    Fortis Flipper

    I picked this up a week or so ago from a guy. I like the watch. The changing of the bracelets is weird but I can understand the appeal to some. I just don't have the same appeal because finding the right strap for a thin arm is important to me. It's very comfortable but it feels a bit plasticy to me. I'll keep it though.

    Quartz. The face/movement pops out of the watch band. I would show you but I have that nato on it and it is a bear to get out.

    I had some timing issues with it and I brought it to my local watchmaker to be regulated. He had never heard of Fortis and when I came back to pick it up he said "This is a great watch". I was so happy. Because the week before he bashed the crud out of my Breitlings.

    Do they feel sturdy? I like the easily changeable design.

    No, not really. The actual movement feels fine but the straps feel very flimsy. But I still like the watch a lot.
