    Marc at LongIslandWatch is outstanding first of all.

    I went with the Bambino:

    Great watch, and as you guy's stated, much better for dress.

    Also, am falling in love with the Orient Ray II (Blue Dial). Which I will be adding to the collection shortly.

    I debated blue versus black and blue just has more 'swag' (as the kids say. Do they still say that?)

    That one also comes on a bracelet, so you won't have issues finding one to sub on. However, note that they're fairly big watches (43mm and at least 12-13mm thick), so it'll be material on the wrist and potentially tough to slide under shirt cuffs if you're in a dress shirt. YMMV in terms of how much that matters to you overall, and it isn't like people don't wear divers when dressed up [typed as I wear my 40mm/13mm desk diver with a buttondown].
    Very cool watch. Love it.

    EDIT: nvmd it's out of stock on his website as well.

    As for the bracelet, strapcode makes a black pvd coated steel one (or three depending on the buckle) for srpb55. definitely not cheap but if you want good fitment around the case it might be worth it
    I highly recommend Long Island Watch. Mark has a stellar rep and is an ideal vendor. His prices are usually spot on, but even if he's a few bucks higher, it's worth it in case something goes wrong. I also think he does a quick check on each watch before shipping it, so your chances of getting a dud from him should be less.

    He has a YouTube channel on which he shows watches he sells in detail. They're useful to help give you info.
