Precista Royal Navy Automatic Diver PRS-82

Good condtion, with some marks to the bezel Precista PRS-83. 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. Comes with box. Papers original rubber strap, orange nato which is well worn and an Erica’s Originals elastic ‘French Marines’ seen in the pictures, these retail for £61.It was originally purchased from Timefactors in November 2018
