    Is this watch a homage? If so how much?

    I found this micro brand looking around for a small 38mm chronograph. Thinking of pulling the trigger but not a fan if they stole the design.

    Sinn certainly wasn’t the first, nor the last to do a Chrono. If you like the piece go for it. Definitely not a homage.
    Too many flipped...

    Do a google search for 'Breguet Type 20' and see for yourself. Definitely a homage watch, just not to Sinn.

    If by "homage" you mean "derivative," I'd say 'maybe,' since there are a lot of chrono/diver hybrids out there with throwback styling.

    If you like it, pick it up. Once you put it on, only YOU will be the one who judges it for longer than two seconds.
