Its back...

Well not really.... After 10 years the Dreadnought PRS-2 was launched, the Dreadnought is back, but with a twist. It now has a GMT complication. Not only that, the new Dreadnought, reference PRS-21, has been redesigned and rebuilt from the ground up. The new Dreadnought has a larger visible dial area, a new thinner case and the GMT complication. All these without compromising the characteristics that made the original Dreadnought popular. It also has new name, the Dreadnought Voyager GMT PRS-21. 

The watch comes in at 42.4mm in diameter and is 14.5mm thick. The 316L stainless steel case is bead blasted and has a 22mm lug width. It is powered by an Elaboree grade ETA 2893-2 21 jewel automatic movement offering quick-set date functionality.
