After 1.5 years with my Vostok Scubaman, I'm ready to try a new daily timepiece. Preferably under $300, definitely with automatic movement and rotating bezel, preferably made outside China/Japan.
I've read a lot of the guides and advice, but it all seems to come back to Seiko or a bunch of Chinese knockoffs (or originals). I have nothing against the Far East, but since all my electronics are manufactured there, a Chinese watch will feel more "commodity" than "special."
Advice for me? In my price range, what's a bit more exotic? (The Scubaman with NATO strap is about the right size - I don't have a huge forearm.)
