Almost Makes the Grade,
This review is from: Citizen Women's EW0894-57D Eco-Drive Riva Diamond-Accented Watch (Watch)
I've spent the last 8 months trying to get the right watch for me, and this watch met all my criteria. It is really pretty, 2-toned to match my gold or silver jewelry, can be worn dressy to casual, has a second hand, the contrast between the numbers (representation in this case) and the MOP face was good, it glows in the dark, the added Citizen benefit of the Eco-drive--which I love the solar power, and the calender.
Let's be clear about the calender--you can't read it. It's so hard to see. I can read the Eco-drive on the face, which is very small and light font, easier. The box is small (which probably could have been taken care of with magnification), and the contrast behind the MOP face makes it a dark small box with something written on it.
As you can see, the watch still rates 4 stars for me because the other elements are great, and I am keeping and wearing the watch. But to not be able to read the calender, to me, is a design flaw that could have easily been rectified.
