Recommendations for a current, C&V-ish 26" wheelset?

So, the Mavic XC717 / Deore M590 wheelset I've been using on my '85 Cimarron for the last 4 years has started breaking spokes. I think it's due to corrosion / fatigue where the spokes cross, but I'm not sure.

I've been debating rebuilding it with new spokes or just getting a new wheelset, and I've started shopping around to see what's out there.

Anybody have any recommendations for a current 26" wheelset that looks good with vintage bikes?

My main requirements are silver rims / hubs, but additional C&V influences would be nice. 32-36 spokes, heavy or light-touring (but mainly general utility and recreational cycling). 135mm (or 130mm) rear hub.
