If you follow the show Deadliest Catch, this might be of interest to you. My long time friend has worked on the show since it started. He has mostly worked on the Cornelia Marie with Capt. Phil Harris. I was lucky to have met Capt. Phil a couple of times. He was a really nice guy, and really loved life. My friend is one of the main camera men/producers of the show along with his older brother. I was fishing with my friend about three years ago when I noted he was sporting a new watch. A Citizen Promaster 200m. When I saw his new watch, I told him I was glad he a cool automatic diver and it was the first time I had seen one in the flesh. These really are cool modern watches. Later, his is wife bought him another watch for his birthday. I asked him about his Citizen and he said I could have it. I was stoaked!!! What is cool about this watch is that it has seen some pretty cool action over the years. He wore this watch for the last three, perhaps 4 years while working on the Bering Sea for Discovery Channel's Deadiest Catch. It has seen a lot, for sure!!! I had to have the watch serviced when I got it as it was not working. It is now serviced and a pretty cool part of my collection. Just thought I'd share.

It is a great watch. I have the blue dialed version, and the 8203 is a fantastic movement. Far and away my most accurate mechanical (well, my newly arrived NY0040 is right up there too---same engine). I don't know what the service cost you, but my guess is you made out like a bandit.

Cool story and cool watch!!!
I try to watch the show all the time and see they are just getting to the point where Capt. Phil is about to leave the show, if you get my point. I liked him and was sorry to hear he had passed away.

Very nice!


I worked as a student assistant for cameramen/-women for some years, doing all the cable pulling and assembling all the technical stuff. A lot of the cameramen and assistants wear Citizen Promasters or Aqualands. Of course, they hardly ever get the action shown in that show. Enjoy your new watch!

I usually hate the term 'tool watch', as it is so often abused and applied to huge chunky squillion dollar divers that haven't seen any action beyond the courtroom or country club (JLC Navy Seals Beverley Hills LE, anyone :D :D :D :D :D ). But this watch is the real 'tool watch' deal.

Yeah, a real tool watch. So let me add a couple more:

And to add insult to injury, Boschett, Henson, etc are the "boutique brands". ::)
