    Wow... is that a snake eating its tail? Did you know, it is a symbol of the process of self-knowledge? I did not know that myself until quite recently.

    Mine arrived yesterday and I’m loving it. It has a lovely weight to it, especially swapping straight from my Aerospace, and is so comfy on the wrist.

    Arrived today (thanks to my wife racing to collect from the PO because she was out when the postie came). It's just as nice as I'd hoped.

    And now with an image:



    On a perlon. Pic makes it look a touch big for my wrist, but actually it's fine. Liking it a lot!

    Enormously happy so far with the PRS-40 Automatic. Very comfy on the wrist (mine's on a perlon), beautifully clear to read, and seems to be keeping to about +2 per day so far! There is something very pleasing about the case design.

    Lookin good Dave especially when it's closer to the wrist on the perlon.

    Still keeping about +2spd? Mine is around -8spd at best.

    Yep, mine seems very consistent so far.

    Great pic Dave.

    The case design is really unique, and comfy as well.

    My quartz version is a sturdy holiday watch and has been a regular visitor to the South American jungle with me.
    Got a new watch, divers watch it is, had to drown the bastard to get it!

    Pleased with my purchase

    My PRS 40 arrived on Tuesday. Really pleased with what is both a distinctive design and niche manufacturer.

    This watch is the reason I applied to this forum.

    Is the chrono actually going ahead at some point? Must admit it looks really, really good as I love chronos , but I think I must have missed the thread about this.

    New PRS-40 arrived a couple of days back, here it is whilst I was enjoying the hammock weather. Changed the standard grey strap for something a bit more summer-Hawaiian-shirt-ish...

    Most things that can be said about the design have probably already been said, it's an interesting and enjoyable departure from the norm. Certainly looks different to anything else in my collection - it's got the same chunky, utilitarian vibe that classic IBM ThinkPads had going on. The build is good and solid, and the hands are perfectly lined up. You wouldn't think that would be remarkable but I've seen too many watches at this kind of price point that shouldn't have got through QC.

    The movement looks to be running at around the -8 to -12 per day area, which is actually closer to true than any of the Seiko autos I've picked up. And another plus point for the design - the crown is very well protected without an unnecessary screw-down mechanism, making quick adjustments much less fiddly.

    Overall, very impressed.
