Seiko is tremendously underrated. The Cocktail time in steel beats the pants off of any ETA competitor in the price range, and the Grand Seiko line is positively sublime. Hell, even their older quartz pieces can be charming. I'm currently wearing a 7A28-7049 that I found in a thrift store for less than ten bucks :) 
I'm torn on the Hamilton. On the one hand, it's aesthetically a nice watch. I don't find anything particularly inspiring about it, but that's just my own taste. On the other, it's nearly always the first recommendation made by budget-minded horological enthusiasts, so to someone in the know, seeing the jazzy can mean "I went on to the nearest watch forum, asked for a budget choice, and went with the first thing a random person on the internet suggested to me."  It sort of...
For that kind of money, not doing at least MTM is borderline unthinkable here. You should really be going bespoke.

^^^  HUGE props for being a complete pleasure to work with! :D   Those complements XD
Two e-thrifts. A LOT of skin in the game on them, but... Cha-ching. Crockett & Jones / PRL Ravello shell chukkas, 13D [[SPOILER]] Santoni FAM #8 shell captoe derbies, 10.5D [[SPOILER]]
