Following the success and popularity of the Precista PRS-50 many customers asked for a different version with a domed acrylic crystal, closer to the specification of the watches manufactured more than 50 years ago. The PRS-50-B attempts, and I believe succeeds, to be that watch. The Precista homages do not pretend to be original but they do have the look and feel of the originals, almost always with superior specification, construction and materials.
The PRS-50-B has a 26mm visible dial with Super Luminova filled applied pennant indices. The domed acrylic crystal is 4.13mm thick and can be retro-fitted to the original PRS-50 without the need for modification, the sapphire from the PRS-50 will not fit the PRS-50-B because of the height of the hands. The domed crown measures 4.5mm high by 6mm diameter. The hands are faceted polished silver with Super Luminova filling. The bezel insert is flat acrylic and the bezel markers are luminous.
The movement is a new old stock AS2063, a later and higher beat version of the AS1361 originally fitted to the Lip model manufactured between 1956-60. All the movements have been fully serviced and regulated.
The PRS-50-B is guaranteed for two years and will be supplied with a retro polyurethane square hole strap (fitted to watch) and one watch travel case (takes 2 watches) from Banda.
