    Re: Post up your Parnis!

    I was feeling pretty good about my Parnis diver, until I opened it up the other day to regulate it. The following photos point up the problem. Is it just a fake Etachron regulator, or is it a fake ETA movement?Pardon the yellow lighting. It's bright flouresent lighting, taken without a flash.

    Well, it certainly is not an ETA movement.
    The etachron micro adjust is also definitely fake, even for a fake movement.

    You can still regulate the movement but it will be more difficult because you will have to move the regulator bar back and for in infinitesimally small increments to get the timing you want.
    Just in case you aren't sure which lever is the regulator; it's the one pointing to 9 o'clock in your picture. Teh one pointing t 7 0'clock is the stud carrier bar and should not be touched.

    Yes, I know. I just find the blatant deception troubling.

    I'm guessing the quartz models will always be more trouble free than the mechanicals given that most of them have Japanese movements in them

    That one looks good too

    yes
    the forum mind says there is miyota 0s00 inside so it seems to be reliable
    and the build quality is rather good not to say great :)

    how smooth is the sweep on this piece, Ed? I just bought one and it said it had a "seagull movement asian 2836 clone" so i'm hoping it's 28,000 oscillations, not 21,600. Thanks!

    Different sellers offer different movements at different price points. At $110-130, it's a 21,600 movement. At around $180+ you'll find 28,000 variations.

    Interesting. I'll post up mine when it gets here next week or so, I might even do a review.
