New Citizen Promaster Aqualand

Post by AtomicTom » Wed Feb 13, 2019 10:17 am

Have you had time to see Citizen's latest Promaster Aqualand everyone?

Seems like the new watch will actually be seen a Baselworld this year, and
will have a 47mm stainless steel case, 200m WR, mineral crystal, helium
escape valve, and pepsi blue, and red, or all red diver's bezel. Then on top
of that, you have blue, or black dials with luminous hands, and markers,
Citizen in-house EcoDrive solar quartz caliber movement with rapid ascent
alarm, auto start dive mode, maximum depth memory, and power reserve
indicator. Then it looks like the watches will come with either a stainless steel
bracelet, or black, or blue rubber strap choice also.

Some pictures for you...

I had the old 54mm one, and it was insane. 47mm and what looks like a considerable reduction in thickness is very welcome. Would love to wear that red one.

Seiya's had this cool blue-dialed LE for awhile now...

Thanks Tom for posting but man... did Citizen screw this one up. Way too complicated to do what a watch's number one job is... show the time easily.
Bigtime NO for me. :snooty:

Zach, absolutely agreed. That was the worst debacle Citizen ever produced. No clue WTF they were thinking with that.

I don't suppose these wear smaller than the specs. I love the red bezel version.

Oh neat Zach, didn't realize they already had these out like that already ! :excited: :)
That one actually does seem a little more subtle, and simple, and the blue
touches are perfect with it. ..Think that red one would be amazing on the
wrist there. ..Thanks so much too for the pic of that beauty above !

Todd, and RR, these do have a lot going on with them ! :salute: Guess they are
a little busy with all of the hands, and the power reserve, and even the
HEV, pushers, and crown. ..Am wondering if maybe they will add in another
simpler version with less hands a ways down the road maybe.

Paul, was also thinking about the size sir. :thumbsup: It says 47mm, but maybe that
is counting in the crown, pushers, and HEV. ..Without those, these might
actually be closer to 42, or 43mm which isn't as bad.

I’ve been watching these for a while. Just completed PADI open water and would love a watch with a analog depth gauge, before I start any more classes. Here’s a couple more color variations. ImageImage

How so? It's actually pretty trick. Time, 'charge level' for the solar movement, and two depth gauges: current depth (the colored arrow), and max depth (the pointy one). Gotta know the max so you can calculate proper decompression. Also has an alarm if your ascent / descent rate ever gets too fast. I've dove with the older monstrosity above, and despite being a pain in the ass to wear outta water, it was awfully cool to actually dive with.

Yup, they are pretty good. I had a JV Promaster and found it was the perfect backup dive timer.
