Parnis Marina Militare

Post by koimaster » September 30th 2021, 6:44pm

The Border Between Homage & Fake



A homage, by virtue of its very nature, always has to balance how much they copy from their inspiration and how much of their own DNA they want to put into their product. It is difficult to generalize homages because the term covers such a wide array of watches.

On one side, you have a reputable brand like Steinhart who mix and match different elements of their inspiration and put their own touches on it. On the other, you have the likes of Invicta who merely copy not out of passion, but rather because they try to siphon off some money from the watch market leaning on current trends.

The truth is that Parnis does not care about you, about the original manufactures, or about the watch community. Nobody needs a mechanical watch nowadays and this is not a case of making a tool affordable for the public. This is day-light robbery. I do not know if you ever had the experience of something being stolen from you, but if you do then ask yourself whether you would want to buy from a thief. If so go right ahead and buy yourself a Parnis and hope you will not get scammed or your package seized by authorities for them rightfully thinking that you bought a fake.
Hehehehe

That's 24k, right there!

Conjurner has a parnis. At least he talks about his all the time.

A pretty damning condemnation of Parnis watches.

I've actually handled a few. Surprisingly satisfying.
Penises? Not that there is anything wrong with that.

I guess the folks that buy knock-offs, which is what these are, less the name, hang out in circles where no one knows the difference and think it's just a cool looking watch, none the wiser.

Cool TRG stuck it to them.

I got this San Martin because it is 40mm and has the vintage looking case and lugs.

This is the prototype, the only one anywhere, that got me into this case and dial. This doesn’t have an onion crown, but I like it on the San Martin, so it will stay.

The dial is raised not sandwich, so I should have decent luck having one made. Right now the only dials like this are for 45 and 47mm watches.

I can’t wear the large ones that were made, so I am going to try to get the dial I want in a case that will fit. The dial will be a sterile dial of course, I don’t want it to say Panerai and try to fake people out. I’m going to do it because I like it and can’t find one already made. I’m not going to beat up the case or dial to make it look vintage, I just want a nice sterile dial and I want the case to stay nice.

Yep. Everyody I know couldn't care less about somebody wearing a fake/homage/knock-off/whatever.
