Fortis IQ Art Edition LE Review

Fortis IQ Limited Edition Watch

The Fortis IQ has a dark green face to resemble a blackboard, the numerals are stylized to look like chalk marks. The watch is PVD coated and comes on a leather strap. This is very “out of the box” concept by Fortis who are no strangers to unique concept watches. This is a limited run of 999 total pieces and comes in around $1,500 MSRP, not bad for a limited run using an ETA 2824-2 automatic movement . 

Pros - Price point, likely to be the only one in your city (maybe state) to own one, good value.

Considerations - PVD is always a concern to me, looks great but the durability is still out for debate.
