Nice Dive Watch, but it is BIG!
My 22-year old Citizen Aqualand flooded after a battery replacement. Whether it was because of a bad seal or because the replacement was performed poorly, I dont know, but that arrangement has always been the rub of with an otherwise terrific daily wearer.
This new Citizen does not require battery replacements, ever. It is also built to an even higher standard, I think I could drive nails with this thing. The only drawback, for some, is the size. This is a large watch. No kidding. A Suunto D6 dive computer is smaller. Its not nick named Godzilla for no reason.

Citizen Eco Drive Professional 300M Dive watch
Received my Citizen Eco Drive Professional 300M Dive watch. I love my new watch. Its just what I expected top of the line professional dive watch. Great solar powered watch with big face. Great glow to watch when charged for diving and night time.

Citizen Eco-Drive Professional Stainless Steel Watch:
Eco Drive is a dive watch that has a light power system that charges the watch using ambient light.
My son is a scuba and free diver, surfer and spear fisherman. If he and a friend surface in fog, wouldnt it be prudent to have a compass on them somewhere. Otherwise, how would they know where East is (hes on the West Coast.) Thanks
I have a Citizen Hyper Aqualand I want to replace. I dont see any mention in the product description of the ability to download dive log info to a computer. Is that function no longer available?
