As far as I know, CWC only have two versions of diver's watches, both of wihich are around 40-41mm across. I used to have one and it was fine on my 7 inch wrist. I'm not sure how much smaller you could go though, in terms of wrist size.

Later,

The CWC doesn't wear all that large because the dial is unusually small for a watch of that size and it's not very tall.

Consider a Vostok Amphibia if you want a smaller divers watch. Mine's only 38mm.

Do a search here on the forum for the terms "amphibia" and "amphibian". That will get you a good start. :)

Here are mine. Old and new. Solidly built USSR and Russian watches and cheap enough that you will want more than one. I wouldn't recommend diving in an old one unless the seals have been replaced.

And the CWC for comparison, which is a great watch, but it can cost 10 times as much!

I feel a bit frustrated as I would have bought a watch today but I too don't have enough posts :(

Keep going lad only 40 more posts to go !!!

Am even further behind than you....

In any case you will make some good descisions when you have the fifty

what i thought at first was a good watch from ebay .... is now I realise perhaps really NOT that

good so knowing about what is the fair price is important

The Amphibia is a great watch; I have been down to 25 meters with one, SWMBO, who is much braver than me, has taken one of mine down to 65m. without issues.

This from a ten year old watch, never serviced, which I am wearing today.

And when you buy something else, there's a ready market for used Amphibias!

Love 'em!

New old stock, probably the 'bay, used; here and the 'bay.

Do an ebay search for 'Amphibia'... lots!
