Rating: Nice Dive Watch, but it is BIG!
Reviewer: James W.
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.

Rating: The Citizen BJ8050-08E ISO Certified Dive Watch
Reviewer: Emma Stephens
The Citizen BJ8050-08E... After reading all these great reviews all over the internet excellent, so one day I ordered it and I received it. I looked it over, not bad. The case is well made the crown screws in with precision. "Stainless Steel Case" that is very well made."Mineral Type Crystal" that is 6mm thick and has a UV coating (bluish tint). 48mm Dia. + 18mm Thick. I have a 7 1/4" inch wrist so it fits my wrist very well and its very comfortable. I love the "rubber Type Band" very high quality. "Low Charge Warning Feature" every 2 seconds skip with the second hand. "Time Set Warning Feature" second hand goes 1,2,3 very fast then skips another 2 seconds all in one step to let you know the watch stopped and the time is off. "Overcharge Prevention Function" watch does not over charge the battery. "Secondary Battery" that never needs replacing. "ISO Certified Watch" weighing about 176 grams. This watch is very luminous under water and great for diving and is approved in the manual for saturation diving. Set it once and forget it until Daylight Savings Time, I like that very much! I also got with mine with an extra length rubber extension strap for fitting wet suits when diving. Now is it worth it?, Yes! Your getting your moneys worth in a well made watch! I highly recommend this watch.

Rating: Awesome Watch
Reviewer: John J.
Watch looks incredible. All my friends want one. Keeps perfect time. Only 6 ounces but looks like 20. I love big watches and with Citizen, you can not go wrong. Solar eco drive means never having to open it up which is a big plus for me. Seems like after you open a watch, it is never as water proof. No worries with this one. As of 5/24/15, has the best price on the watch and is the most legit site.

    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

    The one thing that this watch does not apparently have is a depth gauge. Is there one on it that I did not see? Thank you.

    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?
