    Citizen vs. Citizen

    Just doing some mental gymnastics on a Saturday morning and I was wondering if anyone has owned a Citizen Promaster NY0081-10L and a Citizen Promaster BN0151-09L. Pros and cons, likes and dislikes? The Eco-drive is about $100 cheaper. I would probably put either one on a bracelet for a summer/travel beater. I'm currently using a Vostok Amphibian in that role and I'm just exploring other options. Thanks for any input and insight.

    (Borrowed images for the Citizens.)

    I originally posted this query in Affordables and it was suggested that I may get some more responses here, so we will give it a try. TIA.

    The Eco-Drives are great watches. I've got two, including the BN0151. The big pluses for the Eco-Drive are the price, accuracy, and it's fairly light (to me). If you want the convenience of set it and forget it/accurate timekeeping...go with the BN0151. If you want a watch with personality...go with an automatic.

    I tend to daily wear a Seiko SKX007, so I've got both the automatic and quartz/Eco-Drive bases covered. Whenever I eventually tired of adjusting the time every couple of days, I go back to one of my Eco-Drives. You really can't beat the price of the base Citizen Eco-Drive dive watches.

    I think between the two, but based on looks alone, I like the date only model! Also that Vostok is sweet! Now that I look a second time definitely the Eco-drive!

    Functionally, the main difference is the movement. Automatic vs. Eco-Drive/solar.

    You bring up a good point on the day/date thing. Personally...I like having the day and date on my Seiko SKX007. However, the day gives you one more thing that you have to adjust.

    Yes I have the same thing on a few of my watches I thought they had to have both day & date but visually I find I like just the date.. Also my only Citizen is date only, but a different style all together! A sporty chronograph.

    I'd go with the EcoDrive. I don't like the crown on the left side (right handed), and for a grab-and-go watch not worrying about winding/resetting is nice. I have the BN0150 model (black). The BN0191 is a nice option if you're wanting blue on a bracelet (looks good on a strap, too).
