I'm a sucker for NEW micro brands... and in a sea of microbrands this brand has proven to me that it will be a contender. I'll be straight up front... this NOT a Parnis. I would rank this piece as similar in quality to a Deep Blue or Davosa, but Deep blue has yet to make a sub homage in the 40mm size.

Phoibos got this particular model right. It is gorgeous in person. The quality for the money is second to none... really nicer than many of my 500 dollar watches. With a solid thick-linked "tapering" bracelet (20mm-18mm), solid end links, a super-tight ceramic bezel (zero play BTW) and sapphire all powered by the Miyota 9015, this is dollar for dollar one of the best value auto micros I've owned. If you look at their 300m Quartz line, you will see models identical to the Steinhart Ocean series. Also, their Ocean Master series sure resembles the Deep Blue. Why? Can you say "white label" (wink)?

Ships with BOTH inner and outer boxes, additional links, warranty card and papers.

Asking $195 Paypaled and shipped in the 48CUS.
