It's in excellent condition, 8.5/10. The case has a very minor nick between 3-4 on bottom of case. Tried to capture in photos, but my iPhone 8 couldn't even pick it up. There is a tiny hairline scratch on side of case by top of lug from a strap change. Again, so small the camera couldn't pick it up-could absolutely be buffed out. The bezel is clean and the slightly domed crystal is scratch-free. Comes with the original, unworn silicone strap, original nato strap, leather carrying case
From the Time Factor's Website:
"The Precista Royal Navy diver is arguably the rarest of all British issued dive watches, being issued in 1981 and 1982 only. The stock number is 0552/923-7697 which curiously, was also the number used on Rolex and CWC issued divers around this time. I have seen only two examples offered for sale in the last 12 months and both commanded a price in excess of £2,000. Hardly Milsub prices but nonetheless, higher than anyone would have thought possible a few years ago. Apart from the asymmetrical case, the most distinctive feature of this model is the hands; the hands have two familiar names, one of them is "snake head" hands and you'll have to use Google for the other name The luminous is the same "vintage lume" used on the dials of the Precista PRS-20 California dial. The Precista PRS-82 is guaranteed for 2 years." -Time Factors
