The best timekeeper I have is a Victorinox Swiss Army chronometer which my wife bought for me. Those are in your price range. I have found it to be accurate to within a few seconds a month compared to my “atomic” clock.
I have a Movado, which is very stylish but lacks a second hand. Keeps decent time but I see this as a piece of jewlery more than a timepiece.
I have a Seiko watch, and generally Seiko makes very good watches across a wide range of prices. I would, however, avoid the Kinetic, which is what I have. The Kinetic is a self-winding watch with a capacitor to store charge. After two years, the capacitor would not store a charge very long at all. I bought an inductive charger for it, which helped only slightly. I finally sent it to a specialty guy in Bozeman, Montana, who replaced the cap with a lithium-ion battery and it has been great since. Keeps very good time.
Ironically one of the most accurate watches I ever bought was a Mickey Mouse watch I bought at Disney World, but it only lasted a couple of years.
