Is there any value in increasing budget a bit - is there something a bit out of my budget range (say 1500-2000) that would be a significantly better investment?
The watch characteristics would really depend on what type of watch you like, chunky sports type or dress watch.
Longines hydro conquest chronograph is a nice watch and in quartz can be picked up used for around €600 and after a year or so you would get your money back
Same can be said for a sports tag heuer I have a red bull limited edition for sale at the moment in your budget and it’s a great saving on the new price and again you would get your money back at a later date
An investment at this price range isn’t going to happen unless you are incredibly lucky on auction sites.
If you want a pic of the red bull model I have send me a message, no worries if not.
Happy hunting ( it’s great fun but once you start you can’t stop)
