watches are meant to tell times..
It's been working great for me and been keeping time within COSC spec.
An outstanding beater Sub homage may be had in the Timex T29781. It sports the handy Indiglo backlight, and is very well put together. Snap-on caseback. 60-click bezel. Quartz accuracy. Only drawback on this one is the 50m water resistance. I've submerged it without incident, but for some reason 100m would give me more comfort.
Best of all, these Timex subs can be had for under $50!
My pride and joy when it comes to Sub homages is my Debaufre Ocean 1. This is a Swiss Made automatic watch. As far as I'm concerned, they thought of everything on this one, and it will be with me for years to come.
316L stainless steel case
Swiss ETA 2824-2 Automatic movement with 25 jewels
Screw-down crown and case-back (both signed)

AR coated sapphire crystal
300m = 1000 ft. water resistant
Unidirectional rotating bezel
Stainless Steel Oyster bracelet with screwed links
Solid end links
Stainless steel clasp with signed foldover safety
Weight: 6.8 oz
Price is a bit more for an Ocean 1 than for some of the others discussed so far. Retail as of this posting is $465.00. Debaufre has been known to offer these on a scratch and dent sale from time to time. That's how I was able to pick up mine for much nearer $300.
I'll post the MkII Kingston once that's completed!
Tiger Shark used to make one, can't see it on their site anymore.

Forgot to post the "sub style" O&W Cobra:
There are also the O&W "M" Series watches, which are much more of a sub style.
Does anyone have any experience with the St. Moritz/Momentum Aquamatic II?
I'm pretty sure it has an ETA 2824 Swiss automatic movement. Mineral crystal. Unidirectional bezel. Push-button clasp.
I'd love to hear from an owner of one of these...
Here's a question for the masses: which sub-homage has the best bracelet? I would guess the Debaufre but what about some of the others?
