I would recommend the Orient Ray II. It comes with a mineral crystal and a hacking and winding in-house movement. The watch is a strap monster and looks really good with just about any strap you throw at it. The movement is pretty accurate, mine is at +1 second per day (+6 sec. when worn and -5 sec. when stored with dial down at night). The fit and finish exceeds the quality of an average $120-150 watch and more like the $500 range. I don’t think it meets the ISO 6425 standard but I’ve taken mine snorkeling without any problems. The cons are—some have complained about the crown being too small and the bezel being too stiff. Both are a nonfactor for me which is why I proceeded with the purchase. If you want sapphire crystal, I believe the US version comes with it for a higher cost. You can also get the Mako III with sapphire for around $220.
