    Thanks for all your help Reno. I am really on the edge with this watch now, I love how it looks. But I am fearful of the unique strap. Decisions decisions. I sent Manbush an email asking If he could get hold of It.
    So i think that will be my decision, If he gets it i'll buy, if he doesn't I won't lol.
    As long as the price Is right of course. I will post on here If i get It, Thanks again.

    I'd be interested by Manbush's answer… its shipping costs aren't so high

    It's 43mm, and a substantial watch, with excellent F&F, and and a hefty,solid link bracelet.The waves on the dial are not usually as distinct as shown in this full-sunlight view. It also keeps excellent time. I got it from Manb------, for a little over $100.

    Thank you for the info Ed. You make me want it even more. You say It's substantial, But to me 43mm Is smallish.
    All my watches are 46-48mm with one 44mm. But i do know that some watches wear bigger than others.
    Can i ask what is the width of your wrist?. Because it looks great on you. Mine is aprox 57mm.
    I really need to stay away from this thread before the wife kills me. She already thinks I have more watches than any one man could ever need.
    I try to explain It's my version of her shoes or Hand Bags But that only buys me so much leeway lol.
    Thanks Again.
    Ps What Is F&F?

    Re: Post up your Parnis!

    just a quick note...

    Any watch with 'Parnis' printed or stamped on it, is not really a Parnis. Nor are any of the watches that are sterile but called Parnis. They are all just cobbled together watches with a made up name put on them. Some excellently done, some middle of the road and some not so very good.

    Ok, I want somebody to stand up and incorporate the Parnis company and take responsibility for these mutts.
    Let's make this a valid and legitimate brand so we can get some control over the offerings and quality control. Once that is done, Parnis becomes a legitimate brand and people can collect with confidence that there will be value going into the future.

    Any takers?

    You know what would be awesome...if Sea-Gull took control of this name and made it a sub brand of watches offered by Tianjin!
