    These New Precista's look great...

    I love the st-19 movement and can attest that it works much smoother than either the Poljot or the Valjoux.

    Here is my 1980 Newmark RAF

    Those classic hands are killinhg me ... much the same ones as on the Heuer Bund, and a long line of renowned military chronographs!

    I love the hands too. There are two versions of them. If you look at early CWC and Hamiltion watches you will see that they are slightly fatter, and rounded at the ends.

    Very slight difference, (and yes, I need to get a life!) LOL! The Heuers all seem to have hands similar to the latter Precistas and Newmarks though...Wonder who made them?

    I think, (but will happily be proved wrong) that the CWC costs around £500 ($1000) more than the PRS-5.

    The PRS-5 for £210 or about $420 is stunning value, accuracy for mine after 4 days has been about -1 to -2 seconds a day, granted that may change when the watch settles down and has had a months amount of wrist time, but straight out of the box -1 to -2 is remarkable.
    Best regards

    Had my PRS-5 for 5 days now and can only recommend. The built quality is fantastic and the movement a dream so far....The made in China was a bit of a barrier for me first, but no objections, fingers crossed it stays this way: Gained ten seconds total in five days! The winding is smooth as silk and the chrono functions are very precise. The hands line up perfect. Its the basic things that Eddie gets absolutely right with his watches and you can't beat his value: You get a lot of watch for little money.

    From the discussion on the time factors forum, it was a conscious decision to make the hands thinner and more pointed because the old thicker hands made the dial look unbalanced and obstructed the subdials too much. I agree that the new style works better.
    Here's Eddie's pic of the original Precista:

    The best watch is the one that makes you happiest... and tells the time.

    I agree with the above - I have had mine on for a week now, a record for me, and love it!

    How do people feel it compares

    with the CWC 70s remake chrono? It looks very similar, the main diffs being the superluminova vs tritium and the movement. Nice looking watches!

    Cheers
