    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.
    HG bezel diameter IMG_0882.jpg

    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
