    Default A Scarce "Orange Citizen" Promaster 200m Vintage diver arrived!

    Hello my friends,

    Today was a nice day to check the mail at the local Post Office, the Temperatures here in Northern Central NY are somewhat Cooler today with a Slight breeze.

    I turned the Key & Opened the box to see a EMS package notification tag sitting there, mixed in with the rest of the General Mail. The Tag notice stated it was a package from Osaka Japan that was there waiting for me to sign for it... I signed as quickly as possible & hurried back home to see what Goodies were inside...


    I knew this watch was on it's way, and when I opened the small well packed box from a friend of mine there in Osaka JP, I saw the Glimmer of an Orange dial which always Excites me!...

    The new but vintage arrival was:
    A very scarce seldom seen original- JDM Citizen Promaster Orange #2851 200m Quartz Diver, in exceptional condition.

    Some sellers pics below:








    This watch was made in 1983, and is the only Citizen diver that I have owned now except for my 1st. Citizen back in those years. The 1st was the Citizen Aqualand Quartz diver, with depth gauge.

    So it's really nice to now have another Citizen after all these years!


    The watch has some very nice features:

    *From the very Cool Matt Orange Dial,
    *To the Proprietary Citizen thick hardlex crystal,
    *Along with the English/Kanji day date calendar,
    *Raised Gold plated indices and hands,
    *Screw-down crown at 4 o'clock & screw-in caseback,
    *42mm width with crown, ect.ect.

    To me, this watch has all the features one could hope for in a very sharp looking Citizen 200m Diver IMHO.
    Some stats:
    Country of Origin: Japan
    Model Type: JDM Promaster Diver
    Movement: #2851 Quartz Caliber
    Width with Crown: approx. 42mm
    Depth Rating: 200m


    Hope you enjoyed seeing this, as much as I enjoyed typing it up!

    Cheers,
    Jimmy

    Default Thanks AAflyboy, yes the original owner took VG care of it...

    and looks like it was never subjected to any misuse at all.

    The Shade is a rich pastel matt Orange, very clean and the original lume in this watch still glows like a light bulb for hours. Sure makes the whole package really nice with its classic diver design.

    Thanks again Sir & appreciate your reply!

    Cheers,
    Jim

    Default Yes bullosa, that's about what the orignal owner had mentioned

    that he wore the watch only for a few months total since it was bought and sat in his dresser drawer wrapped up with a sock, but that he had always had the battery replaced when it ran down.

    So you are exactly right!

    lol, Lucky me...

    Regards,
    Jim
