This Smiths prs29A is looking for a new home. I've been wearing a different 3-hander for some time now, and feeling guilty keeping it in the watchbox without wearing it. I'm the original owner. Purchased direct from Eddie at TimeFactors in October of 2018.

The PRS-29a is the best modern interpretation of the W10 watch used by the British Military in the late 60s. True to size / form, and powered by a manual wind, hacking ETA movement. (the modern quartz G10 watches are way less fun)

This watch (SN 827/18) is in very good condition. There's one hairline scratch on the back of the caseback, due to me being clumsy with a nato strap change, and probably a few tiny marks around the sides of the case, but nothing I can capture effectively in a pic.

Comes in timefactors travel case with their grey NATO (only worn a few times), plus an additional navy / grey edge nato (used), and a grey/brown watchgecko vegetable tanned Cottingham leather strap (never worn) and some extra 18mm springbars.

I've got a great 18mm blue eulit perlon that I used with the watch most often. I'm planning on keeping it, but can toss in for an extra $10 if the buyer wants it.

Asking $460, shipped and fully insured via FedEx in ConUS.
