5.0 out of 5 stars Citizen - who'd have thought it?, December 7, 2005
This review is from: Citizen Men's BJ7000-52E Nighthawk Stainless Steel Eco-Drive Watch (Watch)
This is the first Citizen brand watch I've ever bought, and so far, it's as good or better quality than more expensive TAGs I've owned. About the only thing missing (aside from a stopwatch, as noted earlier - but that's debatable if you're not a serious aviator) is a sapphire crystal, which would probably prevent scratches a little better than the standard mineral crystal. For this price, though, I'm not complaining.

I like the layout, the overall appearance and something else nobody mentioned - the band clasp is a very smart design. Not only does it have something similar to the Rolex "Flip-Lock" clasp, but the main clasp has what can best be described as a squeeze lock, which must be pressed together from the sides of the band to release it from the wrist. This thing isn't coming off accidentally.

I got the stainless version, but there is a titanium one available as well as an all-black version. The all black version looked kinda cheap and the titanium was more money, so stainless was the one I chose. Even though I'm not a pilot, the slide rule is functional (perhaps even useful, in some situations) and the instructions for it are easily understood. All that and a five year warranty. And I always equated Citizen with cheaper-made watches - I stand corrected. No regrets.

all descriptions on the watch clearly denote a mineral crystal. is the information present wrong?

If you read the review carefully, you will see that this watch lacks a sapphire crystal, and the standard crystal is mineral.

[[get a Seiko with sapphire]]

He said, "No regrets" so I take it he likes the watch generally.

Been there, done that. The two $1000+ TAG watches I've owned did not hold up as well as this watch has - still wearing it now!
