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!
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.
