Post Purchase Evaluation

A good quality timepiece at a affordable price, Citizen 200m Diver NY2300 should be in everyone affordable wishlist. It is a diver with the look of a classical and elegant watch.

Most watch enthusiastic would prefer the Seiko Skx007 or 009 over this. Without doubt, the Seiko are a little better in terms of build quality, bigger in size & has a more aggressive diver look. But Citizen Ny2300 make up on this by offering a cheaper price and a more classy looking dial compare to Seiko. It sits smaller and comfortable on your wrist compare to the bigger & aggressive looking Seiko, which is a little too loud for my liking. The watch was intentionally bought as a dress watch as oppose to a diving watch, so the classical and elegant dial and the smaller size is preferred. The Pepsi color scheme is a added-bonus where it can be worn to match a more colorful dressing on certain occasion.

With the cheaper price tag and the more classical and elegant look, my vote goes to Citizen NY2300 for a Pepsi diver.
