    Not an automatic recommendations

    I am looking to but a battery solar or even wind pier watch does not matter.

    I want the watch to be always ready. Pick up and go.

    I am looking for a slimish 12mm or so analogue watch around 36 to 40mm case

    The absolute dogs b@&£•$s would be a used Grand Seiko quartz but with a grand to spend would need more luck than you could shake a cat at.

    Anyway I am just after any recommendations or things to avoid as I have no idea about this type of watch.

    Thanks for looking

    With a bit of luck you might get a GS quartz off SC for a grand; it does happen. All ou need is a bit if patience. Worth the wait.
    So get on SC as soon as you can.

    Aqua Terra Quartz may be worth a look as well. It's a couple of years ago now but mine was only around £1200 new from Chronext.

    You can send the seller a private message though if one comes up. If thats what you want, id wait it out as they do turn up.

    Being a boring Rolex enthusiast I had to buy a 1675/16750 homage because I can't stomach paying the current Rolex 4-digit prices.

    It was a bit disappointing that it's a quartz at first but then again I haven't owned a quartz watch since... well... I don't remember... and I bought this shameless homage.

    Not my photo, the watch is going to arrive next week. I'll make a review of the watch when it arrives.

    There's loads of options. If you like the GS 9F quartz, and have a budget under a grand, then you should consider:

    Citizen Chronomaster
    Casio Oceanus

    All grab n go, lightweight, and under 40mm.

    Omega Aqua Terra is a great choice, I debated between the Omega and Grand Seiko 9F.

    Iíd also consider the Bulova Precisionist range: high accuracy quartz, plus that amazing sweeping second hand.

    You'll pick up an early Breitling Aerospace with the italic numerals for just under a grand.

    Make sure its had service history though... Could bite your wallet!

    Save for the Grand Seiko. In a league of their own
