Can anyone tell anything about this PRL 40R 3 piece? It's a few years old and I have no idea how to tell who made it, what model, etc. Good shape, though. (despite being a little dirty in pics).
You may want to reconsider your choice of gift. Giving a $150 watch as a gift is sort of like giving someone a 10 year old Honda, yea it's a car but it's the bottom of the barrel. But, if you're hellbent on giving a watch, Seiko, Timex, and Seagull are probably your best bets.
They are custom made. Haven't ordered yet so I can't tell you anything about the real quality.
