The watch is so good i don't wear it to work lol, i don't wanna take a chance on scratching it. I think i will purchase another citizen watch just for work and keep this one for leisure. I messed with the watch for a good 20 mins and found just about every function fairly easily, it is very easy to set.
All in all, this watch is a very, very good purchase. Probably the best purchase i made since coming back from Iraq besides my 40'inch Sony Bravia. If you remotely like the looks of this watch then look no further, buy it!
- Negatives -
First 2 negative comments are more directed to Citizen than this watch:
1) Wish they would put Sapphire crystals in more of their USA watches (neither this watch or BL8000-11X has Sapphire).
2) Very shiny, polished casing (love the look, but very vulnerable to scratches).
3) Date is pretty small and hard to read unless the lighting is really good.
- Positives -
1) Extremely rich looking and more of a Cordovan color (burgundy brown). The face at times looks more normal brown, but often looks cordovan. If looks is the only thing you're hinging the purchase on, then buy this watch. Pictures don't come close to how nice it looks.
2) Simple to use and set up. At first was seriously questioning BL8000-11X, since it has both an alarm and the perpetual calendar; however, the alarm is way too cumbersome for me, and I LOVE alarms on my watches, but gave it up when I played with it. Unless you want an alarm that will almost always be used at the same time of day each time, I would rule out most of the Citizen watches.
3) Changing the time and the date is simple, like any regular traditional watch, so ease of use is really simple, and there is nothing to setup or remember. Questioned getting perpetual calendar and the radio synching, which my Casio Solar-Waveceptor has, but settled on looks, ease, and eco-drive being most important (for Citizen watches that is, other Watch makers do a better job in providing a feature packed watch that is easy to use).Read more ›
On a separate note, boo to Amazon for recommending at checkout that I buy batteries for a solar powered watch!
I'm usually not wearing a watch, and I bought this one for times when I want to dress up for events.
In the 9-10 months that I owned it, I probably worn it 15 times.
A couple of days ago I noticed that the band is peeling.
I was, too, surprised to hear that Citizen doesn't consider this to be part of the warranty. The thing is not even a year old.
I really thought that I'm getting a great watch from a reputable company, but I guess not.
Update: that was written 3.5 years ago and my watch is still going strong. Sadly, my dog dropped it on the tile floor so, I'm looking at replacing the crystal for the 2nd time. The leather band is starting to peel/disiintegrate on the inside around the hole I use. But, it isn't visible. I have heard exact Citizen replacement bands are around $60 or so.
