Citizen brings back the Orca

Post by Racer-X » June 18th 2022, 4:46am

"Japanese giant Citizen is no stranger to oceanic designs, and for its World Ocean Day contribution the brand revives one of its most unique and organic watch designs. The new Citizen Promaster Dive series faithfully revives the wildly distinctive 2006 Promaster Dive “Orca” line, with a newly refined execution and a focus on supporting ocean conservation."

A nice watch. Not sure about the steel case.
Didn't notice that - good pick-up. I'd much rather it was Ti.
Mine is the original ti case.

This one looks pretty badass:
Wow. That minute hand could be my dick right now.
That Citizen is the classic case of form over function, which is not a mistake Citizen makes often.

It genuinely looks awesome but is a nightmare functionally. Nothing is easy to read. The dial space is tiny for the amount of indicators in the space....its just confusing. Also, that bezel design looks like its from the Zilla - which is the biggest POS bezel ever put on a dive watch.

That is the Hummer H2 of dive watches.

Nationalism: a profound longing to go back to a past that never existed.

Yep, it's a great dive watch, to be sure, presumably aimed at the younger to middle-aged diver with eyesight and capacities intact.

Certainly, it seems aimed at those who you'd only trust with some deep snorkelling and who have no sense of aesthetics.

Like my old school one made of TI. Made good use of it over they years on the boat and just screwing around at the beach. Do not like the one in the photo at all.

Fugly & hideous is way too generous of a description.
Aren't you, like, REALLY old?
