After purchasing a few G Shocks I have a new found fascination with automatic watches, namely seiko dive watches. I am looking for an everyday beater that keeps reasonable time and looks very much like the skx007/779/171 type watches.
Why don't I just buy one of those ? That's the problem. I tried on the sxk171 the other day and although I really loved the look and the old school dive watch design, it was just too small. Last night at costco I happen to come across the 007k2 and again I really liked the look of the watch but was disappointed with the size.
I really do like the way these watches look aesthetically but sizing is the issue. My wrist measures at just over 7". Big yes but proportionate.
I fell in love with the look of the seiko green dial and black face. Hence why I am very disappointed.
I am open to suggestions and whilst I do prefer seiko I am open to suggestions as far as other manufacturers go.
I will add I have a Blumo on its way but that will not be an everyday watch.
Here is how my wrist looks with a supposed 47mm watch
Excuse the ipad pictures as they are not the best quality
