A writer at another forum commented:
I'd be all over this if it wasn't a homage.
And I responded, because that poster had a decent point:
Y'know, I get that and original design is a much higher bar, there's no debate about that.
But here, I think, there's a lot of beauty in a simple idea well realized. Lots of quite legitimate companies like Bulova, Orient and Glycine for quick examples, have very nice Sub-alikes. And my thinking is that, at least based on looks, and for a sub-alike, they kinda nailed it, here.
And maybe it's actually not that close to the usual Sub-alike, when it comes down to it.
The star, especially its placement, is a classy attribute of 60s/70s Omegas and, unlike most Sub homages, this one doesn't call in the usual circular indices, or the usual cathedral hands, or the usual middle-dot second hand.
And the second hand on this is really nicely played, but more like an Explorer. The stick indices are much more like a thin version of the Datejust II, and the dial is closer to Datejust II than Sub overall to my eyes. It's a nice crisp blend of classic ideas, here, instead of a "model copy", and the shade of blue looks like a great choice. So there's that. I think it works pretty well.
Now, I haven't held one and for me, it all ultimately depends on build quality. Like others, I'm looking forward to hearing from folks who wear it, and hold it.
Well, that and I wish I had one...but...saving for the next China trip
