Over the past few years, I have been through a bunch of dive watches, from Seiko 007s to Rolex Subs. I ultimately flip because they just don't feel good. Well, I finally figured it out. I have arthritis in my wrists that affects my wrist bones. Anything that sits on, or constantly bumps the bones irritates over time. I have discovered that lighter watches with L-2-L of 44mm to 45mm sit perfectly and don't irritate my wrist bones.
So, I need your help. I'm looking for a diver with the following specs:
1. Unidirectional bezel,
2. L-2-L no more than 45mm
3. I have a 7.25" wrist, so I can't go too small. 39mm to 41mm looks perfect on my wrist.
4. No more than around 13mm thick.
5. Light - titanium would be great.
6. Under $3,000
I had a Grand Seiko SBGN003 (see below pic) that was perfect except it didn't have a rotating bezel. If it did, I would not have sold. It had a 39mm case, 12mm thick, and L-2-L was 45mm.
Any watches you can think of that have a similar appearance as the GS but with a rotating bezel?
