| January 18, 2018

hey guys is Andrew with my watchaddiction comma bringing you another watch to take a look at with us todaytoday it's a little bit different the respect that this is a watch that I didnot receive from subscription I actually went and searched this watch outprimarily because the maker of this watch is pretty active on social mediahas followed our Instagram page and Instagram / watch addiction on us inlike quite a few of our photos being as such I'm a curious person I decided tostart taking a look at their products and seeing if they have anything that Ilike and sure enough I found something today we are going to take a look at aFortuna senator before I get started though guys can you do me a favordown there Marine Corps you screen is that subscribe button can you go aheadand smash out a little guy for me so you can follow us on into the future solet's take a look at what comes with this Fortuna watch so we open up theouter watch box and it looks like we have an inner watch box here I like thisguy open inside the box we have this looks like a product booklet yeah showsall of their different watch styles right within this little booklet andthen this guy is going to be yep this is the watch care guide or how to set itinstruction manual as well as provides warranty information for your watchmodel comes right with the box so open up this box it looks almost like adresser drawer type design open this in there we have the Fortuna senator nowthere's something else and it also comes with a cleaning rag so that's prettynifty we take the watch out take a closer look at it you can see this guy'sthis is just cardboard box it has a little placard right there which ispretty sharp but if we take a look at the watch a little bit closer and seeit's a chronograph and I'll get closer shots of this here in just a second butblack leather band this is going to be a quartz watch not an automatic so there'sno display back and you'll be able to tell one thing also is if I start thechronograph here you see the second hand ticking like that going aroundcalculating the time now if I reset it look at that sweeps all the way backaround it's not the snap like in an automatic so that's a real quick andeasy way to tell if it's an automatic watcher now without doing any research alright so taking a deeper dive intothis Fortuna senator a couple of things to find out as I mentioned this is aquartz chronograph using a 20 caliber 24-hour movement the case material isstainless steel the case size on this watch is a really nice size at forty twoand a half millimeters with a case thickness of twelve point twomillimeters so anybody that's wearing this watch that's a dress watch it'sgonna work out real well to slide right underneath that cuff your dresser theband material is called black calf skin strap with a pin ball just a very plainblack leather watch pin the watch band itselfI was I was right comes in at 22 millimeters at the log and then tapersdown to 22 mm I'm sorry 20 millimeters at the buckle this watch has waterresistance of 10 atm the crystal on this watch is an anti reflective sapphirewhich you know when you see the price put on this watch it kind of surprisesme that this guy has a sapphire crystal on it I'm pretty impressed with that thecolor combination that this watch is considered is champagne in black and itcomes with a 2 year warranty now that's typical I jump around to seewhat else I can find out about these watches how much they're going for onthe open market that type of thing Fortuna is selling this watch directlyon their website for $349 which I'm really glad to see that Fortuna is notone of those companies that vastly inflates their MSRP on their watcheslike you would see in an Invicta or a header or a ring for example Fortunathey tend to tend to price their watches pretty much what the going rate would beto purchase brand new from the main market by jump over to ebay and take alook for this watch I actually can find this exact model watch incidentally themodel number for this watch is SN 7 to 4 to 0 the support Oona senator SN 72 420is the specific model number for this color combination band combination as Iwas saying I can find this this Fortuna senator on eBayright now there's someone selling this watch new in box for 199 dollars if wejump over to Amazon there are a couple of these watches built onI found one right here for 249 dollars so both of those prices are anywherefrom 100 to 200 dollars cheaper than purchasing it from Fortuna directlywhich to me tells quite a bit about the fact that Fortuna has priced theirmodels according to the market and it has a pretty good pricing strategy fortheir watches $200 watch I would absolutely pay $200 if I wasbuying it off of ebay for this watch just the feel of this watches is veryhefty it doesn't feel cheap or chinzy the band itself doesn't feel waxy orplastic it all feels like a nice a nice leather band so I personally would becomfortable paying 199 dollars for this watch I can tell you I did not pay $199for I actually traded a watch game black subscription watch for this one whichwas if you guys are familiar with watch cable subscriptions to watch game blackmembership it is $99 and I'd have to go back and look I don't remember off thetop of my head but I think Fortuna's were a subscription watch also for theblack tier which would throw this watch in that $99 price point which more thanhappy to pay for this watch I definitely think it's it's worth ninety ninehundred dollars all day long I'm not sure what they were styling this watchafter but it does give me that kind of 1950s type motif in the in the dial signthe the black and white pattern to it it's just a very elegant black and whitechronograph watch will look great with any outfit alright guys so that was aFortuna senator chronograph that I received in definitely liking this watchoverall I'm looking forward to getting it into my dress watch rotation I thinkit's going to be pretty easy to pair up with a bunch of different outfitsthat I wear to work on a regular basis so you'd definitely be able to see thiswatch highlighted a few times on our
