Hello, fresh graduate here. Looking to buy a men's watch to match smart casual / daily wear since I already have a dress watch for formal occasions. Can anyone offer suggestions on the following?

1) Brands? (Looking for a reliable manufacturer, currently looking at Seiko, Tissot)
2) Shops

Budget: $700 to $1.2k

Thanks for the suggestions in advanced!

PS: Currently have these in mind:
https://www.tissotwatches.com/en-sg/...lack-dial.html
https://www.tissotwatches.com/en-sg/...ack-black.html
How about this ?

Thanks for all the suggestions guys! Looks like Seiko seems to be the highly recommended brand. Is it worth to get an automatic/mechanical watch with this budget (accuracy/durability) or should I stick to quartz? Are there any shops to recommend or the price is usually the same(citychain/h2hub)? Thanks again for the replies!

I thought of recommending that as well but realized that Bambino is really not for everyone.
As much as i really love the design i must say i agree with some criticisms over its size which seems rather huge on a small wrist like mine.
Plus he said he alr has a dress watch which i assumed he doesn't really need one entry level like Bambino, probably looking to invest in a better watch.
Yeah was hoping to get an upgrade from my previous watch (around $300) to last for the next few years. Thanks for the suggestion anyway!

Automatic, the slope quite slippery one .... once you start, can get out of control very fast....
