Looking to stay under $1000 either new or used. Wouldn't mind going used for a nicer/higher quality watch. Style is open....but leaning towards something like a Breitling chronograph, GMT or classic styles like IWC portofino. Thoughts/pics appreciated

Breitling chronograph to IWC portofino is a wide range in style. Best bang for the buck brands include: Tissot, Oris, Hamilton, Seiko, Sinn, Baume Mercier, Tutima. I suggest trying on as many as you can and find one you like. Buying sight unseen is not a good idea unless you know exactly what you want.

I'm a big fan of Citizen and Seiko as well as Hamilton (probably one of the best bangs for the buck with a Swiss movement).

Twotone is absolutely correct. Don't buy a watch without taking a peek at it in person first.

You need to increase your budget if those are what you are looking for. I don't know of any chronos or GMTs in your price range even used if your batting around names like Breitling or IWC.

If you mean just stylewise, then I concur Hamilton is a good bet.

Sorry, I worded that funny. I'm not looking at buying a breitling or GMT...just leaning toward those styles. I understand those can't be had for under 1k
