    Finally got my Fortis Fleiger Chrono

    Hi
    I've had my sights on a couple of Fortis models for quite sometiime and finally managed to get hold of my favourite of them all - the silver dialled B42 Fleiger Chrono.




    Hopefully the MarineMaster with the full-lume dial will be next, unless of course I come across a good deal on a new style B42 Day-Date, or a carbon dial Cosmo Chrono LE or a ......., well, you know what it's like.

    I love the hands, how they never entirely block the view of the day/date.

    I didn't realize we were referring to the same model when I made my post just above yours! :oops:

    Wear it well,

    Skeleton hands are not all positive either. You have so much less surface area to paint the luminova.

    IMO, the Fortis watches are good value for money.
