Affordable Alternative to the Aqua Terra?

What's your top suggestion for a more affordable alternative to the Omega Aqua Terra? Especially in Blue 💙!

The Formex Essence 39 comes to my mind.

Any and all suggestions welcome, homage, original, doesn't matter. I'd love to know your thoughts!

A used Aqua Terra…

They really don’t hold their value and lots of new stock discounted on eBay etc.

Shop around 😎

Formex in my opinion is the best choice

Sam Martin, stunning finishing on these and you have a pick of coulour NH35 inside so not likely to give any issues.

I have the Formex Essence. I can highly recommend it.

I would say a Formex or the San Martin homage. But there’s also the Erebus Ascent, which is a bit more Grand Seiko but might scratch the itch?

Hi John, have a look at the Erebus Ascend. I am considering this watch for the same reason. They appear to be extremely well built. All the reviews speak very highly of this new brand -

I don’t own one but from what I read the Formex is a fantastic watch in its own right, rather than a less expensive Aqua Terra alternative. New, I would suggest the Fears Redcliff 39.5mm (the grey and light blue is lovely) and used I would suggest an Aqua Terra. I bought mine pre-owned and it’s clearly been kept in fantastic condition.
