    Achilles, to answer your Parnis movement question (from the shoe thread) here: I don't really know how to now tell if a Parnis has a Seagull movement or not. It seems to depend a lot on the model and the season, since Parnis sources a bunch of different movements and those sources seem to always be shifting. I tried Google, but that wasn't much help. The best suggestion I can make is that you contact the various sellers and ask them to tell you which specific the particular Parnis you are interested in has, at that time. Hope that helps!


    Found a japanese forum talking about this watch:

    http://www.parniswatch.net/index.php...5&productname=

    The link to the review is in the review of the watch. I would post the link but my interwebs is slow right now. It's in chinese, but from what I garnered from auto-translate it is seagull movement [​IMG]

    That model is my favorite Parnis.

    Yes, it does seem that model has (or at least had) a Sea-gull movement:
    Sea-gull ST-2555
    ‧ Movement Diameter: 30.4mm
    ‧ Movement Thickness: 7.4mm
    ‧ Frequency: 21600 VPH
    ‧ Second: Sweep/Sub, date
    ‧ Incabloc Shock-resistant balance
    ‧ Uni -directional automatic winding
    ‧ Hackable
    ‧ Run-time reserve: 42 hrs.



    Review in Chinese. I can't read it, but it has lots of good photos.

    I have that Orient, also on a black croc strap. Great watch for the ~$70 I paid for it.

    Didn't see this one posted. I own the same model, but with black face and silver hands. Bloody lovely watches. No idea how many are left, but they only do runs of 500. Xezo Tribune Tribune 2121 SB [​IMG]

    I'll get the Parnis for much cheaper. I like the look of their watches in this thread.

    ML are underrated. That is a nice reserve de marche. Can't find it on their website though - is it a current model?

    I found them on Ebay. I don't think it's current model.
