I love the stainless steel bezels on the Grand Seiko GMT and Rolex Explorer II but can't afford either on a college student's budget. I am considering the Seiko 5 SNKE01 (Poor Man's Grand Seiko) but at 36mm it is a bit too small for my tastes, which is unfortunate because otherwise it is a great looking watch. Are there any other similar models? I prefer to have one from a reputable and known brand but open to all suggestions. Price range up to $300. Thanks.

Though new it's out of your range, you can pick up Steinhart GMT Ocean 1 pre-owned for close to your upper limit.
