How on earth do you figure an alpinist is a Submariner homage? i mean, granted, they both have hands and a date window and go on the wrist, but the case shape, bezel, dial, numerals, indicies, date window, strap, all of it is different.

Mr. Zhang, Thank you for posting these watches...

China has been making watches for over 60 yrs (twice longer than Swatch), 'no respect' are from some/most western watch nuts...inside most of all those Swiss made watch at least 50% of their parts are made in China...

100% China
my Naviforce


75% China 25% Japan, Made in China
my Casio Diver...

man, put in sapphire crystal, ceremic bezel, cut to 42mm, and the fish logo on top under 12 o'clock, you can sell them 2.5 time of today's price...

let's see some wristwatch,
my work horse seiko (100% made in Japan)

the chrono second hand was knock out of whack a few years back (can't return to 12), luckily i watch a video from 'long island watch' uTube, and set the hand back to 12, now it feels like i have a new watch again...

continue reporting;

some watch elitist, do not amen to American watches, timex, invicta, stuhrling, shinola...(did you hear about the very first automatic watch from Shinola, 'Lake Erie', priced at $2.2K? it's made in Detroit from foreign; mostly China, parts)..

I think Stuhrling watches is very interesting, i was impressed by their bold design, i don't think it's a homage watch...
my stuhrling, American designed...i think

oops, watch is upside down...

This, on the other hand, IS my watch. Or rather my father's watch. It's 91 years old, and very radioactive!

this' been w me for almost...24...hours...my 4th Sub homages, to get a feel of the real one before you know, spending US$10.5K (green dial, Taipei price) for the 'real' one


42mm Sinobi, China made

if i want to get real close to Rolex, Steinhart (Germany), Marc & Sons (Germany) should be my next buy...
Phoibos 007's quality is matching that of both Steinhart and Marc & Sons w 1/2 the price...so Phoibos next!

some wristwatch, let's see...

Mr. Biden is wearing a Speedmaster, famous by being the very first watch on the moon, u know, apollo 11, Buzz Aldrin, July of 1969...
$3,295, American Amazon, not too bad

with my 4 'near' Sub...well, one is a near gmt...i'm really glad i got the one from Hyakuichi (left 2nd), a Kyoto, Japan watch Company,
Parnis is the best in the group, w sapphire crystal, ceramic bezel and an automatic movement...

I really like speedmaster pro’s aka moonwatch. A nice handwound movement in an iconic case all for the price of a decent leica!
