...buy this watch. I got this as a xmas gift from my wife. I echo some of the other comments: impossible to read face at night, and the band does smell after a few weeks. Also, because of the size of the face, it doesn't usually sit flat against my wrist. It tends to lean to one side. Other than that, I dig it for the price. Plus it's a Citizen, so it's well made. I've had one of their watches in the past and had no complaints.

Something I think is being downplayed in many of the other reviews is the issue of visibility. I am in my 20s with perfect eye sight and I can not see a damn thing when its dark outside. I have tried to charge the lume in the watch but it fades away within minutes, but hey during those five minutes the green illumination works great! Thought I would give you guys a heads up, that is my only complaint with the watch which is why it received 4 stars.

This is a very cool looking watch (bought it pretty much solely based on its looks), and the quality is good. The one thing it needs is a backlight!! It's impossible to see the time in dim lighting.

Beautiful watch ! It is eye catching and I've gotten postive comments and compliments while wearing. Yes, the band is stiff, the band has silver eyelets and while that does detract from the "blackout" design, it certainly does not detract from the beauty of the watch. The only caution I would throw is that if you are inclined to use the calendar on your watch to keep you up to date you might want to reconsider... the date window is very small and nearly unreadable. I don't use my watch for that purpose but if I did, I'd be up a creek. Other than that, this is a sweet watch and well worth the money !

My boyfriend wanted this watch for awhile and he loves this brand. So I wanted to surprise him for Valentine's Day. When I received the item, I love the look of it and I can't wait to give it to him! :)

I love how it looks. Nice and elegant, very elegant and top noch quality.
The only complaint I have is because you can not see it in dark areas.

Well done Citizen! Nice looking, well-constructed piece wears quite nicely, just like the quasi-tactical specimen they (probably) designed it to be. If you've only seen the watch in pictures, please know that it doesn't photograph well... an entirely black subject is a tough chore for any camera. When in-hand, the all matte black look combined with reliable Citizen construction/components serve to make this watch handsome and very likable.

Gripes? Just one... and it's the only reason the item isn't five-starred. The case to spring bar gap is very narrow. None of my aftermarket leather straps, and some nylon ones (most from #CrownandBuckle), would fit through the opening. I almost returned the watch based on this alone. I always love an excuse to go buy more straps, but this element of the overall design was just annoying.

My disappointment was doubled due to the watch arriving with an OK (at best) original strap from Citizen... this watch needs an aftermarket selection to really be presentable. Luckily, some #Maratac straps finally made it through the gap and saved the day.

Overall... recommended. But, budget for additional (and thin) straps.

I ordered this watch as a gift for my husband (he had seen it in a store at the mall and loved it). Arrived quickly and damage free, he wears it often and enjoys the rugged look.

Perfect size, has everything I want to see, not a bunch of crap I don't need. Color scheme on paper sounds bland, but the shades of grey and black in person really blend together well.
