    The Parkville - From Melbourne Watch Co

    G'day fellow WUS people.

    I would like to share my latest aquisition with you, The Parkville from Melbourne Watch Co. I bought this as a gift for my dear wife and she absolutely loves it

    It's a 36mm watch that is powered by a Seiko Auto. The presentation box is worthy of mention also.

    I will let the pics do the rest of the talking, so here goes .....

    Getting that for the wife is a great idea. It is small enough and 'sophisticated' as my wife would say. I think my wife would also like this one. She currently has 4-5 $15 dollar watches from fashion stores. Nothing is wrong with those and she likes them. But as a watch enthusiast I am dying for her to find an f71 watch. May never happen, but one can hope! Hope your wife enjoys!

    Really nice pics above!

    I thought it was worth giving the thread a bump, as there's not nearly enough posts about the Parkville.

    Here's a few pics of the rose gold Parkville in the field. In China.

    Possibly the only non-"Rolex" on the bullet train.

    (These Chinese intercity trains are the shiz, by the way).

    I'm not a "big watch" guy, but when I see a watch this size (36mm) on a woman's wrist, I think it signals authority and confidence, far more than those old-style dainty little ones.
