    Best Vintage Homages?

    Hi guys!

    I was just wondering what the best place to get high quality vintage homages is, I love so many vintage watches, but dont have the $100K+ most of them cost :P. This is just for future reference, and I probably wont be buying one in the near future, but I want a place to browse. List the best places to find any homages, it doesnt matter which brands. I like Panerai vintages, like the 3646, and Kampfschwimmer, and I know that Dievas make some good ones, but in all honesty I want all brands.

    Point me in the right direction guys!

    Best,
    -Max

    PS- Not looking for the super-duper high end homages, definitely under $1K, hopefully in the $600 area.

    Timefactors in UK, he makes some superb hommages.
    I can not fault my Longines CAF hommage at all.....

    Cost? A little bit more than a replacement strap for JLC costs!

    I would browse the Longines Heritage line. Maybe not the price you are looking for, but gray market dealers and pre-owned samples usually offer nice options. And the homages are based on their own watches. Tudor, Omega, Breitling - to name just a few - seem to go on the same route but with much higher prices.
    Cheers

    The last couple years, Hamilton has released a couple - the 1971 Chronomatic and the Thinomatic.

    I would also put the Breitling Superocean Heritage in this camp.
