"I got my first watch as a child - a beautiful blue one, a PRIM Sport model. I have it to this day and it still reliably works. I used to wear it always and everywhere for years, at school, athletic oval or in water. And it still kept fine. Today, I am not different, just a bit older. But as well as at that time, I tend to choose a watch able to fulfil those demands, withstand extreme conditions of archaeological excavations in deserts or deeply under the ground, a watch resistant and still looking great. Therefore, I again go for the brand PRIM, but this time it's Orlik."
