Review: Return of the Fugu: Citizen Promaster NY008

Post by Racer-X » October 23rd 2018, 8:21am

"In 1959, Citizen started making dive watches, with the first Japanese made water resistant mechanical watch known as “Parawater”, rated to 100m. And in 1993, the Italian Navy Seals Comando Subacqueo Incursori adopted the Citizen NY004 for official use. Now they have updated the NY004 with the NY008. Here is our hands-on review.

The first Fugu was the NY004, a legendary tool watch. The signature left hand crown at 8 o’clock ensured a protection against knocks as well as comfort for the wearer without the crown digging into the wrist. For 2018, Citizen has updated the NY004 with the NY008. Seven new models are released. Five in the regular collection, limited to 1000 pieces each, and a further two released in a more limited edition of 500 each for the Singapore/Malaysia market and the Thailand market. All are available from August and November."

I'm with you. I have to admit: Think all these nicknames are gay as fuck - all of 'em. from the "Batman" and "Hulk" Rolex to the Spork and the "Bronzo" Panerai. Cringing just typing 'em.
WatchGeeks will go down in watch forum history as the worst watch related site that existed. Trolls, threats, bannings, and owners and sponsors talking out of their collective asses to fleece people out of hard earned money. - Koimaster
