    Sub-9.5mm thick, >100m WR, mechanical dive style watch

    What are some at least 100m water resistant mechanical dive style watches that are under 9.5mm thick?

    Thanks

    Do you have any idea how slim 9.5mm is? Even the thin AF Oris 65 is over 12mm thick.

    The Rado Captain Cook is 11.1mm thick and the Helson Shark Diver 38mm is 11.4mm.
    Those are the thinness dive watches I can think of

    The Monta Triumph is about 9.5mm thick with 150m water resistant, and is the thinnest watch above 100m water resistance I can think of, and definitely a not a dive watch

    A Nomos Club neomatik is 9.3mm thick and rated to 20ATM. Just to point out how insane your requirements are.

    Lucky to find Quartz diver that thin. My Carrera is rated 100 ft but it isn't 9.5mm thin

    None. I'm gonna say good luck with your search.

    You need to realize the crystal alone on a 100M diver is 2.5-3mm thick. Thickness of the caseback is probably 1-1.5mm. That's not leaving a lot of wiggle room for the movement let alone a movement with a rotor

    9.5mm is incredibly thin. I think my 9F quartz GS is 9.5mm and I think the thinnest watch I own.

    I remember someone mentioning the Orion Calamity as one of the thinnest dive watches on the market at 11.3mm

    Oh come off it. The Sinn 809 aut is 9.5mm thick automatic diver rated to 200m WR.

    I'm not asking for the impossible.

    I don't think you're going to find a mechanical dive watch at x < 9.5mm. My Glycine Combat Sub (~$300 at Costco) is 10.6 mm. It's pretty thin compared to most dive watches that I've seen.

    Edit: SKX007 on the left and Glycine Combat Sub 42 on the right.
