    Also Helenarou has several no-date Sub homages available at various price points. Google Helenarou and click on the 40mm link.

    Re: Best Submariner Homage (Part 2)

    I took a break from WUS for the last 6 months because I wanted to avoid the temptation of getting shiny new timepieces, and so far, it had worked, as I didn't pick up anything new. So last week, I thought, hmm, maybe I should just check in for a little bit and see what's going on in the world of horology.

    Boy was that a big mistake, because I stumbled onto this new sub homage from Squale, and next thing I know, I've ordered one.

    Wrist shot - I think the 40mm size is a better fit for my small wrists.

    I must say that I am very pleased with the Squale. The build quality is excellent and feels very comfortable on my wrist. I dare say that I like it better than my Steinhart OVM. Although the OVM has a better clasp on the bracelet, I think the overall size, build, look and feel, etc. of the Squale puts it over the top for me.

    Don't get me wrong, I still love the OVM, but the Squale edges it just slightly.

    WUS sometimes has that effect. Nice Squale 20 Atmos, ghostryder!

    Oh man, those are beautiful! Unfortunately also out of my price range at the moment.

    I like the "military sub" posted, however the 3, 6, and 9 hour markers are so chunky they throw everything off for me.

    Thank you for the suggestions though! If only there were a cheaper alternative to the Helenarou...

    Ladies and gentlemen, Squale does it again. This time in rootbeer! Harks back to some early Rolex GMT models. Not everyone's cuppa tea, but great to have rootbeer back in play!

    Apparently Clint Eastwood has worn a Root Beer GMT Master. http://wornandwound.com/2012/09/10/w...ot-beer-rolex/
