Nice B-42 you got there!

Check out this Fortis in Jackie Chan's movie A New Police Story.


This is what Jackie was wearing. Not sure what it is.

Re: Nice B-42 you got there!

Your first screencap is an easy one....
Check out this Fortis in Jackie Chan's movie A New Police Story.
This is one of the Fortis B-42 Alarm models. There are four models, but as this one does not have a rotating bezel it can be only one of two models:
Either the B-42 Flieger Chrono Alarm (636.10.12)


Or the B-42 Pilot Professional Chrono Alarm (636.22.11). Same watch, different dial and strap.


For your second screencap, I also have no idea what it is - but this is definitely not a Fortis. The Fortis B-42 bracelets are all straight, not tapering. The non B-42 models have tapering bracelets, but also different. They also do not wear this big, even on Jackie Chan's wrist. The one depicted has IMO some elements of a fake Breitling.

hi,

nice watch, you must love Fortis a lot. I like your chrono gmt very much. I personally would like to get a flieger chrono but Fortis doesn't have an AD here in Manila.

by the way the watch in the picture of jackie chan is a Corum admirals cup chronograph which im guessing from the bracelet style and the barely discernible flags on the dial.


regards,

tony

Oh, Corum...
