For those days when a “sports watch” just won’t cut it, Citizen Promaster Dive Watches mix modern functionality with classic looks.

And for those days off the bike and you find yourself underwater, they can alert you to rapid ascents and serve as max depth reminders.

Dive watches are still a relatively modern accomplishment. The Citizen Promaster Dive watch exemplifies the achievement with construction that encases delicate parts within a sealed, stainless case. Classic and modern styles with the latest dive-specific technology will handle just about any above-sea-level adventures, too.

Modern Function, Classic Styling

Citizen has made watches for more than a century and has earned iconic status among watch enthusiasts and collectors who value durability, function and good design. That is, in part, due to the brand’s innovations.

In 1970, Citizen was the first to use titanium — then a relatively new, space-age material — in its X-8 Chronometer.

In 1996, Citizen introduced its Eco-Drive technology. This powers the company’s watches using any light source, not just sunlight. This removed the need for a battery and thus the chance of running out of power at an inopportune time — such as a dive.

It also adds a component of sustainability to the watch with Eco-Drive giving it an impressively long run time – up to six months on a full charge in complete darkness.

The following Citizen Promaster dive watches are all powered by Eco-Drive technology even today. And they vary in the number of dive features, depth of water resistance, and styles.

The ISO compliance notes refer to the industry standards for reporting water resistance claims.

Diving Deeper

Citizen Promaster Dive watches are not only high-performing but also affordable in the competitive watch market. The most expensive of the bunch tops out at just over $500, while the most affordable clocks in near $260.

And each is backed by a 5-year warranty, with an extra year added if you register your watch through Citizen.

Citizen also employs the use of atomic timekeeping with its world multiband models. This radio control technology updates your watch, thanks to a time signal from an atomic clock. The margin of error is one second every 100,000 years. That’s tight timing.

Really, I am the first to post DiveRumor. Any watch can be used while bike riding, but this is pure clickbait stuff. As typical, when a small venture sells out, it’s no longer supporting small business.

And yet the first page is littered with mostly small business. Feeble attempt at a burn, Joenomad. I prefer Omega anyway. Carry on.

Why not mention the Citizen Promaster Tough series, much more suitable for biking AND diving? They are also ISO rated at 200M.

I understand that you (Bikerumor) have to sell ads, but I think you should make it much clearer than just having a byline of “Sponsored Post.” Maybe a disclaimer at the top and bottom that it’s a paid for post? Aside from any FTC guidance that may exist, it seems like a fair thing to do for your readers – right now, at least to me, it just feels deceptive (and a little dirty). And it does seem like trying to keeps ads at least somewhat relevant to cycling. The Thule luggage ad a week ago seemed a little out of place, but more ads for dive watches and other random things will make me less inclined to visit the site at all.

Funny. I have worn a Tag (automatic) in about 25 IM distance races. My bezel fell off of the face in Mirror Lake at Ironman Lake Placid in I think 2004…still wear the steel band watch in most races. Money well spent.

@Joenomad: Hey man, they’re just trying to make a buck. Nobody doing an online cycling blog is exactly getting rich. Cut them some slack and don’t get all worked up and dramatic over something so trivial.

@Joenomad I feel you, but that’s capitalism for you. Though I have to say I prefer even pseudo-editorial ad content for harmless bling like this to those bloody SUV ads being pushed in my face whenever I visit on something that doesn’t have an adblocker.

Plus one Boom’s comment. Also I know a ton of bike guys that are watch guys. I’m not necessarily a citizen guy (more seiko, breitling, rolex and omega) but they have a tone of heritage behind the brand and most of all they’re really tough watches that would be a good pairing to ride with. I ride with most my watches but one of these n a quartz..bomber and if something does happens its cost effective to repair.

3T – I can tell you first hand that a Submariner does not like the chatter on a Tri Bike…the Tag does not care. The Omega is not as good as the Tag. Recently got a Shinola (auto) as a fashion watch ($1500 or so)….well, the band does not even stay clipped….sheesh….for me, Tag!

“Dive watches are still a relatively modern accomplishment”, they’ve been around since late 50s early 60s.
