    The more I see the 1963 chrono, the more I think I want to add one to my collection. I need something to hold me over until my next Rolex.

    that looks very nice and clean. your wrist isn't exactly thin, i'm only afraid that the parnis will look too huge on my wrist.

    I love the look of the watch but mine broke. New it would sometimes just stop. Now the number 6 has fallen off and is rattling around loos in there. It is a shame because it is such a great looking watch. I wish someone would make a homage of this watch. Something that actually was more expensive than the original.

    thinking about picking up this watch, rather than the weekender or the easy reader.

    Still haven't got used to how tall the Parnis is. Hasn't fit under any of the cuffs I've worn it with. Love the look of it though, and can't wait to replace the strap with a brown leather band. :slayer:

    Just joined this forum but I'm a huge WIS. I searched for a watch pr0n thread but it seems like this is the only watch thread? Anyway, here are my two favorite watches.

    Rolex Explorer II (3186 movement)

    1952 Omega Seamaster (354 bumper movement) on DiModell lizard.

    With watches like that, you'd do better in the watch p0rn thread.

    Ah, excellent! I don't know why that didn't come up on my search. Thank you!

    I'm in the market for something round with a brown leather strap.
    Simple face, maybe the date but not bothered about second or divisions dial.
    Have seen one in the AG Spalding & Bros line[​IMG]

    This retails locally for 190euro

    Can anyone recommend something similar. Maybe up to $250/£200.

    It took a while, but my Parnis finally came...I quickly replaced the included strap with this leather NATO from a Hong Kong ebayer...the face looks cream, but it's actually whiter than it seems.

    Looks nice. How's the quality? I'm weary of buying a Parnis because of their cost. Is it manual wind? automatic? quartz?
