    I recieved this a few weeks ago, no Parnis brand marking but sold as such. Initial impression was very favourable, it had the look and feel of a much more expensive watch. The strap is a bit cheap and will be upgraded once it starts wearing out. Serial number stamped on the side, which is the same number on all of this type. The hands all line up correctly, the mechanism is non hacking. Time keeping seems reasonable and I've only had to reset the time when it wound down. The lume is pretty poor but that was expected.

    The winding mechanism soon became very stiff and I needed to hold the crown with a small pair of pliers. I heard reports of some watches being shipped unlubricated and have put in a few drops of oil which I got with an electric shaver which seems to have freed things up.

    For the price I can't complain, it's a nice formal looking watch for when the occasion demands one.
    Nice watch!! Can you give us the seller?? Thanks!

    The system won't let me post a link to the site but the seller is called TRICOLOR and operates on a Chinese express selling site named after a famous boxing champion whose first name is Muhammad.

    Very nice. I'm not familiar enough with all the watches that IWC, Panerai, etc. make and I'm wanting something unique to Parnis. By completely original do you mean that it's not a homage of any other brand? I have a Parnis power reserve on the way, I'm thinking its a homage though.

    Bought this based on a fairly recent post here. Arrived today and I'm really impressed with the quality.

    Hello! I'm sorry I haven't seen your comment before. I'm new to the site, and I have not figured out how to see when people reply to my posts. No issues with the watch, so fare. It's keepin OK time, winds up fast on the wrist and lasts as long as the power meter says, it seems. I bought mine from an ebay seller called "wenping1970". There is a thread in the forums about recommended ones, which I didn't see until I had ordered it.

    I replied to your old post, and the reply took me here - where I see you have already bought it... I'm not very good at this...hehe.

    Congratulations on the watch, though! Mine is still ticking away perfectly, and I have no complaints. Besides my Helberg CH8, this is the only watch I have that people not interested in watches notice and ask about regularly.
