  • Tempting ….I have 2 of the kamasu with saphire glass

    thks bought this one with the stainless band.

    • Personally, I like the style but mineral crystal is a no from me. Particularly on a black faced watch.

      • Is sapphire really that much better? Obv it's more scratch resistant but does it look better? I'm interested to know from someone who's worn the same watch with the different crystals.
        I like this one but also the Casio ones tbh (even though it's quartz) just for that classic diver watch profile at least until I am ready to drop decent money on an Omega or Rolex (one day)

        I've been wearing this Citizen diver watch which has a black face and mineral glass for 3+ years and haven't had any scratches so far.

    44mm…thats massive

      You must be tiny. I have small wrist but 44mm looks fine on me.

        Then you must not know watches

          I see shit loads Asian wearing Gshocks. Their wrist are tiny and it looks fine on them. 44mm is not so bad.

      • Whether you enjoy the look of that size or not is entirely subjective, but 44mm is objectively a big watch.

    • +2

      In my experience, it's almost the standard…
      I have a 16cm wrist and almost every watch out there floats around the 42-45mm bezel mark.

    • lug to lug matters more than case size — wearing a 46.7mm seiko tuna on my 6.1 inch wrist. its very short lugs make it wear smaller than specs suggest.

    • It might wear smaller than it really is with the rotating bezel. That's what I find with most divers.

  • It's about individual's wrist width and wrist thickness. It gives the whole look and feel how the watch sits. Wider wrist width can get away with bigger diameter and lug.

    The one with the red bezel (out of stock) looks surprisingly nice in the photo but I suspect in the sun it would be a lot brighter/shinier. I usually don't like red bezel but that ones caught my eye gonna have to do some research and see what it looks like in real life. $145 is a steal if they restock at that price.

  • Great price, love the design. If was just a smaller case I'd buy, I have too many divers around this size now.

  • i think people focus too much on size in mm rather than the curvature which makes it wearable. my seamaster is 41mm but wears small because of the curvature and rounded edges and scalloped bezel …..also some of these silicon bands can make a watch feel large vs stainless band or a nato strap which are lower profile……
    same with a coined edge around a bezel vs scalloped edge …. and wearing in summer with short sleeves or winter with long sleeves …. with the price of some deals you can consider a dress watch , a small diver for winter and large for summer …..love wearing large divers with short sleeves in summer.

    i do hate how coined edge divers wear out the cuffs on long sleeved business shirts.

    • People focus on bezel size because it's impossible to tell how something sits/wears unless you're literally wearing one. Lug to Lug measurement is rare to non-existent, let alone getting some way of describing how scalloped the case or lugs are :S

      • photos from various angles help, as well as youtube reviews ;)
