    Looking for ideas - Thin Divers

    Hey guys, Recently sold my damasko and now i'm shopping again... Looking for some ideas for a diver. Figured no better place to ask than f2!

    - 40-43 mm wide (bigger is better)
    - 12-15 mm thick (thinner is better)
    - auto preferred, manual wind ok, quartz no way.
    - awesome metal bracelet
    - very down with titanium
    - sporty look with exterior bezel
    - date preferred but no date ok too - as long as it tells time :)
    - i'm no expert in depth measurements but i would say 5 atm is the minimum, 10 preferred.
    - would prefer to blow no more than $2500

    One watch comes to mind that fits 90% of that is the Longines Legend Diver -- but i own it already and love it :) Another one that is just a tad too wide is the Tutima DI 300 -- which I really like in black/yellow but it's 44mm and hard to find. The longines hydroconquest also comes to mind... What else is out there? Hit me!

    I'll throw out the Oris Aquis Date 43mm (on a bracelet) to get things rolling. Can't remember off-hand if its available in titanium, but I think it checks all your other boxes.

    Looking for ideas - Thin Divers

    Hey Dan, here are a few ideas that jumped to my mind.

    Stowa Seadiver is a great watch from a great brand. Nice and sporty,


    Tudor Pelagos is a bit on the higher end of your budget (used), but it's titanium and has a nice bracelet.


    Sinn T2 or T1 are two rock solid options in titanium from Sinn.


    Tudor black bay with th red or blue bezel is a standby at this price range.


    I love my Doxa Sub! They're great quirky divers for well within your price range (but the price varies a lot depending on the specific model)

    (No pics other than DOXA are mine- credit to where it's due!)

    Good luck, let us know what you end up with!

    The TAG Aquaracer 500M (the WAK series) is about 13mm thick, ceramic bezel looks nice the styling is not stodgy.
    Omega Speedmaster Professional (311.30.42.30.01.005) * Omega Seamaster Aqua Terra >15,000 Gauss (231.10.42.21.01.002)

    Glycine Combat Sub. 42 mm, 10 mm thick, sharply down turned lugs so it just drapes over your wrist, and comes in a variety of dial / bezel colors. And should come in well under 1000, for a while they were available new for about half that.

    Check out the new TAG Heuer Aquaracer 300M series, a very nice timepiece available in 4 dial colours.
    I think I'm going to grab one, although I already own a 500M version

    Omega SMP 2254 propaganda again, but I think its spot on; 40mm, thin, great bracelet (not the Bond, but the Speedy), date. Ok, it has less ATM then 5 or 10, but I think it is more versatile then a 5 or 10 atm dive watch which tend to be bigger or thick. And with that budget you should be able to find one, allthough not new.

    hi
    i am not expert but i have to write a few words.
    if is 5 atm water resistance then is not diver. Diver must be 20 atm or more. Second, omega 2254 i think is 30 atm which is 300m water resistance.

    check epos EPOS - Artistry in Watchmaking - Swiss Made Mechanical Watches
