Product Description

Rugged, refined and effortlessly stylish. This sporty timepiece is featured in stainless steel with black ion plating and green nylon strap. Bright orange accents on the dial complete this military inspired look. model # BV1085-22H

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.

    This is your basic mid price range Citizen watch. What is unique about this watch face, is the outer numbers are numbered in five minute increments so users can more easily read the minutes, versus by hour. I find this helpful, if you're working and need to quickly determine dry times or how long since you've performed a task in minutes. The outer perimeter minutes also help to quickly determine in between quarter hour minutes. (ie. The minutes design used on perimeter of this watch face diminishes the amount of time to distinguish between 1:05 & 1:10, 1:20 & 1:25, 1:35 & 1:40, ...) This also seems to help with memory retention as the minutes are not commonly shown on a normal watch face, requiring the minutes to be visualized instead of seen. Then later the minutes are usually more difficult to recall.

    All in all, I'd say this watch has an unusual but well thought-out and logical watch face design!

    Pros
    1) Easily distinguishable numbers with outer edge minute markings.
    2) Luminescent for night time use.
    3) Soft leather within the inner clothe strap; very comfortable wearing.
    4) Citizen quality.
    5) Citizen watches now appear to have standardized straps, making interchanging straps easy without any fuss of the watch then looking weird.

    Cons
    1) Advertised models are confusing when looking at their website. There are also black (BV1085-14E) and tan (BV1085-31E) strapped versions of this same similar watch face. (ie. List or group all BV1085-* models onto the same page.)

    I'll probably buy a tan strap later for this green strapped (BV1085-22H) model, so that this watch doesn't look so military looking.

    This is my first Eco-Drive watch and man am I impressed!!! It has a simple military design with an OD Green nylon band that is very comfortable. The case is black as is the face with both white and orange numbers and hands so it is easy to read. The case is 43mm so it's a good size and has nice weight to it. It's casual and sporty and is an extremely cool timepiece!!

    I purchased this watch for more casual wear and it has more than lived up to the billing. It is a great watch, a slightly smokey face - not black. The orange hour markings really pop off of the face. The date marker is set back a little far, can be hard to see at an angle. I did change the band out for a light, natural leather band and it has given it a very nice, but still very casual look. I have to compliment Citizen because it is not as easy to tell where the solar panels of this watch are like on other Eco-Drives I own. This watch can be a little big, but I think the style and face are great.

    I got this watch at a department store (starts with M and rhymes with Tracy) at the same price it was offered here. I was looking for a military styled watch which didn't require batteries, and I wanted something a bit nicer than my Casios. I have a G-Shock, a Pathfinder, and a couple other Waveceptor. I also have another Citizen Eco-Drive AT0660-6E, I believe, and a couple of Seiko 5 automatics. At any rate, I love the watch now I've replaced the awful band with something else. I bought a green rubber tire tread design strap (Toscana) from Amazon, and a couple of Hadley-Roma rubber straps as well. I'm not sure why Citizen hampers some of their nice watches with awful straps. The problem is the eyelets and their spacing will get it too loose or too tight...suck.

    I find it to be a nice looking watch. I camp a lot, and don't have many occasions for dressing up. If I do, I'll just put on a nicer strap and I'm good to go. It's accurate, water resistant down further than I'll ever swim, but I don't have to remove it for showering. That was a turnoff for the Seikos, and the lack of accurate timekeeping. I like the orange highlights, the aforementioned Citizen was a bit too orange, lol. Good looking dial, easy to see without glasses, and very nice lume. The best part is no more bi-yearly or sooner battery replacement. Better for the planet too..can't beat that! I think this one is the best looking of the BV1085 series, but that's my opinion. If you're looking for a good beater everyday watch, I don't think you can go wrong with this one.

    As another review pointed out, it seems to be easier
    to take a quick glance and know the time to the minute, with the 0-60 being prominent on the outside. So far, keeps excellent time, have an atomic self adjusting clock, and after a couple of weeks, this watch has stayed with it, to the second.
    Only thing to criticize is the band. For a watch that is able to be worn in water, cloth is not my idea of a good material to use. Have already changed out to a black Casio band.(22mm). Other than that, I am very happy with the watch.

    I coupled this with a nylon wrist band, so far it's kept perfect time, is stylish, and looks great. I like how the seconds are listed on the outside, gives it a very distinct look. Lightweight.
