New Citizen Signature Diver Spotted 2014

A new model of Citizen Signature Diver has been spotted.  I love these Signatures and I'm excited to see the line continued.  This one looks like an evolution of the Grand Touring line to make it diver styled.  I really like it and look forward to seeing more.

Review of Citizen Signature Diver BL1285-53L

The Citizen Signature line continues to be a great option for those looking for a watch with high end features that don’t break the bank. The Courageous Diver models were released a few years ago in 2011 in a variety of dial and movement options. They have since been reduced in selection, but price wise remain the most affordable option of the entire Signature line. There is a trade off in quality on the Diver model relative to the more expensive Signature models, however, the Divers still represent a good option for something nicer than an entry level Citizen or Seiko.

With the discontinuation of the Signature Chronograph, the Diver model (located in the Courageous line) is the only remaining sport Signature. Unlike the Chronograph model, much of the intricate work on the case and bracelet are lost on the diver, but the Diver still carries much of the Signature DNA.
