More than 350 watches has come and gone during the years.

Read and enjoy!
No 229 - Citizen Ecozilla BJ8051-05E
The Ecozilla sure does look like a beast. It’s brutally big and on the
verge of being unwearable. To me it is not aesthetically appealing in any way.
It is ugly. Without the strap adapters from Suppaparts it is even uglier on its
original integrated rubber. With the suppa adapters it wears bigger but it is more
versatile and gives you the option to choose any rubber strap you want. I wore
mine on the classic N.D. Limits original Citizen rubber. It got to stay with me
for a few weeks in the summer of 2014 before it moved on. Far from being one a favorite.

An engraving seen on many other dive watches. Not very unique.
Martin and I on a beer break during pike fishing in early August 2014.
BBQ in late July. Later the Ecozilla got to go on a midnight swim.
