    Thin quartz perpetual calendar watches (do they exist?)

    There are a fair number of good and affordable quartz perpetual calendar watches, but all the ones I've been able to find seem to be large, heavy, and thick. Does anyone know of a decent perpetual calendar watch on the thin side (< 10mm case thickness, 40mm or less case diameter), preferably $200 or under? Hopefully with a leather band (or a metal band with a standard lug design so I can easily swap it.)

    10mm thick and ridiculously cheap on Amazon at the moment.

    Try searching both Google and Ebay for Seiko Perpetual Calendar and Citizen Perpetual Calendar. I think you will find several new although discontinued watches for sale some of which should meet your criteria.

    I have a quartz PC, the Citizen BL5400-52A, and it's certainly not a small watch. I believe it's 46mm.

    Casio's Oceanus line does a good job with this too. In fact, at 9mm the Manta line is billed as the world's thinnest solar-powered chronograph. I tend to wear 35mm - 40mm watches and am fine with the size as well.
