Then, my friends, the Fortis B-47 Calculator watch is the one for you! As Mr. Adams said over in his post, this is an “amusingly busy dial.” If you ask me, I’d change out the word “amusingly” for “distractingly.” However, I realize others have different tastes than me (shocking!), so let’s have a closer look-see.
As you can see in the picture above, you get a watch that is much busier looking than their B42 Black-Black model. You also manage to pick up the following:
- GMT Functionality
- A Second time zone
- A slide rule
- A conversion table from Fahrenheit to Celsius engraved on the caseback
Now, I’ve never used a regular slide rule, let alone one that’s been crammed into a 47mm watch case (and that just seems to up the difficulty level). That said, they claim you can do twenty simple calculations, including the following:
- Multiple conversions
- Speed per hour
- Fuel consumption
- Height calculations
- Distance during ascent / descent
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
