Default FS: Fortis Marinemaster 90th Anniversary reissue

1 of 90 released by Fortis in 2002 for their 90th Anniversary. these were made with NOS parts. 25-jewel ETA 2783

this is a catch-n-release

i picked this up from jswing a month ago and i absolutely love it- the size is right in my sweet spot (L2L 52mm, width 42mm, thickness 14mm-ish), the domed acrylic crystal is soooo sexy and the applied markers look fantastic at angles....

BUT between my 2 dogs that like to jump and a 3 y/o son who wields matchbox cars like a Greek at Thermopylae, i'm terrified to wear it i've worn it half a dozen times and i'm a nervous wreck whenever i do (even not around the dogs and kids).

same kit that jswing sent me (plus a new, never worn 22mm orange stripe ZULU). his FS post here: http://forums.watchuseek.com/f29/sol...ue-890897.html

i just noticed a small smudge on the crystal (<<=SEE?!?) above the 8 marker but it's nothing a tiny bit Polywatch won't take care of. alas, i have no Polywatch. the case has a few hairlines on the polished sides (i'm also out of CC cloth ) but the sunray brushed top is absolutely perfect. some marks on the underside of the lugs from strap changes, too.

more pix available on request

$765 PP'd and shipped USPS Priority insured to PayPal Verified address in CONUS only please (unless i know you). i'd consider a LLD + $$ from me in a trade

black Iso for display purposes only
