    $150, manual wind, like it so far.

    That's a nice looking watch. As the pics loaded, I had been debating whether to comment on how much I disliked "clones", "copies" & outright counterfeits...but after I looked at the pics I saw that no such thing had been attempted. It is, as you said, an homage and/or a stylistic copy of a Panerai, but without any attempt to pass itself off as one.

    You mention that it's a manual wind, but in the center of the back of the watch it says, "Ocean Chronometer, Automatic"...or at least, that's what it appears to me to say. It's not an automatic?

    Tim, I feel the same way about fakes. ;-)

    The manufacturer of these watches was clear that while these were definitely in the Panny style they were not Panerai watches, never attempted to pass them off that way. I asked about the caseback and that was all he had when he assembled my watch. He plans to send me a display back when he gets another shipment.

    There are some Parnis watches (Chinese brand, I saw an old post in the forum) that are in that same style.
    P.S.: Is the dial glass scratched or is it just me ?
