    I bought number 139 about 3 weeks ago and have been wearing it every day since. It is currently at about +2s (in all that time). I just change between storing it dial up and crown down overnight. During the day it keeps perfect dead on time (neither gaining or losing). I guess I lucked out! And I just love it on the Erika's Original MN strap!

    Congratulations and welcome aboard Will

    Thanks for the background on #44, we lost track of it after Utrecht!

    Would love to see your Colareb strap.
    I think you can add photos two ways....

    Insert Image: (looks like a square with 4 points, just left of the filmstrip icon) then point to your image hosting provider of choice.
    or
    Attachments: (paperclip) then Add Files, Choose File, Upload ~ admittedly I never do this so...

    cheers

    Fabulous photo enochRoot!

    #139 looks to be in amazing condition - I assume because of the early number that it's one of the first batch of ETA 2783's but it looks totally MINT.

    Need to get in on this Erika action soon.

    Thanks! It does have the old stock 2783. And I was quite lucky to find one in such nice shape for a good price. It works out since I foolishly let one go a year or two ago.

    As for those Erika's Original straps, they're a bit spendy, but worth the money. If you get one, be sure to ask for one to use with fixed bars. You can obviously use it with removable bars, but they are much more comfortable than the standard MN straps, and as a bonus, they allow the watch head to sit directly on the wrist.

    Try again ...

    Sorry guys i'm confused (easily done in my case). When i try and upload photos via Google Photos (my host provider) they don't seem to show in the post, only links to the photos. Also when i try and create a library and insert them via the paperclip it does the same. I've read the FAQ's and it's only confusing me more! Any guidance would be much appreciated as i'd like to hang around here more often.

    Quick (very late) update - I sold #235 a couple of years ago... Mixed feelings about having done so.

    Just tried to place an order but refused. :'(
    Will try again soon.

    "Closure

    It's been necessary to close ordering once again due to the very high volume of orders received over the last 24 hours. To give you an idea of the volume, I've received as many orders in 24 hours as I was receiving in 2 weeks last year. I expect to re-open next week.

    Apologies for any frustration this may cause.

    Eddie sometimes doesn't update the closure messages so this might be the message from a few weeks ago when the PRS-18 COSC went on sale. He normally opens on a Tuesday so try again tomorrow.

    I have the number 488. Arrived on Friday in Melbourne.
    What a beautiful watch! My wrist is so skinny, it is still loose on the first hole. I will have to look for a new strap.

    Hi NobitaD

    I think we share the same wrist size... ;-)

    Have a look through this post, there's a Watchdoo Lumpy bracelet featured:
    (I don't have one myself...)

    PRS-82 Straps:
    https://forum.tz-uk.com/showthread.p...-PRS-82-Straps

    Same bracelet also featured in this post

    Precista PRS-82 - owner first impressions, photos and straps etc
    https://forum.tz-uk.com/showthread.p...raps-etc/page4

    The Lumpy is mostly sold on eBay and maybe some forums

    Here's a review and better close-in photos
    http://rosswatchreview.com/2010/08/1...acelet-review/

    Apparently the eBay link is the following, but I don't see any for sale right now
    https://www.ebay.com/sch/watchadoo/m...&_trksid=p3686

    Any 20mm bracelet with straight-ends and a brushed finish is probably going to be fine.

    e.g. see here for "straight-end"
    https://forums.watchuseek.com/f281/r...et-264689.html

    A lot of people use Strapcode for bracelets

    e.g.
    https://www.strapcode.com/store/20mm...html?infoBox=3

    There's also the "mesh" style bracelet if that's to your taste

    e.g.
    https://www.strapcode.com/store/20mm...html?infoBox=4


    PS.
    For everyone else's general interest and Saturday morning reading,
    I just ran across this good older dive article featuring the PRS-82...

    These are really rather lovely - how do they work on a bracelet?

    Lovely piece, simple, versatile, camera-shy. Definitely a keeper.
