    Steady on, it's never been $599. $299 is standard, $199 pretty regularly.

    does Starbuy sell anything at RRP … or is like the proverbial rug store

    •  

      No they don't.

      One of my pet peeves with posted Starbuy bargains. The deals are normally good but comparing savings to RRP is a bit misleading.

    •  

      No but but brick and mortar stores sell them at RRP. It's good to go look at it in the stores then order it from Starbuy.

    It's safe to assume it was last sold at $299 Title needs fixing to either "RRP $599" (quite pointless), or "was $299" which attracts a lot less upvotes, unfortunately.

    RRP is meaningless rubbish

    Great price for a very good ISO certified diver. Its been at this price a few times lately.

    Starbuy doesnt sell it at $599 but that is the RRP and a lot of stores do, but still a good bargain over the "normal" 299 price.

      Yes, it's the "RRP", but OP currently says "Was $599", when it never was $599 through Starbuy. Geddit?

        Its been corrected, revision was done almost an hour ago.

    Also great to see the Pepsi variant (NY0086-83L) at the same price again

    Any comparison between this and the Pepsi dial or is it essentially the same watch?

      It's the same watch with different colour bezel and dial. Bracelet on this one is not so good compared to other Citizen watches at the same price.

    8000 series does not hack and mineral glass

      This is a 200m auto dive watch with hand winding & screw down crown from a reputable watch making brand with 5yr warrranty for $199 delivered.

      I mean sure if you want sapphire & hacking then spend more & you'll get more or buy from a lesser known brand.

      Most Patek movements don't have hacking seconds either. Complete garbage /s

        Rolex Daytona lacks date complication therefore this is better.

    i can understand the appeal,of dive watch automatic vs battery quartz to overcone the hassle of pressure testing after battery replacement ….. but citizen ecodrives dive watches are more accurate , never need a battery change and run for mths and mths even without light …. auto watch don’t wear for 36 hrs and you need to set the time …..

    i have many watches, auto, ecodrives , seiko solar and battery quartz so not a zealot for a particular technology but i find my ecodrives get the most use because i can swap between watches and not worry about setting the time …..
    oldest solar powered watch i have still working is over 20 years old ….just sits on window sill as i’m curious when it will stop working ….

    Would any of you watch afficionados know where on earth I can get a 22mm antique/ dark copper coloured band from (for a Citizen watch)?
    I have spent weeks looking- tried all the online Chinese outlets, Etsy, the eBay's, the Amazon's, watch and spares sellers, second-hand; Nothing!
    Hundreds of rose gold or brown but no copper.
