1. Best New 2022 Watch from CITIZEN: Promaster Diver Automatic Super Titanium | NB6021-17E
The Citizen Promaster Diver Automatic Super Titanium Watch is an iconic watch reimagined for 2022. Inspired by the 1977 Challenge Diver, the new Promaster Diver Automatic pays homage to the original. Made from Super Titanium™ (titanium with Citizen’s own Duratect coating for increased resistance), the watch is both light-weight and durable. Five times harder than stainless steel, it is the perfect material for a diver’s watch. Firstly, the 41mm case has a black uni-directional elapsed time bezel. Similarly, the dial is also black with a white minute track around the outer edge (view blue dial version here). Additionally, the lume-filled hands and indices allow for visibility in poor light. A sapphire crystal with a flat-cut top protects the dial. Finally, water resistant to 20 bars (200m), the watch has a screwed caseback. Equipped with an automatic movement, the Promaster Diver Automatic Super Titanium Watch is accurate to an average of -10 to +20 seconds. Also, it has a 42 hour power reserve. Covered by a fantastic Five Year Warranty, this is the ideal watch to accompany you on your next diving adventure. Price: £695.
