Tough and pretty
on May 11, 2013
This is the second Citizen for my wife. The first is a more elegant model, but she was always taking it off while doing her many outdoor activities to keep it from getting beat up.
I decided on this one as a "work" watch because
- markings are very easy to read, good for older eyes
- water resistance (Diver's model overkill in this regard)
- rubber material for the band, so she would be more inclined to wear it for rougher duty than something leather or shiny metal
- seemed to look great in the photos, not too big or too overstated
Well, she loves it so much it goes everywhere, even to church.
I would recommend this highly for any woman who would like a purposeful, no-nonsense watch. The understated, "functionally elegant" appearance is far more appealing in person that one might imagine from pictures, and the owner will probably find herself wearing it for much more than diving or other sports activity. This would also make a great dive/sports watch for 8-12 yo boys... but then again they can probably dish out punishment that might challenge this one.
Five stars without reservation. Very nice!
