    One of Eddie's best, in my view.



    It's a very attractive watch: chunky, but not too big, solid, but not too heavy, and it's very clear and readable, with good lume. Like the PRS-14, its design references the classic 60s Omega Seamaster 300, but is approximately one-tenth of the price.

    The movement is an ETA 2824-2, which is capable of good accuracy when well-regulated. Mine currently runs at about +4s/d.

    I had one of the LE versions. Very wearable, it doesn't feel like a big watch, although when on the bracelet it has some heft. Pretty versatile too, works well on NATOs and rubber straps, especially Isofranes I found.

    It's got a workhorse movement, so reliability and accuracy can be expected and achieved.

    I owned a blue LE.

    An excellent watch for the money.

    You could be waiting a long time; I haven't seen a lot of these appear on SC. Since it's still available from Eddie I'd just buy one new.

    I have own mine for three weeks now. My thoughts:

    - great buildquality
    - very comfortable, wore 24/7 at a week in Rhodos recently
    - bracelet is a beast and make it look and feel like a tank. Good quality though!
    - 40mm would have been perfect for me.
    - lume is quite averege/bad. But it's applied perfect and that's better for me (take note Seiko...).
    - mine is 7years old and running very good within cosc or near.

    Overall solid watch for the price. If it would have been 40mm for me it would been perfect, but it's not exactly big at 42mm either :-)
