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,
William

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!

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
