When I first looked at the pic yesterday I also thought "nice" and "artistic". Having looked again today I'm now wondering whether she's actually squatting for the purpose of a good "dump"... on the watch of your desire !! Maybe that's just me :oops:

I too bought a B - at the time I bought it the A was out of stock - it's stupidly, wonderfully high, and I like it a lot. I can't (yet) bring myself to buy a second PRS-50 or replace the B with the A, but I do like the look of the A, I'm especially attracted to the lumed bezel.

I don't know if you have bought from Timefactors before, but don't worry about quality/finish or customer service - all very good, especially given the keen pricing.

A nearly watch for me. I much prefer the Helson Skin Diver as a FF homage.

I do prefer the Helson Skin diver for aestethical reasons... But the precista is a very good watch, well made and reliable, when Helson watches, wich are supposed to be divers watches too, have real waterproofness (don't know if the word exists :D ) problems (at least the six ones I personnaly know...)
