Good size, automatic movement. Anybody heard anything about these sumbitches?

From what I have gleaned from a cursory search these are for the Asian market only , have some sort of hacking Miyota, are in the 300.00 area and are called the Fugu (pronunciation not clear but I know how I say it)

The crown placement looks like a real pain in the ass.

It could just as well be named after a flounder or a herring, but a blowfish is equally poorly fit to name a watch after it.

Looks decent enough to me, and heaven know those are a lot of color variations.

These are listed on the US site as "new":

My gettin'-old BN0000-04H is one of the best bangs for the buck I think I've ever found as a collector - rock solid, a legit diver, an runs awesome. Thing must be pretty old and I got it in a trade.

The second link shows a watch made in Citizen's Super Titanium, which is Duratech coating with some other shit over highly polished and finished titanium--I believe that Citi's using the Super Titanium moniker now instead of Duratech. The result is, honestly, like having a sapphire covered watch. To use the Merm's own words, it doesn't scwatch. I had a Citi Promaster Sky that I got as third owner, and although there was a fairly large ding in the side of the case--titanium is, after all, a soft metal, no matter how it's treated--I was unable to put a scratch anywhere on the watch while owning it. Not on the clasp, not on the bracelet, not on the case. It was like Seiko's version on the Transocean, although the Promaster Sky was also almost freakishly light.

As of now, I've yet to see anything online about Citi's Duratech coating wearing off of any watch out there in use. If this is the case, then it means that there's no real lifespan for the treatment, and it could, perhaps, continue to protect the surface of the metal for many years.

Typical Citizen stuff. They make incredible bang for the buck divers. Agree that the left side crown is not the easiest thing to use for a righty.
