I like the look of this. Sort of wish the blues were a bit darker but I love my LP and would buy another.

It does look nice. I kind of wish it was a little cleaner looking though.

I'm looking pretty hard at this one right now

Come on, man. You cannot do that. Curious minds want to know!

Yeah it would be nicer if it didn't have the blue hour markers but it still has a nice look.
I've been eyeing a few Parnis watches myself but will have to wait a while before I can actually pull the trigger...a true poor man here

That Parnis is nice. I like it more than the LP that I posted, but am worried the 43mm Parnis would be too big for my girly wrists. The LP is 40mm. I think the Orvis I have (pic posted a few pages back is a 41mm) and I don't think anything bigger would look OK on me. Besides, that Parnis website with the gmail account looks like something my 4yr old could have built. Sketchy.

Parnis has some good looking watches. I've the one shown here and and I'm very impressed with its accuracy. It flew off my hand once and landed on the hardwood floor, without a problem. The 43mm is big, but it's not as big as you'd think. I've relatively smaller wrists too, but it looks quite fine. Just work out and make sure you've arms that make it look good.

You were my inspiration to get a Parnis so the credit goes to you

I too wish that instead of numbers there were dashes (not sure what to call them)

I feel like if Parnis were to make a copy of the Seiko Blue Spark they would clean house! There seems to be quite a few people looking for the Blue Spark.

I think this person has a warped vision of poverty.

I found a cheap copy that doesn't look near as nice, but semi close. Not quite to my liking though.

This thread is quickly becoming a cheap blue hand watch porn thread

You can search for Seagull 1963 on eBay and elsewhere. I believe the HK Seagull website also had a few available, but that site doesn't seem to be around anymore.

This probably fits the title of this thread best. Timex Chrono I picked up on clearance over the weekend, $29.99.
