I've a Seamaster same as coolhandlukes, great watch. I've had it for 7 or 8 years after finding it in the mud on a night ride. Serviced once, still looks like new.
40th birthday watch
i hav a small collection of vintage wtches . £1k will get you a lovely watch, and is a great pressie. Have a really good look around and decide what you like. Sports vs dress watch, New or vintage etc . If you are near london go to burlington arcade and have a looksie at the vintage stuff, and surrounding shops for new stuff. Decide what you fancy, and then go looking. If it was me i would get a 2nd hand vintage speedmaster. You should be able to get one for just over £1k from the bay, but you need someone to help you source it. I sold a 1972 speedy for £1k about a year ago to a mate. Have a think and e mail me if you have any specific questions ?? If you like new watches - look at Nomos, very well regarded and classic styling..
Some nice Raymond Weil watches about for the £1k region might be worth a look?
