Parnis 21J Power Reserve Automatic..Seagull 2530..First Look "Click" to Login or Register

I was intrigued with the design of this watch and Seagull is a decent movement, so decided to give this a go.

What showed up was a pretty heavy 43MM well built automatic with a well defined dial and beautiful blued screws, hands, and numeral markers. It's also a "Hack" type movement which is a Seagull 21 Jewel 2530 automatic movement. Case is SS with a PP bezel and brushed sides. Display back with mineral glass crystal. Screw in back. Front glass may be Sapphire. Entirely built in China, they are getting a lot better at this!

I won this at an ebay auction for little of nothing, and it was in my mainbox in less than 2 weeks! No more waiting a month on most stuff anymore.

Leather strap seems of good quality and you couldn't ask for a better match. I may buy a few more for resale, after I wear this for a month or so and see how it holds up (especially the crown and stem) but for now it looks and runs fantastic...nice higher end Chinese timepiece.
