4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent watch for the money., February 13, 2012
By 
This review is from: Citizen Men's BM8475-00F Black Canvas Strap Eco-Drive Watch (Watch)
This is my third Citizen and Eco-Drive watch, and I had to have it the moment I saw it.

The black-on-black dial with the PVD body is, quite frankly, striking, and easily beats out my Calibre 3100 as my favorite Citizen model. I was looking at the Stiletto for years, but this watch brings a heft and durability to the table that the stiletto lacks and is hard to beat for the price.

I have small wrists, and it is a bit big but fits comfortably. The band is high-quality, though I'd have liked for the buckle to match the PVD coating on the watch body. A Zulu Nato strap would enhance this watch's stealth military look.

The crown sits out away from the body and has a nice notched texture which makes it easy to pull out without fingernails.

The numbers, notches, and hands are all lumed, meaning they do glow in the dark (somewhat). The lume adds a slight white tint, which creates just enough contrast to read the watch comfortably. The lume doesn't seem bright enough, but that can be fixed with a re-lume kit.

Overall, I'm very pleased with this watch. I've been looking for a watch like this. and I am glad Citizen stepped in and offered one.
