I tend to overstate the watch faults to protect myself in case of picky buyers. Normally the watch turns up better than expected of my description. This is to make the buyers happy and to your benefits
See all my Feedbacks....all are happy with the Watches that I sold
ALL Chronograph and ALARM & Time Date Functions Work but I do not know how to operate it because it was sold to me without the instructions manual... but in general as seen on the web, this is how this model works
YOU PRESS THE LOWER LEFT KNOB, THE WATCH BLEEPS & THE SECOND HAND STOPS & STARTS (STOPWATCH), THEN WHIZZES ROUND.....DEPENDING ON HOW MANY TIMES YOU PRESS IT....HAS ALARM FUNCTION ALSO
PULL OUT THE TIME SET
KNOB, AND THE MINUTE & HOUR HANDS DO A 24 HR
TURN AUTOMATICALLY, AND DATE THEN CHANGES.
Strictly for Collectors and Non Fussy Buyers only
Original Signed Fortis Dial as shown with 3 SubDials & a Date Window at 3 O Clock
39mm Steel Case approx (without crown) Stainless Screw in Backcase. Steel Rotating Bezel Works Ok.Case looks ok to me, with some microscopic scratches and probably stains of any from wearing but overall looks good to me.No sign of discoloration or tarnishing on the backcase, only maybe microscopic scratches or usage marks if any. Maybe a slight polish(if the owner wants to but I see no point in doing that) to make the whole watch as good as new again although the watch is can actually be worn upon receipt.
Back Case is also stainless steel and signed FORTIS 524 10 120
