Designed for today's active woman, the silver-tone Citizen Eco-Drive 180 World Watch for women offers a sleek, contemporary design. This mid-sized, stainless steel timepiece features a black dial that's accented by silver stylized hands and a mix of stick and Roman numeral dial markers. The silver stainless steel bracelet band features links that mix brushed and polished finishes, and it's joined by a push-button folding safety clasp. Other features include a date function at 3 o'clock, scratch resistant mineral crystal with anti-reflective coating, and water resistance to 100 meters (330 feet).
This watch is powered by Citizen's unique Eco-Drive, which absorbs sunlight and any artificial light through the crystal and dial to recharge the watch continuously. With regular exposure to light, the Eco-Drive continuously recharges itself for a lifetime of use. This watch's Eco-Drive provides a 178-day power reserve, and it can be recharged with just 2 hours of exposure to light.
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.

I'm 54 years old and wanted a watch that would make easier for me to see the time even without my glasses on.
This is the one. The anti-reflective coating on the mineral crystal really works, the black dial combined with the white hands and time markers allow you to see the time precisely.
I'm used to wear my watch at all times, When I'm at the gym, When I'm swiming, etc. and it's of utermost importance the watch is 100% waterproof. The 330ft waterproof feature is just perfect for me. Few women's watches have that feature.
It's not a mid size watch though it's rather small: 6mm thick, 2.4 diameter total, and 1.9mm diameter, just the black dial alone.
Not having to replace batteries of course is a plus, also because once the watch has been opened for battery replacement, the waterproof feature in most watches I've had goes away...
Great price, wonderful timepiece!
UPDATE July 12, 2008:
I've had this watch on my wrist long enough now. Just wanted you all to know it works as great as the day I got it. Precise time display, no leakage (I swim with it). Just perfect!!!
As a pediatric nurse practitioner in a busy Surgery Center, I see between 25 and 30 children each day in preparation for surgery. I wash my hands before seeing each child. Every time I've had a battery reach the point of being replaced, the jeweler has cautioned me that the waterproof guarantee will be null if he opens the case. I decided that replacing watches after replacing batteries and destroying the waterproof seal was silly, and began the hunt for an alternative. The Citizen ecodrive watch is the perfect solution. Now, if I only had access to sunshine during work hours...

This is such a pretty watch. I wanted a smaller face, and this is it. The only thing bad about it is, as others have mentioned, you cannot see the date!Published 15 months ago by Amazon Customer

Like other reviewers said, it is heavier than any other watch I have had. I only notice that when I pick it up. When it's on my wrist I don't even know it's there. Read morePublished 16 months ago by Laura V.
I received this watch as a gift and I am extremely excited about it. I haven't had it for more than a week, so I can't really judge the charge capabilities. Read morePublished 16 months ago by J. Spears
