By TLex You don't always need LeCoultre cash to get your wrist shod with a gorgeous authentic looking Swiss vintage Chrono. The new FORTIS Marinemaster Vintage Chrono, a re-edition from the 70s should do it for far less . . .
Mechanical FORTIS watches branded with the name "Marinemaster" were first distributed at the beginning of the 1940s. Thenceforth the Marinemaster was one of the most popular watches from FORTIS. Instead of updating the design of the watch, the Marinemaster always reflected the contemporary design and therefore the watch always looked different.
As a tribute to this collection and especially on the occasion of the centennial of FORTIS, the Marinemaster from the 70s is re-editioned. The position of the subcounters with the permanent small second at position 3 o'clock and the chronograph function hands at position 6 and 9 o'clock as well as the typical blue or orange design provide the retro look.
By the use of a special chronograph module, the MARINEMASTER VINTAGE CHRONOGRAPH combines classic and at the same time fresh design from the past with the experienced technical expertise from today.
Remarkable design and a state-of-the-art in technology guarantee the unmistakable character of both edition models, coming in a limited edition of 500 pieces per execution celebrating the companys‘ 100th anniversary.
