They are decent watches though.

Well, at least it's better than naming the brand "pigeon", or, more truthfully "sky-rat" :P
I do concur, despite the name, nice watches though :D
Herc would be my pick. It's almost a guttural utterance, like the sound someone makes when punched in the gut -- "Herc!" :P
Though I suppose it could sound cool, like a name of one of Robert E. Howard's characters: "Behold the mighty barbarian-chief Herc! Slayer of the Gonad-beast!" :P

And I like the watch all things considered.
But is it properly Parliss or Parlee??

How to decipher Rolexspeak:
Perpetual means Automatic; Datejust lets you adjust the date; A Superlative Chronometre is COSC certified; A Rolex President has an adjustable day and date
You just dread wearing some watches because of the comments you'll eventually have to deal with:
Junkers: "No, no, no. It's pronounced with a "Y" not a "J".... stop laughing.... Oh, shut up!"
Titoni: "No, the "T-I-T" is pronounced like in "Titan" not like..... stop laughing.... Oh, shut up!"
Limes: "Limes, eh? You sure that's not a lemon? Har-har-har.
Vixa: Unfortunately sounds very similar to a derogatory word in German which has the same meaning that "wanker" originally had.
Formex: Sounds like a condom brand: "Formex-- made for men, but women like them too!"
The best watch is the one that makes you happiest.... and tells the time.
Bathys... Party because I detest the look of their watches (all of 'em), and partly because I always think of some waterheaded little knuckle dragger screaming at the top of his lungs at his mother, "Mommy NO!!! Me no like take a bathys!!!"
DWATCH... I don't think I have to tell you why on that one, simple creative bankruptcy I'd say. No offense Alon, you know I love your design and I've already pre-ordered one, so obviously it doesn't bother me enough.
Invicta... At first I thought the name was really cool, but then I watched some Judge Judy episode and heard this ignorant hooligan ranting about an illegal search the lead to his "inviction", and I just can't look at it the same.
Omega... Again, at first I enjoyed the almost omnipotence that the name exuded, but then I learned the definition of the term, and well... that should be self explanatory. Not a good thing to define one's watches, poor choice there OMEGA!!!
Glycine... Because every time I see the name written or hear it spoken I think of that increasingly lame and redundant Bush song, Glycerine.
Croton... Again, should be self-explanatory, and I think someone else already mentioned this, but it's a salad topping, period. Also sounds like some vulgar spew that would come of the mouth of an American learning the correct pronunciations of various Russian or Slavic dialects.
I could go on, and basically call out any and every watch company, but I haven't either the time or patience. Besides, you get the point.
It is pastrami? Is it parmesan cheese? Is it Paganini the composer? NO!!! It's Panini, the sandwich watch!!!!!
