    I think personal tastes would produce many, many suggestions here. New versus used is another factor.

    For me, new, Seiko, specifically, SUMO :) And you could have a pair of monsters with the change :)

    I agree! Hamilton is great. In my opinion pretty low in price for the quality.

    You buying from a AD or Grey market? The Hamilton Khaki..comes to mind . Also if you go grey market Oris F1 day /date can be had well under what you want to spend.
    With grey market vendors..they will cover the watch in house for 2 yrs...depends on whether you want more bang for your buck..have bought both ways and had no issues..just another thought for you

    There's no such a thing as a "best" watch.

    All the answers you will receive will be random...

    Since most watch companies use the same automatic movements, from the same manufacturers (ETA, Selitta, Miyota), it's also impossible to make a valid qualitative ranking. One ETA 2824, for example, is not better than another. You have to add other criteria than only "automatic" to receive useful answers...

    A pertinent question would be, for example: "which company makes the best automatic diving watch under $1000? With a water resistance of at least 300 meters and not larger than 42mm? Swiss made if possible?"

    Any seiko with the 6r15 movement. That gives you a manufactured piece for well under a grand. Then there are all sorts of Swiss and German assemblers who use the eta 2824.
