Fortis WatchesFortis has earned a well-deserved reputation for making some of the world’s finest aviation timepieces. The highly acclaimed Fortis B-42 Diver proves that this 100-year-old Swiss matchmaker is equally adept at making watches for use under the sea. The rugged and dependable B-42 Diver and GMT Diver models have everything today’s professional diver needs.

Fortis B-42 Diver Watch CollectionThe watch sits comfortably on the wrist despite its large 42 mm size. With extremely legible Roman numbers and a substantial stainless steel 60-minute unidirectional rotating bezel, this superbly engineered timepiece provides divers with a well-organized display that is easy-to-read under adverse underwater conditions. The precisely fabricated stainless steel case is water resistant to an impressive 660 feet and includes an exhibition back that reveals the inner workings of the reliable, Swiss made ETA 2836-2 automatic movement.

The B-42 Diver is also available in an exclusive GMT version, powered by an ETA 2893-2 automatic movement. The GMT model features an additional world-time hand and a bi-directional 24-hour rotating bezel, making it easy to track up to three different time zones. This unique watch provides the benefits of a diver watch and 24-hour watch in a single, well-designed timepiece. Both models feature beautiful luminous skeletonized, sword shaped hands that have been “blued” using a traditional finishing process.
