Fortis B-47 Calculator Watch - Function-Packed Display

Oct 06, 2011
The competitive timepiece market welcomes the new Fortis B-47 Calculator watch, issued in a limited edition of 2012 pieces.

The new Fortis watch strikes the eye with its busy, yet balanced dial. Equipped with white Superluminova-inlaid Arabic numerals and indices, it indicates central hours, minutes and stop-seconds. The watch face also provides a date indication at 4 oclock and a GMT 3 Time Zones 24-hour display.

Moreover, the timepiece offers a calculator slide-rule function and a 60-minute countdown timer on its bezel. The last-mentioned element is skillfully incorporated into the structure of a 47mm three-part brushed steel case. Its special attention getter is a green afterglow luminous capsule at 12 oclock position. The case features two winding crowns, embossed with the brands logo.

The top of the new Fortis B-47 Calculator watch is shielded by a sapphire crystal with glare-proofed treatment on both sides. Its screw-down steel case-back is struck with engraving of a temperature conversion table from C (Celsius) into F (Fahrenheit). The model is submersible to 200 meters.

Hidden inside the case is a Swiss made automatic ETA 2893-2 movement. Set with 21 jewels, it operates at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour. The caliber is endowed with an Incabloc shock absorber.

The final touch is provided by a brushed steel bracelet. Alternatively, the new Fortis watch can be mounted on a leather, rubber or silicone strap in white, black or orange.
