    Help Me Find My Watch!

    So I'm having a difficult time finding a watch that matches my desired features.
    I didn't think what I was looking-for was so-hard to find, given the immense variety of timepieces out there, but I've spent countless hours browsing here, ebay, Amazon, etc without success, so here I am, seeking assistance from heurological wizards here.

    These are the features I'm looking-for:

    • Diameter of no-more than 40-42mm.
    • A "Clean" bezel without any hash/compass/etc.
    • Standard Spring-bar-type Band so I can change bands when desired.
    • Black or dark grey face
    • White or Silver lettering, easy to read, not too ornate.
    • White or Silver Hour/Minute Hands
    • Red Chronograph Hands and Second Hand
    • Chronograph (preferably more than 1 hour, don't need more precision than 1 second)
    • Date
    • Day Of Week would be nice, but not completely necessary
    • Automatic/Solar preferred, but battery is OK
    • Price tag south of $500 USD please.


    The closest thing I have found is a Timex T2M467 (Click Here), but I would want to paint the chronograph/second hands red... and I'm not sure it's worth it to modify a "cheapo" Timex in that manner.
    IWC Pilot Chronograph works too, but man is that thing expensive, and I would still want to paint the chronograph/second hands red!

    I'm hoping that there is a watch out there that looks/works like this out of the box.

    Help Me Obi-Wan!

    Wow. I thought this would be a lot easier...
    The best I could find was a Seiko Solar, but it looks like it has an integrated bracelet:

    Is this eco-drive too busy?

    I know, right!!?? It's not like I'm looking for a leopard-print watch face with a purple suede band made from baby seals.

    That Eco Drive looks OK... but again, I would want to paint the Chronograph hands red to match the second hand. That's pretty close though.

    I appreciate the effort.

    How about the Christopher Ward C40 Speedhawk? Its 42mm, auto and can be found for around your price range used.

    Actually that would be easier, what you described is actually a part of Hublot's regular lineup.

    It's a shame this one is 44mm, but I'll post it because it looks pretty cool. It was only released about a month ago so you won't find any for sale just yet

    Well Now... That's pretty darn close. I'm a little concerned that a 44mm case is going to look HUGE on my wrist... but I've definitely noted this one. Hurry Up SEIKO!
    I prefer the leather band on your suggestion, but aesthetically I prefer this Bezel (
