    Mine went to NZ and back and it had been a joy to wear during the trip.

    MN Strap

    Love the MN Strap, I obviously have weird size wrists NATO's and most other bracelet straps never seem to be able to fit me and can't adjust them enough thats a decent fit. Only my MN and my Rolex Glidelock bracelet seem to fit me properly ... they are fairly expensive but worth it for the comfort.

    Nice! It does suit a brown leather strap. Was looking at one of the timefactor ones.

    I had originally had it fitted to one of Eddies black bunds but wanted something more heavy duty and pliable, hence the Steveo

    Looks good! Steveo also has a nice brown leather NATO which might look quite nice on the 18

    I have just acquired 70, first impressions are good, very tidy a lot of watch for the money.

    sits a bit high and the bezel clicks arenít as Ďsharpí as I would like.

    Mine just arrived and I love it. First precista as well. Great gesture to set the time correctly before shipping!!

    The matt look and case shape look great. Very light and comfortable.

    Already looking at more straps for this one so this thread helps.

    Great watch, did you get it via the "bulk buy" the Dutch Horlogeforum initiated?

    Eddie's even more famous now in the Netherlands ;)
    Got a new watch, divers watch it is, had to drown the bastard to get it!

    Had mine for about six weeks now, set the time when it arrived using my Junghans radio control as the reference and so far they remain totally in sync, no appreciable gain or loss with the PRS; the COSC certificate implied fantastic performance so I shouldnt be surprised but I am. Its a great watch for the money and on the Steveo BUND leather that I bought for it, wears really comfortably.

    Thanks.

    The strap was from Watch Obsession: https://www.watchobsession.co.uk/col...buckle-keepers

    I bought it to see how I liked the central stripe before going for one of Erikaís straps. As it happens, I like it a lot!

    Had to Google that strap and colour. Looks a bit dark to me but thats my taste. I like it on some of the sand brown straps above. Would check in this thread for similar colour straps.

    Canít find it on a precista, this the look you are after?
