Latest dive watch from Citizen is the Promaster Pufferfish, well that’s what we’re calling it. Sure to become the general nickname for it, just like a Seiko Turtle.
Nice white dial, 42mm case and 200m of resistance. We like the novelty air tank box too. Nice touch. Have to say £399 is very reasonable for this spec when you look at how Seiko have price walked their dive watches up several notches during the Plandemic.
Here’s the word from Citizen;
An iconic classic is reimagined in the polished style of the new Promaster Dive Automatic men’s watch. Going deeper into history of the original version of this diving watch, it was used by the Italian Navy and released in 1989 for the new generation of dive watch enthusiasts.
A design element that stands out is the distinctive, serrated bezel design that was inspired by a fugu, the Japanese name for pufferfish. Featuring a 3-piece, 42mm case, sapphire crystal, and a silver-tone stainless steel case and bracelet, the black rotating bezel with an easy-grip aluminium ring surrounds the white dial and luminous hands and markers, while the case back features an engraving of a pufferfish.
This advanced automatic watch features a circa 42 hour power reserve, is ISO compliant with a screw-down crown and water resistance to 200 metres. Presented in an exclusive collector’s dive tank style box.
