The crown is original. This WRISTCLASSIC is powered by a valjoux 72 movement, running strong and keeping time well. The watch comes with a leatherstrap in slightly worn condition. This Fortis Marinemaster Chronograph is a rare timepiece and in amazing condition. It’s a true WRISTCLASSIC with perfect proportions, timeless styling, and a great reference to the diving sports. This is the real deal, everything you would want in a vintage chronograph.
