Men's Citizen Aqualand Eco-Drive Multi-Function Black Rubber Watch

Rating: 5 out of 5
  • Currently 5.0/5.0

When I started up with a new pursuit of scuba diving, I kitted myself out with all the regular gear such as wet and dry suits, snorkel, mask, fin* etc., but the little bit of extravagance I afforded myself was my diving watch.* My choice was the Citizen aqualand eco-drive multi-function time piece - JV0010-08E.* I had my eye on it for a while, and I have to say it is fabulous and very probably my favorite possession.*
It is extremely stylish in black rubber and stainless steel casing, with its grey dial, buckle clasp, red hands and luminous hour markers.* It really is a smart watch, completely different from any other I have seen and consequently has met with several envious glances on my dives that have taken me to places such as Bali, Egypt and St Lucia. *
So aesthetically the Citizen aqualand is wonderful, but it is the multi-functionality that I love the most.* For the diving it has a digital depth and water temperature display, and is water resistant to 200 meters.* Additionally there is an auto start dive mode which can measure the duration of any dive, whilst also having a dive log memory.* This is all terrific for someone who takes their diving that little more seriously, but the great thing about the item is that it's also a fantastic watch out of the water too.*
There are 3 separate alarms and all the travel and world time zones make it a fascinating companion.* However, the most spectacular thing about the Citizen aqualand is the price, just $600 which offers unbelievable value for money.* There are many competitors and naturally from a functional point of view, there are watches that do more, but obviously prices get up into 4 figures.* Seiko do a similar watch - their kinetic SKA371, and it is slightly cheaper, but it just doesn't look as stylish.* The Evo steel seal diver does measure up appearance wise, but costs nearly $200 more; only serving to highlight the excellent price of the Citizen.
