    Laughing [Splitting Image?]- Am i seeing doubles?

    Well, i hope fellow brudders here could also share what they might have seen else where, where there are "twins" floating around in the market.

    I was browsing the DAVOSA range of chronos, when i stumbled on this...


    Davosa watches Special Series Pares 161.446.56 - Watchluxus

    In certain ways, look like this...


    Watches from UHR - Uhren von UHR - UHR-261

    ok, I hate being seen as the defender of TAG Heuer but the Aquaracer look originates from a 1982 Heuer design (itself admittedly derived from an obvious Submariner wannabe although it was closer to being a UK MOD (CWC) diver design).

    1982 Heuer 2000


    which was when Omega's Seamaster looked like this:



    Whereas TAG Heuer have stuck with that general look, the Seamaster has only recently gone back to the older 1968 Seamaster 300M look.
    Without going into the usual arguments over who invented what, I'll just remind people a diving bezel and triangle marker at 12 aren't trademarked design features.
    Also, that Ball is actually closer to an Explorer than an Aqua Terra. The polished bezel is closer in scale to the Explorer and in a 3/4 or side view, it is more evident.
