Other quality brands which embody the Panerai spirit/ethos

Recently a friend of mine showed me his Ennebi. I was quite taken with the quality and it evoked that same sort of visceral response in me as a Panerai. I had never heard of the brand before, but after a bit of research, it sounds like there is a connection between Ennebi and Panerai in the past.

This got me thinking, are there any other quality brands out there which embody the same Panerai design spirit and ethos. The only other one I could think of was Anonimo, which I understand also has a connection with Panerai in the past.

I think IWC and Panerai have a lot in common. While the former is primarily known for their pilot's watches and the latter for their dive watches, there is a lot more that is similar. Both are born out of WWII instruments. Both are generally oversized and worn on leather straps. Both have Swiss build, but a different design aesthetic (German and Italian respectively). They have similar price points and both brands are generally known for experimenting with new casing materials.
