The Seiko SKX013 is the best dive watch for small wrists. It’s affordable, tough, and looks manly. It has a 37mm case width, yet has a lot of wrist presence.
The Seiko SKX013 is the only option worth considering if you’re in the market for an affordable small dive watch. It has a robust in-house automatic movement, it’s hefty, and it can take a beating. And because it’s a tool watch, is also has a nice and unique look.
Of course, there are other options out there but they just don’t come close to the value proposition of the SKX013 – be it from a design, movement or construction point of view.
But being affordable doesn’t mean Seiko SKX013 is cheap. Quite the contrary. This thing is thick and heavy – maybe a tiny bit too heavy. And it has found its way in many watch enthusiasts’ collections.
It’s that good.
