Greetings to All from Missouri,

I have my eye on a Citizen BT0000-58L, E310 movement. In reading every description I can find on the web, I see no mention of this model having a screw down crown. However, when thumbing through on-line pdf files of the owner's manual, there is information about how to use the screw down crown.

I cross referenced the owner's manual on the Citizen USA with the Citizen New Zealand web sites (the models shown have slightly different reference numbers) and the manuals are the same.

Although not the "deal breaker" for me, I have always enjoyed this feature on a watch. Any information from a current owner or someone who has first hand knowledge of this Citizen watch would be appreciated.

I have a black dial 3100 (regular version, not LE), and I can tell you that the crown does not screw down. It is a push-pull type, but it is very secure. I don't think many "dressier" watches have them since they aren't the type if watch one would wear while swimming, anyway. I like the idea of a screw down crown too, but it's really not needed for most watches, and does not affect the water resistancy either way.

I'm not sure why the owners manual would mention a screw down crown, except that I think it is designed more as a manual for the movement rather than a specific watch. Although, I don't know of any other Citizens that use the movement.

One thing I would suggest, if you get the watch, is to follow the online video tutorial Citizen has on their web site for setting the watch. I could not figure it out via the manual, but using the video I was able to do it very easily.
