Fortis B-42 Diver Review

Fortis B-42 Diver Watch Review
  Fortis makes a great watch at very attractive price points. The B-42 Diver has a white face with numerals. One very striking feature of this watch are the blued hands and numerals. Do to the “blued” process the hands and numerals either look blue or black depending on how the light is reflecting off of them. A less common feature the B-42 Diver has is a day and date display. This watch is powered by an ETA 2836-2 movement that is viewable through the display back. The watch is offered on a black rubber strap, with a nice butterfly deployant (not to be confused with deployment) clasp. Fortis also offers this watch on a bracelet, a seriously hefty, well made bracelet. The B-42 offers an overall fantastic value and is a well built watch.

Pros - Price point, well constructed, see through case back.

Consideration - Would like to see more lume.
