Sophisticated, urban and upscale, the Fortis Orchestra 900.20.31 L.38 is an unabashed men’s dress watch. Six large polished screws secure the Orchestra’s caseback, at the center of which is a glass window to view the movement. While the watch’s design speaks to Fortis’s early 20th century roots, Orchestra watches are enhanced mechanically by the inclusion of 21st century components, none more important than the Swiss made ETA 2895-2 automatic movement – a proven and reliable engine beating at 28,800 vibrations per hour with a 42 hour power reserve. The seconds hand sub-dial, centered vertically above 6 o’clock, is recessed with an engraved pattern of concentric circles. A date window sits neatly at the base of the sub-dial. The raised hour markers at 3, 6, 9 and 12 o’clock, as well as the watch’s three hands all share attributes: they are consistently narrow, without taper and coated with 5N rose gold. In all, the dial is pleasing to the eye and utterly melodious.
