Product Description

Featuring light-powered Eco-Drive technology, the sleek and sophisticated #BM8430-59E from Citizen never needs a battery. Boasting the precision of quartz movement, this elegant timepiece features a polished stainless steel silver-tone bezel, case, crown and screw-in caseback, as well as silver-tone markers, white indices, and small luminous markers on a bold black dial. An analog day and date display keeps you organized, while water resistance to 100 meters (330 feet) helps guard against wear and tear.

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.

    I have had this watch for about 1 month as of this review. From looks to function, it does not disappoint. This watch seems to be very well made with close attention paid to detail. There are no blemishes or misalignment of the watch itself or the bracelet. The finish is high quality; bright and shiny for the gloss sections and with an even luster of the brushed stainless steel parts. I had to remove some bracelet links with the Citizen split pin tool that came with the promotion Amazon was running. This was not hard to do but required very careful attention and good close-up eyesight.

    The watch seemed to be running as soon as I took it out of it's cylindrical box. I thought that was odd until I read that as soon as the watch is exposed to light, it starts. I left it on the window ledge of my home the first day in bright sunshine and it has kept running since. Setting the time, day and date was rather easy after following the instructions. So far, after almost 1 month, my watch has lost about 1 second compared to the analog atomic clock in my home - not to shabby to say the least!!

    This watch is also a bit smaller in diameter than many contemporary watches at 36mm. I am grateful for this because I have a thin wrist. I wanted a new watch that would not look like a pocket watch strapped to my wrist (and indeed, some watches today are the diameter of old pocket watches!). Furthermore, it fits easily under the cuff of my shirt whereas I am not sure that a large diameter thick watch could.

    All in all, I have a well made, solar powered, highly accurate watch that looks good in practically any setting. I am very happy with my purchase and recommend Citizen.

    I am a very picky person, and originally i wanted an Omega watch that looked great, but the price tag was $3,000. I did a lot of research before i found another watch that i liked in the price range i could afford. This citizen is great, the cool features (like no battery needed) help, but i really like the way this watch looks and feels. The only thing that i would improve on this watch is the look of the watch hands (or whatever they are called). They make the watch look a bit cheap. I think if the hands were better looking the watch would look very classy. Besides that, I love this watch and have to say its my best purchase of 2009.

    The watch looks great and as with all the Eco Drive watches it keeps great time.

    The picture don't show it well (to a slightly color blind male) but the dial is a dark grey. It looks black in some light and grey in others. I read that on a review so I wasn't surprised by it when it came.

    There are also lines that go in between the number hashes.

    I think the first picture of this watch is inaccurate. Look at the picture with the millimeter ruler. That is a much more accurate picture of what you'll be buying.

    I found this watch in a jewelry store and came home and purchased it on Amazon for about half the price. It is a great watch for what I need it for and for the price. I wear it with business casual wear and even with jeans. It looks great and so far has held up great. Overall a great watch for the price.

    Have had no issues with this watch. Looks great, but be aware that it looks MUCH more like picture 5 than picture 1. The outer rings are not obtrusive, but this watch does NOT have a plain black face as picture 1 would suggest.

    I bought this for my husband because it's one of the few metal band/bracelet type watches with a small face. It's everything the other reviewers have mentioned - simple, classy, and practical. Good enough to be on the tennis court or for a night out and durable enough for snorkeling (yes, it survived a week at the beach). My husband liked the fact that the hands illuminate so he was able to tell time at night as well.

    As for the ongoing debate on whether the face is black or gray, I think it's safe to say it's more black than gray. By that I mean I see why some people see gray while others see black. As an amateur photographer, true black really makes other colors stand out because all the colors seem sharper and richer. IMHO, and on a blackness scale of 1-10, I would rate the blackness a 9. I think the face on this watch isn't a 10 due in part to the fine rings engraved on the face, which causes a glare/reflection. This causes the black to appear lighter.

    Bonus - it's an eco-drive so no batteries to swap out. My husband likes it so much, I'm buying another one for my father-in-law!

    I own another Citizen watch (Hyperland Duplex dive watch) in addition to 3 other brands. In looking for a new watch, I wanted something that I could dress up with, but not have a watch too glitzy that I couldn't wear it with loafers and a button-down. I found that in this watch. I have trusted my life with my Citizen dive watch and was not let down so I considered Citizen for one of my options. The price was great and it looks like it cost 2 to 3 times what I paid for it. I'm not one to purchase something such as a watch sight-unseen, but I am happy with this purchase.
    I'll follow up later after I have had a chance to wear it several times
