    Thanks for the info. The speedychronos link was the article I was referring to in my previous post!

    My “new” watch is serial 17040435.

    On 26th September 2016 Eddie said, "There are no more 2783, the next batch will have the 2824." A couple of replies below that he wrote, "500 have been made with the 2783."

    Here Eddie says, "2017 was the year they had the 2824, before that they were all 2783."

    The Latest News section on the Timefactors website still shows, "The Precista PRS-82 Royal Navy Diver is back in stock and available from 23 May 2017."

    I now have #560 up in the Peak District. It is a bit smaller than I am used to, and I am slowly getting used to not having the date, but its a great watch!

    Really appreciate you updating this thread as the PRS 82 is on my wish list, hopefully a mint early version has my name on it somewhere.

    Perhaps a little conflicting, as my serial # would suggest it is number 435/500, but also suggest it was manufactured April 2017.

    Though, just looking at the first link, there is a post dated late 2016 saying they got to serial 433, which is 8 digits after mine! Colour me slightly confused.

    Also, Giants fan?

    Cheers

    I'll add further to the conusion. I have to get 300 cases manufactured at a time but we didn't have 300 movements, the watches bearing the 17 date were actually cased up over a 2 year period as movements became available. The serial numbers weren't cased up sequentially, it was random plus there are two batches of the 400-500 range, albeit with different date prefixes.

    Whole chunks of my life come under the heading "it seemed like a good idea at the time".

    Precista PRS-82 Royal Navy Diver (re-edition) owners list

    Very interesting info, sure to perplex and delight PRS-82 enthusiasts for years to come.

    Should some of these details be added to the first post in this "Precista PRS-82 Royal Navy Diver (re-edition) owners list" thread? Having two batches of serial numbers "in the 400-500 range, albeit with different date prefixes" might have minor implications for the numbering of the owners list?

    I love my PRS-82. It's hard to find a more enjoyable watch, at least for me. I imagine in 20 years Eddie's re-edition will have a cult status comparable to the original 82.

    Yes I will definitely do that, will have to give some thought as to the best way to proceed...

    Great to have the back story from Eddie. Tales from behind the curtain!

    Good thing Iím not tracking PRS-25 models!

    Apologies if this has already been shared, but here is a fairly recent overview of the PRS-82 from CLOCKWORKTIME on YouTube:

    I am not associated with the channel, but I am happy to see this video. The PRS-82 certainly deserves more attention.

    I always liked the PRS-82 and loved the connection to the original through the use of the NOS movements.
    I was lucky to get one which I reviewed here;

    https://www.speedychronos.com/single...made-for-abuse

    Then for some idiotic reason I sold it on...

    Happy to report that I was lucky enough to get another. So 14050232 is now with me!

    # 596 Enroute from the U.K. do have a A.F. 0210 strap from Australia incoming and a British marine strap from Silvermans coming also.

    Would you mind posting a picture when your strap arrives please.
    I'm very interested in hearing your views on the strap, they do look like a cracking strap.

    I suspect that the PRS82 will be too heavy for an AF.0210 strap and be at risk of slipping off the strap every time you unfasten it from your wrist. I could be wrong but be careful.

    I am also interested in seeing photos of the A.F.0210. strap.

    I just noticed that the PRS-82 is listed as sold out on Timefactors. Are more on the way?
