beautiful and practical
19 July 2015
Pros: this is beautiful and it has eco drive, perpetual calendar. I receive compliments often on this watch, it has the class and flare of a gold or silver watch, but fits more nicely with casual clothing.
Cons: the dial is listed as dark blue, I must say, it is clearly black except in certain florescent light, but even then it has a "solar blue" tint to it.
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
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.
Summary: I swapped out the leather band with a titanium watch band to match the look of the titanium watch body. The watch is very lightweight and comfortable. Not an oversized watch ... just right for wearing daily as a traveling consultant.
Pros: I've had this particular watch model for 6+ years now and it has never lost power, has never needed a date change, and only needs time sync about 1 time per year. I travel a lot with frequent time zone changes and this watch can be adjusted by time zone without losing a single second of accuracy....
Cons: You need to read the watch manual to understand how to set and adjust time, DST, etc. But once you memorize the functions, you will be amazed at how easy it is to adjust for a time zone change and not have to worry about calibrating the time. You can adjust time zone and not lose a single second ...
Pros: Shpping was fast, very pleased with watch. Citizen watches are very reliable and high quality this makes the 3rd in my collection all three are solar powered. This watch is my favorite. It is very light and the leather band is nice, takes time to get used to all it's features.
