    Interesting, now if they come out with a LV homage, my wallet will be another $400 lighter. Looks they they improved the bracelet and clasp on this one too.

    Re: Best Submariner Homage (Part 2)

    I initially wanted to assemble a homage using a case and an ETA 2824, but it proved to be out of my budget! After some eBay time, I came across a pre-loved Croton two-tone submariner. It was just what I wanted; a battered specimen ready for more rough wear! Apparently the DG2813 that powers this hacks, but mine doesn't. It'll be going in for a service next year anyway so hopefully it will be sorted.
    Here it is on my wrist-

    Re: Best Submariner Homage (Part 2)

    I'm looking to get my first sub homage and am trying to decide between the Helenarou and Ray Wong's military submariner. I like the gilded Helenarou dial, making it my first choice. I would like to wear my new watch with a brown leather band similar to those found Hodinkee and feel the gilded dial would pull it all together.

    But, I am hesitant to pull the trigger because I have small wrists and am afraid the Helenarou (16mm thick) might be too big. Please share your thoughts and help me decide!

    No brainer - helenarou hands down. Much much better quality. It may be a bit thick but that's because of the domed crystal. If you have small wrists the width is of more concern than the height.

    The Helenarou is similar to the Kingston in thickness. My wrists are 6.5", and my Kingston is a perfect fit.

    Re: Best Submariner Homage (Part 2)

    You may ask lol....these are IMO the two best submariners, bang for buck under $1500. The Steinhart is all classic military rolex submariner looks, and the Chr Ward is all sophistication with subtle detailing. I hesitated for a long while on the Chr Ward but its so true what they say....it's way better in the flesh than the online pics. I just put the caiman croc strap on the Steinhart today to bring out the vintage look and feel of the dial...pricey but worth it IMO.
    The Steinhart is more for jeans and smart casual while the Chr. Ward is more suit and tie, though you can make it casual with a NATO. That is why I got both, one for each occasion :)
