Here’s a Citizen diver that I bought just lately. This watch was first launched in Japan and was subsequently made accessible in different elements of the world. It was introduced by Citizen Singapore in January 2022 and launched in February 2022. The distinction between the mannequin offered in Singapore and the Japan mannequin is that it has English/Chinese language as an alternative of English/Kanji day wheel.

This watch has a diameter of 41mm (excluding crown) and lug width of 20mm. Thickness is 13.7mm which is a bit on the thick aspect however not a deal breaker for me. Seiko King Turtle and 62MAS (6R model) are each 13.2mm thick in keeping with the specs listed on their web site.

The watch is powered by the Miyota 8204 motion which comes with hack and handwind options. I do know this isn’t Citizen’s premium automated motion just like the 9051 however that is solely an entry degree diver as mirrored by its value. It’s fitted with a mineral glass crystal which is to be anticipated of an entry degree diver.

The watch has brushed ending throughout, from the highest of the case to the edges and the caseback. The 60-click bezel has polished ending and has gold plating on it.

Listed below are the the explanation why I bought this watch:

  • The 41mm diameter fits my present desire. It is rather wearable in comparison with different divers that I’ve owned earlier than together with the Autozilla.
  • It’s automated and has a standard dive watch design. The gilt dial may be very legible and provides the watch a classic really feel.
  • It’s a 200m ISO licensed dive watch.

The watch comes with a pleasant steel bracelet however I’m not a bracelet person and so I’m sporting it on the ballistic nylon Zulu strap from This strap is gentle but sturdy sufficient to assist the burden of the watch. It comes with thick rings that match the heft of the watch case.

You’ll be able to see some photos of the unique steel bracelet on the finish of this submit. It’s fairly properly made with stable finish hyperlinks and a pleasant folding clasp. It even has a ratcheting diver extension with push button launch.
