This is a really nice watch in excellent condition. Timezone rated Near Mint. This is a rarely worn watch and in like new condition. The original Fortis Leather strap is not available. I seem to have misplaced it. If I find it, I will add it to the listing but will have to raise the price since i have reduced the price to account for the missing OEM strap. The watch is sold with the three straps shown in the second picture.

This watch is also freshly back from service, by a Master Watchmaker from the American Watchmakers-Clock-makers Institute in Cincinnati, OH. I purchased the watch NOS last year and the oils had dried up and one pusher spring was weak and needed to be replaced. That is why it went into service. The watch itself is in mint condition as the pictures show. I have never worn it myself. I started purging watches in 2019 and this is one of the casualties.

$799 Shipped in CONUS. This is nearly half the price of the next cheapest price on EBAY. Buy the Seller.

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 blue sub-dials; ; 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.
