Product Description

Since its foundation in 1930, CITIZEN has promoted a multi-cultural mindset that fosters excellence and creativity. The very name of the brand conveys a deep respect toward craftsmanship and considered as familiar by citizens the world-over. So as a “citizen” of the world, we bear the responsibility to help cultivate a culture of positive change and on-going evolution through our craft. We take that mission seriously and steadfastly welcome what the future may bring.

As a true manufacture d’horlogerie, CITIZEN integrates a comprehensive manufacturing process from creating individual components to a watch’s final assembly. It’s an artisan’s approach to watch making based on pushing forward the boundaries of technology and leveraging our experience toward exploring new possibilities.

One pivotal technological breakthrough was the development of a light-driven watch. CITIZEN pioneered this engineering innovation well ahead of other watch manufacturers as early as 1976, which led to the launch of the highly acclaimed Eco-Drive in 1995. Utilizing electrical power converted from virtually any light source, this extraordinary innovation changed forever the way watches could be powered. Eco-Drive eliminated the need to ever replace batteries, which made it especially beneficial to areas where such specialist batteries were not obtainable. This leveled the field for citizens of virtually every country to be able to experience unrestricted joy of wearing and using a CITIZEN watch.

The product development policy, “The Fusion of Technology and Beauty,” remains a constant motivation for us to merge cutting-edge technology with perfection of design beauty, which as a consequence inspires people to strive to be their best at any time.

CITIZEN launches a new campaign in collaboration with Wieden+Kennedy, Better Starts Now. This is the simple belief that no matter who you are or what you do, it is always possible to make something better — and now is the time to start doing it. We believe that better and now are both infinite, and that there is always a next ‘better’ and a new ‘now’ in which you can start pursuing it. It was clear from the onset of this project that we are dedicated to this ideal…not to the past but to the present, and all the way we can improve it. To help communicate this belief to the world we have created a new global CITIZEN brand movie, brand identity and brand website that represents out Better Starts Now philosophy.

    One last thing: the watch is very eye catching and you will get a lot of nice complements.

    I bought another strap (Hadley-Roma MSM898RR-220 Tan Alligator leather strap) but found that the white watch face looks best in contrast to a darker band.

    It is easy to set up if you never try to read the manual and instead use the cd that comes with the watch.

    Attractive quality watch with Eco Drive so no battery to replace. It is easy to set up if you never try to read the manual and instead use the cd that comes with the watch. Large face and contrasting info dials look great, strap is a quality leather band with steel clasp. Once the perpetual calendar is set (and the watch remains charged) you never have to adjust for months with 30 (or 28-29) days. At least not through 2100, so my grandchild will have to worry about that. So far keeping perfect time and very comfortable to wear.

    I recently got the Citizen BL5470-06A as a gift and it is my third Citizen Eco-Drive watch. All three are versatile (Calibre 8700 BL8000-54L, E111-S065917, BL5470), look great, and are a great value for the price point. I have not found any comparable brands in quality and value at the $250-500 price range.

    Here are the highlights of this watch:
    - beautiful, classy silver/white face
    - solid, heavy construction; water resistant to 100 meters
    - perpetual calendar (here's the video for setting the time/date http:[...]
    - the numbers and watch hands glow in the dark (subtle but functional)
    - great chronograph that measures 1/20th of a second (start-stop watch feature)

    Here are the things I didn't like:
    - I found the watch to be a bit too thick when wearing a suit. I have to really pry open my shirt cuff because the thickness makes my shirt cuffs feel tight at the wrists. I was hoping to use this watch for both casual and formal but it looks like I won't be wearing it with my suits. I prefer my other slim Citizen watch for suits.
    - I don't think the watch band feels or looks cheap (like other reviewers have said). But the band is a bit stiff and needs to be bent and broken in. The watch does not sit at the center of my wrist (like my other watches do) but leans away, forcing me to really twist my wrist to see the time. I bought another strap (Hadley-Roma MSM898RR-220 Tan Alligator leather strap) but found that the white watch face looks best in contrast to a darker band.

    I think the watch's setup can seem intimidating but if you go to Citizen's web site and read the instructions or watch the video on youtube or on the CD, it's very simple. I think it's unfortunate the watch gets low ratings because people are too lazy to find and follow instructions. Take note that the dial does not turn. It's a great piece and my wife absolutely loves it! Highly recommended!

    I originally bought a Seiko via Amazon since I always had them as my primary watch. However I returned the Seiko since its features were not what I wanted. I replaced it with this Citizen's watch. It is my first Citizens and I love it. It has all the features I want ( alarm, luminous dial, multiple time zone, perpetual calendar, chronograph) and it is easy to use. The accompanying CD was the key to setting it up the first time.

    My wife bought this for me as a wedding present. I had it for a month and could already see wear on the band. I treat it pretty nicely so this came as a pretty big surprise. Ive had it for three months now; the wear has not gotten a whole lot worse, but Im looking into getting another band. I have another citizen and have been extremely happy with the movement of both this and the other watch, but for the money you'd think citizen would use quality leather.

    This watch was a fathers day gift
    I originally was looking for a Seiko but couldn't find one I liked
    I have had very good luck with Seiko having them last more than 30 years
    This is my second Citizen watch replacing one that stopped working after 11 years

    The pros:
    Love the way the watch looks
    Very easy to see
    The lighter face is fantastic
    Solar power is great, no more battery's to change
    The band is very comfortable unlike a metal one
    Good price for what I wanted in a watch

    The cons:
    Difficult to setup initially, paper instructions are useless
    I used the video
    Impossible to see the date, need larger numbers
    Setting alarm and using chronograph to cumbersome
    Alarm sound barely audible and too short

    If you just need a watch for time, it's terrific
    Alarm and chronograph not really worth having

    This watch is very aesthetically pleasing and is comfortable. I ended up having to return it as it is very cumbersome to change the date and time. There are a lot of steps to change the time even just an hour which is not only a bit confusing but a pain if you are traveling for work and need to update the time. If I did not have to travel for work I probably would have considered keeping it but also note that the band is a bit lighter than it appears on the picture. Overall its a good product so long as you are not needing to update the time frequently.

    Appearance: This is an awesome watch and the photos do not justice at all to the real watch in flesh.
    Functionality: No need for batteries, perpetual calendar is extremely useful, keeping time is accurate once calibrated with a time source from the internet, the only drawback is the quality of the leather band (Not too bad and not superb, just acceptable).
    Watch Setting: many people declared that setting the watch is a tiresome process. The manual contains two types of movements, so check the one inside your watch and go set it according to instructions. The process is very straight forward and you will admire the way setting is organized by Citizen. If you challenge any problems, do not tamper with the watch and go straight to your nearest Citizen dealer and they shall set it freely for you and also show you how to do it yourself. Excellent product for the money.
    One last thing: the watch is very eye catching and you will get a lot of nice complements.
