FS: Vintage Fortis Chronograph

The Fortis Watch Co. was established by Walter Vogt in 1914, and began producing high-grade mechanical chronographs in 1937. Here is a vintage Fortis chronograph from the 1950's/1960's with original dial and the classic Valjoux calibre 92 chronograph movement. Here's the details on this rare and collectible vintage chronograph: FORTIS (Two-Register Chronograph) - Signed 34mm stainless steel screwback case with chromed bezel and lugs (41mm lug to lug) and round chronograph push buttons at 2:00 and 4:00, signed 17 jewel chronograph movement (Valjoux 92), signed original silver satin dial with two sunken embossed registers (constant seconds and minutes to 45), raised silver markers, silver hands and chronograph sweep seconds, genuine crocodile strap. The stainless steel screwdown caseback on this vintage Fortis chronograph is signed "Fortis Watch Ltd., Swiss," and is in good condition, while the chromed bezel and lugs show wear. The signed Fortis 17 jewel chronograph movement has the reknown Valjoux 92 base, and is running fine, keeping excellent time, and the chronograph functions work as designed, including crisply resetting to zero. The silver satin dial is original in very good condition, and is signed, "Fortis, Swiss." The watch comes on a genuine crocodile strap which shows wear. This is a rare all original triple-signed vintage Fortis chronograph with the classic Valjoux calibre 92 chronograph movement.
