    Whats a homage when its made by a company who owns the other company and they both use a derivative of the same movement?

    I believe this is the case with Longines and Omega

    Yeah - banaleaf and twigs is pretty accurate if they run out of stolen tobacco leaf. They are very resourceful.

    The cigar factory story above is very interesting. Sadly I missed that opportunity as they took our bags from us before we went in...But strait off the table would be nice!

    Hi, yes it is... in fact quite a few brands are in the same 'stable' together - on a watch forum I'm a member of there was a thread about this (an excerpt below out of interest - I take no credit for compiling this by the way!). Personally I think there are certain watch styles (the diver style above being the most notable) that have become so prevalent that to develop a variation on the theme wouldn't be classed as an 'homage' - it's when there are several features that v closely match another brand that it falls into homage territory (in my opinion). E.g. bezel style and font, hand shape, bracelet style etc.

    A lot of brands are owned by 2 big companies, Swatch and Richemont:

    Swatch - Omega, Longines, Tissot, Lemania, Piguet, Breguet, Rado, Harry Winston, Jaquet Droz, Glashutte Original, Hamlton, Certina, Mido, Balmain, Endura, Tiffany, Swatch, Flik-Flak, Union Glashutte, Leon Hatot, Blancpain

    Richemont - Cartier, Dunhill, Montblanc, Vacheron, Panerai, Van Cleef, JLC, IWC, Lange and Sonn, Minerva, Polo Ralph Lauren, Roger Dubuis, Baume et Mercier, Piaget
