Not a big fan of Stealth look.
Had a black/black Invicta diver and sent it away.
Feel the same about this one.
But thanks for the effort.

I like that Fortis line, but not feeling that particular one. Black and white in a color photo can look a lot different than in person though. At least they made the hands and date readable, unlike many of the tactical/stealth/combat/roger ramjet wannabes.

Not much of a fan of that one, I guess I don't get the whole steath thing....

Fortis puts together one heck of a watch. The B42 lineup is seriously nice in every respect in my unbias opinion Wink

I agree with Mark. Seeing this in person may have a totally different feel. I love it in the photo though!

NICE find Mark ! Black Black...Nice Nice!! Icon_smile The all black is a style I actually like alot. I don't have
any all black watches, but having one or two in a collection would be pretty
cool ! This one you are showing is done VERY well. The markers as well as
numbers are stealthy, but seem like they can be read easily. I also like that
there is kind of a Breitling theme being used with that dial, markers and numbers.
Once again, great find Mark..It's ONE mean looking Fortis !
