    Own the watch you want, not the one you think people want to see on your hand.

    Can't go wrong with the Prodiver Date. It's one of the best divers on the market at any price.

    The only thing I would say is 49mm is huge. You would probably need an 8" wrist for it to look right.

    YES get it. A thousand times yes. At 49 mm it is a tad large but it does truly wear a lot smaller than the specs suggest. If you are concerned about the size when you try it on then consider getting one on rubber as they tend to be a bit lighter than the bracelet. The SW200-1 movement in it is pretty good too though I must admit mine gained over 30 secs in 7 months.

    Nope.... here's a context pic of mine on my 7.25"-7.5" wrist. Short lugs help it sit nicely on the wrist, and the smallish dial (relative to the thick bezel) makes it appear smaller on the wrist.

    Slight correction KD. it IS a great watch. The thick bezel, outer rubber to the bezel and the short lugs all combine to make it wearable on my skinny 6.75" wrist.

    I must have a bigger wrist than I though, I put one on today and it feels a lot smaller than a 49mm more like a 44mm or 45mm tops, love the watch but I am not sure about the sizes.
