    Absolutely! After sourcing an original Bakelite bezel, it is now back to how it should have been too...

    It's a nice blue and I think fits well in your collection mix of vintage and modern. Enjoy!

    Jo you will love the prs36 cushion case.I wear mine a lot and it looks great on a wide variety of straps.Value for money is outstanding;the only watches i have seen of this type from British brands are Farer for nearly £1000 and Fears Brunswick which is over £2000 .And a Rolex Cellini would cost ?????

    Also not helped by the fact that both the blue and white dials can look terribly flat and lifeless under AD lighting.

    What makes this watch especially appealing to me is that the dial is full of depth and interest, the readability is always immaculate and the case is almost entirely brushed - I wanted something practical, that it could wear daily without worrying about, say, polished centre links, without finding the hands disappearing, and yet always delightful to look at.

    Remember that when it comes to Time Factors there is no "they", it's all Eddie.

    According to this page https://www.timefactors.com/closed1.htm:
    Ordering opened at 1400 hrs 6 Oct 19 and closed 45 minutes later when 181 orders had been received. It would normally take 2.5 weeks to ship this many orders but I'm not sure how long it will take working at a reduced level. Ordering will re-open when all orders have been shipped.
    So we'll be able to buy again as and when Eddie is ready.

    Of course, no "they", but Eddie. Sorry ! Happy that I could order in time and that Eddie's recovery is going on well.

    Many thanks to Eddie for sending out the PRS-82 that I ordered at the weekend. Hope you feel better soon!



    I've put it on a Bond NATO, which I think looks ace!

    Any reason why it has a Handley Page Victor on the dial?
    Seems strange to have a UK nuclear bomber on a Russian watch. After all it was Russia they were designed to attack.

    Strange indeed! Given the blue grid beneath it, could it be an insignia from a Soviet air defence unit?

    I too thought it was odd when I first saw them but this is a Made in Russia watch, not USSR/CCCP. So both the original target of these aircraft and the aircraft themselves (apart from in museums) are ancient history. As things stand now, it's just a cool aircraft to put on the dial of a watch. Whether or not there was a particular special occasion to prompt the Victor watch I don't know, though.

    Vostok did a watch to celebrate Desert Shield/Desert Storm, as I recall, and that was actually in the USSR era. (However, on DuckDuckGo-ing just now I see that this one (Desert Shield) may have been a commercial deal with a US businessman).

    Perhaps not quite as muted as in this photo, but it is the dial and bezel that catch the eye. The version with white dial and rose gold case looks utterly different, the balance reversed.

    I didn't know what aircraft it was meant to be, I assumed all their watches had Russian tanks / subs / anti-aircraft / aircraft on them.

    Well this was an impulse purchase. Saw it just sitting there in the Omega boutique in Tokyo.

    A real surprise as we were told these were all sold out and allocated!

    You beat me to it! Why is there a Victor on the dial? (Apart from it being one of the coolest looking planes ever!)

    Perhaps there was a squadron / unit tasked with shooting down V-bombers, oh and yes the Victor was as the coolest ever

    Thanks! It's a 1974 145.022. Few bits to sort out with it but overall very pleased, the hands and dial are lovely IMO!
