Yeah, I know the big $$ collectors HATE questions like this, but I'm going to ask it anyway. Not long ago I saw a GORGEOUS vintage seamaster cosmic .... blue face (stunning) with burgundy croc type strap. I'd like to tap that **basic look for say... under $200 (the Omega was selling for 10x that much, obviously). Problem is, ... ORIENT, my go-to company, seems to be getting out of blue faced watches. Not long ago there was the CEV0C001D which seems pretty close to right on.
A lesser fit might be the Seiko snkl43, which as far as I know is still available:
So, question is,.... am I missing any possibilities? Requirements are pretty simple... I'd like to stay new; it has to be a blue face (pref smooth, not 'textured') and it has to have that classic 'gents' look to it.
