Default Citizen promaster aqualand 3745-e70022

Hi guys how are we?
I've just joint this forum in the hope one of you clever experts could help me out? I've just been given this watch from my father and am looking to gain more info on it? Age? Is it collectable? Value?
The watch is in near to perfect condition as he hardly wore it! It even has its instruction manual with it too.
I'm not great on these things but thought it would be worth getting it checked out.

Aloha ,
That Aqualand Diver is very collectable and many still have them in their
collections. Good watch and very dependable and comfortable to use.
These 3745's are very good to have but battery changes have to be done
or damage will come about.
My name is ... Louis / LongBike..... and collect a lot of Aqualands also.
Aloha Louis / LongBike

Aloha ?
Thanks for your reply, I really don't know much about watches but a friend of mine seems to think these Ones may be pretty rare? Is that right? I've tried looking online for others the same but there seems to be none for sale anywhere except one site where there are two the same and are in the thousands? Although I'm dubious this is correct ?

i have a blue one like yours for sale on the forum for 90 euro's. One in mint condition and box is worth more but not a whole lot more than 200 i guess.

Yeah I've seen quite a few blue ones advertised elsewhere too but none of these exact type?! There are old eBay posts selling them years ago but none now!
This is a recent post I've seen for exactly the same watch! There seems to be something about these that make them pretty rare and collectable!?

The fact that people ask a ridiculous price does not mean it is worth that much. I can ask a milion $ for my aqualand, but it wont sell.

This is one just like yours sold for 250$

sold for 125$

well said, koekoek. it's important to distinguish between price and value

I have four of these with different dial colors. I will probably never sell them. I had two of this exact watch and did sell one. In my opinion, they are great watches to collect and they are great to wear but not extremely valuable unless they are "new old stock". And even then some folks ask way to much for them. I would suggest that you have the watch serviced and enjoy the gift from your dad.

Ive seen ebay post for "new old stock" amounting to 690$ per piece. They are legendary indeed but better service this one...It looks great!
