Hmm.  Tough to say, and everyone's taste is different.  If I were buying for me at $1000 I would probably pick up either a Tissot PRS200, a pre-owned Colt Quartz and I would also consider a few options from Stowa (Marine) and Junghans.  If you can stretch to about $2k the Junghans Chrono is fantastic or the Longines Legend Diver are personal favorites.  The Hamilton is a nice suggestion, too.

 

A little higher in price and Nomos (I love the Tangente) becomes a strong contender.  For the price, with an in house movement, they are almost untouchable aside Seiko.  

 

In the $3-5k category you are in a world with so many options...  Grand Seiko becomes a serious option and, for me based on my current collection is likely the direction I would go.  What's good for me may not be your style and the safest bets are a DateJust and Seamaster, but something from Bremont or Sinn is more interesting.  Maurice Lacroix or Habring2 if you are looking for something a little more elegant and as always, IWC.  If you can find one, the MIH is probably the best answer though.  

 

The problem with a $5000 budget is that you are biting at the heals of the price point where the real magic happens.  Brands like Jaquet Droz and JLC start to open up.  If it were me and I had $5k, I save up and wait for $8-9k.

 

I guess what I am saying is that it is a tough question to answer because there are so many good options and everyone has different taste.  

 



Awesome, thanks for the advice for a pretty open ended question.

Well, this is what I ended up getting. A special thanks to Paulie for your advice and pms on this topic.

Thanks, I agree and is what appealed to me the most about the watch. My wife ended up getting an Orion with rose face with velour strap and it's also a fantastic watch.
