5.0 out of 5 stars Cool watch but smaller than described, March 23, 2008
This review is from: Citizen Men's BM8180-03E Eco-Drive Stainless Steel Watch with Green Canvas Band (Watch)
This watch looks well made, and the dial is easy to read. The day date feature is a nice touch compared to just the date, and it is dual language selectable. Another outstanding feature is the 100m water resistance (WR). This is a good indicator of high quality. The 30m and 50m ratings seems much more common, even on watches described as being in the military category. It's not as though it needs to match a dive watch rating, but a military person should be able to snorkel or swim across a stream or river without compromising the watch -- 30m just does not cut it (50m is debatable), but fortunately Citizen did not cut any corners here.

I feel that the website description is misleading. I measured the watch case diameter as 36mm. Then I searched for the watch on other websites, and one of them indicated it was 37mm (which I disagree with). The 40mm mentioned in the description evidently included the setting crown and that should have been clearly stated.

Because I prefer a larger size, I only owned this watch for 2 days before I returned it. Overall if you do not mind a medium size, this watch is a great value and should last for many years, which is why I still give it 5 stars. I would not hesitate to buy one again if Citizen comes out with a 40mm model for my 7.25" wrist.

Thank you for the details on case size. It's a shame more watch reviews don't get that specific, or that the product descriptions are often inaccurate on that measurement.
