    Parnis without logo / brand name, Generic Pilot or 'hommage'?

    Hi Guys,

    I'm sure the most of you are aware of 'Parnis', being a somewhat dubious container 'brand' for watches coming from south-east Asia.
    Most of the Parnis watches are either 'hommage' or straight copies. They however also offer a 'generic' collection, that seems more in the style of pilots, instead of 1-1 copies..

    Now I've spotted this watch on a website: Parnis watch

    I was wondering: do you guys see any over-familiarity with an existing watch? Maybe a perticular IWC that I am not aware off?
    I'm OK with it being a generic watch in the 'Pilot' style, but don't want to buy a copy / knock-off IWC..

    Appreciate your expertise!

    Regards,

    Do a search for Pilot <Flieger> Unitas 6498 and you will see other knock offs. From a historical point of view Parnis has no military history, just jumping on the bandwaggon and producing Flieger inspired watches.
    Kind regards
