The best vintage homage watches?

Recommended Posts

I find myself increasingly interested in modern watches designed to pay tribute to a particular model from a brand’s past.

Tudor BB58 and the Omega FOIS are ones that immediately spring to mind. One that caught my eye last year was also the Omega Seamaster 1948.

What are some of the ones that have caught your eye in recent times?

Love a vintage styled watch and own a few, the BB Heritage diver and love it, it's amazing!

 

This isn't necessary a homage, Oris have made the big crown pointer for 80 years... and it's also VERY nice imho. Want the 80th anniversary brass version too!

This is possibly my favourite watch (maybe over my Tudor!), It's a lesser know D Hodge 2824F (with a couple of tweaks to my spec) .. more than a hint of 50 fathoms. The finish & polish are sublime, it has an acrylic crystal typical of the time, vintage lume and a movement typical of the period.

Finally, a new Certina DSPH200M... What's not to like!

I have a couple more of a vintage / heritage feel and there a few microbrands and a few Smith's watches that I peep at... Next big incoming will be either Oris 65 / longines legend / Rado captain Cooke.

I must say, black dials do look better.

Although sometime it does make it harder to see. :blind::laughing2dw:

I'd second that, they still have that true vintage appeal.

Is it just me or are those DH's just a rip off  Look-a-Likely rather than the others being "reissues" by the companies that made the original. 

:whistle:

Anyway

One of these new Autavias would be nice.

And they haven't spoiled it by adding a date window.

Tissot also do some heritage watches that you don't often see in shop windows,

I had an original Greenlander like this one,

The remake was a bit of a disappointment, spoiled by the addition of the date window.

I adore this Longines Military homage to the WWII RAF 6b/159 pilot watches.

Not if, but when I get one is the issue, probably after xmas 2019 :)

Large onion crown, beautiful blue steel hands and simple railway number markings, no automatic print on the dial and no date window.....perfect
