I believe that watch evolved from the Nighthawk design. (I'm surprised it's called Blue Angels because there is a previous Citizen that is labeled as the Blue Angels.) There is a lot of information packed into that dial and it requires good eyes to use. There are lots of watches with slide rule bezels and you can actually do multiplication/division with them. Maybe the intent is for a pilot to do calculations of fuel usage. There are various reviews online that explain the design elements of the dial such as this one:
it actually still lists as a Nighthawk. Just didn’t feel like typing out Blue Angels edition Nighthawk Promaster (which of course, I just did). There is also a BA edition in the Skyhawk, Navihawk, and Worrld Chronograph. But personally, I think the Nighthawk looks the best because it doesn’t have all the additional complications cluttering the face even more.
Seiko Orange Monster on rubber, for about 7 years now. I'll snap some pics of the poor busted up thing.

Seiko 5 Sports to mix it up for the weekend.
Armida A1 42mm
Love that Armida!
I had the 45mm and I loved its look and styling, but determined it was too big for me for normal wear. I thought about trying to find a 42mm version but ended up with a Deep Blue with some of the same characteristics I was looking for.
Thanks, I was looking at the 45mm too, mainly for the Swiss movement but 42mm really is as big as I want to go. How did you like the domed crystal on the 45mm? That’s another thing I wasn’tsure would work for me.
I had mixed feelings about the dome. I didn't dislike it, but it makes the watch a bit taller. While wearing I've never really noticed whether a crystal is flat, barely domed, or domed a lot.
