    Rolex President homage?

    I recently came across the Orient President and it looks like a great homage to the Rolex President. The only thing I'm not crazy about is the markers, not a fan of the fake stones. Anyone know of any other worthy homage models?

    I already have the Seiko SG204 in case someone suggests that.

    Buy something that's original on its own merit.

    Orient used to make them without the 'stones', but might be hard to find. Keep checking eBay for that or the similar Bulova. There was a similar query recently:

    Look for a Titoni "Cosmo King" if you're into it...they were very common in the 70's and are all available new (NOS) in Hong Kong believe it or not.

    I would go with something like this since it's not an exact copy.

    There is a Mido "president" as well (with and without stones on the dial) , the problem is it seems very hard to find one.

    Yes, Mido Commander had full day and date models with finely finished dials in several colors. Very hard to find but new old stock models do show on Ebay every once in a while.

    The Hamilton Khaki King has the same functionality with a similar, but unique style.
