    Production won't start before April, I don't want anymore stock before my year end.

    I really liked the old one (size was spot on) except for the hour and minute hands, I just canít seem to see them (eyesight starting to go) so I sold and then repurchased and sold again.
    Still look and think maybe I should get another and have the hands changed.

    Yes. The auto PRS-40 is due within the next fortnight and then that's it until after April.

    Think 42mm would look weird with this watch though? Maybe 40mm might work.

    The normal size is too small for me too I feel, which is a shame because I really like the style. Had the old one twice.

    The small watch fans are being listened to with the PRS-25, Military and Ministry models. Would be nice to have an option for a slightly bigger size for the PRS-10.

    Same here, such a shame the hands aren't painted white.

    The black date wheel model looks good

    Does anyone know what these sold for last time?

    I somehow doubt it, given what Silvermans are now asking for a bog standard CWC G10.

    Better lume and sapphire crystal will bump the price up no doubt. Would have been good if it was a Precidrive movement to get one over on CWC.

    Precidrive would have bumped the price up even further and the 10 year battery life of the Ronda outweighs the slightly better accuracy (IMO).

    CWC with flat sapphire is £289, the Precista with box sapphire won't be close to that.

    Will it still have the Black Date option? I note your drawing was showing the White.

    Whilst I like the PRS-10 (I where mine as my 'weekend' watch all the time) I think its a bit of a shame your more 'futuristic' versions won't be making it off the drawing board.

    Is the drawing the final version? Or will there be a no date variant?

    This is the one I sold. Wow - I bought it nearly 9 years ago.

    Very nice. I bought one from the Forum. My Father still has it. My only dislike was the lug width, which was too wide for the case, and spoiled the proportions.

    I notice the specs call for bead blasted hands. That might help with legibility. I'm pretty sure my old PRS-10 had polished hands. Looking forward to these becoming a reality.

    Yes, I'm inclined to agree about that aspect of it.

    I think my cwc is 19mm but I have a 20mm NATO on it and the proportions work ok for me. Did the previous prs-10 have standard spring bars or fixed?

    I think the PRS-10 I've got has 20mm lugs - must admit I think the lug width works well with it; hey-ho

    Thanks

    A new one would be an upgrade to the CWC in a few areas

    I'm in when these are released
