Hamilton Khaki King, I guess, if you're not going vintage. I think I paid around $250 for that.
Are there really any seiko's that are at the $250 line? Most of the Seiya stuff that's worth getting (6R15 movements) seems to have a new price of $330 and up; conversely, most of the Seiko 5 sports stuff can be had for $100~175 on the grey market. Maybe the Samurai, Sumo or Knight (iirc, not sure on the models) are some Seiko diver models worth having, but I am not sure where they are priced at.
For some reason I actually get a lot of complements for my Seiko Sea Urchins; they can be had for $100 to $135, with a little bit of work.
