Vintage-Inspired Mechanical Dive Watches

What We Know

Citizen has a long, proud history of dive-watch production. But you don't have to take it from me – our friend and diver extraordinaire Jason Heaton goes so far as to place "the original Citizen Aqualand in the pantheon of great dive watches, alongside the first Fifty Fathoms, the Rolex Submariner, and the Doxa SUB 300." That's high praise from the man who knows dive watches better than pretty much anyone.

The latest release from Citizen should be right up the alley of anyone who appreciates dive-watch history. The new Promaster Mechanical Diver 200m consists of an ISO-certified pair of mechanical dive watches, each placed in a nicely sized 41mm × 12.1mm case that's constructed of Citizen's proprietary Super Titanium, a lightweight alloy that's received a surface hardening treatment to increase its scratch-resistance up to five times that of typical stainless steel (as well as being up to 40 percent lighter). The watch's abrasion resistance is enhanced even further by the use of sapphire crystal on top of the dial.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
