    Sub 40mm thin dive watch 200m?

    I’m looking for a sub 40mm dive watch that is relatively thin and at least 200m water resistance. So far my top choice is the Islander 38. Anybody have any other suggestions before I pull the trigger on it? Thanks in advance to any replies 🙂

    Any of the NTH subs line. 11.5mm thick and 300m WR. I have the Barracuda Black Gilt version and it is great.

    I'll second that... but only if he's ok with a straight 40mm... I personally can't pull off a 38mm, so even though I love my NTHs(Tikuna and Nazario Sauro), they're right on the lower size threshold. Cant wait for Doc to drop the XL Subs, hopefully late this year.

    If the budget is higher I'd go with Seiko SLA017. I think it squeaks by with a touch under 40mm.

    Orient ray is 41.5mm in diameter, however wears smaller due to the relatively short 47mm lug to lug length. Citizen Excalibur (BN0100-51E) is 41mm in diameter and wears large due to 49mm lug to lug length.

    A quartz diver will typically be much thinner than an automatic. The Islander 38mm is basically the same dimensions as a Seiko SKX013 (13mm thick, 38mm diameter and 45mm lug to lug length). It feels kind of stubby on the wrist. It’s wearable but certainly not thin.
