"This is an iconic design known to almost all watch collectors.   There have been many homages to this watch over the years, some good and some not so good.   The previous version of the PRS-68 has been refined, reduced in size and fitted with a movement more in keeping with the watch.   The anti-magnetic properties have been increased to 20,000A/m by the use of an anti-magnetic movement cover and dial.   The luminous compound used has also been improved and is now Super Luminova X1-C3

The bezel insert is ceramic and also incorporates Super Luminova X1-C3.   The bezel itself is unidirectional with 120 clicks.

Like all Time Factors watches all of the components used are manufactured specifically for this watch (except for the movement), stock components are not used.

The Bracelet screws are not fully tightened to allow for easy first-time adjustment. After sizing please tighten and we suggest using a removable threadlock such as Loctite Blue 242 to secure the screws"
