  1. this video was exactly what i was looking for. i have bigger wrists so i never had issues with dive watches in general but my best friend not so much and I know that he would love to get one that wouldnt look dumb on his small wrists. I wanted to get him one as a birthday gift and this video just saved me a lot of time and research. Greatly appreciated.

  2. This is probably the best list on this subject! Really appreciate you focusing on realistically affordable watches🙌🏽

    i’m super curious about islander watches though. Maybe you could review the ISL-63? On paper, it looks like a great dive watch for smaller wrists!

  3. The Long Island watch company makes incredibly good watches. I own two I only own two because they're small and I like larger watches. These are the best watches you can get under $1,000 they average about $3 00 they are built with very high quality. Sapphire crystals sapphire bezel inserts. Bracelets are better than any Seiko bracelet. Best watch for a small wrist person.

  4. I have fairly average wrists (between 7-7.5") but still feel like these big watches with fatty metal bracelets look silly on me. Gotta be Arnold to wear half the really cool watches these days. And I like some of luminox's watches but they jack up the price to play to the tacticool crowd and I see them in gun shops all over. If they would get their prices in line and actually deliver on the bright tritium inserts I'd be all over one of their field watches.

  5. Very well curated, Ben! I like the unique case depth and look of the Marathon divers…very unique and cool!. However, the best find of this video for holiday giving is the Lorus Sports RRX89FX9…for a "cheap" watch it still looks very sharp and could be a fun gift for kids and adults alike!

  6. Ben,
    I love solar divers. You get the accuracy of quartz but don't have to worry about breaching the seals every year or so. I don't trust my local jewelers to maintain and test water resistance and sending the watch back to the makers every year or so is expensive and annoying. My Seiko's Kinetic diver has gone 12 years and I think it might just now need a new capacitor. My god it is heavy though.

  7. I applaud the efforts of you and other watch youtubers focusing on smaller sports watches, though I would suggest most of these watches aren't actually small at all. Just small compared to the Brobdingnagian sized sports watches of a few years ago, the effects of which filtered down to the mainstream over the years.
    It isn't just people with smaller wrists that benefit from these videos. Anyone with wrists smaller than 8", or put in layman's terms, someone not currently playing professional basketball or (American) football.
    To be sure, we are not going back to the days of 32 or 33 mm watches for men, but at least, we can have a happy medium where a full size watch is around 36 to 38 mm, a sports watch is between 38 and 42 mm, and anything larger than that is oversized.

  8. For anyone looking for a 36mm bronze diver with a 43mm lug-to-lug, check out the Dificiano Barracuda. It's a pretty sweet little watch, and the company will give you a discount if you ask them for it.

  9. Large watches are the bane of my life – so I just bought a Lorus blue dial RRS59FX3 child's diver with 50mtrs WR, 35mm diameter with a rotating bezel, comes with a 20mm black NATO strap which I will quickly change out for much more colourful one. I have a Vostok Scuba Dude and although I love its Russian rugged industrial vibe, it is simply too big for me. I only sea swim rather than diving so 50mtrs should be fine. Good price too for the Lorus, £16 from Ebay.

  10. The San Martin SN 004 can be fitted with female end links sold by the same company. They make the effective lug to lug less than 44mm. The female end links cost me 12 Australian dollars.

  11. Another option that might be interesting, is the Apeks professional dive watch (female)

    It may not be a well-known watch brand, but for actual diving they've got a great reputation.
    The female model has 33mm diameter, 10mm depth on a 16mm strap.
    The male model is a more standard size at 41/10.5/20mm
    seiko VX42 quarz, 200m water resistance

    The look does not seem an immediate copy of someone else, (at least that I can place) while being very much a diver.

    Price-wise, they come in at about 150 euro or about 120GBP

  12. Thanks for the comprehensive list. I have a few of the models, and especially fancy the 38mm Islander SKX013 style. Found some unknown to me models, that Ill have to go check out 🙂

  13. You can order a female end links for the San Martin from their official site now. And yes, Ben, those so call Tritium tubes are definitely just a gimmick, even Ball watches are pretty dismal and useless……

  14. You can definitely grow your wrist by working out or doing a lot of boxing…. You can grow at least another half an inch easily by just working out with your wrist, forearms and boxing…..
