Parnis called it the Florence instead of Panerai's Firenze. Maybe language doesn't matter. It's darn close to the original, almost too close, in look and name.

Great builds, and now that you posted the picture, I realized that I read your build thread over on the old HF. Congratulations, what a great job. I am starting out pretty much the same way, but I'm already planning two, as you so aptly named them, pamhoms.
Thanks Rotorua. I like the Parnis stuff. It is fun to build and comfortable to wear. Since I have no intention of building a historically accurate watch, the P*rnis/cartel parts do me fine.

Here is my new favourite:
Parnis Florence rose gold case w/ blackened engravings. It's a really close copy of the Panerai Firenze. I bought the r/g because I don't believe Panerai Ctually makes one.
Asian 6497
Asian r/g hands(for 47mm)
River T/O dial relumed by Mykeos (I saw another T/O dial on th e bay and I kinda wish I got it too. Love the HF logo. )

This is my first 47mm Parnis and I'm loving the size and wearability. It's temporarily on a Vesire strap, but it's not quite the look I want. I have a black 26mm on the way, though I could be tempted by a nice tan with black stitch. This strap is being saved for another project.

What I don't like... this one will fight with my Portuguese homage for wrist time.

Don't have anything to measure with at the moment.
The case came in 3 pieces. Dropped the dial+movement in from the top before pressing bezel/crystal in place. (screwed from bottom)Image

I guess people keep asking because in the pictures on the bay it‘s having a sterile caseback vs. yours having an engraved one.
Might be interested too, but actually only if I can score an engraved caseback along the route..

I have a case back for this, but it says Angelus, I assume that would be false advertising with a Swiss 649X in there ....

Thanks Mac, i just wanted to know if the CB is a little thinner than the thick 3646 caseback, but thicker than those black seal radiomirs.


Vonn, maybe we'll do a swap when i find an engraved one. i prefer it sterile.

Thanks for the link!
Its funny, when using the German bay, even if put your settings on worldwide, you won‘t find a single engraved one like you did.
There are tons of sterile one though.

What I do when I need to find "funny" stuff is using the eBay.com site
