Citizen is turning back the clock to 1982 and taking inspiration for its latest Promaster dive watch from an original record-breaker.

The trio of colorful new Eco-Drive Diver 200m watches are based on Citizen’s 1982 diving watch which, with a water resistance of 1,300m, held the world record for a commercially available watch at the time.

The distinctive silhouette of the original watch, lug-free and circular with square bezel guards at each corner, is retained, as is the heavily sandblasted texture of the titanium case.

Citizen Revamps Record-Breaking Dive Watch From 1982

Of the three models, BN0220-16E is closest to the original 1982 watch with titanium grey case, black and gold bezel and textured charcoal grey dial. The other two are modern reimaginings, with blue and green camouflage dials, color-matched rubber straps and darker Duratect DLC cases.

The new solar-powered watches maintain the 46.5mm diameter of the original watch but use a slightly thinner Duratect Super titanium case for increased comfort.

The three watches drop on July 1 at Citizen retailers, priced $3,980 HK ($512 USD).
