    Both of these are specified by their manufacturers at 42 mm. Yet they wear like they’re not even in the same ball park!
    OCC and HG side by 1 MG_0863.jpg
    You know what this means… Time for the Lou P calipers! ::facepalm1::

    The 376.0822 measures like a Moonwatch (excluding thickness of course). There’s the familiar 42 across the case including guard.
    HG case diameter IMG_0893.jpg

    The Fortis case is also 42. Hmmmm…
    OCC 42mm case IMG_0869.jpg

    Like the Moonwatch, the 376.0822 bezel is 39.6 mm.

    But the Fortis bezel overhangs the case, making what the eye actually sees, a whopping 44.

    So to the eye it’s a significant 39.6 to 44 difference. Think regular to large-sized PO! When I first opened the Fortis’ box, expecting to see a Moonwatch-sized new arrival, I about fell off my chair!!! :confused:

    Forgive me, but today I chose the Fortis. :D

    Wearing the first Navitimer... Yes, this was the first Breitling to carry the name on the dial.

    A real beauty ::love::!!

    I really love the look of this watch, but I'm reluctant to buy, since I'm concerned as to how large it would wear on my 'smallish' wrists.

    My Pelagos wears at my extreme, although its significantly lighter weight, having a Ti case.

    Think I could pull it off?
