What mvmt?

6020 6000 T on the dial 6020 6000 R2 on the case - the glass on mine is appalling - I smashed the crystal, hawked it around until someone said they could fit it with a plain glass, but, when I picked it up, the inclusions in the glass were dire - I just paid the 60 quid to get it back off them lol - at some point I'll get it re-glazed properly, but know not where.

My parents bought mine from a jeweller in Brighton -, Summer 1981 I think it would have been, I turned 18 the following Spring - there was a chap in there having the bad news broken to him about his 'genuine' Rolex ...

No, a nice retired watch maker in Italy, but he was so nice, I don't mind giving him some promotion.  It took a few days to sort out how to pay (he doesn't have paypal).  And you can imagine I was quite determined!  I only bought the one watch (as you can see 'SOLD!'  lol, not the bunch.

 

that website is like Italian gum tree - just happenstance.

He has some other vintage Seiko Quartz too - must have been collecting dust at the back of the shop.  The Seiko Connaisseur is so slim, a) the first person to change my battery couldn't get the back off because b) it is fixed in some way to be part of the battery circuit (no room for a spring)  and c) ever since the second or third battery, the watch has had a tendency to stop when not on my wrist, presumably because of either a gap developing between the case and the battery as it cools, or a blob of gum that one chap insisted was needed to keep the cell in place!  The one just arrived from Italy is fine, I guess you just need to take it somewhere that will charge you £100.00 for their expertise.  My batteries last a long time though ...

Each of the places I took that Connaisseur, even though the crystal was smashed and with some scratching on the dial, the jewellers / watchmakers commented what a nice watch it was - no complications, just a quiet boss!

What are your thoughts kind Sir?

I've a three Parnis watches, two autos and the above Daytona homage and think they are great value for money. The ones i have all seem to have well finished casing, dials look good, bracelets and straps are good quality too. No reliability issues so far, very pleased with them.:)
