A $2,300 Citizen ProMaster dive watch?

Do you think the new ISO compliant 2017 Citizen ProMaster 1000m Professional Diver justifies a $2,300 MSRP? It features a power reserve indicator, anti-reflective sapphire crystal, a "Super Titanium" case and bezel with DLC + MRK coatings, a helium release valve, and a locking unidirectional bezel. The Eco-Drive J210 movement is rated at +/- 15 seconds per month.
My answer was yes... though after a healthy discount. Here it is with the included black polyurethane strap next to my "Eco-Zilla" ProMaster 300m (sporting an aftermarket Suppa Zilla titanium bracelet):

It's only worth what it's worth to you, But with a look and spec list as it has, $2300 seems kind of reasonable actually. Getting it at a good break makes it even better though.

Nice look, wear it in good health and spirit
After taxes out the door (with a full USA warranty), it was just under $1,600... so for me it was worth it. Many others would not pay that though for a Citizen solar quartz watch.
FYI: BN7020-17E is the USA model number that I purchased from the Citizen Company Store, while BN7020-09E is the model number sold in Japan and other parts of the world (and the model listed in most of the watch reviews).
