My brother-in-law is an avid surfer and my sister would like to gift him a dive watch under $1000. Any suggestions are please welcome. I don't exactly know how much water resistance is needed for somebody who goes surfing almost every weekend. Is 100m water resistance enough or does she need to go for something like 200m plus?
Also, the ceiling is set at $1000 because she doesn't want to him worry about bashing up the watch rough (he already owns an Rolex GMT Master II among other watches but never take it surfing, I've seen him wear a Suunto during his surfing expeditions sometime back but he is not into digital watches anymore).
She would like the WUS here to help her by offering some choices from amongst which she might choose. She also open to buy a watch with a quartz movement if its a good quality one, although she said she would prefer an automatic.
