  1. FS: Timefactors PRS-1 Speedbird - First Edition

    Watches - Private Sellers and Sponsors
    For sale is a Timefactors Speedbird PRS-1, the original. 300 of these were made by Eddie Platts. Arguably this is the watch that started the “microbrand” movement, before there was Kickstarter, etc… Just one man toiling to make quality watches at fractions of the cost of the name brands, with...
  2. FS: Original Timefactors PRS-12 Speedbird 1903

    Watches - Private Sellers and Sponsors
    For sale is a clean and all documents Speedbird 1903. Eddie made 100 of these and they almost never come up for sale. I bought this one about 1-1/2 years ago, had it overhauled, and it’s in very good condition. It’s a neat watch with the clean panda dial and blued hands. It includes the...

  4. WTB Timefactors Speedbird III (PRS-22) sterile dial

    WTB - Wanted to Buy
    As the title says, I'm on the hunt for one of these without the branding on the dial (previous version). I'm hoping to find one within the USA since I want to avoid the headache of dealing with customs, international shipping, etc. Let me know if you have one and how much you'd like for it...
  5. Help finding affordable basic pilot

    Pilots' & Military watches
    Hey everyone: I have been on the hunt for something basic similar to the Speedbird [http://www.vwvortex.co.uk/images/prs22/large/pic45.jpg]. A new Speedbird, however, is just a little out of my budget right now. Does anyone have any suggestions for a similar watch but a little cheaper? Basic...

    Up for sale is a three month old Speedbird III fitted with the top grade ETA 2824. I purchased it directly from Timefactors. The watch has scratches on back of lugs from bracelet removal. The bracelet is unworn, unadjusted, and is still covered with protective plastic. I removed the bracelet...
  7. Your first mechanical?

    Public Forum
    Your first mechanical… So, I’ve finally done it. After a lifetime of quartz I’ve bought my first mechanical (or rather my wife has bought it for me for our anniversary) A Speedbird 3 from Timefactors in Britain. What I like about this watch: It’s mechanical – no electromagnetism just old...

  14. Put my new Voow Pepsi on some Nato Straps...pics

    Affordable watches
    I've already posted my initial impressions of this watch and they still hold true. I'd add at this point, though, that getting the bracelet off is a chore. Space for the springbars to be accessed isn't as consistent or as clearly defined as it should be. Also, between the lugs is unfinished...
  15. Purchased and now waiting on this watch strap combo... Don't if it'll work.

    Affordable watches
    I just purchased a pepsi Voow yesterday on impulse and a timefactors speedbird Nato strap.I'm not sure how the combo will look. The speedbird nato coloring may be a little too much off shade of the pepsi bezel. It's hard to tell. The lighting effects the color of each. I've seen two different...
