I owned a Citizen AP1020, which houses the same movement IIRC (Cal. 8651). Based on my experience, you wont find the AP1011 at <$250. Even in used condition it will probably be a bit more. I think the going rate was ~$350-400 when I was shopping around, but I could be wrong. I don't know any sources other than the second hand market - isn't the AP1011 now discontinued? Best bet is to keep an eye out on here and the bay. Sorry I couldn't be of more help. I know the feeling because I was looking at a two tone rose gold version of the AP1011 but it wasn't within my budget.
