My name's Riccardo, from Italy. I'm new to the forum, so I hope I'm posting this message to the right place.
Anyway, I'm about to buy a new watch and I'm searching for the following features:
- water resistant, enough to swim and do some minor free diving (3-4 mt.)
- classic diver look, time and date only
- automatic movement
- iron bracelet, with possibility to exchange it with rubber strap
- renowned quality brand
- budget under 250-300$
After some research I restricted my choices to Citizen Promaster Diver NY0040-50E and Seiko SKX007K2. Now my personal evaluation is that the two timepieces are very similar. But I'm not an expert. Therefore I'm asking to the forum's members if there are any important reasons why I should prefer Citizen or Seiko.
Thanks for your help.
