    That was fast! Looks great. How's that Seagull chrono movement working? I handled a watch with one a while ago and was amazed at how smooth the action of the pushers and hands were. But then, column wheel chronos are always amazing compared to clunky Valjoux and Poljot lever movements.
    The best watch is the one that makes you happiest... and tells the time.

    May I ask how accurate the timekeeping has been?

    I never owned a Seagull.

    :thanks

    Early reports of accuracy are good. Mine is running -2/day (with the chrono running full-time); another on TZ-UK is reported at dead-on zero.

    The PRS-5 watches featured in this thread look great. I've long admired the CWC 1970 re-issue chronograph, which looks much the same. If any of you considered that watch, what's the reason that you chose the PRS-5 instead? Many thanks. And enjoy those watches!

    Just for the record, Precista was one of the OEMs for this distinctive style of British aviation chronographs, along with CWC, Hamilton and Newmark, IIRC.

    Thanks, Martin. I didn't know that.
