    Can you help me end my watch 2 year watch finding quest?

    I think that the watch I seek must not even exist. I have exhausted google and most of the internet as a search tool, so here I am. 2 years later...
    These are my specifications (along with pictures of the style Im after): Automatic, 100 m or better water resistance, blue dial/face, ability to change band, sub $300. I have found that the sporty feature of water resistance is hard to find with this specific formal style. Any suggestions?

    Here are 2 models that feature my preferred body styling (especially the first)

    What's wrong with the ones you posted already? Don't they fit your criteria?
    Current: Seiko 5 SNGZ71, Seiko SKX007, G-Shock G9000-1V

    To reply to all three of you: I have burnt amazon to the ground looking. They have many watches that just fall a feature short. The pictures that I posted are of watches that represent the watch styling Im after (case/dial), but they lack one or more things that I want. And that watch88 site had at least one watch that came close http://www.watches88.com/pd-seiko-su...n-skz289j1.cfm. But it does not come in blue. ALSO: Seiko is not mandatory. It could be any respectable brand.

    Not sure what the SNK793 is missing. Automatic - Check. Water Resistant - Check. Blue Dial - Check. Easy to change band - check. I changed the band in my SNK791 below

    Ahh, yes. But I said "100 m or better water resistance". And I know for a fact that the SNK793 is only 30 m.

    Why don't you get an almost perfect one and mod it?

    +1. Talk to Jake B or Yobokies. They can build what you want. I had a pretty heavy mod done by Yobokies for just 325usd. Talk to them. Those are their handles on the forum and both are highly respected and trusted.

    It's gotta be the blue dial that's doing you in. These other features a pretty prevalent.
