About this deal

Part of Citizen's Nighthawk premium collection, this is the perfect watch for any aspiring pilot or aeronautical fan. At the center of the dial is perhaps my favorite aspect of the watch in terms of clever ways to organize information. Like other Citizen Eco-Drive calibers, the B877 is capable of charging itself with either natural or artificial light, and it will stay running in total darkness for up to six months at a time once fully charged. At its core, the Nighthawk is a dual-timezone pilot’s watch with a slide rule bezel and solar Eco-Drive movement.

The crown at 3 also screws down, facilitating the 200m water resistance, and is adorned with a Nighthawk logo. Then I would push in the crown to the first detent and spin the crown clockwise to adjust the hour hand to my local time.While Seiko prefers to push its Kinetic range of watches, Citizen decided to capitalize on its strength in solar powered timepieces. Tapering from 22mm at the lugs to 20mm where it connects to an incredibly chunky signed pin-buckle, the strap itself is fairly thick; however, the material is decently soft and comfortable right out of the box, with very little break-in time required.

The Citizen Promaster Nighthawk is a modern and feature-packed professional pilot’s watch that pairs a dual time zone display with a solar-powered movement and ample water resistance to create a rugged and highly-capable timepiece that’s designed for crossing time zones and traveling the skies. The other crown at the 8 o’clock position rotates the inner flight rule bezel but isn’t as nicely finished as the main crown. As an ex-pat living in western Canada, I find the second time-zone feature particularly useful and the watch has already been quite a talking point after only a week, lots more comments than my old Seiko Kinetic Auto-Relay from 2003. The dial itself is a gloss black that has a slight purple tinge to it, which I believe is due to the solar-energy collecting surface.I think I preferred the handset on the previous generation but legibility is excellent, especially given the relative complexity of the dial. Also, you may find a lot of high quality secondary watch in Batutulis Market,where you can find Swiss or old Seiko model (ex. No, because I have another Nighthawk with a white colored inner bezel (pictured left, above) – the BJ7017-16F.
