Low-End Affordable Homages

1. Fanmis Japan Quartz Sports

Fanmis Black Dial Japan Quartz Sports Wrist Watch Men's Luxury Brown Leather 5atm Military Watches

Fanmis always seem to pop up in these homage articles because they make so many different kinds of watches. And their Sports model is clearly paying tribute to Hublot with this watch.

The wide, flat, round bezel with periodic screws around it is all Hublot. And with the unique chronograph, along with small date window at 4 o’clock,  it is almost identical to the Hublot Classic Fusion Chronograph. It’s just missing the extra steel section between the lugs with the two screws.

2. Megir Chronograph

MEGIR Men Business Analogue Quartz Watch with Fashion Blue Leather Strap Chronograph Luminous Auto Calendar for Sport & Work (2074 Blue)

Another cheap and cheerful option from our friends in China is this Hublot homage from Megir. And for less than 100 dollars, it is one of the most affordable on this list.

Like the Parnis above, this watch has a chronograph, so is far more of a homage to the Hublot Classic Fusion Chronograph. The bold colors are also more of a shoutout to Hublot who are know for pushing the boundaries in watch design – just look at their latest models each year and you will see.

3. Megir Sports Watch

MEGIR Men's Sports Analogue Army Military Chronograph Luminous Quartz Watch with Stylish Blue Silicone Strap for Gifts (2053 Blue)

Megir are another more recent Chinese watch maker that loves to produce homage style watches. This model is again a close copy of the Hublot, but also adds it’s own style in a few areas.

The dark blue dial with yellow accents is quite striking, as are the 5 screw placements around the dial. It also has 3 sub-dials for the chronograph, where the Hublot Classic only has two. There is also a very sporty look with the blue silicon strap which should be comfortable on the wrist.

And last but not least, this watch is the cheapest on this list, so if cost is your thing, then this is a bargain!

Mid-Range Affordable Homages

4. Bulova Marine Star Chronograph

Bulova Men's 98B104 Marine Star Calendar Stainless Steel Dress Watch

Headquartered in NYC, Bulova is nowadays a part of the larger Citizen group of watch makers. The reason I tell you this is to say that this section starts to show watches with history, quality and pedigree. Yet the prices are still very reasonable.

This particular model from Bulova is one of their Marine Star range and closely follows the Hublot Classic Chronograph in style. However, you can clearly see their changes with the use of Roman numerals and placement of the date window just below 4 o’clock. 

Of course, there are also other variations you can see around the watch such as the crown protectors, the missing (and perhaps signature) Hublot lug areas and the square chronograph pushers.

5. Bulova Marine Star

Bulova Men's Quartz Stainless Steel Dress Watch (Model: 98D127)

Another of the Bulova Marine Stars worth mentioning is this more refined model without the chronograph. It still has some of the Hublot elements such as the thick, flat bezel with periodic screws, but is a little more elegant.

There are crystals as hour markers for one, and a two tone stainless steel band that matches the screws, crown and hands nicely.

All in all this is less of an outright copy than many of the earlier examples we saw but still pays homage to Hublot.

6. Stuhrling Prestige Harbinger

Stuhrling Original Men's 292P.335965 Sportsman Black Scorpion Swiss Quartz Chronograph Rubber Strap Watch

If you want a Swiss made watch that is still affordable then Stuhrling is often a great option. This very bold homage to Hublot is certainly going to get some attention.

The fluro yellow and black combo is super modern and certainly the direction Hublot is taking with their Big Bang models. There is some variation from theirs though with the minute markers on the actual bezel, the carbon fiber dial and the lack of screws on the lugs. However, if you want something that is just a little like the Hublot but still quite unique, this is a great option.

7. Stuhrling Champion Alpine Sport

Stuhrling Original Men's 3CR.3356P20 Champion Alpine Sport

Stuhrling’s Champion Alpine Sport is a clean homage of Hublot with the round black bezel and black screws.

I like how this watch is still bold like a Hublot but a little more understated with a simple black dial and contrasting white silicone strap.

Of course, you also get a 3 dial chronograph and 100m of water resistance which means you can certainly go swimming with this watch.

8. Daniel Steiger Phantom

Daniel Steiger Phantom RX Black & Rose Gold Luxury Men's Chronograph Watch - Premium Grade Stainless Steel - 50M Water Resistant - Chronograph Movement with Date Calendar - Multi-Layered Dial

Another relatively unknown brand to many, Daniel Steiger is owned by Timepieces International who have been crafting watches since the 90s.

This particular model, the Phantom, is a clear homage to Hublot with the wide, round bezel and screws, the large crown and pushers and the metallic look of the dial, especially in the sub-dials.

9. Swiss Legend Trimix Diver

Swiss Legend Men's 10541-RG-01-BB Trimix Diver Collection Chronograph Black Rubber Watch

Hublot normally use a circular bezel in all their designs, except for the Spirit of Big Bangs. However, this particular watch reminds me of their hexagonal bezeled Aerofusion model. At least in shape.

The lug area is also classic Hublot, as are the large crown and pusher, although the design does stray a little from the original. Which is nice for a change.

There are also some other refreshing elements on the dial I love, like the arrow highlighting the date window, the cut-off hour markers and red tips to the sub-dial hands.

Lastly, if you want something seriously water-resistant, this watch is rated to 200m, which means you can easily dive with it.

10. Invicta Marvel Series

Invicta Men's Marvel Stainless Steel Quartz Watch with Silicone Strap, Two Tone, 30 (Model: 26915)

Celebrating the success of the Marvel obsession movie and tv makers seem to have at the moment is this range of watches from Invicta. Which is actually no surprise given that the Hublot style watch matches the brash, bold and over the top style of Marvel comics in general.

The Punisher model shown here is perhaps the most dull, with an all black and silver style. It also varies the most from the Hublot with the bezel increasing in width where the screws are, the large hour markers , and of course the skull sub-dial and second hand.

If you want to go all out and get something even more colorful and Marvel-like, there are plenty of crazy models to choose from.
