    Looking affordable watch which looks like Bell & Ross 126 or Steinhart Nav B Chrono II

    Hi everyone,

    I'm new to this forum, I must say that it is time consuming :) but great to see such a valuable source of information.

    I am looking for some affordable watch ( <400USD ) and I really like the style of Bell & Ross and Steinhart below designs.

    Can anyone suggest me some brand/type with similar color and pilot design? Thanks in advance

    Hi Dangeruss,

    Lum-Tec is a good alternative however the square like shape is not my type. (I prefer round shaped watches).

    As with the Bell & Ross instrument line, I suspect that any homages will only detract from the aesthetics. The Bell & Ross has a very minimalist dial (to the extent I would say it's not a 'Pilot' watch at all).

    thanks ffeelliixx, Sottomarino has limited leather straps with brown colors :(

    maybe I should give up searching and consider Parnis with very low expectations

    So I guess you didn't really look at the Lum Tec then?

    You can always change the strap.

    My experience with Parnis has been very positive. If you've found a Parnis model you like, I would go for it.
