Summary: Bought for a trip. Need waterproof and see in the dark. Strap broke right before I left. Searching for replacement. The watch itself is great but the strap is stiff and awkward. The tail never stays tucked in. I can see fromt he other reviews that a replacement wont last very long.
Summary: I have owned my watch for 3 months and the band just broke fell off expectantly. There were no cuts or pulling on the watch. The watch has not been worn for diving and was removed for showers. I am very disappointed because the band is not covered under the warranty.
Summary: My experience has been the same as the others who's band broke after a short period of time. Mine was aprox. 6 months as well. I too called Citizen to be told the same thing...not covered. I ordered another one for $29.95 but when we went to settle up, shipping made the watch band $44.00.
Summary: I loved this watch while it lasted. Then, one day, I was sitting there and the watch fell off because the band broke. There was never a sign that it was about to break--it didn't look or feel worn.
Summary: I've bought this watch for my wife so she doesn't take her Swiss watches travelling. She loved the watch so much, I'm not sure when she will return to her Oris and Longines which both sit on a winder at the moment.
Summary: Citizen has long been my first choice in watches as they have always been reliable and stylish. The Eco-Drive is a fantastic innovation as you do not need to worry about replacing a battery at an inopportune moment (as when you are in the middle of nowhere for a month).
Summary: This is a great dive watch but it looks nice enough to wear every day. It's a perfect size for a woman..not too bulky. The Eco-Drive system was recommeneded to me by a watch maker. Because it is solar powered it never needs to be opened to change a battery.
Summary: Readable face, keeps good time, but the rubber strap broke after 3 months and the Citizen people said I had to send the entire watch to California at my expense. BB'ware!! Strap # 2 just Broke!!! I feel like I have been mugged!!!! Is there a law? Do I have to buy another strap from Citizen again?
Summary: My wife usually gets a new watch every 6 months as her usual "Fashion" watches either run out of batteries, or keep on breaking down on her.She also is not very kind to them and they get beat up pretty bad. Bought her this watch 1 year ago.It charges by itself and has a tough screen.
I've been searching for a watch like this! - UPDATE

Summary: 05/24/2011 UPDATE (Three stars): While the information below still holds true, my band broke yesterday while I was sitting on the couch! I called Citizen, only to be told that the band isn't covered under the 5 year warranty, but they could send me a new one for $37.
