    Does anyone know if the bracelet from the BN0118-55E model will fit on the blue dial version on a strap BN0118-12L? I would assume they would so long as the spring bar holes are drilled in the same position on the lugs.

    Re: Citizen BN0118-55e new "Ray Mears" pics and musings

    Well after several days of trying to find UK dealers who would ship to me in Canada I finally tracked down a dealer that would ship me a Citizen BN0118-55E. I tried contacting a John Lewis, but was told they have no international shipping options and would not ship the watch to me. I couldn’t find an e-mail address to directly contact the Oxford location though. The only other retailer that would ship was WatchO. They didn’t have the model in-stock but were very helpful responding to e-mails seeing if they could get one for me.

    I stumbled across J Herbert Jewellers in Nottingham. They had a lone BN0118-55E left in stock and it was on sale for £335 (from MSRP £369). Shipping to Canada was a further £10. So I think I did OK considering others payed full retail. J Herbert Jewellers even emailed me a photo of the watch at my request prior to shipping so I could make sure there was no alignment issues with the dial, chapter ring and second hand. Their customer service was excellent with a decent price to boot. I’ve put a link below to the watch on their website (out of stock at the time of the posting) in case some one else from USA or Canada wants one and they get a re-stock.

    I have to say I really like the blue dial variant. Wish it came on a bracelet too.

    Black dial on bracelet: BN0118-55E

    Here’s my watch:

    Received my Citizen Promaster Tough BN0118-55E last week. What a well designed and put together watch. It’s a shame Citizen doesn’t offer this watch in more markets other than the UK. All in I paid £315 (around $560 CAD) including shipping to Canada from the UK dealer. Fresh off the manufacturing line as well with an April 2019 serial number.

    Love the size on my 6.5” wrist. The 40mm will be a sweet spot for many wrists. Lume is also thick, even and both bright and long lasting. The second hand precisely hits all of the chapter ring markers. I had the Citizen Promaster Tough BN0211-50E but it’s quite a bit larger (and heavier being stainless steel) being 42mm and about 51mm lug to lug length. It also does not have the ratcheting clasp and the lume was no where near as good. The BN0118-55E is a much better fit for my small wrist, though I do prefer the dial of the BN0211-50E better (stick markers versus Arabic numbers).

    Good deal but looks like they wont ship it outside of the UK (or maybe EU)? Won’t let me order it and have it shipped to Canada at least.
