    Which wiki would that be?

    There is no Parnis listed under brands in the wiki for Chinese Mechanical watches

    Re: Post up your Parnis!

    Received my 43mm Parnis Ceramic Bezel Black Dial Automatic Watch from Man bush i jie today. Pretty impressed over all. Ceramic bezel is lovely, dial, hands, crystal, all excellent, given the price. I'll forgive the crappy finishing work between the lugs, but maybe I should have ordered it with a leather strap. I bought the SS bracelet model, even though I intended to use an aftermarket leather in its place. After a bit of polishing with a dremel it looks better. Only other quibble is sloppy positioning of the bezel rotation. Lots of lateral play. For $118 delivered, I am very pleased.

    Unfortunately, like a lot of stuff on that site; this too is erroneous.

    In order for a brand to be legitimate; it has to be registered by the company that produces it. There is no company that has registered the bran and actually produces the watches.
    There is a fellow in China who registered the name but is not a company and does not produce watches. There is a fellow in the USA who has registerd the URL for parnis.com but he has nothing to do with watches.

    As the wikipedia article says, there are several companies selling these watches which are made in different factories. None of those factories is a Parnis factory, and none of those businesses are Parnis companies.

    Any whatch that is unmarked anywhere on it with a legitimate brand or trademark is simply a vanilla watch that is ready to have markings added; whether they infringe on copyrights, trademarks and logos or not. Before the likes of the Parnis phenomenon or the burgeoning mushroom market, all these watches were destined for the forgery/fake/replica market.
    The makers have simply found it more profitable to put labels like Parnis or any other made up names on them. Why try and peddle a fake Panerai for $30 when you can get $90 for the same watch with Parnis printed on it...

    There is simply no way around it...until a legitimate, duly registered and trademarked company starts making watches under it's legal name; these are just long enduring mushrooms with no real pedigree.

    Re: Post up your Parnis!

    The above argument is pointless boys and girls. Parnis is an off "brand" made in China. What else needs to be said?

    This thread is about posting up pics.

    Sorry but it is not a brand of any kind no matter where it is made.

    Off brands are legitimate registered brands of more recognized brands such as Seiko/Pulsar; Bulova/Caravelle; Sea-Gull/Lanhua. All duly registered brands.
    Parnis is not part of any recognized brand.
