Since the OP's highest priorities for the watch are diameter, thickness, and weight (not reliability or readability), there really is only one choice:

The original full-sized Invicter Arsenal.

63mm including the crown.
17mm thick (might be too thin for OP; the SANs and Venom are taller)
385-410 grams depending on sizing.

I don't know that there ever was one made in all black, but there is one with black dial and black center links on the bracelet.

Way too fucking ginormous for me, but whatever...

Never was a fan of those. I puled the trigger earlier and went for a Boschett in all black. Thanks .

Interestingly, all-black Boschetts are the official watch of the Gay Pride movement.

Quite true. It all started when Gay men were tired of being called "limp wristed" they chose to discretely build up their arm strength by wearing all black Boschett watches. Unfortunately Larry Craig was wearing one when he was arrested. Supposedly after tapping his foot under the stall Craig asked the undercover officer if he was a "Cave Diddler" a "Rim Ranger" or just like the big black "Harpoon"

The PR dept for Boschett advises straight customers not to wear the all black model on the left wrist (the power bottom side) or the right wrist (total top) or both wrists (versatile)

The gaskets on the all-black Boschetts are also Crisco-resistant, for those heavy-fisting sessions.

That is how Mr Mink got the name for Renatoes Sporgenza watches because of the crisco seals and other cool stuff like that.

Honestly, I don't know as I haven't owned either. But I hope you enjoy your purchase.

I do like the way Boschetts look over Deep Blues, for the most part.

Boschetts vs Deep Blue is like Chinese vs Chinese, both come out slanted.

Look into some Seiko instead.

I can't stand "What should I buy?" threads - So pathetically watchgeek. Practically jumping at every suggestion means you really don't know what the fuck you want. IOW, you shouldn't be buying ANYTHING if you don't know. Being compelled to buy for the hell of it (and what someone else tells you to), is pure watchgeek. How the fuck should we know? Go do your own damn research like the rest of us. This is some troll ass geek shit if I ever saw it. Have a happy new year and go fuck yourself.

Please disclose your medical conditions so that we can pick your next timepiece. In addition, please answer the following questions so that we can laser focus our selection of your next watch:

Do you like numericals?

Will any finishes cause you to shit your pants or have a nervous tick?

How many time knobs do you need?

What engine should the watch have?

Do you like mid size watches (under 52mm)?

Do you own a Ronco Rotisserie? If so, how many chickens to you cook per week?

Would you prefer a "Swiss Mvm't" or "Swiss 0
Parts" watch?

Do you watch "The Sunday Run" with or without pants on?

Single-wide or Double-wide?

Thank you,
Your Buyers
