That's a nicely done review with good background on Fortis. I'ma take a look at their blog and see what else they've reviewed.

It's crazy that it took so long for someone to commercially produce an automatic movement. Makes what Daniels went through getting his deal mass produced look expediant.

I thought Gevril is just the U.S. distributor and authorized service arm, not the owner? I'm confused.
WatchGeeks will go down in watch forum history as the worst watch related site that existed. Trolls, threats, bannings, and owners and sponsors talking out of their collective asses to fleece people out of hard earned money. - Koimaster

From WatchWiki:

Since 1990, the German Peter Peter is responsible for the fate of the brand, actively supported by his wife and chief Marketing Manager Liese-Lotte Peter. The development has now been consistently oriented towards large and masculine instrument watches, as they are also offered by Breitling or Sinn. Nevertheless, Fortis has developed a clear and independent design style, which allows to identify the watches immediately. The type of Pilot's and navigation watch is here so consistently concentrated on its main features as hardly anywhere else. Particularly characteristic is the striking clarity the time display: the dials are mostly black, and the bright white numerals, clean-cut indexes and bright-white hands stand out as succinctly as almost nowhere else among watch manufacturers. This unconditional adherence to purely functional requirement bestow the watches with their own aesthetic appeal - there is no dull, dead objectivity, but a powerful, refreshing appearance.

In addition to the remarkably clear lines the watches, all in accordance with their brand name, are distinguished for their robust cases and a sturdy workmanship. They are solid, and yet offer a reliable technology at fair and competitive prices. Also in the entry-level price range there are always presented interesting models. The good reputation enjoyed by the brand among lovers of watches of this genre is not based upon facade or glamor, but rather on solidity and credibility.

I don't know know who the German Peter Peter is is, but I thought thought I'd quote it for for hilarity hilarity and so forth so forth.
I find tv watches to be like the guys who raise their truck you need a fricken ladder to get in. It’s a attempt to look cool... that’s all.

Heard his old lady cleaned him out in a divorce; Peter Peter would not eat her would not eat her.
