    Re: helson shark diver - show us yours

    If, like me, you are thinking about buying the fantastic Helson Shark Diver, but unsure of the correct size, I thought I'd take these for reference. I spent a lot of time on these forums in the lead up to purchasing researching and even then I still wasn't sure about what size to go for. I even cut out some pics and put them on my wrist to see if that would help! But even then, you dont get an idea of depth, it looks so much better in the flesh.

    I'd always recommend to anyone buying a watch to try it on, as lug-lug is by far the biggest factor in how it sits. It doesn't (with-in reason of course!) matter too much about case size, if the L2L looks right, but, unless you live near HK, or know someone who actually owns one, doing that with a Helson just isn't possible. So hopefully, if you have similar shape and size wrists, these shots will help you out.

    I have a 6.5" flat wrist, and I wear mine tight (I also wear a Garmin Visiosmart, which is the other thing you can see). I think the SD 40mm sits perfectly on my wrist, with no lug overhang at all. The design of the case is a perfect fit.

    My god she is a thing of beauty! I've owned a lot of watches, but this SD really is a stunning watch. I absolutely love it.

    I had had both sizes 42 sapphire and 40 sapphire and aluminum
    My take is if you have a 7" flat wrist you can get away with both sizes (so if you like to wear big watches get the 42 otherwise get the 40 )
    the watch looks always bigger on bracelet, the helsonfrane make much smaller imho. The aluminum version (at least to me) looks a tad bigger than the same size with sapphire inlay.The 42 has more squarish lugs, the 40 version overall has a more balanced shape less squarish not only because it is smaller but I guess there is a subtle change in the porportions, cannot confirm that though

    I generally wear 44-45 but these wear big. 42 fits just fine. If your used to 44 grab the 42. If you generally wear 42 grab the 40 is what I recommend.

    Some people said that lugs looks to big and disproportional to watch. Its maybe looks like this on the picture but in reality it's just fine.



    Its similar like watch case looks big to wrist size from the picture but its actually sits perfect. My wrist is 6.75 and its SD40.





    I like this kid a lot. And of course the lume is cool. Even small noise from rotor rotation is cool too.

    Nice looking watch vladg, I was so tempted to go with the blue, it looks great on your wrist.

    I'm currently talking to William at Helson on modifying the 22mm bracelet to fit the SD40, mainly because I want the ratcheting clasp, bit I also think the extra 1mm either side of the 22mm sized bracelet will work really well with the wide lugs.
