Top 5 Watches & Their Homage Alternatives

Post by JAS1125 » Sat Apr 06, 2019 5:33 am

Homage watches transparently pay tribute to some of the most iconic and influential watches throughout history by including recognizable detailing to new pieces. I’ve intentionally used the word ‘transparently’ here, as this is what separates the fakes or replicas from the homage watches; they maintain their own brand identity whilst incorporating design cues from others.

A homage watch is for the people who are in the market for a new watch, have stumbled across the perfect look, then found out it has a few too many zeroes in the price tag. Or maybe you’re not sure that a particular watch is right for you, so you buy the homage as a trial before you make a big investment.

So here they are, the Top 5 Watches that you’ll be sure to find a suitable homage piece.

I would love someone making an homage Radiomir that has wire lugs and is 42mm or less. I’ve seen on other forums that people look for them too, but no one is making them.
It's easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled.

JAS1125: Interesting article

Back in 2007 I painted my own house and with the money I saved decided to buy the real deal a two tone black dial submariner...over $7 Gs at that time. Due to the recession in 08-09 I had to sell it in 2011. So as they say your not buying a watch, your buying luxury. So now I am happy with the new style Invicta homage 24760 for $86. The markers and hands are solid white which gives it a little different look.

Another interesting Audemars Royal Oak homage was the Swiss Legend Trimix. They quit making this style as Audemars sued them, so I don't know it you could find one.

Would like to see a homage for the Omega moonwatch.
