Citizen NYOO83-14X (RoseGold) and the NY0081-10L-(Blue) watches are one of Citizen’s finest watches, as they’re both often described, and compared to Seiko’s SKX007. Even if you know nothing about the two Citizen model watches, you know they’re good, quality watches if they are often discussed along side with Seiko’s SKX007.

Genuine Tuscan leather watch strap, 100% handcrafted in Italy. Luxury Italian hides are tanned using traditional, natural methods, without chemical coloring & chrome. It features two size punch holes and a matching leather lining as a typical racing strap. Italian leather can retain the extraordinary tensile strength even split into thinner substances.

While holding the two Citizen watches in my hand and trying to find bracelets/straps that would match nicely with each of the Citizen diver watch.

This is a quick-release watchband having a cylindrical push button on one side for quick and easy installation and removal process without applying any tools.  Not only that, this special made quick release spring bar having a double flange on one side which adds benefit in case there was a need to use a spring bar tool as well. This Italian suede leather strap was featured in cut edge with stitching at lug end and the tip of strap.

Right: 20mm MiLTAT Perlon Watch Strap, Black & Blue, Sandblasted Ladder Lock Slider Buckle 20A20EBU59N7B19

While the base color around the watch case on the NY0083-14X-RG model is primarily of rose gold with a dark brown color dial, pairing the watch with either black, khaki, or shades of brown color straps will be preferred choices.

WW2 G10 Nylon Collection, tight up with two 316L stainless steel rings with ‘Arrow End’ feature. These two pieces military watch strap made from folding over, double layered nylon. Ballistic nylon has low water absorbency and runs off the smooth surface, hence dries quickly. Our nylon is cut and simultaneously sealed using ultrasonic knives to prevent fraying. This military watch band looks perfect match to your military or dive watches.

European made braided Perlon strap attached a superior quality 316L stainless steel ladder lock slider buckle to strap connection. The quality of Perlon strap was good but always been complaining that the buckle was too flimsy.

As for the NY0081-10L-BL model that comes in a navy blue bezel, with a silver watch case, its much easier to find straps to match with.  Plenty of options to mix and match when the primary colors on the time piece are red, white, and blue.

Alligator leather is tanned using Italian methodology, the incredible vintage touch & dye, others are not able to be compared with. Unique exotic American alligator leather is one of the world’s most elegant, durable, tough and beautiful leather material for making a perfect watch strap. 

Nubuck has velvety surface, looks quite similar to suede. It is made from sanded top layer of calfskin and is much tougher than suede, so is more durable. MiLTAT Nubuck Collection has 4 color options: grey, military green, dark brown & camel brown

The folding mechanism of deployant buckle allows the strap to wear and remove extremely easy, watch remains attached to the wrist like a bracelet even the clasp was opened. The
