Wow. This looks really nice, Jeff. The gunmetal color is wonderful in the sunlit photos. I'm glad the light weight of the titanium case and bracelet is acceptable to you.

Looks great, Jeff. I especially love the bracelet which reminds me of the Omega Speedmaster bracelet on my black dial Seamaster.

Looks like a true keeper.

As or the weight, how would you compare it to, say, the Black Monster?

This is much lighter than my Black Monster, but what's curious is that as light as it is--and I can barely feel it on my wrist--it does not feel cheap at all.

Good to hear. I feel that I can rest easy, knowing that this watch has served its purpose and completely satiated you.

Now the question is, how long can you hold out before buying the silver metal version? And, if so, would you go for the steel version or the silver titanium?

Gary

According to what I've found on the web, the Black Monster weighs about 180 grams and the Promaster Sky weighs about 110 grams.

Did you ever find out if the crown is supposed to tighten or if the manual is wrong? That seems important. The watch is really nice----and I agree that the "not quite black" gunmetal is excellent.

The two Citizens I have don't have tightening crowns - most non-divers don't, as far as I can tell.

Gary

I have three Citizen Eco-Drive watches. Only the diver has a screw-down crown. The Blue Angels World Chrono, a fellow radio-controlled relative of the Promaster Sky, does not.

Matt at Watch City confirmed that the watch crown is not screw-down. Funny, though, it's waterproof to 200 meters. I won't swim with it though. I'd be open to getting a SS or titanium down the road. No rush. I don't see the SS version on eBay. Too bad since it would be cheaper.

Gary

My Blue Angels watch is rated for 200m also.

Regarding the Promaster Sky, I prefer the black background on the timezone wheel and date wheel of the titanium versions (BY0084-56E and BY0080-57E) to the white background of the stainless version (BY0085-53E).

My Citizen diver is 200m and doesn't have screw-down. When I first got it I thought it was damaged.
