1k is neither here nor there. Good recommendations were made with regard to Timezone. Try their B&S. On the topic of Tag. It's not well regarded in WIS circles, and doesn’t hold value too well, but it is a good workhorse depending on the model. I wouldn't mind wearing a Monaco or a Heuer reissue or even a Carrera, but would not wear any of their other models. Although some Aquaracers sit well on the wrist. Don't listen to quartz proposals. Go mechanic. Seamaster is always a good option and it's easy to resell. Speedmaster is nicer IMO but difficult (impossible) to get in your price range. If you don't mind wearing a smaller watch (under 38 mm) then there are lots of nice vintage options. I like lots of Girrard perregaux models from 50s to 70s. Under 1k there is always Seiko. Sinn and Oris also offer great options in this price range.
