    Maybe I don't get it, but why are homages so popular? I tried one recently because I really like the style of the sub, but I kept feeling like I was wearing something that pretended to be something it wasn't. I'm not trying to be negative, I guess it didn't work for me. I see they are very popular around the forum with many styles, Panerai and Blancpain as well.

    It's all a matter of perspective, I suppose. People generally range from loving homages, liking homages, tolerating homages, or hating homages.

    No shame in any view. If don't like them, that just frees you up to search for your perfect watch without being distracted by a whole host of homages.

    Homage watches democratize history for the common wrist.

    It's true. I used to feel pretty "Meh" about them. But I have to admit to loving my Squale. In a dream world, I would own a Tudor Black Bay, but that is very far off if its ever going to happen.

    Shut your mouth and wear your *Alpinist.
    *"Your Alpinist" is metaphorical and in truth refers to your most versatile watch.

    I go backwards and forwards on them and have decided if a watch makes me happy then it's all good.
    Expensive as it is the Black Bay is just another homage really. Albeit one with a better pedigree than most.

    Maybe, but it has the proper name on the dial.

    Until now Tudor didn't make homages, they made Submariners. I see the Black Bay as Tudor's tribute to their own rich history of Subs.

    Personally, I wish Rolex would do the same thing.

    Agreed. I'd like to see a resurgence of sword hand Rolex Subs.

    Heck, I'd like to see Rolex do a Submariner without crown guards again. That's the reason why I've been looking at a Raven 40mm Vintage or a MK II Kingston

    Pulled the trigger on an 8926 today. I've owned a few sub homages in my time, including the Alpha Sub and Mil sub and a Raven Vintage.
    Very much looking forward to having one again.
