    Re: New Citizen Promaster Professional Diver BN0151-09L some pics

    Mine was delivered late yesterday afternoon! Ordered online from JCP on the third, delivered on the fifth. Thought it was coming from JCPenney stock, but it was sent directly from Citizen's Torrance, CA facility. So a short SoCal to NorCal delivery trip. Got busy with some family stuff and just unpacked it after lunch today. I've ordered a Di-Modell Denver strap, black leather with blue stitching, and will put up another picture when the strap arrives. I think all the NATO straps pictured earlier in this thread will look great with this watch, particularly interested in seeing how the one with the orange stripe looks. In the meantime, for size comparison purposes, here's a picture of the new Citizen (no name for it yet?) with my SNE107 and Citizen World Perpetual A-T. First attempt at posting a picture, so sorry if it's a dud. Okay, now to set it

    That's a great comparison shot! Well done! What's your first impression of the watch?

    How obviously blue is the dial? Is it like a blue Orca?

    I haven't seen a blue Orca in person before, but I would say it's like a Sumo or SMP Bond.

    Or somewhere between Azure blue and middle blue.

    Thanks! I did well in getting the black then... I love how the blue looks on those pictures but I know I have a huge problem with blue watches further down the line. I used to own a blue Orca and always chastized myself for not having bought the black one...

    Thank you, hero1963.

    It's a beautiful watch. Very nice contrast between the dark navy blue bezel and the blue dial. Hard for me to describe the exact color of the dial as it's been raining here all day in the Sacramento area and haven't seen the watch in sunlight yet. The watch is currently sitting under a fluorescent gro-light and the dial appears less dark than navy blue with a very slight gray tinge. Really need to see it in sunlight to see the true color. Has anyone seen it in sunlight yet?

    For those interested, the second hand hits the seconds markers

    Have very little experience with dive watches, but can compare the bezel movement of this watch and the SNE107. The 107's bezel, to me, seems to turn with a finer, quieter, more precise feeling and sound of fine gears meshing together, while the Citizen BN0151-09L's bezel turns with a louder, perhaps less refined sounding movement. Hope this makes some sense.

    Given my aging eyes, what I look for in a watch, besides accuracy, is a good contrast between the hands and the dial, large, easy to read hands, and great lume for seeing the time in low light. The SNE107 provides those features, and I think this current Citizen will too, as well as being a beautiful timepiece. I'll compare the lume of the two watches tonight.

    Did I mention the BN0151-09L is beautiful?

    Please post some pics when you get yours. You can't go wrong with black.

    Excellent write up! Yep, Seiko's bezel action is superior to Citizen's. However, we can live with it as it's beautiful.

    Look forward to your lume shot.
