    Anything like an MM300, but in a woman's size?

    So, my mom took a close look at my MM300, and I geeked out about the monocoque case, and the clever helium escape mechanism, and the ratcheting clasp, and she really liked it. Of course, my petite mother doesn't have the wrist to pull off the MM300's size, but she would like a watch like it.

    Any ideas? I would think less than 37mm or so, but no smaller than 34mm. I'd prefer it to be Seiko, but I'm open. Price doesn't really matter.

    I don't know if it's quite what you're after, but Citizen do an eco drive diver with a monocoque case which is 38mm. It's the BN0000-04H

    Thanks wmw, but she won't go for a Citizen for the same reason I won't go for a Citizen (my dad's choice of watch).

    Ah, nuff said.
    In that case Seiko do the SKX013 which is 38mm (and which I'm wearing on my lady sized wrists right now).


    Or you could go for a midsize Seamaster


    Alternatively I'm sure Victorinox and Tag do ladies divers.

    Do you know the weight of the SKX013? That was my thought as well, once I found the model number. But I think it weighs 120 grams and her Aquaracer is 110 grams and she's a little worried about the weight.

    It's 38mm, quite thick though

    That'll teach him to say price doesn't really matter

    Well, she is adamant on a Seiko. After this, she wants to get a Seamaster 300M in a year or two. But it looks like she's going to go with the SKX013.
