    Two other performance brands that come to mind are Marcello C and Steinhart. Possibly also Momentum.

    It was my understanding that Grovana = Steinhart = Debaufre.

    I was also checking out the Daniel Mink divers, but they look so close to Invictas it wouldn't surprise me if they were made by the same manufacturers - at least the bracelets anyway - the bracelet is virtually identical to the bracelet on my Invicta.
    This is just a tribute.

    You are correct when it comes to the Ocean 1 model. Though, from what I understand Steinhart and Debaufre are no longer connected, and there are some new Sub-style models coming to the Steinhart lineup.

    Orange Watch Companies MilSub-5517 (and soon to be launched 9411 Tudor Snowflake homage) are a real deal when it comes to being divers watches. I know I'm taking my 5517 down to depths. Those are real deal and not just made to look like they could perform. And Dan has put plenty of work into getting the right lume on dials too to be visible and readable in darkness of depths. (Which is/was one of the big reasons it got delayed so much).

    Isn't there any homage with a date magnifier that's atleast close to the real deal? It's the one thing that annoys me the most about my 8926 (and the polished links on the bracelet)

    wosk:

    In my opinion the magnifier on the Debaufre Ocean 1 is certainly adequate as compared to the Orient 2ER and Invicta 8926, tho I have not compared it directly with a Rolex magnifier.

    I would also add that the most powerful magnifier I have yet handled was on a Marathon SAR...

    The best date cyclop on a Submariner homage that I've come across is the Voow Submariner. Check it out on ebay. The price is very reasonable and the quality is exceptional. The cyclop is perfectly placed and the date font is simply amazing. You won't be disappointed.

    The Invicta 8926 is hard to beat for the homageness and the low price. The 21 jewel Myota is pretty decent too. You can get it with an Omega or coin edge bezel.
