    Budget below $1000: Versatile watch suggestions?

    We are going to get my father in law a watch for his birthday coming up. Budget is $1000, ideally a new watch. Looking for something that's a versatile wearer in the vein of a Sinn 556i or Rolex Explorer. 40mm MAX, ideally 37-39mm range. Leather OR stainless steel band is ok. Auto preferred, quartz is ok as well.

    A Sinn 556 series should fall in that price bracket.

    I think they are $1300ish new now, so a bit out of budget

    Citizen Grand Signature Classic. Within your price range, great fit and finish and a really, really accurate, in-house auto movement.

    I'd second this suggestion too but it's a bit bigger at 42mm.
