    Iíve owned a number is TF watches over the years and just this morning looked at the PRS 40 chrono thread for the first time. Iíd previously really liked the 3 hand quartz version but missed the boat on those.
    Logged on around 2ish and was surprised that I didnít seem to have an account so spent ages Inputting details.It was to my surprise and shock after all that that I seem to have purchased a 3 dial prs 40 chrono.
    Donít want to get too excited in case thereís a mistake.

    Cheers
    Neil

    There is a short write-up on the chrono on W&W.

    Received mine today (would have been yesterday except I had to reschedule the delivery because I was out all day). I opted for the three subdial design. This is the first bullhead I've had and I really like it. I wear my watches on my right wrist and so the bullhead design makes it very convenient for me operate the watch. Aesthetically I like the "Mad Max"-ish styling of the watch and the heavy metal furniture of the supplied Rhino strap seem to suits it well. Although access the crown is limited compared to a more conventional design, it doesn't matter since adjusting the time is very easy with the edge of your thumb.

    All in all, I'm a happy watch collector with this watch. Thank you, Eddie!

    Why aren't more watches, especially chronos, built as bullheads?

    It has arrived. Great job Eddie. I am 99.9% happy but I am not going to say here what makes me 0.1% unhappy as I am writing a small review... also, I want to see if anyone else notices...

    I'll try to take a pic later on. It is really downcast down here in The Smoke. Great day for a new watch.

    I hate that little detail. It spoils everything for me (more about that later). But it doesn't change my appreciation of the rest of the watch. I just wish it wasn't there.

    Hey. Apologies if there is disappointment caused by the change to the two dial variant. That was an oversight on my part regarding the photos. The watch used in the photos was a prototype and Iíd forgot about the change.

    Apology accepted. It would have been better if one knew beforehand that's all.

    I fully understand. It may seem unbelievable but this post was the first time I actually realised.

    Itís definitely an oversight. The photos were taken and uploaded quite a while ago so maybe werenít fresh enough in the mind for the difference to be apparent.

    Apologies anyway.

    My 3 register model has just been delivered.

    I have put it on a Bond style woven single pass from The Strap Tailor.



    Very pleased with this piece for the cost.

    Love this watch, thanks Eddie and the guys at Timefactors. Apologies for the poor photos, also my wrist is only 6.5 inches, this watch would work better on a beefier wrist.

    I have a 2 sub dial version PRS40 for sale at the TFís RRP £235 if anyone is interested. I bought both so I could pick and I am keeping the 3 sub dial version. I donít want to eBay it if I can help it.

    It looks like "a date". I've stopped worrying about it. It was the initial unexpected shock. First World problems.

    Had the same thought, pleased to see the Ⓛ there.

    My 3 subdial 40 made it safely to the USA yesterday morning. I liked the concept back in 2018, and I love the way it turned out!
    Bravo!

    Oh, that would be nice. And would be very affordable at £235 meaning that one of each might be popular.

    Thanks. The light blue stripe is actually light grey but the pics have come out a weird colour.

    If only I can remember which button does what. Instinct says that the "top right" is the "start button".

    I know this timepiece isn't available at the moment (will it be?), but I seem to be increasingly drawn to it again. I just got a Mission Timer too last week; maybe it's just time for me to get back into buying watches again!

    I have a question for owners of this watch (and i ask it coming from the Lemania-like legibility of the Mission Timer), how readable are the registers on the chrono function of this watch in real world use?
