A selection of new and used Citizen Promaster diver’s watches available now. A choice of two movements from solar charged Eco-Drive to traditional automatic (self winding). All watches are 200m water resistant or more.
A sound alternative to a Seiko diver’s watch
Ask a diver to name an affordable, good quality dive watch and they will most likely name of the many classic Seiko dive watch – and rightly so. Seiko have decades of experience making high quality dive watches at “sensible” prices. But don’t forget the other Japanese chronometer giant – Citizen. In my personal collection I have a Citizen Promaster Divers 200m BN0191-55L with Eco-Drive movement. A true alternative to the entry level and mid-range Seiko divers watches the Citizen range offer great value for money and typically high standards of Japanese build quality.
Mechanical Movement for the dive watch purist
For the old school diving purist it has to be the mechanical Citizen Promaster Automatic. In that range you’ll find models like the Citizen NY0085, the NY0040 and NY0100. You can still find some of the classic Citizen 8203 automatic divers watches. Similar to the iconic Seiko SKX007 and Seiko SKX009 Pepsi these models were in production from the late 1970’s through to 1999.
Eco-Drive technology for the diver demanding accuracy
The Citizen Eco-Drive watches should never need opening – offering years of maintenance free timekeeping. They use the natural movement of the wrist to charge the internal battery. It’s a combination of quartz accuracy and mechanical charging. The Eco-Drive range of watches include the Citizen Promaster Aqualand with an analogue DEPTH METER. Most popular is the Citizen Eco-Drive Diver 200 available in good used condition for under £150
