Friends don't let friends buy Invicta
The stock strap is doo doo but it can certainly stand in until you can afford to upgrade. Don't let the strap hold you back.

My SARB017 is a daily wear watch so that means swimming pools, showers, lakes, hot springs etc. Even though you could probably get away with this most of the time without a screw down crown I personally wouldn't.
For arguments sake, the 6R15 and the 2428 are equivalent movements.
I would say the closest watch to the SARB017 in Hamiltons line up is the Pilot Auto H64425135.
I get your point on the 20 atm WR but I miss everything else.
Generally speaking I think there's a lot more similarities between the khaki field and the SARB VS the SARB and a pilot watch.
So I was considering them as "field watches".
I have owned an alpinist and loved it, the dial is incredible for the price but timekeeping is spotty and the strap seems to come from a $15 watch bought in canal street.
The Hamilton has very bad lume but has the huge upside of a terrific, terrific strap. Really amazing.
I am no movement expert but what does make you say the 6r15 and the 2824 are equivalent?
In my (very small) personal experience the eta has had a significantly better performance (I've owned 3 eta 2824 and 2 6r15 and timekeeping wise it's not even the same sport - see below). Not trolling, really genuinely interested in the response: I know there's a lot more than pure accuracy to a movement, I know both are "middle class" movements but nothing more.
To give an idea: this is the performance of my Hamilton in the last days:
My most accurate 6r15 gained 15 seconds per day, my least accurate eta gained 7.
Sorry for the multiple edits, I expanded my post with additional info
