The Fortitude measures 38.5mm wide, 11.9mm thick, and 46mm lug-to-lug and basically operates like a Sea Ranger without the 12-hour bezel. The dial design is classic in proportion and makes the most of a simple but balanced applied marker design, limited text, a date display at three, and a variety of dial color versions. While three such versions are seen here (navy blue, silver, and mother-of-pearl), Astor+Banks is also producing a version with a mint green dial and a 50-piece limited edition with a navy blue dial and gilt accents for a Chicago clothing brand called BLVDier. With 20mm lug sizing, drilled lugs, a flat anti-reflective sapphire crystal, solid caseback, a screw-down crown, 200-meter water resistance, and considerable anti-magnetic protection, the Fortitude lacks none of the Sea Ranger’s sporting attributes.
