Product Description

Embrace the effortless style that comes with a Citizen Eco-Drive watch. Imaging never having to worry about winding a watch or making sure it has a functional battery. The perfect everyday timepiece that rarely requires your attention, wearing an Eco-Drive allows you to turn your attention to the more important things in life.

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.

    Keeps good time and looks simple yet elegant.
    NDLAOKC
    Fit and finish are excellent, and the canvas band is well made and has a leather backing.
    D. Hartgrove
    Other than this feature, it's a great watch and I highly recommend it.

    This is my second Citizen Eco-Drive watch I have ordered through Amazon.com. (My old rubber strapped Seiko Arctura kinetic began losing time and stopping after many years of use. I had sent it out for repair more than once, and it likely had a failed capacitor). I purchased this Citizen Men's BV1080-18A Sport Eco-Drive Strap Watch recently to replace the Seiko. As a new offering from Citizen, no reviews were available on this watch before I ordered mine, and this is my first post ever on a product review. It is definately an attractive timepiece with its large white face; easy-to-read wide black hour and minute hands; red second hand housed in its own display and date window. Because it runs on light (ambient or artificial) it is NO maintenance. On top of that, it keeps perfect time. The silver-colored case and beige canvas strap adds to its look and comfort. I am very satisfied with both of my Citizen Eco-Drive watches.

    A great watch that does the one thing watches are supposed to do---accurately displays the time. Absent are the "chronograph" features none of us use, and it does not start your coffee in the morning or clock the revolutions of Jupiter's moons. Looks good with all sport clothes, but don't wear it to the opera. Fit and finish are excellent, and the canvas band is well made and has a leather backing. Face design is clean and elegant. Price relative to fit, finish, design, and function is excellent. This is my third EcoDrive watch.

    For a no-nonsense, maintenance-free, functional watch for daily use, citizens are hard to beat.

    This model is very practical:
    a) affordable, so you don't mind wearing it everywhere and banging it around.
    b) 10 bar water resist.
    c) not heavy but feels very solid.
    d) doesn't have a protruding giant bezel, making it rather slim (but not ultra thin).
    e) 42mm width, probably one of the most popular men's watch sizes these days.
    f) an uncluttered dial with very good contrast.
    g) black painted parts, namely the numbers and the two hands, surprisingly have lume.
    h) five year warranty

    The bad:
    a) date window is small and out of proportion. It's also sunken in, a bit behind the dial, so it often has shadow cast on it, making it even harder to read. I think they should have just removed the date window altogether.
    b) the strap looks cheap and the color is so-so. I replaced it with a nice black 22mm, water resistant leather strap.
    c) lume isn't great, but due to the black on white contrast, you can usually read the face as long as you have a little bit of light.

    Great watch. Keeps good time and looks simple yet elegant. I like the fact you don't need to wind it or need a battery. Worried about the band until I put it on. I really like this watch.

    This is definitely a "basic watch". No frills. I bought this for a senior citizen who just wants a watch to tell time. The only instruction I gave him was that he should not take it off and store it in a closed desk. It has run a month with no problems and did not need to be reset. Oh, I got a great price through Amazon. Delivery was great.

    This is one of the most attractive watches in the Citizen eco-drive line up in my opinion. The dial is a beautiful off-white colour, with black hands and numerals. The simplicity of the design and the contrast between the face and the hands/numbers makes it easy to read at a quick glance.
    It sits nicely on the wrist too. I ordered a quality black leather strap with white stitching (from the Hirsch range), that complements the watch perfectly and makes it look more valuable than the supplied nylon strap. I have a collection of watches, including Rolex, Omega and Blancpain, but I really love wearing and gazing at this piece.
    My only criticism is that I find the date difficult to read. The window is too small and the numbers too large. A watch this size could have been perfected with a larger date. Hence I give it four stars.

    A nice watch with excellent timekeeping. Four stars since the band was a bit small for me and as others have commented the date is toooo small to read.

    watches are kind of personal and not everybody likes the same features. (end of speech.) anyway, i really like this one. the size is large but not too jumbo. the band is woven nylon with a nice smooth sewn in liner that is very comfortable. the best feature is that the face is extremely easy to read. sort of like the old railroad face, but updated. i like the small second hand dial at 6. the date window is very small. )personally, i wish it didn't have one at all, but it is small.) as far as i can tell so far, there is no illumination of either the face or hands. seems to keep time well, so far.

    5 year warranty. claimed water proof to 110m.

    price is a little high, but it appears to be a high quality product and it looks cool. (IMHO it looks a lot better in person than the picture on the website.)

    they also have it with the black face, that had me tempted. i'm glad i went with this one. VERY EASY TO READ AT A GLANCE.

    UPDATE: watch still works great and looks great. price has come down about $30 since i bought mine. i did replace the band because the tan one got dirty too easily. instead i replaced it with a Hadley-Roma Men's MSM740RA 220 22-mm Black Silicone Layered Leather Watch Strap looks really sharp on this watch! watch continues to keep great time and the battery backup works perfect.
