I finally made my decision.
It came down to the SNKE49 and the SNKH47. I ended up picking the SNKH47 because of off-white dial and the red second hand. Found it for $113 shipped here, though I paid $10 to get it sooner. Bought this Crown & Buckle leather strap to put on it. I'll post pictures when I finally get it. Really looking forward to it.

After months of waiting, my SNKH47 finally arrived this morning. The first place I bought it from in Singapore actually never had it in stock but took a while to tell me. The second place eventually sent it but then it was lost in the mail. Luckily they had another in stock that I'm now wearing. According to their website, there's only one left in stock. If they indeed still have one, it's literally the last new SNKH47 I know of for sale.
The strap I mentioned above looked great in person, but I wasn't crazy about the finished edges on the sides. I ended up exchanging with the Crown & Buckle Bomber, which I'm very happy with.
All in all, I'm very happy to have my first automatic watch:
