Promaster Skyhawk A-T is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 30.
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 5 out of 5 by from Great features and accuracy. I bought this over a month ago. The watch great on my wrist. I really like the automatic time setting every night. I live in MD and the update will be successfully performed in front of windows facing either East or West. The time is very accurate; I can measure the start of a TV program when the second hand hits the 12. The second hand is easily readable due to yellow on blue background. The time is easily read in the dark with luminous hands and dial. I like the incorporation of the built in timer and 24 hour stop watch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One Incredble Timepiece My wife gifted this to me recently and it exceeded all expectations. This watch is meticulous in every aspect. It’s comfortable to wear, and versatile for any attire. My Submariner has been collecting some dust since receiving this watch and that will likely continue. The flight calculations are spot on and have proven helpful in the cockpit, despite those who may say it’s more of a novelty. I fly for the Air Force, and precision timekeeping is necessary in a number of time zones, it’s nice not setting my watch every morning anymore. If you’re a flyer, you need this watch.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THE BEST BLUE ANGELS TIMEPIECE YET! I received my first Blue Angels Navihawk as a gift many years ago, and I loved it! Unfortunately, I lost that watch, so I bought the Blue Angels Skyhawk Titanium. I have always wanted an atomic Blue Angels watch, so when I first saw the Blue Angels Promaster Skyhawk A-T I knew I just had to have it! Citizen has done a great job with the Blue Angels Watches, and the Blue Angels Promaster Skyhawk A-T is now my favorite!

Hello, how do you read/ use the chrono, timer mode when the hour or minute hand is at 4:00? The digital screen is hidden by them. 

Asked by: Memorex 45
Sorry, I am limited to the feature of the atomic time only and the watches looks.

Guys I have a Blue Angel ECO Drive that just quit working. Who do I send it to for repair. It means a lot to me as I served with the Blu Angels from 68 - 1970. I am on fixed income so I can’t pay a lot to get it repaired. 

Asked by: Blue Angel 139
Hurley Roberts Watch Citizen watch repair in Peachtree Corners, Georgia. I send my Blue Angels and Citizen Dive watches in for service every couple of years and they are the best and very reasonable. They are the east coast official repair center for Citizen. Go to their website and they walk you through the process of sending it in with a prepaid label and all. Good luck!

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?

I have the previous model of this watch with a titanium band, can I swap out the bands so that I can keep the lightweight titanium band with this new model? Thanks

Asked by: Airresq
Thank you for the reply. I would love to order this watch as soon as a titanium band can be placed on it. Please let me know, and I will keep an eye on the website.
