    Is this worth keeping?

    Recently came across this and wanted your opinion on it as I know little about citizen models as I have not had one for ages. I know it's getting on a bit but condition wise as you can see from the photos is good for the age. Is it a reliable model as I have looked on here but found next to nothing

    Nice try Simon, but not sure about it yet. It all seems good but I can't find out much about it

    Cheers @Rocket1991 have to agree on the strap for sure it's not very nice perhaps a rubber strap would suit better, it's not a bad mid size watch but know nothing about the model if it's a reliable piece or just not a very popular model and that's why I can't seem to find much about it. But at the end of the day it only cost me £2.99 from a local charity shop that had a box full of watches just dropped in, looked at the others but mainly cheap fashion things that looked horrible ( to me anyway) apart from this one. Don't normally bother looking in but was killing time

    The model number is AJ0100-02E. It's a Promaster day/date diver from the late 90s. The condition of the watch suggests that it hasn't had a rough life so I imagine it works fine. Promasters are known for their durability. For £2.99, it's a bargain. Throw a new strap on it and you've got yourself an inexpensive good-looking everyday watch!

    It's Promaster = ISO certified diver.
    Considering size and thickness it almost dream come true: cuff friendly ISO diver.
    Very attractive thing in my books!
    Another thing it seem like austerity 90s models and i have few of them. Not bad as a watch but finish is not good. i liked designs and reliability and "nuclear" lume.
    Citizen was in a midst of switching to Eco-Drive thus obscure status. Personally i see this watch been pure quartz is not bad at all.

    Thank you @Rocket1991 and Sunmoonstar.13 for the info on this, definitely changing the strap and think I may keep hold of it.

    You just never know what's lurking in those shops sometimes @Simon, I'm thinking of doing exactly that new strap and enjoy it with the others
