    Broadarrow PRS3 - Colours

    Did the Broadarrow PRS3 ever get produced with a yellow dial?

    I understand that this watch wears a little smaller than the later Prescista PRS3 LE, does anyone have any side by side comparison shots?

    Thanks
    James

    There was no Yellow - only a black dial / or orange dial.
    The PRS3 had a steel case / the PRS4 had a black PVD case.
    The PRS11 was an automatic with plongeur hands.
    And there were 25x PRS3 quartz made with dreadnought hands.

    The weight and the thickness is less bulky with the older Broadarrow version.
    Dimension are about 1mm less than the current PRS3, or PRS3 LE.
    As a motor bike rider, the Broadarrow always sat under the sleeve of my jackets better than the LE.

    Please excuse the colours and the low resolution of these old pictures.

    I believe it was the PRS-11 that Eddie did with Dreadnought hands.

    The 25x specials with Dreadnought hands are obviously very rare, and not seen very often.
    I thought it was the quartz version. My mistake.

    These are borrowed photos from google.

    PRS-11 auto = Plongeur hands (with black edges)


    And with Dreadnought hands (with white hour hand / orange minute hand)
