    Well since you asked........

    If it was a dive watch it would be a used Doxa---very technical, sturdy dive watch with a unique style

    If it was a dress watch it would a very nice Tissot or equal

    If it was a chronograph, probably a Hamilton Khaki X-wind or the Steinhart Nav B-Uhr chrono

    I would buy 8x Seiko '5' watches at ~$125 each covering a multitude of colours and styles.



    OR

    1 Longines Conquest

    I'm content with my watch collection

    I don't know of a NIB watch that is $1k or less that I want.

    If I had a free $1k for spending on watches, I'd put it toward my vintage/out of production collection: right now I'm on the hunt for a (early version w/"V" bridge, not "U" bridge) Valjoux 22 example that does not require a complete restoration.

    I'd get a Seiko SBDC005 ...


    And, from what's left over, an SCVS013 ...

    A few of this and some of the other ...

    Probably the new Mido Multifort and save the balance of the few hundreds bucks.
    Saw the internet pic the other day and got smitten by it ...

    What is NIB watch mean? Either way, I would go for one of these two watches:
