    Daily wear suggestions under $1k used

    I'm looking for something I can dress up or down, that I can pick up for no more than $1k used.

    I wear a Stowa Antea 390 to work, and usually g-shock 5600s as casual weekend watches.

    Would like something 39-42mm, preferably white face but open to others, independent brand would be nice, and non-diver. My first thought is a Stowa Marine auto with silver dial/matte case, but I'm wondering if I should diversify brands and look for something different. it does seem to fit what I'm looking for, though.

    I also like the Glycine Eugene Meylan in either white or blue dial. Not sure how often they come up for sale, though.

    Any other suggestions on watches I should consider?

    The Stowa Marine is a good choice, as would be their Partito model.

    I know they're not "independent," but at that price point there are a few nice options from Hamilton or Tissot as well.

    Consider a Tag Formula 1 Chronograph.

    If the Stowa and the Glycine are your thing then go for one of those but have a look at the Oris watches too.

    Hamilton Longines or ORIS watches may all fall in that category :)

    Personally I feel a Hamilton khaki is great fr everyday wear. You could MAYBE find a breitling colt or similar at that price point

    Hamilton khaki is great but since OP has a fat budget. I suggest he gets a longines hydroconquest auto to fit the $1k limit, still with enough left to get a good leather strap.

    I second the Hydroconquest. It is particularly nice in person, up close.

    What do you think of the more dressy Conquest? More dressy with GMT. It wears like a Submariner because it can do both sporty or dressy.
