Here we have a 2023 Citizen Promaster Automatic Fugu NY0130-08E with a 44mm brushed stainless steel case that curves over your wrist with thick tapered lugs, a lug-to-lug length of 49mm and a case thickness of 12.5mm giving the watch an impressive wrist presence. The watch design is inspired by the Fugu puffer fish, a Japanese delicacy which has to have a highly toxic organ removed by the chef or else you face an agonising death. Down the left-hand side at 8 o’clock a robust screw-down Promaster signed crown with deep knurling for extra grip, the Promaster symbol signifying the ISO6425 Certification. The unidirectional dive bezel has deep knurling in sections for extra grip, a black insert 60-minute scale in silver numerals making it easy to read, and the flat sapphire crystal AR coated sits above a matte black textured dial highlighting the intricate patterns that the Fufu puffer fish makes in the sand as part of its mating ritual. A yellow minute chapter ring surrounds trapezoidal-shaped indexes coated in luminance marking the hours, at 3 o’clock a day/date window, broad arrow hands are coated in the same luminescence complemented by a yellow arrow point tapered second-hand, at 12 o’clock we have the Citizen motif and at 6 o’clock “Automatic Divers 200m”. On the reverse, a screw-down case back with an engraved Fugu puffer fish inflated in the centre, inside an automatic Miyota Cal. 8204, 21 jewels, beating at 21,600 beats per hour, this workhorse movement first introduced in 1977 has hand winding and hacking seconds for your convenience. The watch comes fitted on its 20mm Citizen black polyurethane strap with a steel pin buckle and the watch comes with its Citizen presentation box and paperwork.
The dial on this watch is fantastic and then flipping it around and seeing a puffer fish put a big smile on my face! Then you have the pops of yellow that compliment the design perfectly and add a little something extra on the wrist, plus the crown on the left side is a nod to the true diving tool nature of the watch allowing it to be worn on the right wrist without the interference of the crown against the hand... It's a great watch for the money, no questions from me on that!
Citizen founded the Shokosha Watch Research Institute in 1918. The name originates from a pocket watch it produced in 1924. The Mayor of Tokyo, Mr Shimpei Goto, named the watch "CITIZEN", in the hopes the watch would become a worldwide success. In 1930 the name Citizen Watch Company was introduced. In 1959, Citizen launched Japan’s first fully waterproof watch, the Parawater. During the “quartz crisis,” they developed the Eco-Drive movement in 1976. This was one of the first solar-powered watches on the market. Continuing to innovate and expand its reach In 1993, Citizen introduced the world’s first multi-band atomic watch. It uses Atomic clocks around the world to synchronise to within two nanoseconds per day. Citizen makes the cases, the dial, the hands, and the movement in their Iida factory in Japan. Today the Citizen Group owns brands such as Alpina, Arnold & Son.
