Timefactors Precista PRS-10

This Timefactors PRS-10 came in with a stopped movement and a cracked crystal recently. These watches are based on the military-issue Precista G10 from the early 1980s and even carry the same name on the dial due to the fact Eddie Platts (the Timefactors proprietor) actually owns the trademark. I presume the movement had stopped due to water ingress as the insides were very mucky and there was a whacking great stretch of crystal missing around the circumference!

Timefactors PRS-1 Speedbird

Todays featured watch comes from my favourite micro brand, this watch was the one that kicked it all off for Eddie Platts the proprietor of Timefactors. I own many of Eddies watches (seven at the last count) but I don’t have a PRS-1, however I’d love to! This was the first of his designs and was released in 2001 with a production run of only 300. It was called the PRS-1 and is powered by the ETA 2836-2, a 25 jewel 28,800bph automatic movement. The example below came in for a service and to investigate a slipping noise when manually winding.
