    Re: Buying a Parnis? Read this first!

    I am looking to purchase a sterile dial dress watch from Dajiwatch. I noticed their standard shipping method already includes insurance; is there a specific reason I should use EMS @+$20? I assume the regular shipping does not include tracking, but is it way more rough with the packages or something?

    Re: Buying a Parnis? Read this first!

    Hello to all. I just joined the forum, after finding this thread via Google.
    A few words of introduction as I didn't find a dedicated section (I may have missed it). I've worked as a sales manager for 15 years in the ceramic, then special metals industry. I've had occasional business selling special materials to watch case makers for high-end brands and I fell in love with the swiss watch industry.
    The watches I would like to own are far out of reach, financially speaking. I've had the joy of holding in my hands a Richard Mille RM 005, multiple Panerais, a MontBlanc tantalum diver (100th anniversary edition), some beautiful Daniel Roth models, and I've seen a Quenttin tourbillon "stand up" out of its box (but not touched it). Great memories.
    I own a modest Revue Thommen submariner homage, love it.
    I've just bought a MM from one of the sources listed in page 1 and a leather strap to replace stock SS. Special thank you to Ric for the post, by the way.

    Same question to ask. Is it worth to pay 20$ extra for EMS (safety wise, waiting period is irrelevant for me), wheres the standard mailing methog is claimed to be 'registrated airmail'?

    Thaks for sharing!

    Sterile parnis Milgaus came , super pleased with the item . Seems like the workmanship is quite good and feels solid , nothing about it makes me say cheap , although the price was ...

    I couldn't be happier wearing this sterile faced sorta Milgaus style homage

    I know there are horror stories out there , but I won't hesitate using bluesky537 for future purchases .

    I've had good luck with http://www.mywatchcode.com/

    They sell some items for less on their eBay page too. Shipping was slow but watch arrived in good condition. The strap on the Parnis I just bought was much better quality than my previous Corgeut purchase.

    Kind of Milgauss homage?? It is a homage

    looks great though. I've been very tempted by one of those

    Have any of you had the water resistance tested and subsequently improved?

    I purchased an inexpensive 22mm deBeer Black Teju Lizard-Grain leather strap for my Parnis GMT. Looks nice; not bad for a $75 watch and $25 strap!

    Hi Everyone, I'm new here and I've been looking for a cheap diver/GMT and a dressier watch, I stumbled across Parnis and they looked like really good deals. Does anyone have any experience with parniswatch.pro Because their stock has a lot more than the stores mentioned in the original post. If not I think I'll buy from one of the recommended stores. Thanks
