For a sportier alternative, Audemars included a brown dial in their recent facelift of the Royal Oak chronograph. IIRC, the Royal Oak has been around for some 30-35 years, and is arguably one of the most timeless designs of the last half century. As well, the more recent production (G series) is powered by AP's own movement. You can dress it up by switching out the bracelet for a croc strap, so there's some versatility here. Bang for buck, the RO is a winner IMO (although I still prefer the older dial design).
