    $449? Uh, no. I think that was the kickstarter price.
    There are two swiss autos, the A7 and the A12. Mine is the A7 with the ETA 2827 movement, which I chose primarily due to the choice of faces. The A12 is made with a higher-end movement (ETA 2985) but is only available with a "dirty dozen" homage design. While a beautiful watch, I don't care for the way the second hand is implemented in the dirty dozen watches, and I wanted a date option, which a dirty dozen watch lacks.
    The A7 is currently unavailable, but they plan to make more soon. I believe the retail price is $699.
    The A12 is available at $899.
    Both are hand assembled in Switzerland.
    The A5 has a Miyota 9015 movement, is assembled in California, and is available for $449.

    The A5 and A7 can look virtually identical save for the "swiss made" imprint on the face of the A7.

    I just got a Seiko Golden Turtle a few weeks ago and it's wonderful. Real standout piece with character and feels and looks awesome. A little over your range, more like $575 all in with tax.
