5.0 out of 5 stars Comparison with prior edition Citizen Skyhawk, March 22, 2010
This review is from: Citizen Men's JY0010-50E Eco-Drive "Skyhawk A-T" Titanium Watch (Watch)
I owned the previous model Citizen Eco-Drive Skyhawk Titanium and recently bought the Skyhawk AT Titanium. Here is a comparison for others who are considering the upgrade. The new edition:

* Has a larger face, with a more readable UTC dial and larger digital display. The face is much more visible at night.

* Has a louder alarm. You still won't hear it if the watch is under a pillow, and don't even think about in the cockpit, but it is much improved. The new edition has 2 alarms instead of 3.

* Does a great job synchronizing with the national time signal. I'm 1000 miles from the signal in Colorado, and I get a strong signal during the day near a window, and also inside at night -- when the auto-sync is scheduled.

* Does not stop the second hand in the dark. The old model would quit ticking when the lights went out. I never minded that the second hand stopped -- it ensured that I never heard the ticking at night. Fortunately the new model is absolutely silent.

* Requires the crown to be pulled out in order to change modes. On the older model, one could just twist the crown without pulling it out. The new way is a minor inconvenience. At least the new crown is larger, with better texture, so it's much easier to pull out.

* Has white numbers painted on a plastic black bezel for the E6B circular slide rule flight computer. These are easier to read than the prior edition's black numbers engraved in titanium, but I doubt they will last as long.
