How different was your design - existing with logo, or totally bespoke?

 

We used an existing PRS design and had a logo put on the face, but we could have changed the Lume, Hands Numbers etc. He has them made for the batch to my knowledge

Give him a call Matt, he will bore you to death on the phone about watches, but he was a Drop Short, so that's probably why :)

Asked him a similar question a while back - he doesn't hold spares or work on them; what comes from his mnfr is how it stays.  I think his black everest is jinxed - this is the 4th iteration, none has looked 100%.

On the other hand, the one you pictured has a quasi-cult following - a modern watch you can actually sell immediately for more than you pay for it (small runs, limited sales windows).

Lots of love for Timefactors on here. I have been a fan for years and thought that I was the only one here with that affliction. My absolute favourite is the PRS-18Q, but it is definitely in the ‘tool watch’ category. On TZUK someone once described it as the ‘thinking man’s beater’. Sad to see that it is discontinued, but they do turn up secondhand.

I'm currently reviewing an Elliot and Brown special edition, MREW, watch, and as waterproof 200m, with very bright luminous markers and simple face, and also a really neat feature is the prismatic glass, being able to read the time easily at an acute angle. 2 straps, rubber and webbing, with retaining pins that screw in, not spring loaded bendy pins. I dont think the movement is anything too special, but it appears to keep time very well.
