Once upon a time, Ali Express automatic watches were cheap and cheerful. Indeed we bought a few here at NWC to review. Some were nice, others had some issues.

We love trawling Ali Express for the homage watches and the Pagani tribute to the MoonSwatch is one of our faves; great dial colours, nice detailing work on the bezels and the Seiko VK series meca-quartz movement inside, which is a proven reliable unit.

As you might expect this … Continue reading Heimdallr Pelagos Homage is Smooth As You Like
