Promaster Skyhawk A-T is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but not great. When I saw this latest version of the Blue Angels Skyhawks I knew I had to have it. It looks amazing, has a sapphire crystal and micro adjustment on the bracelet. However it is th bracelet that is a total miss. It has very sharp edges and is just not comfortable over the course of a day. I take it off several times throughout the day and it feels like a sense of relief. The bracelet could also use a half link so that you can get the fit just right. The micro adjustment works but without the half link you might wear it too tight for summer and humidity or too loose the rest of the time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My go to, get sweaty with, watch I purchased this watch about 3 months ago. The watch's design features are perfectly executed; all hands are in perfect coordination and the second hand strikes exactly over each of its 60 minute chapters. As far as I could see, there are no dust particles, stray eyelash, or anything else on the dial or under the crystal. The radio signal auto update system works very well too. The watch has just about every desirable feature a watch wearer could want. I know how to use a slide rule and can say the one here is accurate and very handy. I purposely disengaged the auto update system to see how accurate the watch will be over a 30 day period: It gained a little less than 5 seconds/month, that's less than 1 minute a year; good enough for me. My one subjective criticism is the watch's size and weight; it is quite a load on my 7" wrist. After the first week of wear, I replaced its massive metal bracelet with a "Watch Steward" elastic strap; reduced weight by 1/3 and provided for a more comfortable on-wrist strap. The only reason I did not give this watch a 5-Star rating was for this reason. Overall though, it is a pretty great watch.

Just returned from overseas trip that crossed seven time zones. I was able to reset the hour hand to the Eastern time zone when I returned. However, the minute hand continues to be 35 seconds slow for the last week. Shouldn't it be reset automatically?

Kay Jewelers is carrying a version of this watch, model # JY8075-51E. It appears identical to your JY8078-52L. I wanted to view the owner’s manual for the watch to become more familiar with it’s features, so I’m wondering if the -52L is the same watch?

Asked by: Buddy
Yes the two model watches are similar as they share the same movement, but they are not identical. The movement for both watches are U680. To receive an owners manual for this movement, please contact our customer care department directly.

Hi, how can I select band size for this one? Thanks.

Asked by: Jimmy Y
A band size can not be selected. However, the band on the watch can be adjusted for size. As the band is made of links, links can be added or removed for sizing.
Answered by: CitizenCS

What’s the band size from purchase and how many links are removable?
