FYI. I jumped on this the first time it dropped as it looked good in the photos. When it arrived, I thought it was quite ugly and looked cheap. Too many indents around the dial, and the face just looked plasticy.
Great size, love my dive watches big
Such a slick looking diver but why does it have to be so damned large? (I just picked up a similar model from Amazon for $129 and it has a perfect 43mm case, which is my maximum size.)
Careful with this purchase guys. Citizen is probably the forefront of the market for solar watches with their eco-drive technology. However, they are known in the watch community for having very faulty automatic movements, and this doesnt come with a warranty hate to do it, but i'm just looking out for the community

This model goes with miyota 8200. Whats wrong with it?
McDonaldsTrump
Yeah, Miyota is owned by Citizen, so you'd think the quality would be at that level.
$110 is a good price for this watch, but where's the NH8381-12L (blue) version? It's like shopping a thrift store. Good prices but incomplete selection and very little quantity = frustrating.
Can anyone comment on the 11E black case model? Is the finish a DLC finish and how the finish holds up to wear?
Gunnersmate2
Very unlikely to have DLC on a Citizen watch of this price level.
Once again lacking photos and description info is causing me to look elsewhere for the information. Come on massdrop a few more pictures and words can't cost that much time or money. I'm not hating, I really like massdrop. I just get tired of their lackadaisical approach.
What is the lug to lug width? MD seems to be missing this important detail

I would think with just a 10% discount off a watch (from lowest price I could find, with a non dealer warranty), and removing all warranty from it, you would be able to sell unlimited copies!
Really lame that one of the few watch drops that is actually a relatively good deal is limited to 20 copies of each model. Someone please help Massdrop regain some relevance before it's too late!
silver and black are sold out, rip.
I have this watch - the blue version - I like it, but recently noticed that the silver frame from the day/date window has come loose and is floating around on the dial. Disappointing, but not the end of the world, for me, as I am comfortable opening up the watch and just removing the loose frame.
Please be aware this is watch is not going to be anything other than a lower end good looking "not-real diver watch". The crown is not even screw down. Grab a Deep Blue in the $200s if you want great value with true diver performance.
That's a nice looking casual watch for a good price, but not a diver with its 100m WR's. Also 46mm diameter makes it too big for me.

I taught SCUBA for couple years - used plenty of 100m watches; they are fine. Max depth for a rec diver is 40m, and you are going to be there for 5min not doing much as a) your air will be dropping like a rock and b) no decco stops. Is it a watch for a tech diver - no, is it perfectly fine for recreational diving - absolutely. 90% of the time you are going to be diving 10-20m range.
I had students using 50m watches without an issue. Additionally, nowadays you will have a dive computer as your primary timer. Interestingly, most of them are rated at 100m. There's been a depth rating creep in recent decades, as manufacturers try to upsale customers into more expensive models.
This one, from a reputable manufacturer and a good design, is plenty fine for recreational SCUBA.
Just got mine today. Already changed bands and put a waffle strap on it. Looks good but the bezel is a little tinny sounding other than that it’s a nice watch

Hi I got the same color. Looks great! How long from when you bought till it arrived? Thanks!
AgentMulders
After I bought my black model..it said sold out immediately. I must have got the last one
Been waiting for this to hit here and now it's come and gone before I have a chance to get one...just my luck. Amazon, here I come!
I have this watch...in blue. Awesome for what it is. I swim with it all the time with no issues. Really cool watch...
Already gone! Anyone know the price?

$109.99 for the brushed one.
Ah dang I would've bought that, this was gone quick though
Anyone looking to purchase this watch and actually dive with it may want to hold off. 100m water resistance translates into taking a shower and/or a bit of a swim - it does not mean diving. In addition, I would have appreciated a bit more info on the clasp on the strap - true dive watches take clasps to a new level, expanding the strap to allow it to be worn over a wetsuit or other diving clothing.
All that said, I believe Citizen did a lovely job on creating a dive aesthetic with the overall design of the watch face - I would be far more appreciative of it had it sported a 200m 'real' dive watch rating. As it stands, this is a sheep in wolf's clothing.

Hi Erik, I think we're both on the same page here. :) My original post indicated that 100m was good for swimming (surface snorkeling) and showering (your Citizen link supports this also), but not so much for diving.

The crown does not tighten down in mine.
The black Pvd on a waffle would be sick!
Boriiing
Looks like a solid deal. My tiny wrist will keep me out of this one unfortunately.
Massdrop, you cruel temptress, just when I pulled the trigger on the Orient Bambino you put up this nice looking and affordable automatic diver on sale : (

Mbot is at it again... sad little POS that he is...
Motorrad
Lol easy there with those insults you lot😁
It's the watches here at Massdrop that are a POS
I have the black pvd version of this watch and it is really nice. The MD price is a bit lower of the price I paid on an offer on amazon. Go for it if you can!
