    Good price. May I suggest adding Eco-Drive WR200 to the title?

    Completely different watches but would you get this or a G-shock? Just need a casual watch.

      Casual? You need a Hublot or Panerai

        Tomorrow's lotto result might make my definition of casual same as yours.

      I like watches and have a fair few, including both Citizen Eco drives and a Gshock. I'll wear the Gshock when I'm likely to smack it into something (think building / working on cars) and I don't want to damage the watch or whatever I hit. I have three Eco drive Citizens, and they're pretty much my go to watches. I would specifically recommend the titanium versions, but all are great for what you pay.

      If you're buying it just for practical reasons, the Gshock is rugged and will serve you well. If you're thinking of it as a fashion accessorie as well, you'll get a lot more mileage out of the Citizen.

      EDIT: I'd also add that I bought at least 2 - 3 of my watches from Starbuy and they've been great.

      Casual? Can't go past the Casio f91W! The king of watches.

      Completely a matter of opinion but I think the G-shocks just look silly

  •  

    That's a sexy watch. Been keeping my eye on it and StarBuy usually sells it for $239 (which is really amazing factoring in local Sydney stock and genuine 5 year Citizen warranty) so they've knocked a further $50 off that to make it an irresistible buy.
    I have 4 Citizen Eco-Drives, all bought from StarBuy.
    Note I currently own the BJ7075-02E and this one looks incredibly similar. If I had a spare $189 lying around I would've jumped on this in a heartbeat!

    Good find, more interested in why Starbuy believes this watch RRP for $625 though.

      • +2 votes

        That link you just pasted do not have the exact same watch. All Google for that watch comes back at under $280.

        Even without discount, Starbuy is selling the watch for $239: https://www.ebay.com.au/i/201674710651?chn=ps&dispItem=1

        I am not buying from a merchant that actually doesn't know the actual price of their own products.

        •  

          Fair enough. My point was it is within the standard price range for Promaster Air. Without any discount, $599 is lowest so $625 seems credible. The Citizen Australia website doesn't know this model.

          Isn't the first 'R' in RRP for recommended? They might never sell it for that but it is an accurate description of what Citizen suggest they price it.

        •  

          Hi Sebastian. The RRPs are not set by StarBuy but, in this instance, by Citizen. Our selling price is however low we can possibly go. Thanks

        •  

          @Star Jewels:
          Thank you for your reply.
          Curious, the RRP was set how long ago by Citizen? Although I do appreciate you replying, I just find the RRP is deceptive when that the watch is no longer carried by Citizen.
          I am querying it cause I actually send the above to my brother who collects watches, thinking it was a good deal for him to tell me that RRP is BS.
          Again, it's rather disturbing when you do not know the updated price of your own merchandise..

        • +1 vote

          @Sebastian: Pleasure. The RRPs are set by Citizen once only when they release the watch. The RRP does not change. We dont use the RRP for any specific purpose. Being a deep discounter, we will buy in quantity and aim to sell at the lowest possible price. The Recommended Retail Price is no more than a recommendation and its entirely up to us to sell it at the price where we think we will be able to sell the highest quantity at a reasonable margin. However the RRP does not actually change as its only set once and is not updated. Our prices will change depending on competition and how desperate we are to move the item so the RRP really is not a factor in how we price our stock.

          Hope that helps.

          Thanks

      Citizen's South African website shows the equivalent of $742 … https://www.citizenwatchshop.co.za/promaster-air-jz1065-05e....

      Citizen has very high levels of RRPs, as when these watches are released, that's what they sell them at. If you look around at other sites that sell watches (locally these tend to be jewellery stores or specialist occupation-related stores), you'll see that the prices there are closer to the RRP. For instance:
      450AUD
      185USD
      224USD
      StarBuy can sell these watches at a massive discount as they are able to source them specially.
      Probably the best source for Citizen watches hands down :)

    Worth $189, but still looks cheap quality.

  •  

    IF I was tempted to buy a Quartz watch I would prefer this https://www.massdrop.com/buy/seiko-prospex-solar-ssc-watch price is in USD and doesnt include shipping but more my cup of tea. In general though I have never timed any kind of race and am not likely to visit many of the pwprld time cities. I generally dont like 'busy' dials on my watches. I have jumped on the Glycine Combat Sub deal at MassDrop though, looks like a bargain to me.

    "designed to power your passion and unleash your potential." Does this inspirational promise come with a money back guarantee?

    •  

      And all these years i thought it was chronic procrastination and lack of initiative that was holding me back. Apparently my continual underachievement in life was due to not having one of these on the end of my arm!

    You can kill people with this thing.

    Thanks op. Got one .. cheers

  •  

    I'm so tempted, only thing stopping me is the wrist band if it metal band it would be awesome.

    Really nice watch, to bad its a little big for my tiny wrist

    I don't want to be the one to say it but I probably won't buy a real watch again, I know smart watches will never match the quality of a real mechanical watch but the convenience and features of smart is so good now. I have a very nice watch I used to only wear to work, now I just wear my smart watch all the time. My only gripe is battery life but hopefully that'll improve one day…

    Holds bin lid up to deflect the negs.

      That proves you are fundamentally wicked. Have a plus-vote.

      Smart watch buyers are a completely different market in my view, especially when you are talking about mechanical (automatic) watch enthusiasts.

      All those watches mainly do is show the date & time.
