    Explorer I homage

    I think what I want is a Explorer I homage for less than £50. Ideally not sterile, as I think there needs to be something on the dials but fine with Bagel sports and Alphas. Must have a link where I can but, Alpha seem the front runner but I can't remember what to search ebay for....

    Something like this. Must be 20mm lug width as I already have the strap...

    Looks like it's available on the Alpha site. I had one of these and really liked it.

    I wasn't sure if that site is legit. I always thought they were less than that but might take the plunge if I can't get anything in the UK.

    Direct from Alpha is probably your best bet

    I have a few bagels, and these are real bottom of the barrel watches. The look cool, but even compared to the likes of Parnis and Alpha, it is cheap shizzle.
    But when you need a really pimp watch, for $10 you have fun watches:

    The Bagel sub is brilliant for the money. Not tried the others

    I've got a Milgauss, it's not bad for the money.

    That's a 1016 homage so slightly different
