Almost all of us have come across this point: Want a watch that’s more than just a pretty face or fashionably stylish but also not overly technical to raise negative impressions in another’s mind. It should make a vital component of power dressing yet a stunning add-on for every sort of gatherings except for the boisterous ones. No, not quite; if you wear a gold chain, you may wear it even at the beach volleyball sessions and recreational water sports as long as you don’t cross 300 feet. Despite the lowering of the actual test readings by the manufacturer, it doesn’t hurt to dive 30 feet less.
This JDM, two-tone Citizen Aqualand Promaster Sapphire Men’s watch fits all the above criteria. The BL8004-53E is its American cousin with a mineral crystal instead of sapphire. This classically beautiful Citizen Aqualand Titanium is not in for the high-dollar competition, but its heaviness shall stun you!No romantic messages preceeds this piece of raw but seasoned manliness; this watch is as lusty as it can get. Kind of a wear it, forget it watch that needs some cuddling for the first time. Set it and it will run as long as it lasts; tikering with the settings is optional.
There’s certainly a large chunk who wants to get on the finer details; they shall be delighted to know it will automatically adjust for odd/even months and Leap Years till its 2100!
It’s wide, round stainless steel with a thin, golden outline around the bezel. The polished gold appears again in the stainless steel bracelet; this time with brushed silver interlinks. It’s tough saying whether it’s the gold that gives prominence to the dark background or the background imparting it to the gold parts; anyway, the total presentation is excellent!
The subdials indicate the day, 24-hour readings and mode. With the last one, you select the function you want the watch to perform. You’ll set local time, calendar and alarm (low in db; high on frequency – in plain English, it can wake anyone up from deep sleep).
The hands are luminous and gold-toned; markers are just gold-tone. On top of everything, is an anti-reflective, scratch-resistant mineral crystal.
A note for mechanical men who avoid quartz just because it needs battery replacements. This opens the factory seal, making the watch – how much ever harsh that may sound – lose a small percentage of its authenticity. With Citizen Skyhawk, you shed that inhibition. Unless something seriously goes wrong (never heard of except for a handful), Eco-Drive shall tick for a lifetime. It is also because of this reason Citizen could bring in the power-hungry features together; batteries wouldn’t even last for a year! Just take care to give it enough exposure to neon lights – a couple of hours everyday for three weeks – or, in bright sunlight (so that the heat doesn’t fall on it head-on) for 4 hours. It stores three months worth of charge, full brimmed up. The cut-out doesn’t let any overflow happen.
