    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!

    That Kingston is great looking. Mind me asking where you got that leather strap from?

    Here is my recently arrived Steinhart. Now I know what all the fuss was about.

    Re: Best Submariner Homage (Part 2)

    Jealous of everyone's Steinharts! lol
    Are there any 'cheap' homages that resemble the classic 5512/5513/5517 milsub? After seeing a very decisive photo of a wristshot involving both the classic and the 'beefier' new milsub, my mind is made up! I'm fine with just the case as well.
    The only qualm I have with the Croton is that the case isn't exactly 'sub-like'. I guess it's a true homage, though!

    Re: Best Submariner Homage (Part 2)

    found a reasonably priced sub homage on sizzlin' watches. they go for $115 and free US shipping. reasonable price for a sterile sub homage i figure. the crystal's sapphire, ceramic bezel, i've seen the watch in person and the cyclops is as good as any you'd find. but its a seagull movement (honestly not that bad), and the lume is really weak. plus its only 5 atm (not guaranteed), meaning its not really useful as a pure diving watch.

    if you can look past the flaws, $115 isn't that much to spend for a beater sterile sub homage, i figure? do let me know your thoughts, i'm considering this over the helenarou for my first homage, even though helenarou has the ETA inside.

    ps. : there's even a pvd version!

    I wanted to get a watch MOD-ed for my son Jordan for Christmas. As some of you know he's in Afghanistan on his third tour at the moment & wont be back till end of January. And as he is also a mental James Bond fan I thought.................MILSUB.
    So I hit ebay & brought this SKX031. I thought it was just the job because it was already a bit Submariner-ish to start with. There were plenty of MOD-ing parts about. Plus, the Arabic day wheel would be pretty cool on a watch destined to be posted to the Middle East.

    To say I'm happy with it is the understatment of the year! I love it, and more to the point I know Jordan will love it too!
    As you read this the Seiko-Sub is winging it's way to Afghanistan to hopefull get there in time for Christmas. Have enclosed instructions for my lad to take a few photos of him with it on. So will post them when they get to me.
    Hope this has been of interest.................
