I've had the previously mentioned Ecodrive Skyhawk Blue Angle edition for quite some time. It's starting to get pretty beat up after a decade+ of daily wear, crystal scratched up, surround chipped up, etc etc.
I've got $350 from Christmas and am considering a new watch. I could probably add some more scratch to the $350 if I found something I really liked.
Not really sure what to recommend but when you figure it out go to worldofwatches.com. At least for me that's the best deal I've ever gotten on a watch.
