    Buying a Parnis? Read this first!

    Mine was bought from an eBay seller, so it was a bit of a gamble, but they had nearly 2000 positive feedbacks. Anyhow, it arrived promptly, in good condition, and the strap doesn't reflect the horror stories I've read on WUS. I mean, it's not exactly Getat quality, but it is fine for the price I paid, nice and comfy and looks good:

    Lol! Just flicking through my photos to find those pics and I saw this other one too. Forgot about this one! It's another eBay 'special', and is also brilliant - again with a great thick leather strap.

    I have probably been lucky, and would probably buy from an 'approved' supplier next time, but if you don't mind a gamble, eBay can be worth a try.

    After you've had it a month or two; perhaps give us a short review of how the watch has performed and your impressions at that time
    Well, it has been a month, and this watch continues to be my most accurate mechanical watch. In the last 12 hours, for example, it is tracking at +0s to NIST and to my Casio GShock Atomic, which is synchronized. I will say that I am pretty easy on my watches and do not bang them up much, but the crystal and case have remained spotless on this one. All in all, a great value, and the seller proved to be trustworthy in my case.

    It looks great, as well. I am wearing it today, on a Black with blue stitching Hadley Roma carbon fiber strap:

    Thanks a lot Ric for this helpful topic... But may I ask you to add the store links of these dealers... Google is giving many results so it is not easy for n00bs like me to find the right one xD

    Based on this thread, it looks like pariswatches.net, parniswatches.com and eBay seller Wangxiaohong522 are one and the same:

    I can't speak for the ebay seller, but the other two are the same seller. I have purchased several watches from Wilson at parniswatch.net and his service has been excellent. He also is the rare seller who really gives fast response to email requests. I did have a problem with one of his watches and he was very quick to replace it. Highly recommended.
