    NY2300 vs SNE109P

    After deciding around 12 months ago that I needed a diver I began the search. After much deliberation I settled on a Seiko SNE109P -it looked great, solar quartz, affordable and orange. However after wearing a couple of times I found myself reaching for other watches and after giving it some thought it came down to size. With a 6.75" wrist it just felt too big. So back to the internet to find a replacement diver that would work for a smaller wrist.

    In the end it came down to two: the Seiko SKX013 and the Citizen NY2300. I had no clear preference frankly, but the Citizen stacked up ahead of the Seiko on a number of fronts -I like the NY's face and particularly the hands, the Miyota movement over the Seiko's 726, and the price -the Citizen's a bargain currently at $100 less ($NZ) than the Seiko.

    When the Citizen arrived yesterday I knew I'd made the right choice. The watch looks much better in the flesh, the size is perfect and accuracy 24hrs on is perfect so far.
    I'm ambivalent on the Pepsi colouring, but it's growing on me.

    Comparison with the Seiko SNE109P shows the difference -smaller face but main difference is the lug sizing, with the Citizen proving a lot more compact. Still have much love for the Seiko but I'll never wear it, so it'll be looking for a new home shortly

    Wouldn't hesitate to recommend the NY2300 to anyone with smaller wrists looking for a good midsize diver -at the current prices they're a real bargain

    Glad you found the Citizen that suits you. It's a looker.

    But I beg you... Please don't ignore that sweet Seiko. It deserves wrist-time also!

    Thank you for your report, I too would choose Citizen as it look dressy and classy.

    Quick update...

    The NY2300 is shockingly ACCURATE -more accurate than the Seiko quartz. This is a real surprise as I've always dismissed mechanical movement timepieces as being inherently less accurate than a quartz movement.

    The lume is fantastic also, I 've checked it a few times at around 5:30am, it lasts well through the night.

    Strap -has softened up a little now, extremely comfortable, I see no reason to change it.

    The 'Pepsi' look -I didn't want this to begin with, but have grown to love it.

    The fit and finish on this watch are exemplary frankly, I struggle to see how it sells for such a low price. There's usually something you would change about any item you own -with this, nothing

    Seiko diver Quartz is hard to fine, but the solar diver is easy.

    Hi,
    I just bought this Ny2300 from skywatches, all out came to 150$,. It certainly looks good with black & grey nato.
    Only gripe/question is have about the smoothness of the DAY window, it is not as smooth as Date window, it doesn't feel confident, sounds and feel glitchy, but it works, the alignment is proper to DATE window,. DATE changes are smooth, sound and feel confident too,. I contacted skywatches, they got back saying all their watches behave same, kind of hard to believe,.

    How does it behave on your watch, while if you are changing DAY window only ?

    I would appreciate your reply back ?
