after quite a few quiet months on every front i kept coming back to this citizen auto diver.although i have a few divers already that see frequent wear i just really liked this one. a 10% voucher from ebay & that was enough to break my resistance.i think it is good value at £135 with the discount.sorry about the stock photo but its the best i can do until i get my paws on it.

classic chunky diver love the splash of orange, and with a 10% e bay discount which I think applies till 8 pm tonight ( code perfectten ) makes it a good buy, I was so tempted by numerous buys with todays discount , but in the end I went with a car buffer :laugh:

well the watch finally arrived this morning,looking great but when i went to set the time the second hand had a mind of its own moving erratically around the face.:(  i have decided to return it hopefully for a normal functioning replacement.

I have seen a few of these about and have been very tempted myself I think it is something about the orange hour hand on black dial that appeals.

I think an erratic seconds hand can be a feature of the Miyota 82** series of movements. It's all to do with the way the seconds hand is driven & it doesn't usually indicate a problem with the movement itself. It's a shame though as not all the 82** powered watches do it & it spoils an otherwise nice watch :( I'm pretty sure that I used to own the black cased version of this watch - that was a good looking watch too but the stainless steel version knocks the spots off it :)

It's a real disappointment when a watch - or anything else for that matter - doesn't live up to your expectations & I hope the replacement is fault/issue free  :thumbs_up:

Was it doing this as you were setting the time with the crown out ? A couple of my Citizens with the non hacking movement behave similar, and always have done.

replacement arrived very quickly & all is well :)

Glad everything worked out with your watch.  I've never seen that Citizen model before.  Really nice design and love the orange minute hand.  Enjoy!  :king:
