All right here we go:
A watch I would advise is the Poljot International Chronograph with Poljot 3133 movement. Also sometimes called "Strela" and some other name. A lot of version exit.
The original Russian movement is similar in functionality to the Swiss Valjoux 7734, but with higher number of jewels 23 vs 17 and lever movement operating at 21,600 bph vs 18,000 bph.
Poljot 3133 were taken into space by cosmonauts from Russia, France, Germany and Ukraine.
These things are a lot more unique then your average brand, and priced way below their Swiss counterparts. Around 400-900 online, really depends on the retailer.
And for a chronograph they often have a very uncluttered face:
