    Help on picking a crazy 70s style watch

    Trying to find something that has and aquadive model 50 style, bigger than 44mm and under $300. Basically something that'll stand out.

    Thanks

    You don't need size to stand out.

    70s watches where tiny btw.
    Money can't buy you happiness. But it can buy watches.

    I have 8.5" wrists, small doesn't look to good. It's more of the style that I'm looking for. So far I'm liking the Orient jumbo diver

    Not sure if this is along the lines of what you have in mind, but it's got a similar vibe. The Seiko Recraft series...many colors/variations available and might look good on mesh. Certainly has a 70's feel (to me at least) and can be found for under $150. The only drawback is it comes in at 44mm....

    That's pretty close to what I'm looking for

    Another option for a cheapish non-diver is Orient's Neo70 lineup.

    The Helburg CH6 is a little more than your budget used but has that 70's look of a Scubapro 500 and its 45mm. I own one and it has a very masculine vintage look.

    Bulky, chunky funky watch styles with colorful dials were popular.

    The Seiko recraft is a killer watch. I have the green dial version and really enjoy it.
