For Parnis and Chinese junk in general...
Yup, it's official. Every single Chinese built watch I own now has a major flaw or issue with the movement. Most are with the date wheel no longer turning, some are with the spacers not being properly fitted and others with the movement not engaging after setting time and winding without a hard whack to the case.
I still love my watches, but really wish they were Seiko or citizen type quality. Heck even Casio quality for that matter!! Lol
There I admitted it. I still don't see value in the high-end brands, but I no longer see any equality between them either. Shizst is shizst.
