This is as close to the a11 that you will get for under 150 and its by a brand that actually produced the a11. UHF is super sweet too.
MWC is a pretty garbage company. You can look up the drama if you want, but I would pick any Timex over one of their watches.
It's not a silver dial, but you can get a silver-dialed Hamilton Khaki which fits just about all your specifications, although the dial might be a bit busier than you'd like. However, I feel like you can dress it up or down easily.
Another option outside of an automatic watch, is the Bulova UHF which has a smooth sweeping hand in combination with an accurate quartz movement.
I can personally attest that, in the 3 months I've owned my precisionist, it's gained about 1 second or so... which was corrected when I switched over to dalight savings time.
I'm a big guy and I like being able to read a watch without thinking about it (maybe my aging eyes have something to do with it too). My go-to watch is a Bulova 96B230 ( www.amazon.com/Bulova-96B230-Military-Display-Japanese/dp/B00TQHECP2/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_product_top?ie=UTF8 ) which is big and ridiculously easy to read. Alternate is a Vostok Amphibian, also big and easy to read. I don't have a problem doing anything wearing one of those. If I was 5"2" with small wrists maybe I would feel differently, but my Seiko 5 feels small once I get used to one of those.
I would think that you could wear a lot of watches with a leather or stainless steel bracelet with a suit. I tend to go conservative in my style in a suit, so I wouldn't watch that has a very busy dial.

Bulova makes these Military Watches with a sweeping second hand that mimics an automatic, but has the accuracy of a quartz. It also comes in a Chronograph version. Also, rather than a ticking, it has a very faint hum.
Look at this, I love mine. Supposed to be accurate to 10 seconds a year but I gotta adjust for Daylight Savings anyway.
any mechanical watch in that price range will produce an accuracy that might not be acceptable to you,
Elegant, nice and under 200 bucks
or you can get something that "looks mechanical" but has quartz accuracy
