    In term of history, style, fit and finish, and can buy local, Hamilton.

    Always top choice for under $2K from difference reviews.

    I was just looking at the Christopher Ward. The C3 Morgan.
    I like this, but hard to say without seeing it physically and determining its size.

    39mm is pretty small compared to most watches of today. That’s also a very expensive quartz watch imho

    I've had a Marathon automatic SAR for over 10 years, it's in that price range. It's more of a "tool" watch than the Breitling you like, but it is a Canadian made case and band which is unique, even has a maple leaf on the clasp, with a rugged and reliable ETA 2824 swiss movement.

    A reasonably priced Victorinox I bought from Justin @ GEM years ago is one I've worn pretty much daily. Great quality IMO

    Small watches are better. My fav size is 38mm.

    But you’re so big! 44mm is the sweet spot!

    I had a look at the Alpina. Very nice watches, very nice indeed. But not quite my style. A bit too soft around the edges.
    I find the Damaskos are nice, but too much like Swatch Watches from the 80's.
    It is interesting, buying a watch is a very personal thing. Its also interesting seeing peoples different styles on this thread and that of the wristshot Friday thread.

    I have this. It doesn’t get used that often due to the rotation but I do love it.
