Default Breaking the rules , homage time

All things happen for a reason .. long story short , two watches order for xmas , one for me one for a gift . Ordered in Nov 2016 , xmas came and went , and the seller was baffled by the tracking with the item sitting and then ending up being misplaced according to the shipping co .. seller give me a full refund, , 4 weeks later an email from seller confirmed the items moved and might be on the way .. seller said to keep the items no charge , and a good discount will be offered if I use the seller again . I offered to pay , he refused saying the inconvenience if it all warranted this action .
so in on my wrist and another's are a very nice homage Milgaus watch . Well made and comfortable , gains about 1 min a week


Solid links , screw links , screw down crown, oyster style back , high polished , and the topper , green sapphire glass .
BigJon and dermouse like this.

Ebay is one place where you can find this. Just search for "milgauss watch".

Been wearing this in rotation most of the time , just to test the worthiness of this thing and so far it's rocking perfect , I need to adjust the time (a bit fast by 2 min ) per week now .

Can't beat that deal with a stick. What would you consider this an homage of ? Looks kind of generic. But I dig the lightning bolt second hand. Hows the lume on it ?

Looks to be a homage of a Rolex Milgauss, they have the same lightning hand style

The case looks all wrong to be a Milguass clone.

The homage looks naked without a brand on the dial. Still cool though.
