Can't post pictures due to no camera, but can tell you I have a legal clone of a Panerai Marina Militare made by Parnis. Stainless case, black dial and aftermarket black leather band, looks very noir. Exhibition case back, too. Got it for USD$80.00 on eBay. Had to replace the original band, though - that plastic crap was totally unworthy. Cost for the watch plus replacement band was USD$150.00 altogether. The watch's movement is a Tianjin ST36 6497 17 jewel mechanical hand-winding movement.
