    Citizen NH8384-14EB

    Just to share with you guys on this new Citizen NH series diver.


    Nice size and 5 variants.


    - Black bezel insert/black dial
    - Blue bezel insert/blue dial
    - PVD variant
    - Gold bezel/black dial
    - Rose gold case variant


    The new NH Series Specs


    Size: 45mm excluding crown
    Lugwidth: 24mm
    Thickness: 13mm
    Movement: Miyota 8200
    Strap: Stock 24mm rubber strap


    The look is almost similar to the older NY0040 series but with several ugraded features, larger case, plongeur style hands, nicer 12,3,6,9 hour marker design.


    As this is a 100m watch, the crown is a non-screwdown type as compared to the NY0040 series which are under Promaster series and in 200m hence are on screwdown crown.


    Case


    Case is in brushed finish, no sharp edge around the crown. One good thing is, the lugs are short and hence does not 'sticks' out for those who have a small wrist.






    Another interesting feature is the semi-shrouded case, covering half the bezel.






    Crown Guard and Crown


    Crown is non screwdown type. Normal 2-Clicks, click pull type.


    I noticed the 6mm crown is slightly on the smaller side vs the whole proportion of the case size but it's not really an issue. It is still easy to grip but if the crown is made slightly bigger by another 1mm-1.5mm, I believe the look will be more complete and will definitely look more 'toolish' and rugged.












    Bezel and Insert


    Thick bezel which I like, close to 4mm thick. 120 clicks, not the 60 clicks action as compare to the NY0040 series. Bezel action is pretty smooth although there is still a bit of 'free play'. Actual bezel resembles more of a brass finish than gold. It might be due to the brushed subtle gold finishing vs a polished gold finish.



    The thick grooves on the bezel greatly aids in the gripping part.






    No lume on 12:00 pip.



    Dial and Hands


    Dial has a very low sheen in starburst finish, almost nearing to a matt but not entirely matt.



    The reason why I chose this variant over the blue was the raised gold marker indices, creating more depth on the black dial vs a s/s indices.









    Day wheel is in both Eng/Chinese



    Plongeur style hands. Lume junkies, sorry, you might be disappointed by the lume quality, not poor but doesn't fires up like a NY Series does hence the NY0040 series lume win hands down immediately.









    Caseback


    Solid caseback with the usual engravings.



    A side by side comparison between the NY0040 & NH8384



    Thanks for reading!

    Are you sure NH8384-E14B is the model number? I can't find any webpage that references the model. Love the watch, would like to see who is selling it.

    Yes, I'm very certain the model number is correct. Weird thing is, I was unable to get any hits when I googled for this # number before my purchase.

    Wow, I love this watch! Thanks so much for sharing so many detailed photos! This is for sure my next purchase even though I wish it was 200m WR.

    Thanks for reading too! Well, 100m or 200m does not really affects anything for me since I do not dive, desk dive, yes :)

    But you are right, I will also much prefer if it's a screw-down crown than a pull-push type (200m vs 100m).

    I keep coming back to this as I really, really like it. Do you have a luminosity photo to add to your already nice pictures series? Thanks

    Lume shots (1 minute under sunlight). The winner is obvious :)

    Ture that: the Seiko Lume wins clearly! The Citizen is not too shabby either. Thanks for posting!
