    Great piece from Ric, Thanks for writing and for all the information.

    I recently took a punt on a Parnis, albeit a "top end" model with Sapphire glass and a Miyota engine, and when it arrived I have to say that I was blown away by the quality and finish.

    I have enclosed a picture, after I had changed the strap for a good quality silicone black with white stitching 22mm number. The watch doesn't seem to have a model name or number. It's pretty chunky at 43mm without the crown, and has vintage style Snowflake hands, and a funky 70's style bezel. It feels very well made, and I'm overall very impressed. This model is relatively new, I think, and is available on the 'bay in the UK for around £145. If anybody does knw the name of this one, I'd be interested to know? It's almost a Black Bay tribute... With a funky bezel insert.

    I have another Parnis on order, this time a Marina Militare "homage" handwinding, 44mm. This one is coming from China, so I'll report back on that experience once I've received it.

    ATB,

    Matt.D.
    Matt,

    Which ebay seller did you purchase from? I've noticed this one and thought it was pretty interesting. Mind posting a wrist shot?

The first two are good to go via Ebay distributors, whilst the last goes onto the streets of Hong Kong to sell to tourists. Sad to say, but that's the truth of what goes on.

    You have evidence of this?

    Re: Buying a Parnis? Read this first!

    Hello fellas, does anyone know if this site : Parnis|Parnis Watch|Marina Militare|Garton|Parnis Warch is trustable? I did some post searching on WUS and found the following post:
    "Whatever you do, do NOT use parniswatch.com, I ordered some wathces on March 3, paid for shipment with Fedex... Since then, no tracking no, no confirmation email no nothing - the email posted on their site belongs to someone else and they don't respond to any emails on the address I "paypaled" them the money. In short, do NOT ABSOLUTELY use parniswatch.com"

    from here:Safe online store to buy a Parnis watch? . However, since the post is so outdated, I will ask once again, is the website safe and trustable?

    You'll be waiting quite a while.

    Do your own research and reply here when you have evidence to the contrary.

    That's kind of a silly answer when your accusation would be grounds for Parnis branded watches being banned on the forum.

    Exactly as I thought, no evidence. Next time think before you post, or somebody might call you out on it and make you look stupid.

    No you don't.

    A proper analysis would get me into replica discussion territory, and hence banned. So as I said do your own research and see where it goes to. Weston and dfl3506 I assume that your hearts are in the right place, and you assume innocent unless proven and all that. Fair enough.

    Seek and ye shall find, chaps.
