List of Casio watch measurements
I keep a document on my computer of Casio watch measurements for reference, as this helps to compare models both for current and future production models. I then thought this list would probably be useful to some people, so here it is.
The most important measurement for each below is the lug-to-lug width. Casio, thankfully, does release this information - but not on the USA web site for some strange reason. For several of these I had to dig around the internet just to find the measurement specifications.
This list is ordered from longest to shortest lug-to-lug. Each measurement below is lug-to-lug first, case diameter second, thickness third.
Obviously, this is not a list of every Casio model ever made because that list would be gigantic. But it does list the more popular models including some from G-SHOCK, including a few that are no longer in production.

Certain models that fit best for most wrists
If shopping around for the best fitting Casio watch, here are a few models to pay attention to in particular.
Best fitting G-SHOCK square
The go-to model for most people is the DW5600. I suggest against this and to go with the G5600 or GWM5610 instead. The DW5600 measures at 48.9 x 42.8 x 13.40mm while the G5600 and GWM5610 measure at 46.7 x 43.2 x 12.77mm. The smaller G5600/GWM5610, while slightly wider than the DW is thinner and has less wrist overhang. Yes, it costs more but fits the wrist much better whether your wrist is small or large.
The main difference between the G5600 and GWM5610 is that the 5610 has atomic timekeeping. Otherwise, both are the same and solar powered (meaning in theory, the battery can last 15 to 20 years as long as the watch isn't in complete darkness for long periods of time.)
Best fitting, best looking model that's cheap, tough and readable
Model W218H. The 218 gets it just right where cheap + tough + readable is concerned. It has 50M water resist so you can shower and swim with it. The battery will last 5 to 7 years. Several colors available. Looks good for what it is. Very wrist-friendly whether skinny or large. Very easy to read. It's basically an F91W that's bigger, tougher and with a much better night light.
I can honestly say the W218H is an "everybody" watch. Good for kids, adults, seniors, everybody.
Cheapest tough solar that fits well
Model WS210H. This has a tide graph on it, but the big sell of this one is the solar rechargeable battery in a case size that isn't gigantic.
Most solar power watch models from Casio are too big and/or too expensive. The WS210H is one of the very few (if not the only) affordable solar models with a lug-to-lug that is only 45.4mm. While the case diameter sounds huge at 44mm, believe me, it's not. The actual LCD isn't that big. This is a "tough" model, so the case was fattened up and that's where the 44mm case diameter comes from. It's not goofy-big. And again, it's the lug-to-lug of 45.4mm that makes this fit so nicely on so many wrists. It's also nice that the buttons are big and easy to press.
Like the solar G-SHOCKs mentioned above, the WS210H can also in theory have a battery that will last 15 to 20 years as long as it's not kept in total darkness for long periods of time.
Best fitting Casio square that's not a G-SHOCK
Model AE1200. If you like square but want it cheap and feature-packed, AE1200 is what you want.
This model is a fan favorite and one of the most mod-friendly Casio watches ever made. But even if you have no intention of modding it, the plain black AE1200 looks right, has one of the best amber dual-bulb night lights (arguably even better than EL,) and while the day-date display is small, the time display uses big, thick digits for easy readability. The 45mm lug-to-lug width ensures this fits almost any wrist, and the 42mm case size is one many consider "just right" for a square.
