I have always had a seiko watch, but when my watch stopped my husband who also has a citizens Eco drive said just look at them before you buy another watch. I need a watch with second hand that is easily visualized as I am a nurse. This watch is easily read even in darker rooms. Once we set it up and let the light get it ready it has been perfect. Keeping perfect time . In addition to working like a dream it is a very pretty watch. The two tone coloring allows this watch to go well with other jewelry.
