Since I'm a sucker for Explorer 1 homages...

These don't seem too bad, perhaps slightly over-priced...at the half price down, would be a steal

I like it, congrats. I also like the Explorer line, particularly the 40mm Explorer II.

Nice looking piece. Too bad I'm on a tight watch budget these days so I'd have to go with Alpha. Owned their Explorer 1 homage back in 2014-2015 for about $100. Had no problems with it, but flipped it.

So far, this is the best homage I have found.....owned the Alpha, and although it is more size accurate to the original, the Bliger is much more solid
