kitchen swing-arm

I need a new kitchen faucet on a stainless sink. The old faucet is broken. I might be tempted to install a fancy-pants, newer-style faucet, but I was told that one of quality would cost several hundred dollars.

I am willing, however, spend enough coin to get quality in a replacement for the simple swing-arm. I want to install a good quality faucet and not have to deal with it for many years.

Does anyone have any advice about models that I should consider.

Thanks for reading

American Standard makes a version of their Colony soft line that has a large gooseneck spout and the valve body itself is very simple and seems to be very well made.

Some people may look down their noses at it because it's a 2 handle, not a single. I personally think it is a great looking faucet at this price range.
