In-Depth The Citizen Aqualand:

Post by koimaster » April 4th 2020, 10:54pm

The year 2019 marks the 30th anniversary of Citizen’s Promaster line, a series of watches that have become well known as true tool watches, often recommended to those looking for a "beater" or a "travel watch" due to their ruggedness, functionality and affordability. Those watches, built for air, sea, and land, have had familiar names like Altichron, Nighthawk, and Aqualand, as well as numerous variations of dive watches, from automatics to quartz, to solar charged Eco-Drive. But four years before Promaster became an official name in the Citizen lineup, the first generation Aqualand was a dive watch that broke new ground while, ironically, foretelling the end of an era – that of the true diver’s watch.

Still have my CO023 but sadly it stopped running just last year. Cost a lot more to get fixed than I originally paid for it. "rare" black model, 6 screw back also. One of these days. Worn more than all the other watches I have owned put together.

Promasters are rock solid. The newer blue one, the 30th anniversary blue model, is just rock solid, and probably is now in my top three where wrist time is concerned.
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
