Not sure where you are based but the Brum one of these is meant to be good - http://www.clockandwatchfairs.com - can't vouch for the Brunel fair, but would imagine it shouldn't be difficult to find a Speedy Pro at a good price at both.

Are you talking about a day-date? Price is decent as long as condition is good.

By GTS I assume you mean Gents? If it is just a standard datejust, solid gold but with date then it not a bad price at all. If it is a day-date then it is a brilliant price, almost too good to be true.

Look on Chrono24 and compare.

What are the best options up to £1.5k - probably going to go for a Max Bill, but anything else similar style I should be considering in that budget?

That is a good choice. Besides that, you could always go down the vintage pilot's watch route, but you need to know what you're buying as restorations can cost a lot.
