This is one of those purchases that I made after a seemingly endless search. In the end I came out under budget and thoroughly impressed by this watch.

This watch has a big, bold face with clean markings and takes subtle inspiration from retro aviation gauges. The finish on the case is exceptional, with nice transitions between satin and mirror finishes. The hour and minute hands are luminescent, and emit a mild glow for quite a while after their last charge. This eco-drive quartz is very accurate and promises to require little to no maintenance.

I chose to swap the leather strap for a black zulu band, which lets me forget I even have this hefty watch on, but leather or metal bands would make this an easy pick for formal wear.

I had about a dozen watches in my wish list and I would move some or remove some and add some, but this one stayed on the list for a long time before I decided to buy it.

I've had several Citizens over the years mainly because they match other watch makers in this price range in terms of looks and quality, plus they have the benefit of Eco-Drive. I always hate taking out one of my watches only to find the battery has died and now I have another chore to make sure I get to someone I trust to replace the battery. With the Eco Drive watches I have, not a concern.

I normally don't get the larger watches --- that's just something I've outgrown. But this one is an exception in that it doesnt realy look like a huge chunk of metal on the end of your arm. The way the dial is designed, it's got a slightly 3D look to it and that gives it an edge in its appearance compared to similar models. I like the "depth" of the watch face. There are thousands of watches on the market in this price range with similar movements and features, so aesthetics is the main factor, you know? The way the numbers are laid out is something you don't see everywhere, either, and I rally like it. The watch face is easy to read plus I'm a stickler for having a sweep hand --- that just seems like something that belongs on a watch, so I like getting mine with an actual second hand/ sweep hand. It gives the watch a bit of character, a bit of life to it.

The leather band is a bit thick and a bit stiff at first, but that will ease up in time. There are always thousands of band options, too, if I have to go that way.

The luminosity is marginally disappointing. I like having at least some of the outer dial to glow in the dark, like maybe the 12 - 3 - 6 and 9 positions, but on this watch it's just the hands that glow. No matter, it's only a slight quibble.

Very good purchase for the price!

This is a great looking modern watch. Looks great with a suit or jeans and t-shirt. The photos don't do it justice.

Haven't stopped wearing it since I bought it. I get compliments about it all the time. At first, I was kinda intimidated by the size, but it grew on me pretty quickly and I feel like it matches the style of the watch as well. It's also kinda on the hefty side, but the only watch I had before this was another Citizen with a metal band; it weighed about the same.

Overall, great watch! Bought it on impulse and I don't regret it one bit!

I own a couple of the higher end Citizen watches with Eco-drive. I wanted one for everyday use...this watch was exactly what I was looking for, I'm very satisfied with this purchase. Nice looking watch and comfortable to wear.

I really like the style of this watch. You're able to wear it with casual or formal clothes. I personally think the size of the watch is just fine. My old watch was just this size and I personally do not like smaller watches as I am not accustomed to them. As far as the leather band, yes it does get some used to because it is thick. I am also not too keen on the white stitching but that's just my personal taste. I will choose to replace the band when it wears out. Overall it is a stylish watch.

The only con I don't like about it is that it chose to highlight the minutes rather than the hourly numbers. Sure you can tell from the position of the hour hand but it does take some getting used to. The minute hand and second hands are also hard to see in darkness. However I'm sure I'll get used to all of this.

The biggest strengths of this watch are the styling, eco-drive (no need to replace the battery every year) and the Japanese movement which I hope will last.

Watch arrived in 2 days with prime account and that was with presidents day mixed in. Good size watch, I have a 7.5 in wrist, and this 45mm fits perfect. Good weight not to heavy but u can tell it's there. Numbers don't glow, but the hands put out a nice blue-ish color and r easy to see in the dark, and last through out the night. Only draw back was the leather band, a little cheap feeling but I replaced it with a 22mm nato band and that did the trick other wise would have given 5 star...over all great watch been wearing it as my every day work/weekend watch.

I need a watch for my job that displayed military time and also had the date. This one fit the bill. It's highly visible under all lighting conditions and you can see exact minutes marks. It doesn't mess around with flowery designs, but it's strictly business, utilitarian aesthetic was what I want.
