Another one you might consider is the Invicta 8926, which can be found for around $100.

Before you buy that one, don't forget to consider these three models of the SKX line...


The 007

It's About Time

http://cgi.ebay.com/SEIKO-AUTOMATIC-...QQcmdZViewItem




The 009

It's About Time

http://cgi.ebay.com/SEIKO-AUTOMATIC-...QQcmdZViewItem



The A53

http://cgi.ebay.com/Seiko-Automatic-...QQcmdZViewItem


And here's a pic of my Seikos:

It's About Time


All awesome watches, and if you'd like to go the grey-market Ebay route then I can confidently recommend either Pokemonyu or Watches Unlimited (same guy) as I've bought both a 007 and 009 from them and they were flawless.

Check it out!

If you go to your local Sam's club you might be able to pick up the Seiko dive watch that looks almost exactly like that with white "Diver's 200m" printing and a silver bezel for $100.31 if they have 2 or fewer left. They run $169 if they have more than that left, though.

Any of the Seikos should be a good choice.

BTW, I like that Blue Sumo!
