This is what I call a Tool Watch

CITIZEN Professional Diver 300m
aka Eco-Zilla
Eco-drive Caliber B873
Titanium case
At my usual watch haunt, the shop owner gave me a very good price (that I could not refuse) for his last titanium Eco-Zilla. Lightweight and having the cool gun-metal professional look, I could not resist.
I was initially skeptical of the Ecozilla, thinking that the stock rubber strap will be very uncomfortable. But I was wrong! It wears so well and sits ever so balanced. Probably the light-weight plays a big part too. A very masculine watch with that professional tool look to it. The buckle is a double loop through making this watch very secured on the wrist. However it is slightly difficult to remove but not a show-stopper.

I was just planning to get one myself and suddenly I saw this update on your this destiny? :d BTW, I am also a member (although mostly I just lurk) from WUS and SCWF.

Great pictures especially of the caliber. Mind telling me the price of the beast?

An easy watch to wear. I paid about US480 brand new at a brick and mortar shop. You should be able to get cheaper online.

The caliber pic is not mine, I found it on the net.

Good luck!

Hi I'm planning to get an exact same piece and I stumbled on your blog too. Can you advice me on a good place to get one from a brick and mortar shop in sg?

You can try Bras Basah complex and The Bencoolen.

I have an ecozilla, lovely watch. Where can I find a replacement strap? I don't want to go with suppa adaptors, I want an original rubber strap.

Citizen Service Centre should have them in stock. Post a WTB on, the guys should be able to help source one for u.
