    Confused small men's chronograph?

    I have a small wrist <5.5 inches. I am trying to find a decent men's chronograph watch that fits on my wrist without looking like I'm wearing someone else's watch. I'd like to keep the cost under $600.00US and am looking to buy a new watch. Any suggestions?

    Look for quartz chronographs (Seiko, Lotus, fashion brands). Tons on ebay.

    As posted, most of the quartz chronos are smaller.

    You might check in the Russian forum also. I have seen some smaller Russian watches with the very cool Poljot 3133 chronograph movement in that price range or less, but they are hand wind. I think there is an auto variant, but don't quote me on that.

    What size watch would fit you? 35-37 mm?

    If we knew the size, we might be able to offer some specific suggestions.

    Quartz is surely the way to go. If it must be automatic, then in order to be a thin chronograph movement you'd need to get an ETA 2894, which are generally more expensive than the Valjoux 7750 movements. I think the cheapest I've seen new are the (Discontinued?) Longines Flagship chronographs, which are a mere 11-12mm thick and about 38mm across. Bernardwatch has a 'Fred' branded watch with the 2894 as well for a fairly reasonable price for this movement. Speedmaster reduced is another option. Unfortunately none of the pieces mentioned are within your budget, sorry about this -- I was just trying to give you the automatic options conceivably within your size requirements; there should be many quartz options in your size/price range.

    My Junkers Chrono is relatively small. 40mm, and about $500. It has a russian P3133 movement.

    My favorite small chronograph is the Chronosport CS-351 65H.
    Chronosport is the company that Helmut Sinn started after leaving Sinn Spezialuhren.



    The watch measures only 37,2mm, and has a Valjoux 7760 Handwind movement inside.
    There are 2 different dials to choose from.
    Price is 595 Euro´s. (Price recently went up 100 Euro´s from 495 Euro´s)
