    I have just received a MM Homage from Parnis Watch|Marina Militare - Parnishop.
    All I can say is that the customer service has been absolutely amazing. The quality of watch is beyond what I expected for just over $100. This watch easily looks as good as the ones in my collection worth $1000. I honestly can't believe this quality!
    Don't know about the quality of the movement, but if it is like the exterior, I'll be extremely happy.
    The quality is beyond what I expected!

    Here's mine....a little thicker than I hoped. I don't need a dress watch but i liked the simple style of some of the expensive ones.

    I recently bought one Parnis and I'm relieved to see seller on Ric's list. I'll share my thoughts about it as soon as I get it (perhaps in a month).

    Well I recieved my watch. It is the 40mm non sterile GMT master with the red hand purchased from ebay seller xiaosong12580. I will have to say it looks amazing and is very solid with almost no rattle. I own watches from many affordable type brands and this thing is great. Off the bat the cons would be sharp edges on the band and the lume is only on the hands but what do you expect. The crystal does appear to be sapphire glass with the water droplet test. So far it seems pretty accurate haven't tested extensively though. The movement hacks and is windable. Setting the watch i had no problems and everything is nice and smooth for a sub 100 dollar watch. Bezel is nice and everything lines up properly. I went with the non sterile because sometimes they look odd with nothing on the face imo even though it says parnis hahaha. Overall worth the money as long as it holds up.Name:  20150123_110551.jpg

    I'm about 3 weeks into Parnis ownership. At least I think it's a Parnis. It's a sterile Sub. It has a better fit and finish and it's more accurate than the Seiko 007 I bought in November.
    It's also still working when the 007 croaked after 10 days.

    Is this some original model from Parnis? I'm interested in it, since it would come from the UK, i think it looks pretty neat:

    No it's based on the £11k IWC top gun pilot watch, good looking watch though!

    According to the seller it has a myota movement, i asked him if he could supply a "seethroug case" (not sure if this is the word). If he can, i think i'll have to jump on it...
