The Citizen Eco-Drive Blue Angels World Chronograph A-T is a radio-controlled perpetual calendar chronograph world timer with atomic timekeeping in 5 time zones (North America, the UK, Europe, Japan and China) and automatic time in 26 world cities. Specific functions also include a 1/20 second chronograph that measures up to 60 minutes, perpetual calendar, 12/24 hour time, day-date, alarm and power reserve indicator. This handsome timepiece in stainless steel with blue ion plated bezel features an intricate blue and yellow dial, non-reflective sapphire crystal, and a patterned blue leather strap with buckle revealing yellow on its reverse. Named for the elite flight squadron of the U.S. Navy, this Blue Angels watch is as graceful and accurate as the group's piloted precision, with their official insignia appearing on the case back of this 200 meter water resistant watch. Citizen Eco-Drive is fueled by light, any light, so it never needs a battery. Combined with atomic timekeeping, it is the most accurate watch in the world. The use of the Blue Angels name and logo is with the permission, but not endorsement, of the U.S. Navy.

Diagram of Features
As a true manufacture d’horlogerie, CITIZEN integrates a comprehensive manufacturing process from creating individual components to a watch’s final assembly. It’s an artisan’s approach to watch making based on pushing forward the boundaries of technology and leveraging our experience toward exploring new possibilities.
One pivotal technological breakthrough was the development of a light-driven watch. CITIZEN pioneered this engineering innovation well ahead of other watch manufacturers as early as 1976, which led to the launch of the highly acclaimed Eco-Drive in 1995. Utilizing electrical power converted from virtually any light source, this extraordinary innovation changed forever the way watches could be powered. Eco-Drive eliminated the need to ever replace batteries, which made it especially beneficial to areas where such specialist batteries were not obtainable. This leveled the field for citizens of virtually every country to be able to experience unrestricted joy of wearing and using a CITIZEN watch.
The product development policy, “The Fusion of Technology and Beauty,” remains a constant motivation for us to merge cutting-edge technology with perfection of design beauty, which as a consequence inspires people to strive to be their best at any time.
CITIZEN launches a new campaign in collaboration with Wieden+Kennedy, Better Starts Now. This is the simple belief that no matter who you are or what you do, it is always possible to make something better — and now is the time to start doing it. We believe that better and now are both infinite, and that there is always a next ‘better’ and a new ‘now’ in which you can start pursuing it. It was clear from the onset of this project that we are dedicated to this ideal…not to the past but to the present, and all the way we can improve it. To help communicate this belief to the world we have created a new global CITIZEN brand movie, brand identity and brand website that represents out Better Starts Now philosophy.

The watch itself is fabulous. I was comparing this to the Skyhawk, and I'm really glad I went with this one. First, it's closer to a reasonable size. 43mm vs. 45mm makes a lot of difference. The face is less busy and more classic, and most importantly this watch has a sapphire crystal. I cannot emphasize how important that can be if you plan to wear this often.
I love the atomic time and the time zone support. It's fantastic to know the watch is always accurate. I live in the suburbs in NC, a long way away from the station in Denver, and it updates most every night. It's not every single night, but it's more than frequent enough to stay accurate (6 nights out of 7).
If I can give you one piece if advice... Stop looking at this one and get the version with the stainless steel bracelet. The band is utter crap. I've never seen a watch where the buckle has sharp edges on the inside, but now I've seen it all. Your options with this band are to wear it so loose that the watch constantly rotates around your wrist, or suffer the sharp edges of the buckle digging into your inner wrist. Those are your options.
Get this watch. It's great. But get the version with the bracelet like I should have.
I couldn't stand the stock band any longer, so I replaced it. For those of you that are curious, Hadley-Roma makes a blue 24MM silicone strap that fits perfectly, matches and is incredibly comfortable. Amazon sells it for less than $20 and it makes this watch perfect. It baffles me why Citizen would make such a great watch with such an uncomfortable watch/buckle, but it's easily remedied and you end up with a really great watch. The watch does have a 23MM lug width, but the spring bars are curved and a flexible 24MM band fits well and looks great.
The markings on the face are high quality and the second hand hits each mark precisely. This is a good sign of quality. The yellow and blue looks good with the highly polished steel case. The band looks a little paler than shown in the photos so it does not look quite as good as it ought (in my opinion) to match the quality of the case and face. Overall though it seemed to be an excellent watch.
Unfortunately in April 2015 the watch started to randomly gain or lose time and even the date. This was completely random and not related to the setting of the watch. It was sent to Citizen in Australia for assessment and repair. Citizen advised today that they are unable to repair the watch. The consultant could not tell me exactly what the watchmaker had said but apparently the necessary parts to repair this watch are unavailable - this may be a problem peculiar to Australia. Anyway, a day later Citizen advised they could fix it after all and I can have it back on Monday....

This watch looks good and is not too heavy or bulky on my wrist.
This is an update of prior Blue Angel versions and drops the LCD displays in favor of better features such as radio time setting.
It is a bit complex to operate the fancy features and the slide rule calculator is beyond my comprehension but even if you touch nothing, the watch keeps time without needing to set it and stays powered up forever as long as it gets a dose of sunlight every week or so.
It has many features but none of them particularly useful to me. Mainly they are just fun to show other people. I do occasionally need to squint hard to read the day. It is shown by a tiny pointer and with tiny print.
The watch seems very well made and I expect to have no problems with it ever.
