Welcome to the club. The Hanhart 417es still my grail.
I love your collection I'm a huge Citizen fan.
I think since you got the Hami meaning you are entering the Swiss market I think a Swiss diver or Pilot watch will be a good choice.
First choice would be a quartz Glycine GMT Swiss made:
The automatic selection I would go with a bronze color Swiss made and great price:
For pilot I would go again with a Glycine Airman (many dispute it was the first GMT before Rolex) :
Also a German Classic Laco:
If you care more about dial colors Seiko Presage also have great dials.
Those Seiko dials are just making the competition cry. Great watch
You definitely got a classic.
You might not care but we buy into a business model unless SM is doing it as a hobby. I'm not disputing what's the better watch or which watch ppl should like. I'm just saying the price difference between SM and Seiko are more than just specs and price on a tag.
You are talking two different business models. Seiko has a factory that creates and builds inhouse movements, A design team/ an original design. Probably a huge marketing budget and logistics budget. Seiko needs to stand behind their warranty.
San Martin has no marketing budget. They buy Seiko movements vs actually creating their own. Their sales numbers pales compare to Seiko. San Martin is only online aka no retail presence. The huge list goes on.
For a person that wants only bang for the buck sure go with the homage brand. Which they just "borrow" designs and buy movements and put a cheaper price tag and pump it out. While Seiko probably takes years of investments for new movements, design and bunch of dudes in suits getting paid 6 figures to decide the new watches are coming out.
For sure not worth over $300.
