    THE, Unofficial Mid Size Diver Catalog/Roundup! With Pics 40mm and under

    As I'm sure has happened to many of us, I bought my first dive watch, decided it was awesome, and then immediately started searching for what would be my next diver. However with 6.25" wrists I generally want to keep it 40mm and under. In this day and age that is a very limiting factor when it comes to dive watches. So I slowly built up a list as I generally go a full year between watch purchases. Figured I'd share it here. This list is mostly in the affordable category as thats where I tend to reside :). Of course please reply with any good ones that I have missed and please post up your own pics and tiny wrist shots if you own any of these. I'm looking quartz right now and I was pretty sure I had decided on the Precista PRS18-Q but I just found that 38mm Victorinox that I think is pretty awesome. Anyway here is the list, all pics stolen. And by the way, No, I do not happen to know the lug to lug length on any of these watches, feel free to research on your own.

    Very nice.

    I have the auto Dive Master 500 and really like it. Lots to choose from.

    Hard to find but worth it if you can track it down. Seiko SRP189, 36mm, hacking 4r36 movement, white bezel, silver face.

    On my wife's 5.75" wrist.

    My sif nart is 40 mm no bezel but it's used by the North Sea rescue service and is 1000mts so I guess that's a dive watch

    I'm dying to see that 50 fathoms is the flesh. I get the feeling it will wear VERY small, but it's certainly eye catching. The brown version made for Deployant looks fantastic.

    The Ticino Sea Viper is listed as 40mm without crown, but it checks 39.17mm on my digital calipers. Miyota 9015 automatic and domed sapphire crystal.

    Bezel diameter...39.17mm
    Lug to lug distance...47.5mm
    Height...14.5mm
    Lug width...20mm

    (on my 7 1/4 inch wrist)

    Davosa Ternos, 40mm, lug to lug 48mm on a 6.5" wrist.

    And I know you stated 40mm and under, but just for comparison purposes on a small wrist: Squale 30 Atmos, 42mm, lug to lug 50.5 with my calipers, on a 6.5" wrist; I think it fits just fine for a "bigger watch".
