I wore my Citizen BN0085 on OEM rubber. The case is large (47mm, 51 lug-to-lug, 14mm high) but extremely comfortable. It has a domed mineral crystal and a lumed "60" where the bezel lume pip should be. The dial is highly readable and the bezel action is really quite good. I do have a quibble though with the lack of a lume pip. When diving I glance at the bezel and can tell instantly what the elapsed time is from the distance between the lume pip and the minute hand. Without the pip I was having to read off the actual bezel indices. No problem, but just not as convenient as I am used to. In favour of the watch is its looks. It actually looks more like dive equipment than a dive watch. It is completely at home amongst the regulators and computers. Overall, I really enjoyed diving with the Citizen.

Done for now until next time!
