Summary: This "Citizens" was an addition to a small collection and I really like it! I have to admit that a few years ago I ragged on almost anything that wasn't solar-powered, titanium, "Atomic" time correct or didn't come with an optional holster for my HK USP .45
Pros: I have 8 watches, some with custom leather bands, others with titanium or S.S. All are solar powered and automatic to check with Bolder Colorado's "Atomic" time check 5 to 6 times a day. O.k. guy's, lets face it, if a mans watch was like a woman's, lipstick, we'd be changing it just as often, jus...
Cons: None! I should have had an open mind to all the great watches out there that I passed on by because of my over-inflated ego!
Excerpt: I bought this watch as a birthday gift for my husband and he loves it. He already owns a Eco Drive Citizen so adjusting the settings was easy for him. Its very stylish and earns lots of compliments. I think the face is black, but he says it's Navy. Either way, its a great looking watch.
Summary: This is one of the most beautiful watches ever made! It can go with any attire. I bought it for my husband so that he had more than just a calculator watch to wear with his suit (when on really rare occasions he has to dress that fancy) but it goes so well with his everyday business attire and even...
Pros: Beautiful leather band perpetual calendar titanium light powered
Summary: This watch is classy yet sporty, looks great and has many features not found in other watches in a similar price range, and it comes with an iron-clad warranty. I love it! The e-bay price was also very competitive. Great deal!
Pros: Very light weight, extremely comfortable. Feels more expensive than it is. Since the watch powers itself from sunlight, it is always running without interruption. It's extremely convenient as a daily watch.
Cons: The watch was labeled titanium. The bezel is stainless steel. After researching a bit, I found that only the metal band version of this watch comes in full titanium. The stainless steel on top of the titanium makes it look a little bit cheaper, that is the only thing I don't like about this watch.
Excerpt: The watch is beautiful, stylish, and all around just looks great. The problem I had with it wasn't anything aesthetic...it was the complexity of its functions and difficulty to use. Most aggravating of these difficulties was the trouble I had setting the date.
A well crafted timepiece. Great value with a great look.

Summary: I bought this watch based on the look and style watch as a good everyday wearing timepiece. I liked how the watch accented what I was wearing for a regular or casual look versus needing something more dressier. I have been a fan of the Citizen name, quality and workmanship.
