Citizen Pufferfish: 200m Dive Watch, £399. Nice Deal.

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.

Citizen Nighthawk: Get The MilSpec Look Every Day

But somethimes, it’s cool…

Citizen CZ Smartwatch Actually Looks Like a Watch

Citizen has a new hybrid Smart watch range and although we are generally old school auto/mech watches here at NWC, we scanned the press release anyway. What we like is that this is a conventional watch design, whereas so many health watches look like black Lego squares. Just saying. It links to a health app,…
