This watch was given to my father-in-law as a gift, but he doesn't wear it and thinks it's too big so he asked me to see if there's someone out there who might like it.

I only collect (smaller) vintage watches, so forgive me if my description of this one is missing anything pertinent as this is a bit of a departure for me!
Anyway, this is a Jacques Lemans dive watch. It is quartz, and a fresh battery was just installed. It is 44mm wide (48mm with crown) so very hefty on the wrist. Lug-to-lug is 54mm. It's about 13mm thick. The clicky diver bezel turns counter-clockwise only. The crown is a screw-down crown, the date is quickset. The dial is black but with a subtle texture. The watch is very legible and keeps good time.
The model number is G-194. It has a sapphire crystal, is water resistant to 20 ATM, and is all-stainless steel (bezel might be another metal or coated).
This is very solid and heavy watch, and feels well-made. The bracelet would fit a 7 1/2" maybe even 8" inch wrist (or less if you removed links). It's in excellent condition, just a few small wear marks on the bracelet, a small scratch on the bezel, and a tiny mark on the crown guard. These macro shots make them appear worse than they really are.
I'm asking $175 or reasonable offer. This would ship from Chicago within the USA. I will ship further afield, but please let me know first as there will be some extra shipping costs. PayPal only, please.
No box, no papers, no trade requests! I have good feedback here on WUS as both a buyer and seller, as well as on reddit and on Instagram, so just ask!
Thanks for reading, here are the pics...
