    Watches are very personal things, but you could probably buy a Hamilton Intra Matic and an Oris 65 for 2000 Euros if you go grey market.

    That's a relatively slim dress watch and a slim-wearing (for a diver) dive watch.

    I'm biased though because I own both and don't really wear any of my other watches anymore.

    Do you have any preference on size, case material, dial color, features (diver, chronograph, GMT), etc?

    For 2000 Euros you have a host of options.

    If you like slim nonfussy watches, why not buy the non-limited edition Citizen Eco Drive One? I think you can get it right near your budget. They're just a bit over 3mm thick. Otherwise, if you haggle, most of the NOMOS that retail a bit above your budget are in the 6-8mm range. A Citizen Stiletto is around 500USD at 5mm and change. Other than these, most other "thin" watches are going to be at 7mm or (much) thicker.
    Current Collection - | Ball | Bvlgari | Casio | Citizen | Credor | Girard-Perregaux | Graham | Gübelin | Hamilton | Jaeger-LeCoultre | Longines | Minase | Mühle Glashütte | NOMOS Glashütte | Omega | Rolex | Seiko | Swatch | Undone | Vacheron Constantin | Victorinox Swiss Army |
    Mulling Over - | Minase Horizon | Reservoir |
    On deck - | Omega Speedmaster Apollo 8 Dark Side of the Moon |
    Waiting to be on deck - | Omega Speedmaster Apollo 11 50th Anniversary |

    That Longines is pretty cool. I also like the Hamilton / Oris option.
