Precista PRS-68

The guys (Eddie) at Time Factors have indeed been busy. They will launching a number of models in the next couple of months with the PRS-30 being one of the most interesting model. 

The PRS-30 (prototype?). Yes, it is bronze.

Anyway, we are focusing on their latest launch, the PRS-68. The PRS-68 is a homage to a great diver watch launch over 40 years ago. Here is the picture of the PRS-68. Any guess?
