The Comfort Craftsmen is much more comfortable. 
Barry from bootsonline.com.au answered my question as follows: "The Lachlan sole is thick and tough but not so flexible with a flat leather insole just like the Craftsman. The Comfort insole is just that.  Comfortable and cushioned." From experience I know the Craftsmen flat leather insole is pretty hard and stiff. So based on Barry's comments, it sounds like the Lachlan is significantly less comfortable than the Comfort Allrounder and Comfort Craftsmen, both of which have...
Can anyone compare the Lachlan (B543V) to the Comfort Allrounder (B543LN) in terms of comfort?   Lachlan http://www.bootsonline.com.au/b578.htm Comfort Allrounder http://www.bootsonline.com.au/B543LN.htm   I'm looking for a casual boot, and for this purpose prefer the look of the Lachlan for its thicker sole. But the Lachlan lacks the soft "Poron insole" used on the Comfort Allrounder, so I am concerned it may be less pleasant to wear. On the other hand, the thick...
Thanks so much for your help!  Barry of http://bootsonline.com.au/ also replied to these questions via email; here are his comments:  All boots will stretch over time if there is pressure on the leather.  That's how cows can get fat.I strongly believe that the boots should be comfortable right from the beginning.All those B543 Craftsman models are made on the same lasts and the fittings are identical.The Henley has a wide front (H width) and a narrower heel (G width). Very...
I was able to try on two pairs of RM Williams chisel toe ankle boots:   1. AU/UK size 9.5 G Craftsmen in Chestnut Smooth leather (model B543Y) 2. AU/UK size 10 G Comfort Craftsmen in Suede leather (model B543S)   They both fit pretty well, but... Any help with some or all of the following questions would be greatly appreciated.   A. Although the length was fine, the 9.5 G Craftsmen were slightly tight across the ball of my right foot. The left foot was fine. Will the...
You've found some great candidates. Personally the 171 is a favorite. I also like the Seiko black Monster for its "tool" look; it took me awhile to buy it, but I'm glad I did. I have the old version, the SKX779, which is still available. The new version, the SRP307, has a hackable movement that can be wound, while the old version lacked these features. It is larger than the ones you're considering at 42 mm, but the face is probably similar in size -  due to the large bezel...
The Seiko SARB027 has a plain dial, but was discontinued; you might be able to find it pre-owned
You might also consider the Seiko SARB065, going for around $400 new with the strong dollar.http://www.styleforum.net/t/223261/poor-mans-watch-thread/3405#post_6811409
 Orient seems to be taking their styling cues from vintage 1960s Hamiltons
