    I'm firm with Speedies and the bigger Seamasters but have no clue which Omega is fitting a (slim) ladies wrist. I think 28-32mm would be nice. Which Omega models/refs have this size?

    All of the vintage constellations and Seamaster dress watches look great on women especially with the beads of rice bracelets

    I have a 31.5mm Seamaster de Ville ref B6671 that fits my 6" wrist better than the 34.5mm models. I would think this size would be perfect for a ladies wrist. They usually hold a cal 670 or 671.

    There is also the Ladymatic and the Seamaster 120 that come in sub-32mm sizes.

    The quick answer would be - this one:

    I bought a similar sized one for my girlfriend, and it's an extremely pretty watch. The one I bought was gold capped.

    They come up for sale pretty often, and are very reasonably priced when looking at condition compared to "regular" sized Seamasters of the period, and wear well due to the thick lugs. My girlfriend wore her the day before yesterday at a fine restaurant, and I could compare it to the ladies' Rolex which the lady next to her wore - absolutely no contest.

    EDIT: by the way, my girlfriend has slim wrists as well, and I think that this piece suits her better than a mens' Seamaster. She's quite taken with it as well, even though owning it has made her look at my Constellation now... :cautious:


    Here's an older photo with two regular Seamasters, both now gone...

    Very much depends on the lady and her likes, not much help i'm afraid.

    Thanks @ConElPueblo, this Ref looks pretty cool. Right size and a automatic. I like the linked watch, but I have to look for a golden or gold capped watch for my wife [emoji6]

    Best of luck to you! As I said, they do seem to come up for sale pretty often :)
    ...Sometimes they are sold in listings not disclosing size. I guess some sellers try to offload the watches as larger references :(
