    Ladies Dive Watch recommendation

    Can anyone recommend a good dive watch for ladies? Nothing too expensive but def something of quality and that can be an heirloom

    Modern or vintage doesn't really matter. Thanks!! Budget under $500 but the cheaper the better of course lol

    If I was a lady I would be looking very hard at the Oris Aquis ladies watches.

    Under $500 for a ladies specific dive watch that isn’t quartz is going to be hard. The SKX 013 is always a winner in my book. Perhaps a microbrand. Traska Freediver in mint green is pretty feminine and is very wearable at 40mm. Lorier makes some 38 mm or less divers too I believe but they may be slightly over $500.

    Not sure of their quality because I do not own any of them but Deep Blue has a couple of styles of ladies dive watches.
    Some of their models look to use a Swiss quartz movement and look to be in your price range.
    You have to scroll almost to the bottom of the page to find the link to the woman's dive watch category.

    I wouldn't say anything under $500 could become an heirloom watch. But that's just my opinion.

    For your price range, you are going to have to get a Seiko for a quality piece.

    Seiko SKX013 is 37mm and $300 on Amazon

    Otherwise you might be able to pick up a ChrisWard Trident at 38mm under $500

    Check on Elady they have Omega Seamaster watches for women just slightly above your price range ($590 - $700). They are usually quartz but quality nonetheless. Bernhardt has some very nice women's dive watches. Most women's dive watches I have seen tend to be quartz.

    The SKX013 is way too big and chunky on my wife’s 5” wrist and she won’t wear it.

    Depending on the size of wrist, a 38mm diver might be a bit bulky on a woman unless she likes a slightly larger or heavier watch.

    Tag makes some smaller versions of the Aquaracer for ladies. 35 and 32mm. They are quartz and you'd be looking used since, even at the grey market, they about double the target budget.

    How about a Longines Heritage Diver in 36mm for ladies?

    Nearly double your budget at MSRP but you can bargain to get it close to your budget.
