I'd be fine with anything as long as it's well built and interesting

Have you heard of Autodromo? They're quite a new brand but their products are all based on motorsports and cars (hence the name). 

 

The Autodromo Stradale is just slightly above your budget at $875 but it is automatic, well built, and interesting. 

 

For $600 it's going to be really really hard to get something like a Rolex, Breitling, Omega, etc no matter the age or condition.

An Omega Geneve seems to be around my price point. Seen some decent ones.

 

The Autodromo Stradale looks fabulous, definitely on my watch list now.

Personally, I think the Omega Geneve looks a bit old for people our age.

Just ordered this today:

Tag Heuer Aquaracer Calibre S

 

Cost me €950, a bit over budget, but I absolutely fell in love with its design. Should be here in 2 weeks as it's coming all the way from Hong Kong.

 

It is used, not new!

Great choice. Love the steel and blue face. Classic submariner design, never gets old.

Nice. I'm angling for a Calibre 5 as a birthday present from the wife, one of the 2016-17 43mm models

So it's A Big Birthday for me in 2018, and my wife has offered to buy me a new, everyday watch (I think she's secretly trying to discourage me from buying and selling second hand watches like I was doing a couple of years ago).

My initial though was pretty straightforward and obvious (Seamaster Planet Ocean or Aqua Terra 15000) but to be honest I fancy something a bit different. I recently discovered that Tag Heuer have started doing Titanium versions of the Aquaracer series, mostly Titanium Carbide coated.

Then I spotted this Limited Edition:

2016-TAG-Heuer-Aquaracer-Titanium-Sand-1

Not sure why but really like the look of the black titanium/sand detailing. Pretty sure my wife will hate it though, so I'm pretty sure it's going to be the black on yellow model.

I agree with your wife. You're no spec op desert warrior :p black on yellow looks a helluva lot more sophisticated. Though at the same time I can sort of see where you're coming from as I also pine for some strange colour/material combos when it comes to things. But because it's gonna be your daily I think it best to stick to something a bit more versatile.
