No pics currently, but I just picked up an Orient Blue Mako off Amazon for a little over 100 bucks and I am very impressed with the look and feel of the watch. It's one of the best deals for the price out there in my opinion. Its a great watch for both office and casual wear which is something I was looking for. Only complaint I have is that the band could be a little better, but I may throw a Zulu strap on it somewhere down the road. Very pleased!
Try HMT, there are a ton on -ebay. Indian company, everything seems to be fairly slim and hand-wind, lots of options, and many with domed crystals (though not mineral ones). I have a "Pilot" model that I love, and they seem to come with all sorts of faces. Exchange rates make 'em dirt cheap, too. Based on my experience, the bands will be garbage, but dropping $15 on a decent leather band at the watch repair kiosk at the mall will hardly kill ya.
Swapped out the band the day after I got it...
