Three of the best choices in my opinion. I'm drawn to all of them. Apparently you and I share the same aesthetic. Burnt orange is nicely warm, but almost too bright an orange. Blue stripe with gold, nice and warm, but with the gold I'm always concerned it's a bit too flashy. M805 in all silver color / rhodium? Perfect blend of understated, function and quality. I bought mine about 10 years ago in this configuration, and it's still my all-time favorite daily user.
