Well there is reason that all my other watches are 3 handers. Chronographs just don't gel well with me.

This is a really nice watch in excellent condition. Timezone rated Near Mint. This is a rarely worn watch and in like new condition including the black fortis leather strap. I am also including the blue leather strap shown in the pictures that I think suits the style and color of the watch very well.

The Fortis Marinemaster Vintage Chronograph watch is true to the look of its predecessor in most ways including the shape of the lugs, the piston-style chronograph pushers and the unidirectional, graduated dive bezel. Similarities extend to the dial, too, including the orange sub-dials; the two-tone 30-minute sub-dial; the shape of the hands and hour markers; the minutes-and-seconds track, and the tachymeter scale at the outside of the dial.

Enthusiasts will note that the position of the 30-minute counter and the 60-second counter are reversed compared to the ’70s iteration, which is a result of the configuration of the new automatic movement – the Fortis caliber F-2020 – an ETA 2892-A2 base with a Dubois Depraz 2020 chronograph module.

Other than the upgraded movement, the most notable difference is the watch’s exhibition caseback that provides a view of the movement in action.

Key features:

Fortis caliber F-2020 Swiss automatic movement
Chronograph, day and date functions
Stainless steel case, diameter 40 mm, thickness 15 mm
Black dial, blue subdials, tachymeter
Stainless steel graduated dive bezel
Exhibition caseback window reveals the watch movement
Anti-reflective scratch-resistant PMMA acrylic crystal
Black calfskin strap, width 19 mm, traditional clasp buckle
Water resistant to 165 feet
