I have been looking at one of these for a while. Recently I bought an MWC GMT from eBay because it was being offered at half price from a private buyer. The watch was new and in perfect condition, however, even at half price I considered it overpriced. Rubbish bezel, mineral crystal, and a really cheap nato strap. Anyway, I re-sold it for the same price I paid. I already own a few Parnis watches and know what great value they are. Of course, watch snobs absolutely hate them, (A) because they are homage watches, and (B) they are simply far to much watch for the buck. This one has a Seagull movement, sapphire crystal, ceramic bezel, 316L stainless case, screw in crown, GMT hand, and an excellent jubilee bracelet with solid end links and a milled clasp. Because of the present world's issues, I paid the extra and have bought it from a UK supplier. Still only £80 though. Parnis will not guarantee the water resistance of these watches, but I have tested other models, and they are fine. Even though purchased from the UK, when it arrives is anyone's guess

You've got to love this one Mrs. Wiggles, or will when it arrives ! :)
Just the ceramic bezel should cost $80 you would think. Right?!
It seems like this one ticks all the boxes for one amazing price
that's for sure ! 👀

However long it takes to get to you. It will be worth the wait. BIG
congrats ahead of time here !!!

Looking forward to seeing it down the road, but until then I hope
it gets a bunch of wrist time. Still stunned by how fast it got to you. 😀

Enjoy !

Aagh, your from the USA. We don't get to many things right in the UK, but the postage system is pretty good. If something is posted first class A.M almost anywhere in the country, you normally get it the following day. Second class, it takes an extra day

on right now in the world. Terrific stuff sir, and well done to you guys

of normalcy right?!
