    Heres a tough cookie

    Posted this over at the other forum. Seeing if you guys got anything else.
    Gonna give you some criteria and lets see some suggestions.
    Relatively affordable. Max is around the 5k range new. Dont want that crazy GO or Lange suggestions. Cheaper the better.
    Manual winding.
    Display back.
    Power reserve.
    Bonus if its nicely decorated inside and out.
    Swiss or german. But if its a nice asian i wouldnt say no.

    Lets see that brainstorming!

    when you say power reserve, I assume you mean you want a power reserve complication displayed on the dial. Is that correct?

    NEVER say "no" to a nice Asian

    About $1,500, manual winding, sapphire front and back, 50Hrs(!) PR with meter, nicely decorated, decently regulated, and a solid silver case (Yes, actual Ag 925)

    Royal orient WE0031G. Also available with gold hands/markers and a brown croc strap.

    Yeah, all Royal Orients are JDM unfortunately. Easily buy-able though. Rakuten, Higuchi, many others...The JDM route's not so bad once you've been down it before

    Would open up a raft of possibilities.
