Three New Citizen Eco-Drive Brycen Divers

Post by Racer-X » February 28th 2019, 7:13pm

"Citizen is perhaps best known for their Eco-Drive technology, which has been a core part of their catalog for years. Eco-Drive was first introduced in the mid-90s (though Citizen’s first light-powered watch came out in 1976), and in the years since Citizen has refined and elevated the tech to new heights. In 2016, Citizen unveiled the Eco-Drive One, the thinnest solar-powered timepiece ever produced coming in at just 3 millimeters thick. And last year, Citizen announced the Caliber 0100 Eco-Drive prototype, a high-accuracy quartz movement that boasts precision of just ±1 second per year. Though that exact caliber is a prototype and it won’t be available to the public, the tech inside the Caliber 0100 is expected to be featured in future models.

Citizen recently unveiled a trio of Eco-Drive divers through the Brycen range, and what makes these three stand out from most of Citizen’s current catalog is that they take on more of a neo-vintage aesthetic than most. At first glance, I’d say the watches look like ‘70s-inspired divers, featuring a mix of bold colors, classic design cues, and, of course, Citizen’s Eco-Drive tech. I’m a fan of when Citizen keeps it simple, and I think they’ve done that here."

As Homer Simpson would say, "Booooor-ring." This watch is spectacularly boring. There is nothing here to give my dick the slightest twitch. Is it good? Probably, because it's from Citizen, and Citi usually makes good watches. Will it last and run well and even look OK on the wrist of a non-WIS? Sure. There's nothing wrong with it apart from the fact that it is unspeakably, soul-crushingly boring. It is the Toyota Corolla of the watch trade. Indeed, it was so mind-numbingly boring that I am, at this instant, hammering a Cabriole table leg up my fucking ass.
I find tv watches to be like the guys who raise their truck you need a fricken ladder to get in. It’s a attempt to look cool... that’s all.
