Citizen Promaster Dive Watches mix modern functionality with classic looks. Underwater, they can alert you to rapid ascents and serve as max depth reminders.
Dive watches are still a relatively modern accomplishment. The Citizen Promaster Dive watch exemplifies the achievement with construction that encases delicate parts within a sealed, stainless case.
From there, the brand offers classic and modern styles with the latest dive-specific technology.
Modern Function, Classic Styling
Citizen has made watches for more than a century and has earned iconic status among watch enthusiasts and collectors who value durability and function in addition to design. That is, in part, due to the brand’s innovations.
In 1970, Citizen was the first to use titanium — then a relatively new, space-age material — in its X-8 Chronometer.
In 1996, Citizen introduced its Eco-Drive technology. This powers the company’s watches using any light source, not just sunlight. This removed the need for a battery and thus the chance of running out of power at an inopportune time — such as a dive.
It also adds a component of sustainability to the watch, in addition to an insanely long run time. Citizen notes that on a full charge, an Eco-Drive watch will keep running for 6 months in complete darkness.
The following Citizen Promaster dive watches are all powered by Eco-Drive technology even today. And they vary in the number of dive features, depth of water resistance, and styles.
The ISO compliance notes refer to the industry standards for reporting water resistance claims.
A classic stainless steel case paired with a black polyurethane strap. This dive watch is water-resistant up to 200 m. Divers should note it has a maximum depth memory and a power reserve indicator. It displays the date and time in 12- or 24-hour time formats. And it boasts a chronograph as well.
The Aqualand 30th Anniversary Limited Edition ISO-compliant watch has diving features like maximum depth memory, rapid ascent alarm, auto-start dive mode, and a power reserve indicator. The case is stainless steel with rose gold-tone ion plating that contrasts with the black rings, dial, and polyurethane strap.
This Promaster Diver men’s watch meets ISO compliance down to 200 m. It has a 43mm stainless steel case styled with an aluminum one-way rotating elapsed-time bezel, a matching blue dial, and luminescent hands and markers.
This popular dive watch is ISO rated for depths up to 200 m. The 42mm stainless steel case comes with a black polyurethane strap. Gold highlights contrast the black dial and one-way rotating bezel. And the black polyurethane strap fastens with a buckle clasp.
Citizen Promaster Dive watches are not only high-performing but also affordable in the competitive watch market. The most expensive of the bunch tops out at just over $500, while the most affordable clocks in near $260.
And each is backed by a 5-year warranty, with an extra year added if you register your watch through Citizen.
Citizen also employs the use of atomic timekeeping with its world multiband models. This radio control technology updates your watch, thanks to a time signal from an atomic clock. The margin of error is one second every 100,000 years. That’s tight timing.
