Summary: I received this watch from my husband for Christmas. It is very pretty. However, it is WAY too big for me so I have been unable to wear it. It is so big it would slide right off my wrist and I would lose it for sure (and I am an average size woman - 5'4" and size 12). I am sure there is a way to take links out of the bracelet part of the watch, however, there were NO instructions on how to do that.
Summary: I received this watch in June 09 for my birthday from my husband and kids. They had originally picked out a different eco-drive watch, but I had some issues with it and returned it to the jewelry store where they purchased it. I picked this one out to replace it and LOVE LOVE LOVE it. I've had to have the band adjusted twice to fit my wrist, the first time it was still big and slid around my wrist, so I had them remove another link and it fits great.
Summary: Nice, pretty watch, EXCEPT FOR ONE THING... It is difficult to size to fit a small wrist. The links in the band are 2 different sizes; some are removable, some are not. The two links closest to the face, with the crystals, are non-removable, as are several others. The band is VERY large; good if you have a larger wrist, but not if it is small. I had to remove all, but one, of the removeable links to get it to fit.
Summary: I used to own a citizen eco Drive similar to this exact model. Needed to get the band resized since it was large but the watch is beautiful, lightweight and metal band does not tarnish since it is stainless steel. Have yet to see how long the gold finish will last but my previous two tone watch held its color for over 2 years. It does not need its battery changed since it is a rechargable cell that works via solar cell and artificial light works.
