What's cool is that the PRX homage is going to have a higher beat rate than the actual product.
For my needs the 9015 is fine because I don't need a super long power reserve and yes a 8bps is nice. I also like the no-date, non-textured dial of the SM.
Just a few assorted thoughts.
On the PRX, if you prefer auto, don’t want a waffle dial or a date, and want to spend 50% less, it’s hard to ignore the SM. For me the size is just right. I don’t love the hex but it doesn’t bother me either.
I’ve recently received the SN0076 and SN026 and I’m more than satisfied. If the quality of the new PRX is anything like those, I’m in. May not be for everyone but what is.

Ahsweddagaaa, there is a lot of blindness in this ghetto.
As long it's shiny, and looks like som'm famous ("iconic'") for under $200, you'll get people going: 🤪 :ROFLMAO:
No blindness, just watches that people think look good, are good quality, and are affordable.
Truthfully I am torn between the Tissot PRX auto and the proposed SM "homage". I've seen prices for the Tissot in the low 500's which I consider affordable. I admit the waffle dial is growing on me, as well as the date. I still think the "1853" is annoying and unnecessary. I'd love to see a comparison between the two.
Would you say the PRX is worth it ? Or does it have a lot of negative details which affect the overall experience.
I need to watch some reviews of the PRX to get more informed, but think for $500-ish the PRX automatic seems acceptable.
Also I see several PRX threads in the Tissot forum Tissot I'd recommend asking any questions you have there rather than the SM forum :)

The Speedmaster homage is doing great in pre orders (already 40 sold in a few days). The PRX homage is waay behind.

That's weird I was told the PRX wouldn't be ready for sale for a couple months? OH , maybe this is pre-orders....
