Thought I'd post my latest addition
The watch was bought to my attention by John_D in my earlier post about the SKX033
Didn't really give it much attention to it back then, but once I started looking into it, I had to get my hands on one.
Was lucky to find a seller in the Philippines
IMO it is better than the SKX - love everything about it
I regulated the watch, replaced the crystal and gaskets, restored the case in keeping with the original
and added a new Promaster crown (far better than the plain original that came with the watch)
I do wish the case back was a little more embellished, but I guess the simplicity was a cost saving exercise by Citizen

Great pick up! I used to have the pepsi version of this and question constantly why I ever sold it...

I truly love this watch. The Pepsi version is beautiful too.
I think the watch is easier to get hold of in the USA but very rare in the UK.

I've been looking for a decent Pepsi, but they seem pretty scarce. FWIW, there are two versions of the pepsi - one with white dial text, and one with gold dial text. I had the gold - it was a great watch and the very subtle gold text lent to an overall warmer dial.

Yep.. Here are the alternatives I've found.
You are correct about the gold text one - think I've seen that too.
They are all nice, but I still prefer my black one.
Difficult sometimes until you have it on your wrist.
I have a Pepsi Dial on my Seiko 5M63-0A10 (SMY003P) - for a little variety...(y)
