SBDX001 is a phenomenal watch which can be bought in great condition used for between $1,200 and $1,500 if you are quick enough.
The GS 8J was already posted and is a great one, the only better would be one of the limited editions of 9F which are not under $2000, in the same range of accuracy but with the huge bonus (for me) of a perpetual calendar would be a NEW steel Chronomaster / The Citizen like for instance the first below, or a USED titanium version like of the last two models below (last one is wr200, other only wr100):Gogiants said:using your criteria for best.

Easy, as a daily wearer then I would want something practical, feature filled, that does it's job with minimal fuss, and gives me the exact time whenever I need it. I would go for something quartz powered, radio controlled, and solar. All three manufacturers have watches like that within your budget. Casio probably has more of them than the other two (with the bulk of those being digital and sporty), while Citizen probably has the bigger number of analogs (and dressier models). Seiko will probably not have very many of either and the bulk of what they have is going to be above the stated budget.Gogiants said:OK, the best in terms of being a daily wearer. Whatever that means to you.
Maybe not so much if they get to see in their hand side-by-side a GS or Chronomaster and a swiss at the same list price ...junlon said:It also depends on your personal style. If you are a low-profile person, you will enjoy Grand Seiko quartz and The Citizen's quiet luxury styles. Otherwise, people around you may question your sanity for spending $2000 on a Seiko or Citizen quartz, instead of Swiss watches.
