        I wouldn't bother as I find AE to be a major PITA, but I have a friend who has bought a couple of Pagani's and he really rates them

            My overall impression is that they are all well made and that you you get a lot of watch for the money. All of these watches are made of 316L stainless steel, have sapphire crystal and feel like nice watches. The Parnis Daytona homage has a Seiko mecha-quartz hybrid movement (VK64); the Datejust and 6105 homages have a Seiko NH35 / 4R35 movement (hacking, hand winding and strong power reserve) and the Batman I can't recall off the top of my head.

            It all depends how you feel about homage watches. There isn't a lot of design originality going on but you do get to try these designs out before forking out multiple thousands dollars.

            The most interesting watch to me - and the one that I wear the most - is the Parnis Daytona homage. In my view, Parnis have actually improved the design of the Rolex. They have only one line of text under the brand name (rather than the 4 lines on the Rolex) and have dropped the iconic red DAYTONA lettering across the top of the bottom sub-dial. They have also removed the applied indices at the 3 and 9 o'clock positions. The overall effect of this is to clean up the busy dial of the Rolex and give the dial a bit more space. Finally, the sub dials on the Parnis all line up correctly - whereas the Rolex sub-dials are famously slightly asymmetrical / off center (due to the automatic movement that is used). All of that makes it an interesting watch for me.

            The 6105 homage is made by Rdunae and has a superb finish. It's a reissue that I would love Seiko to have done - except they would have charged US$3000 and got the alignment of chapter ring wrong!
