    £195. There will be a PRS-1 dialled version of the Speedbird III when I get the new stock.

    I have an original Goldbird which I love, the warranty card says PRS-1 but the case back says PRS-7.

    Why was that?

    Then you must have the PRS-7 with the PRS-1 dial.

    I bought it second hand around 3.5 years ago; since which it's never missed a beat. I had it serviced last year and took the opportunity to take out the date wheel.

    Apart from my own number 1, I still have number 2 which I was saving for my nephew's 18th birthday. When I gave it to him, he said he'd rather have one of the SKX007 I was selling at the time.

    I often wondered what PRS stands for - People's Republic of Sheffield?

    Platts -- Eddie's surname.

    Richmond -- his mother's maiden name.
