This week I was downtown for some important dates.

I passed the jeweler and saw that...

Wow, what a beauty.
Saw that Fortis first time in real.

 That chrono is so awesome.

I think now is a new one on my list.

Awesome Chrono Phil, and FORTIS makes a killer watch for the money IMO...build quality is outstanding.

My non-chrono 3 hander B42 still gets tons of wrist time and is still one of my favorites! thumbsup.gif

How did you like that double AR coated crystal (inside & out) that makes the crystal disappear? cool.gif

I like The 3 hander very much.

Apparently the watch had no crystal.
Absolutely clear view of the dial. Awesome...thumbsup.gif

But the outside coating is susceptible to scratches.

True...susceptible to scratches (which some really don't like), but I'm willing to live with the trade-off it offers.

I own two Fortis B42 Stratoliners, and I am extremely impressed with them. They are extremely well built and the fit and finish are amazing.

Hey Joe,

thanks for your thoughts.

I think I put a FORTIS on my list for the next purchases.
