I ordered a C5 on the 7th. Hopefully I'll be seeing it soon, in retrospect I think I should have ordered a Stowa.

I don't have a Stowa, but I have a CW C5 and it's been a great watch so far. Also, it's very easy to talk to customer service at CW, which is an added benefit. Great company.

Here is a watch I had built to my specs by a watch maker out of Japan. He is the ghost of watch making in that he is a legend in cyberworld, and hard to get in contact with and get a response. It took me 5 months, and several emails to get him to respond and to build this watch. While many will say it's a clone or fake, it is not. I am not passing it off as a PAM. In fact, I only became aware of the Paneria brand about a few weeks ago. All parts are geniune parts.

DSN PVD 44MM Unitas 6497 Manual wind (Only 1 Months Old)

Case: Marina Militare Panny Style
Movement: Unitas 6497 . Manual wind 17 jeweled movement beating at 18,000 vibrations per hour
Dial: Black, STERILE, Sandwich Style
Dome: sapphire crystal with anti reflective coating
Sub-dial: small second display next to 9 o'clock hand
Caseback: RXW solid case back and 1 clear case back
Hands: C3 luminous (also hands of sub-dial)
Marks: Yellow luminous numbers on sandwich dial
Watchcase & Bezel: PVD stainless steel
PVD crown guard
26mm Lugs/ or 24mm Lugs
Signed "GPF" buckle
superlumed dial
3 ATM WR tested
2 leather straps (Black, Brown)
1 Screw driver to change bands

Ken the prince of fakos is now the "ghost of watchmaking" ?

the Richemont lawyers didn't seem to have too many problems finding the guy and winning their lawsuit against him

Heard, you may not be passing it off as a Panerai, but I doubt if the maker shares your opinion.

A few week ago is when you decided to copy their design? Please ...

Interesting GMT.
What's the history behind it?
I don't think I've ever seen that bezel on a plain dial GMT.
