4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful watch with not so beautiful instructions, June 2, 2011
This review is from: Citizen Men's BL5400-52A Eco-Drive Stainless Steel Sport Watch with Link Bracelet (Watch)
I bought this watch as a Christmas gift for my father since it was such an eye-catcher walking around the jewelry store. My dad and I both love Breitling branded watches and I decided to buy this for him since it looks so much like one of Breitling's popular models. The watch is decently big, has a gorgeous face and is lightweight. I prefer heavier watches but I know my dad does not.

Anyways, this watch is sure to catch a lot of attention with the wonderful detail that was bestowed upon its design. The fact that the watch functions on solar power and on artificial light is an even bigger plus.

The build on the watch is great. The stainless steel and glass look promising although slightly flimsy since the watch feels so lightweight.

The only drawbacks I can say about the watch (and I won't get into specifics) are the complications one has to go through to manipulate the time, date and its other features. For example: To change the time you ave to click one knob until the second hand is perfectly aligned, then release two different knobs, then release the middle one, correct the time and then do another complicated set of tasks to return it back to original state to wear it. The watch even has a feature to correct daylight savings time. This process is part of the time changing process but requires extra steps. For a watch, it's beautiful and all but has so many features that it makes the watch extremely complicated to do simple tasks like changing time.

Don't let this stop you, though. The watch is definitely worth the price and time that could be spent on it and I have never had any problems with Citizens (there are 3 in my home). But as a fair warning, the manual will not tell you how to function with the watch (or at least my manual didn't). You will have to research the instructions at the citizen watch website. All I can say is if you get the hang of it, you have one insanely powerful watch on your wrist.
