Oh come now Murph are you realy going to try to share that little boat with Ken. LOL :D

This baby needs to be at least 44mm if not 45mm or 46mm. Ken just needs to work out some. Something other than golf. hehehehehe :D:cool:

Whatcha guys waiting for? Start working out now mates!

Dont worry guys, I have a pretty small wrist too. So they have to fit my wrist as well. But of course it will fit those 8-9" wristers too.

So 44m wide, 15m thick.

Well.....I knew Ken and I would be outvoted on the case size. I could probably live with 44mm if this is as cool of a watch as I hope it'll be, but there's no way I myself could go any bigger. I've tried on a 45mm Omega PO and it was like I was trying to compensate for something it was so largesubtlelaugh.gif.  And as far as that whole boat thing with Ken and I, It would have to be a Zodiac rubber assault craft, else there wouldn't be enough room for our gear:D.

I think a countdown bezel is a given on any dive watch :D

I think you are thinking of a count-up bezel, standard on most dive watches. They measure elapsed time
a countdown bezel measures time remaining. The 15 is in the 9 o'clock position instead of at 3. You turn the time to the minute hand, and when it reaches 0, times up. Regular bezel count up, not down, but they are not nearly as useful

I know exactly the difference between the 2...that is why I put the laughing face next to my sorta sarcastic reply after hearing you seriously say you wanted a countdown bezel on a dive watch....which is generally found on a pilots chronograph where I would agree it would be more useful ;).....I find the basic dive bezel w/15 at the 3 much more useful as far as ease of use and ledgeability....but both style bezels will perform so I guess it would be a matter of preference even though the best dive watches in the world all use the traditional count up bezelhand6.gif....btw my Abyss has the countdown bezel
