    This thread was instrumental in my purchasing a manbush sterile sub homage, my first automatic in years. I'm afraid I may be hooked!

    I received a green bezel Alpha Sub today. Will probably post more thoughts on it either here or in f72 tomorrow but I have to say it's a better watch than I remember the previous black Alpha Sub I had being. Bezel turns very nicely, lume isn't that great but is at least even. Case, dial and hands all have decent finish. I'm really pleased with it. Only real downside is the crappy bracelet but I've take that off and put it on a Watchadoo and it looks great.

    Has anybody got one of those Tigers? I'm gonna hock my trusty Invicta, which will leave me without a Sub, and I dig the vintage look. They've also got a Explorer II homage, something I'd definitely be interested in.

    I've ordered one of the Black Bay style and a Explorer II style... they are on the boat! Will update here when I get them. I've been after a decent looking Explorer II style for a while. Don't know if the GMT will work. Anybody know?

    My Tiger is in the mail. Hopefully it is here when I get home in 2 weeks. I'll update once I see it.

    That's what I thought at first glance but I dismissed the idea because that case was supposed to be custom designed and it seemed strange that they would let Aramar (or anyone else) use it. But comparing pictures... it really does look the same.

    Re: Best Submariner Homage (Part 2)

    This arrived at my door about 20 minutes ago. It's got the NH35A movement and seems to be better than my old 8926OB in a number of other ways (lume, bezel and crown operation, shallower case engraving, etc.). The bracelet feels the same, so I put it on a Hirsch Liberty until my conversion to a Tudor Snowflake homage is complete.
