Citizen Diver NY2300; a daily wear!

Citizen Diver Viva Forever....

"Hasta Manana,
Always be mine

Viva forever, I'll be waiting
Everlasting, like the sun
Live forever,
For the moment
Ever searching for the one " 
                                               Spice Girls

All of the sudden, in the right mood... took this Citizen NY2300 off my wrist and start taking mugshots of it. This is one of my daily wear; a workhorse that accompany me seeing my high and low.... Bought this in early 2000's while trying to build up my own business.....

It suits my daily purpose as a casual wear as it is not over bulky or luxury or delicate or complicated.... All I need is a reliable watch that tell me the accurate time with ease. Nothing fancy, nothing extravagance but a good piece of old technology......

I first wrote about Citizen NY2300 HERE..... The only different between this one and that, is the colour of the bezel and the dial. In this case, both are in tuxedo black. 

NY2300 is a 40mm solid stainless steel watch. A budget entry level automatic watch full of features. It has a bilateral rotating bezel with mineral crystal. 

The crown is screw locked with the protect crown guard. It has a scuba ability to impressive 200 meters. This watch is factory fitted with rubber diver band. 

The back case is a screw in solid stainless steel... I love the fact that it is flat and without any decoration. For a casual wear, it is all about comfortable and practicality.  

NY2300 is powered by Citizen Miyolta cal 8200. It is the same movement that powered the Citizen Autozilla, but this one is in the raw form. Apart from time, maybe the essential function of a watch is the day-date.... this watch gives you all; so what-else are you demanding? 

Revised December 2015

Decided to replace the rubber strap with a silicone one. More comfortable to wear and with a double push released clasp.
