ForaBot's answer is created from summarizing the responses in this thread.

Based on the information provided by members of the community, it appears that a turquoise sub 300 Doxa homage watch from watchdives.com is a good option for an affordable watch on Ali-Express. Additionally, a watch inspired by the Seiko Prospex U.S. Special Edition, which is surprisingly not a replica, is also a good option. It has an alloy case, hardlex crystal, and a Chinese quartz movement, and is available at a reasonable price.

Nice watch! How do you like it so far?

Thanks, Quint - I like it a lot!
I got the green Tevise (I call it the Chinese Hulk) last year, and it's a pretty impressive $20 automatic Subby homage.
This Loreo, though, is much better all the way around: sapphire, no wobble in the bezel, 40mm (the Tevise is 42), hackable. And, apart from the branding, it looks just like a Rolex - from a distance, anyway.
On sale, and with a couple of coupons, came to $56 and change.
Pretty not bad.

Is it just me, or do these like like fakes?

Dear Viper,

You were right, I was wrong, that 007 is a fake.
When I asked if it would be a Vangeer (since I'd never heard of Vangeer) they came right out and told me no, it would be branded Omega.

Afterwards, I saw what I'd failed to notice before - the second picture clearly shows a full-on Omega dial.
So, thanks for getting in my head. You saved me from ending up with something I wouldn't have wanted.

That's definitely my new favorite AE brand name.

Alright..... But don't laugh at me....

In green, I never had a Submariner homage. Never was to big on it, but with San Martin quality and the price being okay. I though why not. I think I paid 133 euro's. Which is a really good price for a San Martin. About 120 pounds / 157$

Then I got this San Martin in blue it was not planned..... I didn't have a blue watch yet, and figured I'd get this one.

I got a good deal because I threw this in as a bday gift for my dad. So I could use the 20$ ali coupon.

At the same time I ran into some trouble with Heimdallr... So they said they had shipped my order but then it was refunded out of the blue. I thought wtf? So I asked them 'yo what's up?' They said the watch was out of stock. I went to they're site: 'You sell it under a different name now, can you not just sent that?' So I did technically buy the watch again..... So for 92 euro's / 83 pounds or 109 dollars I bought the: https://www.heimdallrwatch.com/store/Tactical-Frog-6105-Limited-Edition-Dive-Watch-p253474145
Which is just a Captain Willard.... Without the bezel color options.

At first I wanted to put the green submariner on a green strap but because I was losing my sanity anyway. I went and did the unthinkable: US $120.01 91% OFF|Nieuwe Groene Abalone Diver Horloge 200M Waterdicht NH35 Automatische Horloge Mannen Sapphire Crystal Rvs Luxe Mechanische Horloge|Sporthorloges| - AliExpress I got a green anti vietnamese rice farmer watch to put on a tropic strap.

So I'm really ashamed. I went from saying it's ridiculous to own three types of the same watch in another color.... To well buying them.

Blue San Martin Captain Willard.
Black Heimdallr Captain Willard.
Green Steeldive Captain Willard.

I can now compare their build qualities though. I was thinking of getting some other cheap watch or the escapement time chrono but I got two fliegers already and didn't want to add another flieger. Also I think I should stop buying. But a nice handwinder still sounds very tempting..........

Ah well this is what I have done....
Sorry, but I'm laughing at you.

It's a good story, though, and I feel like that's probably how a lot of watch review channels get started!
Good luck!

Okay, then...

After TWO different stores advertising the Heimdallr 6309 Turtle in green with green ceramic informed me that they didn't actually have it AFTER I'd ordered it...
And, after the 'Vangeer' NTTD Seamaster I'd been looking at turned out to be an (admitted) fake Omega...

Here are the three I've got on the way...

That looks like the same strap I've got mine on.

Similar style, yeah. Yours is likely a higher grade, if you bought it separately, but this one seems passable. We'll see.

Btw, mine has the same case finishing issues you pointed out in your review: topside, everything looks and feels good, but the underside (and those lug ends!) is all sharp edges, like nobody even thought to turn it over.
