    Good choice in the 42-44mm range with 22mm lugs?

    Longtime member, and yes searched and searched - no clear results... I picked up a Helgray TCD-01 and really enjoying the size - I also have a Wenger chronograph around the same size. In fact I'm selling off my Deep Blue Master 1000m because it's just a touch too big, as is my SMW Q7, and Traser P6600
    I know there's a ton of Seiko / Citizen out there - but ugh - 20mm lug width. I have probably 30 Zulu, rubber and leather bands in 22mm
    looking on the cheaper end, I give away a lot of my money and just don't really spend more than a couple hundred or so per watch..

    Thanks for the suggestions!

    You're really spoiled for choice here. The suggestion above makes sense. Here's a picture of the PADI (which is outside your price range but there are other models) on both the OEM oyster and on a shark mesh I just put on it. There are several other options as well. Feel free to PM me if you need some direction.

    Thanks for the suggestion - I Love my DB and was enjoying the larger watches for awhile, but realize the weight and height are always noticeable. This Helgray is almost a bit small, but being titanium it's so light..

    Keep in mind that turtle style cases wear smaller than traditional round ones. I've had both DB & Seiko watches with equal specs but entirely different wrist feel. I still like both and size is not a concern for me but those are just my impressions.

    Right, the DB wears "big" at 44mm. Thanks for the info!

    Have to echo the Turtle recommendations. You can get the PADI for under $250 right now on Jet (fulfilled by Certified Watch Store) with code SPRING15: https://jet.com/product/detail/ac73a...7fcf4143905139
