Not exact but close. I think there is a Baume & Mercier model that looks like the porto too, but that one is likely close to $1,800...

I think the Hamilton Jazzmaster looks more like the IWC than the Khaki ones.

The Jazzmaster has been posted here many times; again not like IWC but still a superb piece.

Parnis is a great IWC homage. Can be found for $75ish on ebay.

They have the portuguese homage and also a big pilot homage.

Thanks, this isn't my first lux watch. Just my first Hublot. Look back at some of my posts... I have a nice watch or 2.

Pathfinder Sea?

Always loved those models. Just the compass and altimiter alone is worth what they cost imo.

i really like the strap, but the square watch just seems a bit off on your wrist.

Thanks GRIFFIN. Yea this thing is pretty huge (46mm) and I think the camera angle exaggerates the size. I have 8" wrists and it's still pretty big on me.

I love the look of B&R's, but they are huuuuuuuge. I feel like some of them could be a wall clock as opposed to a wrist watch, lol.

To each his own, but I think the ultra-large watch thing has passed.

It's more easy to kill with a sword than with a gun.

A sword is more frightening than toy-looking gun like glock.

robbing with a sword is a good thing

Amen. I hated those things. Not to mention their a PITA to work on.

B&R does have some dope models, though.
