    Roger that. Since they claim to be a US based company I'm willing to give them the chance to honor their warranty claims and truly hope that they will. Nothing against the completely Chinese sellers but business is done a little differently in the states, at least from a consumer's perspective. But, true, the reality is who knows if they will honor their warranty and if they'll even be around for two years. But, if it works out, they could be a very good alternative for sourcing Parnis watches.


    I plan on building my collection and the Parnis will be one part of it. Already have my eye on some Orients as well with some other more expensive foundational pieces. For some reason Seikos don't do much for me.

    Word Chico! My thoughts exactly!

    Oh excellent, thank you! My grail is a 45 po, all black... The reason why I didn't buy this parnis, and bought a pam 1950 bronzo homage, is I think one day I'll actually buy the omega because it's reasonably priced
