    Recommendation for a sporty/casul watch at around $2000-$3000 USD?

    Just turned 18, and want to get a decent watch. Already have a Tissot Powermatic 80. Not sure the exact model, but it is a dress watch, so I want one that I can wear normally, since I don't dress up or work at an office. $2000-$3000 USD as in retail price; I am probably going to a grey market seller that can sell at a discount of 25-30% off. I want something that is less than 42 MM, and very well made in terms of precision and build quality. My $700 Tissot has a precision of roughly +/- 6s a day, so I would expect this one to to be much better considering the price I am looking at. I was interested in the Tag Heuer Aquaracer, Tag Heuer Carrera Caliber 5, and Longines Conquest Classic (base model with no complications). Any recommendations or information would be appreciated.

    I'd look for chronometer certified watches if you want guaranteed accuracy. Omega SMPC can be had for $2700

    Tudor Black Bay 36 would be a great choice, imo.

    don't expect it to be MUCH MUCH better.
    Even Rolex puts out +/- 2s

    Mido chronometer grade, e.g. the Multifort lineup (under $2000).
    Grand Seiko automatics (just under $3000).
    Maybe a Sinn or Muhle Glashutte with a high grade ETA/Sellita ($2000-2500).

    Your Tissot is know to have accuracy issues as a trade off with the long power reserve.

    I’d be looking at a lightly used Omega AT, an Omega Seamaster Pro, or a Tudor black bay.

    I'd go for the Black Bay at that price range.

    i would also recommend tudor BB for this price range. I had blackbay S&G on leather strap quoted at $3100 by AD. ended up going with metal bracelet, but leather strap would be just above your price range.
    I am very impressed with the performance of this watch.
