Watch 75 Citizen

This Citizen 'Autozilla' Pro Diver watch was submitted by Harvey Neustadt III. -instagram user @mariner_7

'This watch for me is the epitome of what the strengths and abilities of a true dive watch should feature.

It uses a finely tuned miyota workhorse 8203B movement housed inside a rubber ring inside the case to make it virtually shockproof. Large crown at the 9 position to give excellent hand/wrist articulation. A remove-able bezel for cleaning, complete with lever lock mechanism to prevent accidental loosening. 1000M water resistant, titanium case with a 'duratect' coating to prevent scratching, 6mm thick sapphire domed crystal with AR coating, automatic HEV, true ISO 6425 certified.

The design is very striking, it is a large watch at 48mm case size, 55 with the crown, I believe. However the titanium construction makes it feel lightweight and the case back style and design allows it to wear very comfortably. The bezel is ashtray-esque and grips nicely because of this.

The bezel is raised so it protects the crystal very well. Very well thought out by Citizen. It features very bright blue lume and uses large hands including an orange minute hand and raised, polished edge indices, and pointed seconds hand. It also has a day/date wheel, which further solidifies this as a true tool watch.'

'An anniversary watch...just can't remember which year, oh dear, but it's simple, elegant and hasn't missed a beat in about 14-16 years. Loving your paintings mate, keep it up. A good inspiration for me, I play with watercolour but more rarely than I'd like.'
