Citizen celebrates land, sea, and air with insane new Promaster additions

Citizen announces 3 new watches to celebrate Promaster 35th anniversary

Citizen watches Promaster series

The Citizen Watches Promaster series is celebrating the big 3-5 this year, and they don’t look a day over 25 (perhaps they’ve incorporated retinol into their skincare routine?) To commemorate this milestone in true watch industry fashion, the equivalent of a big birthday party, Citizen Watches have announced the upcoming release of a trio of limited edition watches that each represent a different realm on earth: Sea (for fans of diving), Land (for outdoor adventurers), and Air (naturally, aviation lovers).

Citizen watches Promaster Mechanical Diver 200m

Promaster Mechanical Diver 200m

Limited to just 4,500 pieces, the Mechanical Diver 200m, also known as the Fujitsubo or Challenge Diver, has some major updates compared to the original design. It features a blue dial with a light blue bezel accent that will make you feel like you’re sailing on an early morning sea. Additionally, there is a Duratect Platinum surface treatment on the titanium case and bracelet. While this treatment definitely improves the scratch resistance, it also has aesthetic purposes in that it gives the metal a silver-toned finish that is highly pleasing to the eye. It still has the same dimensions as the original, at 41 x 12.3 x 48.5mm, with the Citizen watches automatic 9051 movement. To distinguish it from the original, this Mechanical Diver has a commemorative caseback celebrating Promaster’s 35th anniversary.

Citizen watches Promaster Eco-Drive Combination Watch

Promaster Eco-Drive Combination Watch

The Promaster Eco-Drive Combination Watch is constructed from stainless steel along with a dark gray Duratect coating. Measuring 43.9mm in diameter and 14mm in thickness, it features a sapphire crystal protecting the dial, a solid caseback, and 200 meters of water resistance. It features a signed crown and pushers on the right, along with another crown at 8 o’clock that acts as the internal compass bezel. This watch perfectly blends analog and digital functionalities like a 5-star chef and is run by the U680 movement. The movement is the first to introduce a high-resolution Memory in Pixel display, giving greater flexibility in date presentation compared to past ana-digi interfaces. Finishing off this Promaster Eco-Drive is either a stainless steel bracelet or a Cordura nylon strap, meaning it’s the most versatile watch of the 3.

Citizen watches Promaster Skyhawk A-T

Promaster Skyhawk A-T

The Citizen watches Air series addition, the Skyhawk A-T is certainly a top watch in the collection. It features a stainless steel case with a dark gray Duratect coating and Sakura Duratect finish on the crown and pushers that gives it a high-end rose gold, two-tone look. The case is an angular shape measuring a massive 46.7mm in diameter and 13.8mm in thickness, sitting on a stainless steel bracelet. While it has an aviation focus, it still comes with a water resistance of 200 meters and incorporates atomic radio-sync timekeeping through the Eco-Drive movement. The colors from this watch take inspiration from the “midnight sun” phenomenon, capturing the stunning pink hues from the polar night sky, where daylight persists throughout the night.

How much are the Citizen watches Promaster 35th anniversary editions?

Promaster Mechanical Diver 200m

The Promaster Mechanical Diver 200m is limited to 4,500 pieces with a price of $1,195. The Skyhawk A-T will have 5,600 watches produced, and the Promaster Combination watch 5,900 pieces, with both priced at $995. For more information, you can visit the official Citizen Watches website.

Rafael Nadal's long relationship with Richard Mille has yielded some truly impeccable watches, including the RM 027 Tourbillon that came out in 2010.

Nadal is seriously happy with the partnership, having said, "My relationship with Richard Mille, the company, as well as Richard as a person, has undoubtedly been a pillar of my sports career since 2010.

Jaeger-LeCoultre updates the Polaris line with new watches you’ll love
Jaeger-LeCoultre adds to Polaris Collection
Jaeger-LeCoultre Polaris Geographic

If you thought Jaeger-LeCoultre showed off everything in its arsenal at Watches and Wonders 2024, think again. Not long after debuting several Duomètre models, the brand has something else up its sleeve — expanding on the Polaris collection, which was first introduced in 2018 and took inspiration from its 1968 Memovox Polaris dive watch.

With summer just around the corner, we're all looking for a travel companion to accompany us on our trips. Traveling in the warmer months can mean all manner of things, from strolling the streets of Paris with a button-down and dress sneakers to mountain biking in the Alps on a rainy day in the mud; the perfect watch for traveling should be adaptable, not just for various hobbies but for sartorial purposes as well. Naturally, if you're hopping trains in Europe or driving a Jeep through the Outback, you'll want a watch that can tell you the time in multiple locations — but that's a given that any good watchmaker should keep in mind.
Jaeger-LeCoultre debuts the Polaris Geographic
Now, Jaeger-LeCoultre has debuted the Polaris Geographic and added two fresh color options to the current lineup. This new Polaris is not so cluttered, is easier to read than its past iterations, and is much sportier. It features the Caliber 939 movement, similar to the one seen in the 2020 Master Control Geographic, and comes with a 70-hour power reserve; not too shabby, right?
