    Re: Now that we are on the subject of Parnis...

    I glanced over the Parnis website and saw many different models. Some I know the obvious homage-to-original relationship but I feel there are models now that are just an inch more on the original side.

    I wish that if someone had the time, they could do a side by side on the not so obvious ones or point out the ones that are slightly original. I've search but I haven't found such comparison or thread.

    The Miyota 82xx are much like some Omega movements of old. Sturdy warriors.

    I'm curios as to buying Parnis over Sea-Gull. Is it just the watches styles?

    Both have some great looking pieces.

    My last Parnis has just arrived. The seller says it has a Japanese movement, so, since it lacks hacking, I suppose it's a Miyota 8215. Well finished and the bracelet is super.

    A "Swiss" detail: the perlage on the hidden side of the clasp.

    I have a Parnis with the regulator being halfway between the "0" and the "-". Does this indicate that there is or isn't oil in it?

    It's a regulator arm, not a dipstick

    ...but seriously, the indication of whether or not it is oiled is observation of the pivots under magnification.

    Re: Now that we are on the subject of Parnis...

    You should also be able to take a very small piece of white cotton with tweezers, and with the quick touch between gears get the slightest hint of silicone based lubricant that will show a change in the fabric. I think linen from a sacrificed new handkerchief is useful but I mean a really small pice using a bright lamp, magnification visor with tweezers and do not touch but for a micro second.

    If you aren't comfortable with working on movements I wouldn't try this but if it is keeping good time, I wouldn't risk it.

    I would be more worried about over lubricantion or contamination which should be easier to detect swabbing out the inside of the case, using the same technique but looking for darkened lubricant. With this you are not directly touching the gear train. You could always try for a touch of a top part of the gear train, but again you should have some assembly, disassembly experience with movements, or just accept it for what it is.

    Each time you pull a case back you can easily introduce more dust and contamination.
