Best watch in the 1000$ range?

The dream watch for me years ago was a Seiko Tuna. But they were too big for my wrist. I envied my buddy’s that had them. They called them Tuna Cans.

Seiko Marine Master 1000meter can be found near $1000.

Best Buy is a Seiko Tuna 300meter

Or Baby Tuna
Bigs not going to be an issue for me , I measured my wrist for the first time the other night while trying to figure out how to order a timex expedition north. Figured it try that first and see if I could get used to wearing a watch and how much a watch will snag in oil gear. I don’t think they make on big enough to fit my wrist following there instructions to measure I got 9 3/4 inch wrists and there largest is 8”

I have been intrigued by all the watch discussions on the AH forum. It made me dig out a watch I received from my brother in law for standing up in his wedding.

It isn’t an expensive Swiss watch, but it means a lot to me in that my brother in law certainly had no money and this was a very nice gift at the time.

I really like my Tissot Seastar.I've worn it several years with no problems and it keeps time very well. A new one can be had for well under 1K.
 

I wear the Seaholm Rover - Swiss built automatic, sold in USA.. I've beat it to death and no issues....
 
I got my Eraluxe skeleton mechanical and it’s all for $99.99 including tax and delivery

Citizen, $100 .. merely, that's all they have up here. 15yr work watch, it takes an extreme beating in all elements & I can read it.

@CJW steered me toward another Citizen line .. I was surprised to see it local!

Citizen makes some good watches for the price point, just understand that you will get what you pay for.

I had an Eco-Drive, atomic with a titanium case & bracelet. These are the reasons I sold it. The face was a little busy for my taste. Combine that with the poor lume on the hands and markers made it difficult to read in the dark. The bracelet caught the hair in my arms which wasn't fun. Setting the time, time zone and receiving the radio signal was a process that should have been more simple. The only saving grace for this watch is that it never needed a battery. I can't figure out what was going through my head when I bought that thing. I should have watched more YT reviews on it. Fortunately I found a guy in my office who wanted the exact one I had so I didn't loose too much on it.

Just be careful and do your research. Lots of good watches out there for not that much more money.
 
I have to say, I’ve been looking at the Christopher Wards since seeing them listed here
 
When you look down at your wrist, the watch that is there should bring you joy. That's it, nothing else. It doesn't matter who made the watch, how it keeps time or anything else. As long as you are happy, that's all that matters.

What you don't want is to look down at your wrist and be reminded of the watch you really wanted. Take your time and do it right the first time. And keep in mind that you will always have a chance to do it right the next time, but most likely at a penalty to your bank account. Buy once, cry once.

Thank you. The "Automatic" concept is news to me, which as you stated deserves some research. Still 40mm, not quite as slim .. + $450. time will tell.

Is this rifle sold? If not what is the weight of it and do you know if there is enough difference in diameter between the 35W and the 9.3 to allow for a rebore to a 9.3x62 which is what I am after?
Thanks,
Gary (Just down the road in Springfield)

Forgive me if this is the incorrect area, I signed up to this forum just now because I wanted to be on the list to purchase a copy of your autobiography. Please feel free to pass my information along to whomever is selling. Thank you so much. I look forward to it!
I like the Tillie in my picture. They are supposed to fit loose (2 fingers inside hat band), have mesh for cooling, and hold their shape after washing.
