A homage, by virtue of its very nature, always has to balance how much they copy from their inspiration and how much of their own DNA they want to put into their product. It is difficult to generalize homages because the term covers such a wide array of watches.
On one side, you have a reputable brand like Steinhart who mix and match different elements of their inspiration and put their own touches on it. On the other, you have the likes of Invicta who merely copy not out of passion, but rather because they try to siphon off some money from the watch market leaning on current trends.

With the lilt of Irish laughter
Every day and in every way
Now forever and ever after."
