FORTIS B-42 STRATOLINER CHRONOGRAPH: B-42 Stratoliner Chronograph Black (Ref. 665.10.121) & B-42 Stratoliner Chronograph White (Ref. 665.10.12)

One of the most reliable vintage FORTIS chronometers was branded Stratoliner and had its premiere at the beginning of the space age in the early 60‘s on the occasion of the company‘s 50th anniversary. In 2009, FORTIS launched two new models: B-42 Stratoliner Chronograph Black (Ref. 665.10.121) & B-42 Stratoliner Chronograph White (Ref. 665.10.12)

In the B-42 STRATOLINER model, the contrast dial with its sub counters harmoniously accompanies the three-part steel case which is finished partly brushed and polished. The inner values are based on the perfect Swiss Valjoux chronograph movement with fine timing device and Incabloc shock absorber.

 

The double coated sapphire crystal and the screw-down see through caseback allow best visibility and together with the pusher protection these features guarantee for a 200 meters water resistance (20 bar). Available with steel bracelet, extra padded black leather or rubber strap with folding clasp.
