Spent a number of months researching different watches and this was by far the best fit.
The band is integrated, and not an off the shelf band, and that can lead to a larger expense when the band needs replacement. Takes a short time for the band to adjust, but feels very comfortable.
Anyway, to the watch. It is very cool. the bezel moves well, I wish it had a point instead of the "60" but that is minor. It does take a little time to break in the band, its kind of stiff. It will take some getting used to when wearing. It comes with two retainers for the band end, I took one off and put it away for when one breaks as they always do. During my research I found out that this watch uses the E168 movement which is used alot by citizen and is very dependable. The screw down crown is tight but not rediculous. In one of the reviews I read the guy said that the manual said it is not a dive watch. I could not find that anywhere in my manual, on the contrary, it tells you how to use it in a dive setting. I am going diving next week, I will find out for sure.
So far, I really like this watch. I dont know why but I am fascinated by the fact that it is solar. I set it in the direct sun and let it "charge" for a while and it runs good, I am within a second or two of when I originally set it. The only thing I am worried about it that citizen for whatever reason placed the crystal above the bezel so there is nothing to protect it from rubbing on stuff. I have to make a concious effort of what I do when I am wearing it for fear of getting scratched.
So in summary, the crystal and the 60 on the bezel is why it got 4 instead of 5 stars. Otherwise, I love the watch. Very cool. I dont think you will be disappointed.
Setup & Comfort: B
I did not want to take it deeper as this is generally the depth limit for recreational diving. I have increased my rating to 4 Stars as this will be more than sufficient for 90% of divers.
Original review :
I confess to being a bit puzzled with this item. It is rated at 200 meters water resistance, called a scuba diver watch, but in its own instruction book a WR200 rating means that it is not recommended to take this watch scuba diving ..... only " for frequent use with water, it is not specially designed for scuba diving " thus the 3 star mark.
I regularly dive to 60 meters and bought this watch with the expectation that it would be joining me on at least some of those dives. Perhaps Citizen are being very very conservative - if the watch pressure resistance is rated at 200m and 60m is less than a third of that depth - would could possibly go wrong ?! I will take this watch on a deep dive (eventually) and add my findings to this review.
Otherwise I love the style, simplicity and promise of never having to compromise its waterproofing due to the eco drive battery charging system, it looks great on my wrist and the glow in the dark performance is very good - no more having to decipher what the time is in the pitch dark !
