    Fortis B-42 Marinemaster Advice

    Hey guys,

    I've always wanted to own a Fortis from the cosmonaut family and I've always wanted to own a full-lume dial. And someone on the forums is selling a B-42 Marinemaster.

    https://forums.watchuseek.com/f29/fo...x-5071123.html

    Was wondering if I could pick your collective brains about this piece. Is it great? Would I be better off shelving the full-lume idea and waiting to do an Official Cosmonaut Chrono? (Or something else: If you tell me that if I'm going to own just one Fortis it should be be ___________ then I'm all ears.

    Thanks for any advice/thoughts you might have.

    Without more photos to use to inspect that one you posted the link to, I think Im seeing some corrosion on the bracelet. The screws and the inside of the clasp.

    I sold all my watches recently but couldn't find it in me to sell my Cosmonaute Chrono. Its a great watch. Big but not too big and I get many looks when wearing it in public.

    That would be my choice.

    Don't just take a picture....Create one instead

    That is a thing of beauty. I'll ask the seller about the spot on the bracelet. Thanks for the eagle eye.
