    I thought these are quartz, but they even have a NH35 movement! Seriously considering the 1970 compressor!

    Yeah, that compressor has me drooling. If I can convince myself that it won't wear too big, I might have no choice but to try and nab one.

    I'm really digging the 1970 compressor....

    However I think that at 44mm the case is just way too big. And I'm concerned about quality because just $250 seems too good to be true!

    Where did you find that RL pic? I cant seem too find any...


    It's a good looking piece and it got me interested.

    It actually is a Breitling AVI 765 (later called CP = co pilot) homage and not a Heuer (autavia) inspired watch. The two do have a lot of similarities though.

    I think i'll bite and order one. Leaning towards the steel bezel 1963. Will report back when i got it here...

    Contacted him, and he mentioned he had a soft opening several days ago. He said it was an old idea that finally came to life. I'm trying to see if he has more real life photos that I can share here.

    I think the designs looks great, but 44mm us a tad large for me. Especially with 24mm lugs.

    Price and specs look great!

    Most of what's on his site are product photos, not renders. e.g.,

    Re: Dan Henry 1963, Heuer homage

    I went ahead and ordered the steel bezel chrono. Too interesting a design to not try for that price. I do hope that "vintage" lume is a little more subdued in real life.

    I actually never buy quartz watches and never seemed to have bonded with a quartz watch though, so it might be a catch and release. The smooth chrono seconds makes up for something at least...

    Should take about a week to arrive. Will report back with pictures

    Looks like a homage done right. Inexpensive, looks nice and isn't a 100% copy of any existing watch. For $230 it comes with an engraved caseback, mecaquartz movement, an extra strap and a watch roll. Sounds like a deal to me.

    However I'm too cheap to buy this so I'll this for the next guy :)
