This watch is really fantastic. It's a bit heavy but rests comfortably on the wrist and I quickly got used to it. I really enjoy the smooth silky finish of the stainless steel strap. The strap is easily adjustable with the simple tool I also bought from Amazon. In spite of its excellent design, it shows off in an unobtrusive way. I've been going through the instructions manual and so far, I've not experienced any hassles with setting it up. Setting up the time & alarm takes some getting used to, but it's interesting to watch the hand silently gliding to the expected positions. I set it up using the manual, but the included video even makes it easier to set up.
In my original review, I gave it 5 stars but that will tend to imply that the watch is perfect. Of course it is not. It is resting smuggly on my wrist right now. My only complaints are (1) the alarm is too quiet. The alarm definitely ough to be louder and the duration variable of alarm from just the 10 or so seconds preset (2) Only the hour and minute hands are illuminated at night. This makes it difficult to read at night. (3) The character for the small internal dials are not very bold. Well what do I expect?
I have no remorse buying this watch at all - just feeling good. This is my second Citizen Eco Drive watch and I am not disappointed at all. I'm giving 4 stars to Citizen and 5 stars to Amazon because, Amazon exceeded my expectations. Thank you.
