So I ran across , the term not too long ago and did some research on the subject. I guess a homage watch is sterile , with no markings showing what it is paying homage too, vs a replica which is trying to replicate the exactly a authentic.
I really like the look of Paneria watches, expecially the Luminor style. I can't afford one and don't know if I'd want to wrap up that much cash in one watch. I've got three authentic Omega's and the cost on those three combined would barely touch the price of a pre owned PAM. I ran across a watchmaker out of N.C. that will build you pretty much whatever you want, with a swiss movement. So I ended up ordering one from him, Ti case, sterile black sandwich dial, swiss movement (although manual, don't usually like those) and a sapphire AR coated crystal. I'm pretty excited to get it , even though I do have some reservations of the whole homage vs replica thing. I will in no way try to represent that it is a PAM, if someone asks I'll tell them the truth. What do others think ?
