    Paradive vs. Blackwater

    I can't decide between the two models. I have a 6.75 inch wrist but I like to wear watches in the 42mm range. Does anyone out there own each and could you please provide some comparison pics or some advice on which model I should choose...Thanks in adavance

    MKII Blackwater + MKII Paradive.



    Hope this picture helps.

    I`m not complete happy with the photo.
    Please imagine Paradive a litle bit larger.
    I think caused by perspective it looks comparatively a bit to small.

    I like both watches very much,
    sometimes the Blackwater is my favorite, and sometimes the Paradive.

    Thanks, I can tell the Paradive is bigger. Do you have a pic with them stacked? That would really help!

    Please explain "stacked".
    Sorry I´m German.
    Do you mean " topview" ?

    I will take a picture tomorrow.

    Place the Blackwater on top of the Paradive and take a side view photo. It would give a good idea about the height and size relation of the watches. Thanks for the previous pic and if you have time to take another it would be greatly appreciated!

    FWIW, I wear a Blackwater on my 6.75" wrist and to me it is a perfect size all around... I also toyed with the idea of 'upgrading' to a Paradive but decided the extra length, width and thickness just wouldn't feel right for me... plus it still has the same 20mm lugs on that beefier frame...

    the Paradive is no doubt superior to the Blackwater in certain aspects, but at more than twice the price I'm quite happy to stick with my beloved Blackwater

    good luck with your decision... you probably can't go wrong either way

    cheers,
    Peter

    Great picture! I have a Paradive and I really like it. I like the bezel on the Blackwater - wish a bezel like that (or at least a diver's bezel) was available on the Paradive too (since the Blackwater is discontinued and nice ones are pretty rare in the pre-loved market!) The 12-hour bezel is nice on the Paradive, but I sometimes wish I had the option of a diver's bezel or a countdown/12-hour combination bezel like the Blackwater!
