What's the best wind-up alarm clock for under $100?

I prefer wind-up clocks to digital. I find their tone to be more pleasant. My main problem is finding an accurate one. All the ones I've seen have two problems.

a) They lose time too quickly. The one I have currently loses about 30 minutes between the time I wind it up before bed and the morning. I have to set the alarm back a little to get the right wake up time.
b) Some have a soft alarm. If I set the alarm for 7:00, I don't want it going off at either 6:45 or 5:15.
Also, I've noticed that the ones that seem decent look dorky. I'm looking for something that's stylish—gold or silver tone.
