I once measured it over 3 days and it was around 3 seconds off >>>

Every time I wear it for 1-2 days it is to the point with my quartzs and the atomic (on the net).
In any case if it will be your only watch I reckon a tiny reset once a week or maybe two will be good enough.
Another couple good things I forgot to mention are the Seiko mineral crystal - very strong- important in your line of work and the date day at 3 which are detectable at a glance and with black background.
Now what you may think as busy is the chapter ring. This ring is elevated and gives the dial a multilayered look.
Two things it doesn't have: 1. hand winding - not a problem for me. If it has been lying around, a few swings before you strap it will be just great. 2. it supposedly doesn't have is hacking - but mine does hack by turning the pulled out crown counter clockwise very slightly until I get resistence but without moving the minutes. In any case it isn't a biggy.

All this said, I too hate busy dials and like a clean look.
The Precista is very clean and a pricasta is on my wish list, although you get acrylic domed crystal vs. shatter proof glass, screw down crown vs. pull push, and strap is 20mm strap vs 22, no day. Nice big numbers in that dial. Nice watch.
Seiko SBCA001 - is way more expensive and no less busy.
Bertucci A-2 is a good looking watch and dial is no less busy, no day. Plus is titanium, should be lighter watch. The white one is also cool!
Citizen - grat sub 100 price for an eco 100m. Good value for money and possibly your best option. Can't see a problem with the hands. has day/date at 3. The watch looks very good as well IMO.
