Default another nice micro brand from Portugal

The Borealis brand seems to be pumping out some nice watches at reasonable prices. workmanship is good and the movements are solid Miyotas. The small company made a small batch in 2016 and all sold out. It was a homage to the Omega SM300.
Miyota 9015 is the ETA equivalent to 2824. Sapphire crystal, lug release holes, nice Nato strap. Mine was the blue dial with date and large triangle. Only used ones can be found but their is still a new one in a Malysian store.
This is likely the best homage to the Omega SM300 IMO...

Here outside the dark blue hue dial is more noticeable

Actually the 9015 being is better compared to ETA 2982, being both 28,800 bph and 3.90mm thick.
In terms of size the 8215 compares better to ETA 2824 with 5.67mm thickness.

wouldn't that be an infringement? I assume Omega has already copyrighted any watch-related use of Spectre, Skyfall, etc....

Indeed, it is your opinion...all is in the mind of the beholder....
3500posts with montages and your comment is the first to think they are cheesy.
