I could post a poll, but it's not about any vote here. Given that the unfreezing of said program might be postponed even further, or said pieces might not be any longer available in it, this is all as theoretical as it gets.
That said, here are the possibilities... All three have Eco-Drive, which means they're worry-free beaters.
This is, basically, a Japanese equivalent of the Victorinox beaters. It even looks like a Victorinox. Unishell (top-loader) case with a 200m WR rating, where little, if anything at all, can go wrong. Downsides: the bracelet is fucking heavy, yet it rattles like the one in my Seiko 5. Seriously. Oh, and because it's quartz, it has no fucking soul.
ISO-compliant dive watch, and the way I see it, the best-looking dive watch from Citizen. I don't fucking dive anyway, so, not like I care too much. Downsides... The crown looks a wee bit odd, and has a somewhat short threading. By the way, the 44.5mm diameter is a load of bollocks, as that measurement seems to include the crown guards. Also, it's quartz, so it has no fucking soul.
Now, this is fucking bizarre, and it's unlike anything I've got, which makes it, like, tempting, like. Its major flaw is that it's one big and heavy fucker, the bastard child of a Flightmaster and a Navitimer - and on top of that, said bastard's on steroids. The BN0190-15E weighs a hair above 100g. This fucking behemoth weighs 192g. So, go figure.
However, yet again, they have measured the 47mm diameter from one bezel protrusion to another. The watch is, in fact, roughly 43mm (main bloc sans crown guards), 49mm lug to lug. Spec-wise, it's fucking nuts. Like the previous two, it has a 200m WR rating. Chrono (and unlike in non-RC Citizens, the chrono reset here doesn't suck flaccid cock), perpetual calendar, Eco-Drive, Radio-Controlled, quick time zone switching, alarm. It'd be a Grand Complications, if not for the fact that it's quartz - and therefore, it has no fucking soul.
So, which one would you choose, and why? If any of them - in thy considered opinion - fucking sucks flaccid cock, why? Just curious, for I am the Vintage Bloke, and it doesn't happen so often that I actually even consider anything modern, unless it's of the cheap and cheerful kind, and unless it's on a random fucking whim. The only reason why I do in this case, is because it'd be a goddamn free wartche as a reward for months of working my fucking arse off.
