I'm looking at a few Citizen Aqualands, and I cannot figure out the pricing, or which model I should choose.

I realize some of these models are shaped differently, and I would prefer the non-circular model, but some of these come in 100$ cheaper than what appear to be identical models on Amazon.

JV0030-01E - 468.00 (Odd Shape)
JV0010-08E - 468.00 (Circular)

JV0000-10F - 360.00 (Circular)
JV0020-12F - 360.00 (Odd Shape)

What gives?

I thought one set might be Titanium, but if it is, I can't find that info anywhere.

Also, do these sell well on the used market or does the price drop significantly? I'd like to pick one up before my cruise to use in conjunction with my Oceanic VT3.

I can hook you up with my local mom and pop Citizen AD here in Miami for a killer price. Since you'll be here in January, you can pick up the watch from him prior to your cruise.b-)

Why is the European model in Meters 100$ cheaper!?!?

I would of course, prefer feet, but for 100$ extra I don't know.

Mini - check your PM's, and thanks again everyone for the info.
PM sent.b-)

I am still trying to find out as to why the $100 price difference. I think one model has function(s) the cheaper one is lacking.:think:

Interesting - it must be the warranty.

Your connection has a price on the US Model that makes it worth it.

I think the 5 year warranty is also a benefit since the watch has some interesting complications.
Absolutely:-!

My belief is when buying a new Citizen always source the watch from an authorized dealer.b-)

Half round. Something about the abnormal shape catches my eye much more than the round.

The round looks like a Casio Pathfinder to me, which isn't a bad thing, but I feel that it loses some of it's unique-ness in that configuration.

The 20th Anniversary Aqualands are really superb pieces, like nothing else out there.:p
