Aren’t they just more poor quality fake watches?
These watches are considerably more reliable than a Feiko / Frankenwatch as they generally feature a modern automatic movement. We have zero respect for someone who buys or sells a fake watch, something labelled as something it is not. An homage watch, on the other hand, shows a person has stlye, taste and a desire for something that’s currently out of their financial reach – this is the legal alternative. Let’s face it, we’d all love to own and wear an Omega Seamaster, Rolex Submariner or Tudor Black Bay but we can’t all afford one. In the past the affordable, but illegal, option was to buy a FAKE / IMITATION / COUNTERFEIT watch. Often made in a hurry from poor quality components with little quality control. Fortunately, we now have another option – the HOMAGE WATCH – at a fraction of the price and 100% LEGAL
A public show of respect to the classic watch designs
Let’s start with a dictionary definition of HOMAGE : a public show of respect or honour towards someone or something. And that’s precisely what all the watches sold here are. They are not attempting to directly imitate a luxury Swiss watch brand. These watches reflect the design of a classic watch. They are attempting to recreate the overall style, design and appearance of a specific watch without directly copying it.
