The Citizen Eco-Drive Aqualand

Rating: 5 out of 5
  • Currently 5.0/5.0

This watch has a stainless steel men's chronograph face with a comfortable rubber strap. The Eco-Drive has an extremely sharp look to it and can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. Made for deep-water diving with 660 foot water resistance it also features a depth sensor that provides an accurate reading to 125 feet and will record your maximum depth into the watch's memory. The white tipped hands with red second hands and large luminous dial markers make it easy to see and read with deep water diving. It also features a rapid ascent warning alarm, to warn you if you are ascending to quickly coming up from a dive. Other than the functionality of the diving features I love the fact that watch continuously recharges itself by absorbing sunlight and any artificial light through the crystal and dial. This is Citizen's own unique way of the battery recharging itself for life it's called Eco-Drive. Not to worry though if you store your watch and use it only for diving it has a 60 day power reserve and can recharge in just 2 hours once being exposed to light. This is an extremely durable watch that can be worn not only for diving but for everyday use; it has been beaten on and abused. I wear my watch everyday working on cars, diving, biking, and flying you name this watch has gone through it. There is one downside to this watch and it's the programming of this watch it can be difficult, it requires the actual use of the instruction booklet to zero the hands out at noon, which is required every so often. Adjusting time zones and daylight savings can be a hassle as well. All in all I would recommend this watch if you want something durable and especially if you dive.
