Orient Star Heritage or Seiko Presage Arita?

PS: The Seiko costs twice as much as the Orient.

I am actually leaning more to the Seiko because of the enamel dial but the price is really

Seems like Seiko is not value for money as compared to the past anymore

The Seiko date window cutting off the III is kind of off
Orient Star has other models with cleaner design

Presage Arita is Porcelain, SARX061 / SPB095J1, US$1,700.00.

Presage Enamel is SARX049 / SPB047J1, US$730.00.

Above are gnomon prices, so locally should be able to get slightly less from other sources.
