Excerpt: I was looking for nice watch for when I need to clean up for various activities, but that also would not break the bank. This Citizen watch serves nicely. I gravitate towards items that have clean, timeless lines and the all silver body and roman numeral use lend to that nicely.
Summary: Pros: Amazing looks, classic style, robust, and reasonably priced Cons: Bezel scratches easily and a bit heavy I have owned this for over a year now and really love it. I was looking for a nice formal watch. This has a very classy look and is visually appealling.
Summary: I am terrible at getting new batteries for my watch, so I thought an Eco-drive would be cool. I found this watch while on vacation the first year Eco-drives were available, and no other watch looked as classy or attractive. It is a bit heavy, and the dial gets scratched up pretty easily.
Summary: WOW!!! What a shocker. I just got off the phone with Dalesa and Kimberly in repairs at Citizen. They are nothing if not relentlessly dogged about the company policy....which is well aweful. The Watch Worked fine for 6 months, then the date stopped moving.
Summary: The product is perfect.I purchased it for my husband as an anniversary gift and he loves it a lot.The only problem was that amazon didn't have a one day shipping on watches and I didn't know that, so it arrived one day later which wasn't good.I hope amazon adds one day shipping for watches also.
Summary: Other reviews explain the workings of the watch pretty well. I'm not a watch snob so I'll leave that info to them. Pros: - Great looks. It can be work with almost any clothing. - No battery. - Nice size and weight. - Lume is a cool blue in dim light. Looks unique.
Summary: This is the second Citizen Eco-Drive watch that I have owned and my general experience with the Eco-Drive series of watches is that they are stylish, durable and low-maintenance. The sapphire crystal covering the watch face is surprisingly scratch resistant.
Great functions, however easily scratched dial and case.

Summary: I love the watch, very stylish yet classic. Impressive solar technology. Only downside is that the dial is really easily scratched, coz it's just made of regular glass. The polished dial is also easily scratched, only a few month in use and scratches are building up.
