I see you're looking at the Heritage Black Bay, and possibly an alternative to it. I'm in the same boat. I'm in love with the Black Bay (or is it lust?).
Breitling Super Avenger, Casio GA-100 1A1, Certina DS Action Diver, Citizen AT8020-03L, Citizen AT8110-53E, Glycine GL0063, Panerai 111, Panerai 505, Parnis Pilot, Raymond Weil Allegro 4817, Steinhart Ocean One GMT
Seiko: 6139-6002, SARB065, SKX009, SRPB41, SRPB49, SSAK053
Seems reasonable to me
C'mon...lets not overstate it. They are not sanctioning Poland or Russia. Nor are they sanctioning individuals.
They are just not going to take orders from and ship watches to individuals in those two countries for what sounds like a reasonable reason.
The quality Anchor III 40mm is "closer" to Rolex Explorer 39mm and Tudor Ranger 41mm but "close" enough to the Black Bay 41mm to seriously consider it. The Anchor III has it's own merits too including a good Bernhardt bracelet and 2 yr. warranty. Under the hood is the automatic Miyota 8215. Not the Swiss movements of the more expensive competitors. Limited to 300 numbered pcs in total.

Sounds fair enough to me.
Seiko does not allow its Japanese ADs to sell to the EU for entirely different reasons (protectionism) just another obstacle put in the way of the bona fide watch enthusiast.
How not to pose watches.
This is not a new phenomenon. Many micro brand owners will not ship to those countries for that very reason. It is a terrible situation when crooks screw things up for the rest of us that just muddle about living honest lives.jmho
Interesting to note the top watch in post #1 seems to be the vintage 2008 44mm Officer's watch with ETA Unitas 6497 and contoured lugs. The lower right 42mm burgundy diver from the current collection has sold out.
