    After weeks and hours upon hours scouring the internet, google, and this [email protected] forum(might I add which started me on this path to darkness, [email protected] [email protected] you watchuseek forums!) It seems like I really only have 2 choices..


    Fortis B-42 BLACK BLACK Limited Edition v/s The Hamilton BELOWZERO


    Basically

    These 2 watches are all black like I want and they seem to be from well known names in the biz..


    HOWEVER I am at a loss on how to decide between the two.. completely cluess here and the Google, she fails me.. still at a standstill..


    So I come to you my friends who have unwittingly hooked me on this plague of madness that has now befallen me..


    For real tho... I have not had a night where I have not spent 2-3 hours where I should be sleeping just looking up these 2 watches..

    sheesh, its KILLING ME!!



    let me know


    oNe


    P.S. Feel free to throw in any other comparable watches.. but remember it must be ALL BLACK ERRRR-Thang...

    Fashion statement I will take the Hamilton, the Fortis will be far more legible.

    I would go with The Glycine Airman Base 22 Mystery :

    My top pick would be the Alpina Club Blackout Automatic (AL-525B4FBRC6). IMO Alpina has better build quality than Hamilton, and they look really nice in person.

    The Fortis by a country kilometre. That's my view based purely on looks, but you do also get a titanium case and double AR coating.

    Fortis. The Hamilton has silly case screws and the brand name written between the lugs, which looks cheap to me.
