    What a weak cop-out! No analysis needed just some evidence to back up your statement, which we both know you don't have. However, I am happy to be proven wrong, just send me your evidence as a PM and then you run no risk of being banned. Right?

    Re: Buying a Parnis? Read this first!

    Hi guys,

    I purchased the parnis gmt from bluesky537 from eBay which I believe is the famous man bush guy. After a couple of days, I noticed the date only moves half way. When I rotate the dial manually (to adjust the time), it corrected itself (shows the full date on the date window) around 10PM but then when it reaches 12AM, the date only move half-way. The watch itself keeps good time so far (+10 sec in a week). I can adjust it manually every day, by turning the crown forward (like when you adjusting the date) to get the full date in view, but it's just annoying.

    Anyone has any issue with date window in Parnis watch? Is this basically a mechanical issue, hence, nothing I can do OR just something misaligned that I can take to the watch repair shop to fix it?

    Thank you all. This is a great thread by the way.

    Cheers.

    Looks great, very tempted to get the red bezel, but baulk at paying $200 for one.

    Yup. I actually did. He recommended me to take it to my local shop to inspect, which I did. The guy at the shop told me that most likely the gear has worn out. He also mentioned that the movement is not common so it may be expensive to get and he doesn't know how long it takes to order. I understand it is a cheap watch, don't really expect a lot from the watch but at least a fully working watch when you purchase it new

    So, I emailed the seller back and he apologized for the issue and ask to send the watch back. I was ready to just get another one, since it's a hassle to send the watch back and the time to go back and forth. He was nice enough to offer me to pay the shipping charge to ship the watch back. As he is nice enough to do that, I took it upon myself to show him how much would it cost to ship the item back...which is quite high from the US for registered mail (around $30). He said not to worry and just ship it back, even though he was really surprise on how much the shipping cost was. I was surprise with his response and taken aback on how great the service is for this watch He probably could try to sell me another watch for lower price to cover the issue I'm having.

    Long story short - I shipped the watch back. Took about a week to reach China, but another week to reach his place. The tracking stopped as soon as the parcel arrived in China which worries me a bit. I was not able to track the package to the final destination. Closer to the end of the 2nd week, I received an email from him that he received the watch and will look into it. A couple of hours later, he sent another email that a new watch is in the mail with tracking number provided

    Got the new watch back a week later and here are some pictures

    The difference from the first watch I received:
    • the date window, ofcourse is now fully working
    • the lume (not great) but on the old watch some of the hour markers were missing the lume This is not a big deal at all for me but maybe this one actually went to QC
    • the new watch run slow for about 6 sec/day and somewhat steady after 5 days (keep the lost between -28 to -30 secs) of about 8 hrs of daily wear (not really active wear as I have a desk job). Put it in different positions to hopefully make it faster (I prefer faster), but no difference. Any suggestion?


    The not so great lume, oh well at least they're all there

    Cheers.

    Confused Re: Buying a Parnis? Read this first!

    I think that this parnis model is offered with a myota movement for $30 more. I am wondering which movement the watch has. I think you said the movement was rare according to the watchsmith that you brought it to.

    I know what you're saying, but this is a a "top -end" model. It has the Miyota super reliable movement, sapphire glass, and just feels very well put together. I have another, cheaper Parnis, and the build quality difference is easily worth the extra money - Hope this helps you.

    Also, I'm wondering if this particular model is a limited edition? i ask as mine has the nuber 187 engraved on the back of the case, whereas the only other pictures I've seen feature different 3 digit numbers.

    ATB,

    Matt.
