    I missed out on this deal, dammit. But, Iím not a big fan of rubber dive watch straps since mine never get wet. My everyday watches are Seiko automatics with bracelets.

    I wonder if they do a bracelet version of these?

    Iíve not seen one, but Iím sure a jeweler can fit one?

    The rubber straps are useful in scuba diving, in particular if you wear a wet suit. At depth of 100í you get a fair bit of compression from the water pressure (4ATM) in the neoprene (it gets thinner)

    So the band may end up loose during a dive, especially if it is a square profile. The Citizen rubber band design with the 2 ĎSí shapes on both sides, tends to help (some) since you can stretch the ĎSí a bit tighter at the surface before a dive. At the bottom, your suit compresses but the watch retains tightness.

    Bracelets generally do not have this feature (except Rolex Submariners, which has a special clasp for this).

    Today's price is only $10 higher @123. Still seems like a fair deal. Link

    If you look at the reviews for the blue faced model, there's a picture of what one looks like with a bracelet.

    Apparently the packaging for the blue one is "different."

    Yeah, thatís how mine came in 1996. Packed in a Scuba Cylinder. Kind of a Citizen Dive Watch thing I guess lol.

    I bought one of these as well. Plan to use it when long sleeves are necessary (suits, executive visits, etc) since my Sunto doesn't fit under a cuff.

    Can anyone recommend a decent strap? I bought a cheap 5-ring Zulu on Amazon but it's far too short to route properly. I'm going to cut off the extra piece with 2 rings to convert it to a 3 ring, but I'm wondering if there is a better option.
