Seamaster Aqua Terra Big-Size Chronometer - 2502.80.00
  +1 I've seen plenty of Seiko and Orient pieces for less than a century, particularly online.    As far as Invicta goes, they're just brash, gaudy homage pieces for the most part. I'd much rather go for something a trifle more original.
  I agree with you 100%! A cheap Casio is going to do a damn good job telling the time and it'll last for ages. What I meant was the actual case, dial, and strap on the Rotary; every time I've seen a watch by them it just reminds me of the cheap stuff I used to see in Chinatown. I could be completely wrong and perhaps it's a great watch, I'm just going on experience.

The AP2 was always so much more manageable on a day to day basis. I remember having to literally plow through gears to get anywhere in the AP1.   That said, the AP1 was always slightly more exciting to drive "liberally"; that is until it would break traction on an on-ramp and kill you of course
