    Seadweller 126600 height?

    I am thinking of buying a 126600. Is it the same height as the 16600? I have looked all over the web, but can't get a clear answer. If anyone has both and can compare and let me know I would appreciate it.

    Thanks

    It's not particularly tall in my experience but because the watch is 43mm it carries more wrist presence and depending on your wrist size along with the overall size of your hand it might make the watch appear to sit higher if you're on the smaller side.

    I've often said that you can absolutely get away wearing it on a wrist as small as 6.5". Here's a comparison with a submariner ceramic. I have 6.5" for reference. You can see the depth difference

    Although I’ve never tried on or even seen a 126600 SD43, I did save comparative pictures of my 116600 SD4K and my 114060 SubC, the SubC having the exact same dimensions as MeiXiang’s 116613 TT Submariner. Although my wrist is 7”, I wear my watches behind the prominence of my wrist bone where the measurement is 6.5”.

    Like MeiXiang I suspect I would also be able to wear a 126600 SD43 because of its ideal dimensions of thickness/diameter, likely better proportioned than my SD4K. Although I sold my SubC not too long ago, I still have my SD4K with no plans to sell. I will say when I rotated my SD4K and SubC, I could discern little, if any, difference between the two in the way in which each one wore on my wrist.

    Since the OP wanted a comparison between a 116600 and 126600, perhaps he can use my information coupled with that of MeiXiang as the dimensions of our scrawny wrists are similar!

    At that thickness, try it on before you buy. If you can't find a 16600, you can look at Omega ADs for a 39.5mm Planet Ocean, which will be a similar thickness.

    Personally for me 14.6 would probably be too thick; my Planet Ocean is 14.2 and that's the thickest I can comfortably wear on my 7" wrist.

    I tried a PO 8500 at 15.something mm and it was laughably huge. Made choosing the 2201.50 even easier; the looks already had me sold.

    I have been wearing a 16600 for the past couple of years, and have no problem with the height, but I would like to get a new diver and since I have an 8" wrist, the 43" SD is on my list. Local AD called to tell me they have one, but didn't get in to try it on before they closed the showroom, so now I am trying to figure out how it would wear, and I keep thinking about it. That wrist shots were very helpful. Thanks for the responses.

    I have the SD43 and it wears great as my daily on my 7.75” wrist.

    I previously had a 45.5 mm Planet Ocean 8500, so the downsize feels much more appropriate and comfortable for me.

    How is this post relevant on a Rolex thread asking about thickness between 2 models of Rolex?

    The watch wears big compared to 40’s that’s for sure. Height wise I wouldn’t be too concerned. It’s more about if your wrist suits the size. It also depends on where you wear your watches. The bigger Rolex divers do feel heavy to those that wear them over the wrist knuckle toward the hand or wear them loose. I’ve worn a 16600 and it can seem tall due to being 40 and thick whereas the 43 spreads that thickness a little.
