    I'm fairly certain this specific Parnis isn't made any more. However this is basically the same thing:

    First of all thank you for this topic. Great information on here. I've skim read to try and find information on the upgrades available from parniswatch.net

    Anyone have good words on the Sapphire and swan-neck upgrades? Are they worth it, does the sapphire seem legit?

    Swan neck is not at all worth it. Sapphire? Difficult to tell without a mass spectrometer. There is the "drop test" for water droplets, but this sometimes proves inconclusive.

    That's what I had in mind. The swan-neck upgrade I guess is for the "aesthetic look" more than anything else.

    Has anyone tried the water drop test on a watch coming from these guys?
    I'll probably get the sapphire upgrade for the sake of it anyways.

    I've been looking at getting a Parnis Marina, does anyone have the lug to lug distances for the 44mm or 42mm or 40mm models respectively? I'm trying to figure out what size would best fit my wrists with this style of watch. Example of each watch below.

    Hi fellas
    Just Want to share my Parnis Planet Ocean Homage 45mm
    Nice watch, well finished and keeps good time.
    Also has sapphire crystal and is the closest PO homage IMHO.
    Please let me know what you think.

    Please share your thoughts about this parnis.
    Cheers from Oz
