Default CITIZEN SUPER TOUGH ECO-drive Promaster BJ8024-08E 200m

I am thinking of pulling the trigger on this Citizen Eco-Drive Promaster Diver. This will be my 1st Eco-Drive watch. Any feedbacks or opinions on this model will be greatly appreciated. Picture courtesy of the seller.



Thank you.

Cheers,
Jeremiah

I just picked one up last month off ebay, it's lighter than I thought it would be. It seems to be pretty rugged although I haven't really tested that. The lume is pretty good. The actual dial/face seems a bit small when compared to the rest of the watch. I'm still up in the air whether its a keeper or not.

Does it have a sapphire?
I know that from the radio controlled Eco drive pilots watches, there were sapphire and hardened mineral versions. I know about the discussions of brittleness of sapphire, but if that is critical I prefer plastic. Hardlex and co. are neither fish nor fowl to me.

Cheers.
