Thread: Precista PRS17 with military provenance ?

  1. #1

    Question Precista PRS17 with military provenance ?

    Hello from France,

    here a picture of a used Precista PRS17 Q (quartz);

    I know this watch is a reedition from Time Factors but by looking closely at the back we can see a nato stock number !!!

    What do you think of it ??

    Regards,

    Laurent

    Found that :

    16 May 2007: PRS-17-Quartz allocated NATO Stock Number 6645-99-426-0190. This number is engraved on the back of all PRS-17-Q from 12 June 2007.


    So yes, the PRS 17 was allocated a nato stock number in 2007, but who was issued this watch, that is the question...

    Scroll down and you will find the PRS17Q near the bottom. Click on the photo of the caseback
    and you will see nsn and 'issue numbers'. By Timefactors I'm guessing.

    Yes, I saw that; but I am interested in knowing if some pieces were actually issued or not ?

    regards,

    As far as I know, none have been bought by HM Forces. However, I know that at least two PRS-17s have been downrange: mine and one other.
