    congrats on the new entry I was contempling one of those, not sure about the size I have already sd40 and sd42 and I do prefer the smaller version, at 599 is a bargain for sure even w/o bracelet, is it yours the bead blasted version?

    Re: helson shark diver - show us yours

    I dunno why but recently the SD has really grown on me, At first I thought they were a bit big for my 7" +- wrist. (42mm) and heavy with sharp crown, but after playing with other micros, their crowns are way worse, cough A7 cough A8 cough Benarus. Lume is excellent, super easily to dress up or down.

    I think 40mm is honestly the perfect size. after having 3 42mms. Even on full bracelet it doesn't feel too heavy, lugs are shorter which is a plus but the thing I noticed the most is the THICKNESS, it is WAY THINNER = lighter. and much easier to tuck into dress shirts. But still very tool looking, quality, QC lume is all still there. Only thing missing is no divers extension for quick adjustments.

    I think 40mm will be my ultimate daily watch.

    Yes I'm a hoarder, for SD's only. Thinking if I should keep the 42mm V1 or no........ Will be impossible to replace though.

    Hi Craig

    7" thin wrist, big hands
    Usually I use straps 125/75

    SD45 wears big on my wrist, however I get used to big watches, and wide straps. Most of my watches have 24mm wide straps, even 26mm. I feel very strange with a 20mm or 22mm wide strap, to thin for me.

    Thanks Jose, I appreciate the info. Due to the flat sitting lugs people seem to lement over the watch size pre-purchase...and I am no different. I too have a 7"-7.25" (depending on how tight I draw the tape), but it's extremely flat and therefore wide, which allows me to get away with much bigger L2L then others. Bigger hands also shrink the watch as well.

    I think it looks great on youre wrist. I hope you continue to enjoy the watch!!

    Hey AVS,

    Noticed you've got a Shark Diver in both the Aluminum and the sapphire bezels. Wondering which one you like better? Contemplating the blue which can be had in either bezel. The sapphire protects the innards of the bezel i.e.
    the lume, I realize and the aluminum could have the potential for the lume paint to chip off but they both look so
    good in small, subtle ways.
