It was only appropriate that Citizen offered something amazing and different for their 20th Anniversary. Our expectations ran high and we were not disappointed. In celebration of its 20th Anniversary, Citizen Watch Co. of Japan launched the Aqualand Black Imperial Dive Watch. The Aqualand Black Imperial Dive Watch is a truly awesome watch bringing together sheer professionalism and technology in one handsome piece of eternal beauty for men.
The Promaster citizen watches are the perfect mix of design, technology and professional usefulness. Aimed at the professional scuba diver, it incorporates a sophisticated depth meter and plenty of dive measurement functions to accompany it. The watch itself looks unique with a semi-circular moon-phase design. For the uninitiated, the ‘Digital Analog’ refers to the presence of digital as well as analog systems in the same watch.
Most scuba divers dive up to depths not exceeding 100 meters which is why the Aqualand Black Imperial Digital Analog Dive Watch provides depth information for up to 100 meters in a digital format.
Apart from displaying the current depth, it also displays the maximum depth. More importantly, it also has a dive time measurement mode, current water temperature display as well as a lowest temperature display. For good measure it also has a surface interval measurement.
The ‘digital brain’ in the Automatic citizen watches stores dive related information. In fact, it can store up to 20 dive related data and you can scroll through it analyzing your underwater performance. Although it has been calibrated for up to 100 meter, it can continue functioning even up to depths of 200 meters.
It’s coded buttons and eye-catching moon phase 48.5 mm case (16 mm thick) looks good even in the dark depths of the ocean. The case is made of non-reflective stainless steel, and the dial is absolutely easy to read. With a combination of analog and a digital display, the Citizen chronograph mens watch was an instant hit amongst serious divers and watch lovers alike. It simply did not matter whether you wore the Citizen chronograph watches to dive in water or dive into a party – it suits both occasions.
Citizen is famous for its ‘Eco-Drive’ technology. The Eco-drive is a revolutionary technology that recharges a battery by converting any available light source into electrical energy. This same technology has been incorporated into the Citizen chronograph mens watch making it highly environmentally friendly. In fact, a full charge will power the Aqualand Black Imperial Digital Analog Dive Watch for an amazing six month period. It even has a 24 hour ‘reserve’ power supply. When the battery power is running low, it will display a low charge warning but the watch itself will continue functioning for 24 hours. Simply take the watch from out of wherever it was kept and place it near a light source – any light source will do. In about 90 minutes of charging, it is good to go.
The Citizen watches eco drive has a day-date display, has three different alarms, electro-luminescence backlight for readability and a world time in 42 cities. A scratch resistant, non-reflective crystal is standard on the Aqualand Black Imperial Digital Analog Dive Watch. The watch comes with a very comfortable, skin-friendly non-slip rubber strap with a buckle.
