Enter homage watches – crafty clones that allow you to enjoy a watch that looks like the real thing but at a fraction of the price. For every authentic luxury watch, there are hundreds, if not thousands of homage, so the options can quickly become overwhelming – and even though cheap, you still want a timepiece with decent quality.
The Kimsdun watch features a polished stainless steel frame with a faux leather band design, a circular 44mm dial, and a buckle closure. And while the display is circular, the frame is braced in a near-square cage that makes it a great transitory watch for people who are used to circular watches. And it sure does tell the time with two functioning minute and hour hands, a weekly display, and a complete calendar. The three hands on this watch are luminescent, meaning you won’t have a problem telling the time even when it’s dark.
At 78g, the Kimsdun watch has a decent weight to its bulk and is not as featherweight as many brands. A close-up look at the Kimsdun Luminous Military Watch reveals a couple of differences and elements it’s missing from the authentic Panerai watch.
