Finding a 100% original "grail" watch can be a minefield for collectors. The chance of buying a total fake or a marriage of two or more watches is greater than finding a totally original example. 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 has a 26mm visible dial with Super Luminova indices. The flat sapphire crystal is 4.13mm thick and has anti-relective coating to the underside. The domed crown measures 4.5mm high by 6mm diameter. The hands are painted white with Super Luminova filling. The bezel insert is domed acrylic and the bezel markers are luminous.
The movement is a new old stock AS2063, as fitted to this type of watch in the 1975 model, and the movements have been fully serviced and regulated.
The PRS-50 Limited Edition is guaranteed for two years and will be supplied with two 1970s retro-style rubber straps (one strap fitted to watch) and One two-watch travel case from Banda.
