Just came in this morning! I have to say it was well worth the wait. From notice of ready to ship and to my door has been about 4 days. All items included, watch box, tools, straps and watch itself top notch! Was very easy to size the bracelet... Now hoping there are no issues with this Myota 9015 movement, but so far so good! One of the nicest watches I've ever owned... Fit, finish, functionality, etc... I'm sure you guys will see more popping up. It's all good!

Gawjuz...simply gawjuz.

What do you think of the rubber strap? I'm probably putting that on mine (when it arrives) so I'd like to hear your thoughts on that too. Thanks.

I love mine. I planned on this being a strap watch as I have a canvas and with the hirsch rubber and a green iso I have plenty of options, but the bracelet is a star. Really solid.

Rubber strap and leather one are both nice but the bracelet is so nice I'm wearing like that. No plans to ditch the bracelet!

Oh yeah wow, can see why you are so happy BigTime ! :clapping-hands-abov

This watch seems to be on such a high level with everything. Just the look with that amazing green accent theme is outstanding, and catches your eye. Really allows you to take note of every detail, and appreciate what Prometheus did even more. :eek: Whoa, and check out the packaging, and extras !!! A huge congrats here BT ! Enjoy !

Congratulations on a beautiful piece!
Any lume shots you can share with us?
Is the bezel sapphire by the way?
Sapphire bezel yes. You can tell domed the Crystal is very thick (probably 5mm) as would be necessary for a 3500m/11500m depth rating!
I'm sure the green lume isn't as bright as the standard white lume but that's not a deal breaker for me...

Impressions Update 5 days later...

First impressions are always just that so I'd like to follow up after almost a week of ownership...

Positives:
So far it's been running non-stop either on my wrist or on the winder and at about+3 sec/day which is excellent...

Negatives:
The fit between the bracelet and the solid end links could be better... There is a slight edge which could have been smothed out by tapering the end link to the thickness of the first bracelet link...

The crystal, despite the anti reflective coating on the inside still exhibits quite a bit of reflections but that's more a symptom of the thickness and the fact that it is domed... Flat would be better but would probably compromise the depth rating.

The color of the green... I really thought it would be just a bit more "mint" than "lime." It falls somewhere in between and I'm not sure if I can fully warm up to it but I'm trying!

That's all for now!

The 9015 is a great engine. You should have no issues with longevity and function.

I really think that will be next purchase. I have been looking at the Prometheus. It looks like a great tool diver watch. You can't beat the Citizen 9015. Enjoy that beauty.

Regards,
Stan

Nice homage to the IWC Aquatimer.
