    About to buy a Prospex Padi SRPA21

    Hi!

    New to the forum, kinda new to this whole collecting watches thing also. I'll hope my stay will be permanent.

    Anyways, as the title goes; I am probably going to buy a Prospex PADI SRPA21K1, maybe the japanese variant if I can find it localy. (Not willing to pay import taxes, I'm a swedish person and you know our taxes are through the roof )

    So the only thing I have in mind is if the watch will be too big for my wrists?

    It's quite a hefty watch, at 45mm. My wrists are 17 cm or 6.7 inches.

    Anyone else with "disney princess" wrists, who own the watch and can give me an idea, maybe even an wristshot regarding the fit on the wrist.

    Thanks from me!

    Have you checked the mini turtles?

    Welcome aboard! nice choice, should be ok with with a nato or rubber, will feel a lot bigger on bracelet imo.

    Check out the main turtle thread here, lots of guys wearing them with wrists your size.

    Check the lug to lug distance on the turtle and the distance of the flat of the top of your wrist from side to side.
    If the L2L is under the size of your wrist you are good to go.

    lug to lug is 48mm on the prospex turtle.

    I think I have 17.5 cm wrists.

    You have nothing to worry about, don't be fooled by the large diameter, it wears as a much smaller watch

    I have similar wrist size and the turtle and skx looks about the same size when worn.
