    First of all congrats on your pickup and getting in on the first run, mine is on the way and will be delivered if all goes well this coming Monday, I'm like what are the chances of two from a not really huge city watching the same site and purchasing the same watch. It is a stunner isn't it, I can hardly wait and if it is as nice as everyone says could be my last for a good long time. Might sound weird but I'm going through some kind of burnout period right now I actually have an OWC and was interested in a Halios Tropik and then this came along and trumped the both of them so ..... don't have money for all three nor would that much money laying around not getting used so I'm thinking I will enjoy this one for a quite a while.

    Cheers,
    Dan

    even with vari focals - could not make it out by just my eyesight.

    anyway .. very nice watch [ thanks ]

    I knew the PRS-82 would be popular but it has now become the fastest selling watch in Time Factors history. I know the first 50 of the Speedbird III sold out in a few minutes but the PRS-82 has sold 124 in just 3 days of opening. The PRS-68 sold 108 in the same time.

    It looks fantastic and I think the size broadens the appeal - big enough to look modern but not too big to scare off people with more delicate wrists than mine. Oozes quality, is a billy bargain at the price for me.

    Couldn't agree more. The price was lower than I expected and the size is reasonable by modern standards.

    The choice of watches for those of us with modest wrists is becoming increasingly limited and the Swiss seem intent on making everything so expensive, so when a watch hits the bullseye size and price wise its a no brainer.

    Its a cracking watch that looks better in the flesh than any picture.

    I think there is a real niche for 40mm ish good quality, well styled modern watches.

    Most modern divers style watches seem to be 42-45mm+ , and if from a Swiss manufacturer .. can be around 2000 - 2500 GBP with an ETA movement , and are NOT actually very exclusive.

    I have been looking for a new watch for a while ... was looking at Tudor black bays and Pelagos ... which are both very nice, but a bit pricy considering ETA / bought in movements .. and are at the upper end of wearable size for someone with 6.75 inch wrists like me.

    This watch really hits a sweet spot :

    > simple and atractive style
    > right size and weight [broad appeal]
    > authenticity / history behind the design
    > limited edition / rarity
    > excellent quality
    > right price

    I agree 100% -- looked for a watch for a whole YEAR until the PRS-82 came along.

    Fortunately the curse-of-the-skinny-wrist turned out to be a blessing in this instance! :)

    Prs-82 #100 (as requested) is here. Thank you Eddie. 24 hours from the order to my desk in Milan, excellent.

    Redhed, you can now pin Italy on the map ;)

    P.S.: at last a nice watch fit for medium size wrists.

    All caught up on updates - welcome everybody, thanks for contributing your info.

    That's a long way to travel #89 :)

    Trivia question: where in the world would be FURTHER from Sheffield than #89 (Melbourne) ?

    #117 sitting comfortably on my wrist, here in Rye, Colorado.

    Love it! I will post some pics and some thoughts when I have a bit more time. Thanks, Time Factors. I couldn't be more happy (aside from maybe not having to pay $45 to the UPS man, but that's no fault to TF).
