OK, did a lot of digging on google and WUS forums looking at Citizen Diver models… Its a Citizen Professional Divers Series BM0560-57E, discontinued.
Wan’t really a bid deal ti find out except I need a part for it, and I DO like to know Exactly what I have, in case I need parts, or info etc down the road.
And, on the point of parts; I wanted to know the model to add to the numbers I do have, so I know I am giving Citizen customer service all the info I can, to get the right thing from them…
I want to see if I can get a single replacement link for the band.
Its sized 99.9% Perfectly for me as is, snug but not too tight… Unless I’m working/moving, flexing my hands a lot. I wore it for two days out and about socially, and some light work, light snowmobiling. No problem. But a day of really moving around today, and it got pretty tight.
I now remember discovering this once before, some years ago with another snug watch, that my wrists swell a bit when warmed up working, and from just the flexing of muscles too.. And then a solid bracelet watch band gets uncomfortable. Not painful, but annoying. (maybe an ache sometimes too like today, thats what reminded me of it)
I did some measurements; The clasp adjustment is at the longest of 3 notches. A single link is the same length as those 3 notches too. So, If I add a single link, then drop it two notches at the clasp, it will be just a tad longer, say 1/8″ or maybe 3/16″ at the most… I really just need that little bit of extra play; Not enough to let it slop around on my wrist, but enough to keep it from biting into me when I am flexed/warmed up .
A whole replacement bad is easy to find, from $15 cheapies to $60 for a Citizen brand replacement. I don’t want a whole replacement band though, I want to keep this one with the scratches, wear, and character that my buddy warchild put onto it. So I’ve been searching for a place to order replacement links, but they all list by model number, which isn’t printed on the watch itself. Thus my looking for model info.
I’ve then also read that Citizen is good about sending replacement links free of charge for a couple, only charging if you want more than 4 or 5 of them. Will see what they say though, since I’m not the original owner of the watch. –I don’t mind paying for a link or two, but it would be nice not to have to.
Honestly, I’m gonna give it a couple days to see if thats the issue, or if maybe my wrists are just ”off”, tender/sore from the snowmobiling I did Sat. I’m not really used to that anymore, even though it was very light ridding, I might have aggravated something and thats why the watch was so much tighter, and my wrist acheing while doing things today. But I was sitting here dead bored, had run out of things to do, so I went ahead and did the research i needed for it. Shall see if I actually need to do order it or not.
Meh. I’m rambling on again ain’t I?
Better shut up now.
