    Which Divers have crowns at 4 o'clock?

    My left wrist is on the small side of average (6.75 inches), and I like to wear my watches on the looser side - with my hand at my side, the proximal edge of my watches' bracelets are often just distal to the radial and ulnar styloid processes (sorry about the anatomical jargon, but it's what I know and is about as accurate as I can describe how loose I wear my watches).

    I own three Seikos (007, OM and an SHC039, all on bracelets), and they all fit very comfortably due in no small part to the offset crown. I've been on the prowl for a Sumo, but is my focus too narrow? What other watches out there have have crowns in the region of 4 o'clock? The ones I know:

    Citizen: NY2300, 0040, 0054
    Doxa: 250
    Oris: TT1 Ti
    Seiko: pretty familiar with the 4 o'clockers here.
    Sinn: U1, U2, UX
    Zeno: 300 SEL

    And that's about it for my knowledge base. the WUS search engine kicks the "4" out in front of "o'clock", so searching was a little frustrating.

    If anyone can give me a recommendation over the Sumo, here's what I'm looking for:

    case ~45mm
    offset crown
    bracelet, but non-integrated or strap option.
    auto movement
    chronographs need not apply
    day/date would be nice, but not a must-have
    GMT would also be nice, but not a must-have
    clean dial aesthetic - the fewer/smaller the numbers, the better

    You can see why the Sumo is an attractive option. But I'm certainly open to suggestions.

    I didn't think this was going to turn into one of those "which watch" threads, but oh well...

    The Muhle Glashutte Nautic Timer, SAR, and Rasmus are all divers with a crown at 4, but are a touch smaller than you requested (42mm - 43mm). Also, the Oris TT1 Titan should do (44mm at base but tapers to 42mm at bezel). Hope that helps!

    Here's a thread on this very subject from last month:

    It is tough to search for stuff like "4 o'clock" - I was only able to find it because I'd posted in it myself.
    Regards,

    you beat me to it +1 on the SeaFighter, great value at under $700 new and you can customize the watch to your taste. Sorry about the crappy pic

    I have been very impressed with the way these to wear.

    I had purposefully left out numbers because I didn't want any options excluded because of price. But since you asked, a new SeaFighter would probably be at the upper end of the budget for this particular purchase.

    Now, if Bill could drop the LRRP movement into that case...I'd pony up for that combo in a heartbeat.

    How about the Halios Holotype in PVD, Beadblast, or Brushed finish?
