Jason, if you're looking for somthing different than the Diver or Speedway I would suggest the Lupah. You don't have to hunt too hard to find them for less than $150. I just paid $104 for a Lupah Dragon Chronograph on sale.
That is exactly what I was planning on collecting next.........except when I went looking at the sizes - they were not in my range. The baby lupahs were too small with a 16mm band, and the next size was the standard lupah with a 24mm band - they only get bigger from there. I have found I really need something in the 18-20mm range....maybe 22mm at the most. I did find one oversized womens diver lupah (round) with a 20mm band, but only 1 model.......Jason, if you're looking for somthing different than the Diver or Speedway I would suggest the Lupah.

Thanks for the suggestion; I haven't looked at the Vortice before. I'll go check them out right now.Hey Jason586, have you checked out the Vortice. They have a smaller diameter with the look of a Lupah. They also have the big date which I love. I wear mine quite a bit and they come in a wide variety of dial colors and straps. Great looking watch and I get compliments all the time.
Hey Jason586,The only Vortices I could find were the same size as the standard (or smallest) lupah with a 24mm strap. Did I miss some??
The only lupah I could ever find in the 18-22mm range was the womens lupah diver chronograph which has a 20mm strap which is the same as my sapphire divers and speedways. The only problems is there is very little variance between the models with nothing in a goldtone at all that I could find.
Thanks JAS1125! :thumbup1:Jason:
I highly recommend the Abyss Pro Divers...price is good and a nice variant on the series....lots to choose from too.
I'm 5'8" as well and weigh about 135lbs.Hey Jason586,
The Vortice line for sure has a smaller diameter than the Lupah but the straps are about the same size. If you are worried about the size of strap then the Vortice won't work for you but I can say again that the diameter of the Vortice is smaller compared to the Lupah, I have both, I really don't think you would be unhappy with that watch, a friend of mine is only 5'8" and weighs 155 lbs and he has a Vortice and he absolutely loves it. If that doesn't work for you I am not sure what else I can suggest.
