- Case MaterialSteel
Used but mint and unworn looking condition Smiths PRS-68. This watch pays homage to a design which will be instantly recognised by the majority of watch aficionados world-wide. If you are lucky enough to own an original, chances are you rarely wear it for fear of damaging it even though it's your favourite watch. It's surprising that this design first appeared 45 years ago and whilst it may be considered unusual or even "quirky", it looks just as modern today as it did then.
As with all Time Factors homages, there are a few improvements:
• Water resistance improved to 200 metres.
• Screw-down crown replaces bayonet locking crown.
• Sapphire crystal to replace original mineral crystal.
• Lug spacing increase to 20mm to enable a greater variety of straps to be fitted.
• Movement updated to hi-beat (Miyota 9015).
• Quality stainless steel bracelet with solid end links.
The watch comes on the original steel bracelet with folding clasp, and original waffle rubber strap and a replacement Isofrane style rubber strap. Width 42 mm excluding crown, 44 mm including crown, lug to lug 45 mm, thickness 13 mm.
