    Geckota and Steinhart are in that range: https://www.steinhartwatches.de/en/d...reen-2010.html

    Is it the 41mm or the 47mm (which can make a difference in terms of standing out)...assume it's not for sale?

    Tisell in S. Korea make a pretty good watch. They have homages to both the Rolex submariner "Hulk" for a reasonable price (around $230 I believe) with the reliable Miyota automatic movement.

    It’s the 41mm. Everything is for sale for the right price...shoot me a PM if you want to make an offer.

    I have a green Seiko that I love. Armogan makes a green Spirit of St. Louis as well.

    This is the Seiko. There's also a green dial Seiko Presage that is gorgeous.

    I think it looks pretty sharp for the price! Love Orient watches for that reason in general.
    I'd get that Orient all day long over a Chinese rolex clone. Orient makes actual quality watches, and the Mako has its own style and isn't a blatant ripoff.

    I gave my green Seiko 5 to the wife. Every now and again I think about taking it back for a spin around the block. Great watch the Seiko 5.

    For the price point and for what I'm looking for, this one seems like a nice option. https://www.amazon.com/Stuhrling-Ori...st_bbp_dp&th=1

    Nobody's gonna pretend it's a high end product, but it has the look I'm going for for a reasonable price, and is almost certainly more reliable than the rando Chinese piece.

    Yeah, they're decent, but they get a lot of grief from the horological community for being in the same category as Invicta (compare the "regular" price to the "sale" price that happens to be pretty much everywhere) so I may have been prematurely defensive.
