    Looking to buy this Parnis Watch.. thoughts on swan neck and sapphire glass?

    Parnis 43mm blue Power Reserve automatic ST 2542 W - Automatic - Parnis Watch Station - Worldwide Free Shipping!

    Is paying extra for either the swan neck or the sapphire glass worth it? Sorry, I'm not even entirely sure what those mean! Thanks!

    A sapphire crystal would be preferable, yes. It basically means that the watch glass will be way more resistant to scratches.

    As for the 'swan neck' - no clue whatsoever what they mean by that option...

    You will find an explanation with pics of the swan neck here: https://forums.watchuseek.com/f71/wha...nt-422047.html

    Personally I would require one on a watch with a glass caseback, it looks very nice even if it is not stricktly necessary.
