    Hiro, the shark mesh is nice, no doubt, but I'd like an oyster. I don't mind the gap between the case and end links on the Strapcode.

    Scalz, the seller of the Promaster bracelet doesn't mention solid links, and the two links you can see to the left of the clasp look like folded links. I'm out. Strapcode it is, I guess.

    however, I agree with previous posters, it's a bit overpriced.
    a cheap eco-drive mvmt, no titanium case, no titanium bracelet...

    My orca ti on ti bracelet, same mvmt, was only slightly more expensive...
    and citizen is offering at this price titanium watches with super-ti hardening and sapphire glass...

    take the NY0040, automatic, cheaper, how can it be? or the 007/009...
    for 211 dollars a sapphire glass or auto mvmt could have been expected
    But size and design are really great

    I think $200-$220 price point is good for this watch. $200 does not even get you a boutique watch(Kenneth Cole, Michael Kors) unless it is on sale, not to mention a real watch like the Citizen.

    But actually if you look at what full retail prices is on the watches, the Seiko SKX007 and SKX009 and the USA Market SKX173 all are listed at $425 suggested retail prices so the Citizen diver featured selling at MSRP of $295 is a cheaper price point then the auto divers. I don't fault Citizen for not putting Sapphire crystal on this watch because it does sell at a low price. I have never seen a watch with a sapphire crystal on it for less then $400 here in the USA.

    To me if it was Ti and had sapphire on it then that would be a deal breaker for me as I feel Ti makes the watch feel cheap due to the lightness and the only 2 watches I have ever broken the crystal on were watches with a sapphire crystal on it and those were lightly bumped against things. I will stick with mineral glass.

    I ordered this watch on January 24 from Kay Jewlers for $221. with two day shipping. Lo and behold, it arrived on the 27th of January, direct from Citizen, just in time for a mid winter dive trip to Cozumel. A great design. I really like the cylindrical body paired with the tapered bezel.

    I had bought my son a bn0000-04 several years ago but never liked the 3 o'clock crown. I was about to break down and buy one for myself anyways for the convenience and accuracy of the Eco Drive when the bn0151 popped up. I am very happy with my choice.

    And it even works underwater!

    That Citizen bracelet on the bay has hollow ends from the pics, so it will rattle. I would pass on it.

    For some reason the strap/rubber combo looks better to me.

    I actually prefer the blue over the black version. However I think I like tge ss bracelet over the rubber. Hope the bracelet can be had for a reasonable price.
