Nearly 19 mm in height is, in fact, more than what we usually see when reviewing watches, and the two responses we got from our readers show that we probably should have pointed this out more clearly. We do know that certain product specifications (like water resistance, movement dimensions/construction, etc.) and requirements sometimes result in increased dimensions and/or that some consumers prefer a more substantial dive watch, while others generally prefer smaller sizes. It is also interesting to see that both readers felt a diameter of 46 mm to be less remarkable than its height. We do, however, stand by our assessment that the overall look is balanced and that the watch was surprisingly comfortable on the wrist, despite its size, but as always encourage anyone interested in buying a watch to try it on at a retailer first.
