    According to the tracking info, it's "out for delivery." I should get it today.

    Re: Post up your Parnis!

    Hi guys, I've been reading extensively through this forum and many others regarding the Parnis Power Reserve (blue hands white dial). From what I've gathered, it is no longer being made with a particular Seagull movement and the new ones now have silver dials and different movements.

    I'm looking for any place that still carries the white dial version that can ship to Canada. Sites like manbu no longer carry the white dial and only the silver dial, while jackson advertises his model as a white dial but I've read that it's actually the silver version.

    The only other site that might have it seems to be parniswatch com, otherwise I would probably go with an ebay user by the name of wenping1970 (who seems to be the only ebay vendor to sell the white dial). Wenping prices his variants a bit higher than most so I would rather try to look for alternatives before purchasing from him.

    Confirmations would be much appreciated, thanks!

    These were done for around $200.00 US. Still playing around with different straps/ bracelets. I really like the rose gold with rose gold bracelet.

    Dear Watchhouse, I never thought it would happen to me.

    I got a Parnis today. I like the design, colour, price, and my first power reserve indicator.

    I'll probably get laughed out of this thread for daring to suggest a 43mm watch is huge. My favourite size is 37-38mm. I need to get used to wearing a super hero amulet on my wrist. I'm coming around to it, because reservations about size aside, here's what I like:

    The de-saturated dark blue dial. With a cool sunburst texturing. Difficult for me to photograph, as I think there's no anti-reflective coating on the crystal. You all probably know the colour.

    Also, rare for a Chinese watch, the utter lack of a serif font. Yay! (Probably because of the Swiss watch this one mimics).

    Look how new it is: The power reserve meter hasn't even reached 0 yet. The watch is running on emergency fuel reserves!

    The applied numerals. It's truly 3-D! Nice.

    Lots to look at on the rear side, too.

    And a regular crown to boot. I don't like those big jewel-shaped crowns.

    So with lots of features I like, I'm now just getting used to the size. The short lugs help .

    Cheers. See you in the WRUW threads.
