I personally wouldn't wear anything else, but it's well documented fact that I'm not normal. Very good...

If you're anywhere in-between, the bracelet can be uncomfortably tight or loose. Definitely, it is not so much a dress watch. But a nice...

One thing about the cheaper Seikos is that a lot of people don't care for the bracelets. The good news is...
Also the reissue of the Alpinist is within your range: http://www.seiyajapan.com/product/S-...t-SARB015.html A little bit about its history: http://www.gmtplusnine.com/2009/02/1...eiko-branding/ I might have to get this one myself...
Couple other good dress options if you are not feeling the Seiko: http://www.amazon.com/Hamilton-Jazzm...pd_sbs_watch_1 http://www.amazon.com/Hamilton-H3271...pd_sbs_watch_5
This is a fun challenge. I love Seikos and they fit your price range. 1 watch: http://www.pmwf.com/Watches/WATCHSAL...ackSBDC001.htm (Not sure how the bracelet is, its hard to tell from pictures if they are any good.) or get two: Casual: http://www.pmwf.com/Watches/WATCHSAL...ackMonster.htm Dress: http://www.pmwf.com/Watches/WATCHSAL...adeinJapan.htm But get a strap for the dress watch. Maybe black alligator:...

When they finally show up you are crammed in with five other people all going to different places and you have to share the ride. This really has nothing to...

Very diff than NY Cabbies are one of the oldest mafias in town and their unions have made it hard as fuck for any type of reform. Not enough, too expensive, dirty, rude, I could go on. They create it for themselves and the shit flows both ways....kind alike a teeter totter. But we could...
