    I saw this snippet about a forthcoming diver in Montres magazine whilst holidaying in France over the summer; definitely going to invest in this once the Nautica dies.

    Do you have any info on that model and when it is coming out?! I've always loved Hulk Subs and green sea dwellers, but will likely never get one. That has that green dial persuasion!

    What I've noticed with many of the watches they produce is that despite producing a reasonable sized watch they make the date window really small.

    No, sorry - I’ve been looking on the Citizen site myself but no joy as yet. I read it in August so I’m guessing release may be a couple of months off yet.

    Yep, spot on, they are too small. At 51 I can still read it unaided, but no idea why they can’t make them bigger.

    You know, I just did a side by side look at that Eco-Drive I posted and my DSOTM and actually the size of the two date windows is pretty much identical. However, the Citizen window is wider than the DSOTM but shorter. That makes it less legible. Also, the DSOTM uses a clean, bold font in white on a black background. The Citizen uses a non-bold, terrible font in black on what looks like an off white background. All of that makes the Citizen window look a lot smaller than it is. But I reckon that the areas of both windows are pretty much indistinguishable.

    Anyway, I like the Citizen a lot. It’s a striking looking watch for “only” 160 USD and I rotate it regularly with my Omegas and Blancpain. I have an older Eco-Drive (15 years or so) and the solar battery has no noticeable loss in performance. I hate having to change watch batteries, so my Quartz watches are all solar (also have a 20 year old G-shock).

    Here is mine - I guess from the 1970's. Found it on a flea market. Unfortunately no background info on this model in the www until now

    To me whenever the word Quartz is mentioned it has to be in the context of an Eco-Drive watch - my oldest is a 16 year old much abused, the Chronograph didn't last at all long it felt horrible in use, just looked nice so was sold on. The titanium one is currently my absolute favourite and a joy to wear. _PB290261c.jpg _PB200186c.jpg _PB240202c.jpg
