    Help me find an automatic watch for about $1000

    Hey guys, I am looking to buy an automatic watch with a simple face but I don't know what to buy. Before I was keen on buying the Seiko SARB021 as it ticks all the boxes except the size. So here I am, throwing the question out at you. What are my choices and here are my requirements.

    1. Must be an automatic
    2. Case should be between 40-44mm
    3. No chronographs. I only need the time and date.
    4. Bracelet (I don't think leather suits me)
    5. Black dial, silver hands & brushed metal.

    So help me out guys. What do you guys suggest? and my budget is around $1000.

    Just to give you an idea what I had in mind.

    Here's your new watch:



    Great watch, about $800ish after discount I think (below $1000 MSRP). I've held one myself and it was gorgeous. Everyone is reported good accuracy. Good in house movement. Good size (a little bigger than it appears in the photos). Smooth 28,800 bph sweep...just such an awesome watch for the money.

    Do you know the model name/number. It's quite nice. Throw a cool sporty band on it and your good to go ! !

    Completely agree with CitizenM and on the Citizen Signature Auto. Here's a pic of mine, I got the white dialed one just a few weeks ago. Actually bought it after a post by the very same CitizenM!

    Beautiful watch, best watch I own under $1000, easily, fit, finish, just superb. Got mine from forum sponsor AZ Finetime, I'm fortunate that I can physically drive there. I think they have a banner ad on here. Ask for Joe.

    Good luck. I'd also consider a Tissot Visodate, and maybe a Hamilton Jazzmaster.

    Here's a pic of the movement, a real stunner.

    The Citizen looks fantastic! Another one to look out for is the Hamilton Intra-matic. Not too expensive, and a cool, retro look. I'm having trouble posting a pic now, but I'll try to get one up soon.

    The Citizen that CitizenM shows is beautiful. Below is another potential candidate.

    This Sinn 556i matches some of your requirements but not all. The case size is 38.5mm

    Check out Epos. They have at least 3-4 models which could suit you and they have many different colour combinations available too for certain models.
