I think this is all very personal.
I assume you're not too enamored by any specific watch movement, and in that case, i think any respectable movement will do.
At that price range, tbh, I would look for 2nd hand watches as they give you a much better value and many more choices.
You could look at Glaschutte pano series, JLC, Breguet, Gramd Seiko.
If you love the sweeping hands, i would highly recommend you check out the Grand Seiko spring drive. They seconds hand is...
