Im looking for a BIG Diver. Or a nice big watch which i can wear everyday. and do with everyday activities.
Something with good wrist precense. Maybe 44mm and up. 42mm could be ok but it depends really (the helson 42mm is bigger compared to say a hamilton navy 42mm)

Since its gonna be big and more of when I need a rough watch, probably looking more at Titanium but will consider other options.

So far have been looking at the Oris Small Seconds:
64376387454RS

I don't know if this eBay seller is legit or good but that's what I've found. Other that that there is Jomashop which is also grey.

Next up, I have considered the Helson Sharkdiver (Bronze or Titanium)

I know there are some Germans out there too which are good? (Damasko/Dievas? etc. )

Just looking for some recommendations :)

Something that would be hardy, good and ready to take a good beating (if needed)

I'd grab a Deivas Vortex. 44mm and a Ti fricker case with an ETA movement. WUS is letting my upload a pic of the one I sold but google came through:

Now that is a nice watch! No date which I like.

The Seiko Sumo is 45mm with longer lugs and about a third of your budget. It's a high quality watch. I mean, the bracelet is kind of crappy and the lug holes are a little too far from the case for straps, but it's a very strong offering.

Yeah, that's sharp!
I would like to see it with different bezel styles as the black PVD (I'm assuming that's what it is) and white numbering isn't my favourite, but I could definitely live with it. Maybe a brushed titanium insert with carved markings...

Love the crown on that side as well because I like to wear a watch on my right hand. But I always want the crown to point outward. So I mostly wear watches on my left.

Edit: Just realised that the Benarus Megalodon 4 Ti is discontinued.

Here's my recommendation, a watch that I just got myself last month - the Orient Saturation Diver 300m. 45mm wide, 16.6mm thick and around 51-52mm height.

I'd go for the WCT (West Coast Time) diver with a sterile dial and Fricker case. It's a clone of the case used for the Kobold Seal for a fraction of the cost.

I'm a fan of the way Orient's 45mm Saturation Diver looks (it comes and goes on Orient USA's website for around $1000 - $1200 I think):

Maybe a used 45mm DOXA Sub like a 5000T if you want something different:
