No issue with the review, and thank you for sharing it. But I have to comment that there is a difference between a “true homage” whose design takes inspiration from an existing timepiece, likely bearing some visual similarities…vs a “clone”, which is a blatant copy and rebadge of an existing design. This is clearly an example of a the latter, and therefore something I will not support.

True, and it also has lume….clearly unique.

@HonestWatchReviews - Your pronunciation of “Glashütte“ is spot on! The “Original” is pronounced with a hard G in German, but I think the Germans would be fine with the way you said it.

Out of curiosity @HonestWatchReviews, what do you do with all the review pieces the brands let you keep?

Do you have a massive collection of watches?
Or do you part ways with most through sales or giveaways?

I actually still have most of them. I have sold a few... Although I need to sell more, as it's getting ridiculous now. Yes, I also use some for giveaways too. So, if anyone is interested in buying any (preferably in the UK, due to shipping fees) let me know 😉
