Are you going to dive with it?. Do you not want a Chinese brand? Or assembled in China? Or a watch with no Chinese parts? Because there are so few brand that meet that description you are not going to be able to spend under $250.

Besides the Blue or Pepsi Orient Makos and Rays, which would be good choices, here are a couple of alternative movement Seikos.

The blue dial Seiko SKX009K2 $175 at Amazon



Seiko Kinetic SKA369 (it's kinda mechanical) $192 from SkyWatches


Seiko Solar SSC019 (no batteries to worry about) $175 at SkyWatches



The price of this Citizen NY2300-09L means you could add a bracelet and still be under $250
