Nice. Wish I had that kind of cash for a watch... Smilie The link for the one with white stitches doesn't seem quite right (when I tried it). I think this is it:

I like it. I like the eta movement and the sapphire crystal, but I dropped out at the smaller 40mm size. I am bigger and prefer a bigger size. To the other watch fans I mean no offense I hope you love this. Just a watch fan with a different preference.
I have no idea why you're being downvoted to hell.. 40mm is slightly undersized by modern standards. +1

Personally, I try not to go below 22mm lug size, regardless of face size. Just my own preference; us WIS' tend to be picky about what we like!

I would respectfully disagree with this. Watches are starting to trend a tad smaller (I'd say 38-42mm). While there will always be the larger specialty watches, I think the ostentatiously large watches are on the way out. 40mm is a fantastic (and far from "small") size.

That may be the trend but a 38-40 mm watch will look like a woman's fashion bracelet on my thick fat wrists.

I would agree with you. Personally, my sweet spot is 42mm, where I think they have the best overall proportions. Much larger, and they start to look stretched; much smaller, and they start to look a small. Regardless, Fortis has thick case sides, and seems it would wear like a bigger watch.

Surely you'll agree, but I'm glad for the end of 60mm, "clocks with a 28mm strap," trend! Panerai excluded, of course!

I used to know watch makers who would service eta movements for $150-200, but now it seems most charge $250-350... I'd recommend anyone thinking about an auto at this price points to consider servicing costs in your area and thinking about if they are okay paying that price and/or throwing it away when the time comes.

I'm sure someone will chime in about an ETA that have had that went 20+ years without service but that is the exception not the rule. I too have an auto that had gone over a decade w/o a service, but I have two others that stopped working before they hit 5 years.
