SOLD!!!This is a gently used TimeFactors Precista PRS-82 Royal Navy Diver reissue. Purchased September 2016 new from Time Factors in the UK.

Please note- this has the new old stock ETA 2783 movement!

SPECS (Time Factors Website):

  • 316L stainless steel, brushed finish
  • Diameter Bezel 40mm, 45mm across including crown
  • Lug to lug height 47mm
  • Thickness 14mm to the top of the bombé crystal
  • Lug spacing 20mm
  • Anti-magnetic 4800 A/m
  • Water resistance 200m
  • Weight 98 grammes with strap and buckle
  • Screw back, screw down crown, unidirectional 120 click bezel


It's in excellent condition, 8.5/10. The case has a very minor nick between 3-4 on bottom of case. Tried to capture in photos, but my iPhone 8 couldn't even pick it up. There is a tiny hairline scratch on side of case by top of lug from a strap change. Again, so small the camera couldn't pick it up-could absolutely be buffed out. The bezel is clean and the slightly domed crystal is scratch-free. Comes with the original, unworn silicone strap, original nato strap, leather carrying case

From the Time Factor's Website:

"The Precista Royal Navy diver is arguably the rarest of all British issued dive watches, being issued in 1981 and 1982 only. The stock number is 0552/923-7697 which curiously, was also the number used on Rolex and CWC issued divers around this time. I have seen only two examples offered for sale in the last 12 months and both commanded a price in excess of £2,000. Hardly Milsub prices but nonetheless, higher than anyone would have thought possible a few years ago. Apart from the asymmetrical case, the most distinctive feature of this model is the hands; the hands have two familiar names, one of them is "snake head" hands and you'll have to use Google for the other name ;-) The luminous is the same "vintage lume" used on the dials of the Precista PRS-20 California dial. The Precista PRS-82 is guaranteed for 2 years." -Time Factors
