Which new chainring will look "correct" on a vintage 80's Shimano 600 crank?

Hi all,
I'm looking for a 53 tooth chainring that will look "right" on a Shimano 600 crank. I bought a newish one (shimano brand) for Shimano 600 crank equipped bike (now sold) but the chainring didn't look right. Anyone know of chainrings that will look correct on a 600 crank?

That's 600EX. I'd look for a Shimano BG chain ring. There are lots that look OK.

I think Robbie tunes said 600ex model. I'm trying to match the width of the spider with the width of where the chainring bolts go. I did get a Shimano one time and it was too wide. I think those were for the new beefy looking parts they have now these days! Ugh, (ugly!!!)

I have one of these, the big chain ring (original) looks a lot like a campy Super Record or later Record style.
