« Terrestrial Radio Is Romantic, But . . . | Main | On Balance, Citizen Is Making the Most Appealing Watches Out There »

June 30, 2014



Love it. This watch is the definition of "Herculodgian," so well done buying a watch that is "so you."

I agree about Citizen - lots of good watches for a great price-point and not to be over-looked. For $200-600 it is hard to beat them.


You know I have a thing for prominent crowns/pushers on my watches. No shortage of those on this beauty. Gotta love the "deep dish" dial treatment too. Any lume testing to report on yet?

I have one on the way !!!!

I hope I'm happy with it


I have read a lot of reviews that say that this watch's only purpose is that of a "tool dive watch" and only useful for scuba diving and not as a wrist watch due to its size, industrial look, and complexity.

I disagree. I think the whole purpose of the gadget-centric Promaster line, be it the Aqualand, Altichron, or Nighthawk, is taking watch design to an extreme level of design, and mechanical engineering. Citizen pushes the limits of gizmo and garish and challenges people to wear it if they dare.

In a way it's serious engineering crossed with industrial art and design that you can wear, and as bonus it has some serious capabilities if one chose to use them.

On the contrary, I don't think this watch is just for divers.

I think this watch is made for people anyone who truly appreciates the capabilities of modern watch design and what analog quartz technology can do that no $8000 automatic Swiss luxury watch design house could ever imagine.

You don't need to be a deep sea diver to love this watch, you don't need to be Bear Gryllis to sport an Altichron, nor a Navy Fighter Pilot to appreciate a Nighthawk. I think the Citizen gadget watches, particularly the Promaster line, is about pushing the boundaries of analog quartz technology and their capabilities.


Nice watch. Good wrist presence. I just wish it had sapphire, not mineral crystal.
