That one came out of the blue.... out of Zales to be precise laughing

After all my bitching about Eco-Drive... I couldn't resist that one Crazy! Loco!Rolling on the floor laughing my a.. off

I actually spotted it saturday... its look attracted me right away.
I always like the promaster's functions, but never like the IMO overkill design of the "pilot" watches. Too big, integrated bracelet, dial too busy, dont like the color combos of blue/yellow or black/orange, etc...
That one is just plain looking even though the dial is still quite busy.
I love the metallic blue chapter ring. Great contrast of the sub dial and cool reverse LCD display.

Got home and for the last 3 days tried to find it online... nowhere to be found I am confused I had to go back yesterday. Tried it on again and WIS Honeymoon
The watch had no tag, no manual, etc. I played with it a bit, figured out everything worked ok. Cut a deal for $200 with taxes.
I figured I'd find the instruction on line, which I did (cal. C652).


This is the perfect dress/sporty watch for me. Looks good and wear great at 42mm x 13mm. Having three permament time zone is also great for work. I just love it WIS Honeymoon

As far as the functions:
2 o'clock is permament UTC
10 o'clock is 24hr time display
6 o'clock is the function dial activated by the main crown
4 o'clock LCD is the function dial: 2d time zone, calendar, chrono, timer, 3 alarms
7 o'clock LCD names the function or the city of reference

This is definitively a traveller's watch as all time/alarm function can be set for any city in memory. There is also a way to customize one time zone with the city name of your choice Thumbs up!

Even though I found the caliber. The watch itslef remains a mystery as I can not still identify it online.
I searched the marking on the case back and found nothing Eek!
Here are the markings if someone knows how to look up Citizen data base: C652-S082072 / 281160665 / GN-4W-S

Thanks for watching!

And keep your eyes open for deals, even at Zales wink
