    How to date Citizen Hyoer Aqualand?

    I admit it, I like dive watches. Tool watches. Watches that have been places and done things. I’ve been looking for another “early era” piece of diving technology, preferably a watch…

    I just picked up a Citizen Hyper Aqualand from a diver that’s retiring. He bought it in “the early 2000s” and the copyright on the manual is 2002.

    Is there any way to tell the manufacturing date from the model, markings or serial number?

    It’s marked with
    D208-089839 - which I presume is the model number
    Y GN-4-5 - no idea - maybe a date code?
    850111 - seems to be a serial number

    Any ideas?

    I think that was easy - I found an online calculator that claims that 850111 breaks down as “year 8” (98, 08, 18) and that the 5 is May.

    Not sure I believe it - the paper documentation is all copyright 2002, so 98 is out and 2008 seems a little too late.

    It was launched in 1994 at $360

    Your watch is dated May 1998

    The paperwork could be later marriage

    or the watch made in May 98 and booklet given by the jeweller who had it in his shop a few yrs?
