I saw that post Lee. Did you alert Wing or did he see this?
And they tried to steal the Hercules name for a watch too. They changed it to Herc'
It's the nature of the watch business and many other industries. Wing has followed Elshan with meteorite bezels, etc. Zelos fans and ET have made note of it a few times, but even ET takes some cue forms from historic designs and tweaks them. I don't think Invicta has anything to worry about in court with this one.

Bremont H-4 HerculesAt a time of austerity, one American defied convention to build the largest aircraft in the world. Famously known as the ‘Spruce Goose’, the H-4 Hercules and Howard Hughes’ genius was defined by one minute. One minute of flight on 2nd November 1947. In that time Howard Hughes’ vision for the greatest aircraft ever built was vindicated. It’s fitting therefore that the aircraft is being commemorated by a timepiece of this stature.
A sublime fusion of micro-engineering, watch design and aviation history, the Bremont H-4 Hercules Limited Edition chronometer is limited to only 300 Stainless Steel, 75 Rose Gold and 75 Platinum pieces. It salutes this iconic flying boat of the 1940s and contains original birchwood from the fuselage of this iconic silver flying boat. A percentage of the proceeds from each limited edition will go towards to preservation of the aircraft at the Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum in McMinnville, Oregon, USA.
It is on the public record. OKO International owns the Hercules trademark in USA.
