Powerful and understated, this ion-plated stainless steel Watch #BM6555-54E from Citizen's solar powered Eco-Drive Collection combines the elegance of a monochromatic black color palette with the convenience of battery-free operation. A rectangular case with slightly bowed sides complements a bold black dial with white tipped hands, silver-tone square markers, and a convenient date display at three o'clock.

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.

Three year report: I am still very pleased with the watch. No cosmetic issues, it has not lost or gained a second and I have received several positive comments about it while wearing it. Buy it, you'l like it!
So far I have owned the watch for two years and the ion plating has not begun to fade and the plating is decently scratch resistant. If the battery runs out it does not take long to charge back up under any source of light.
The only downside to this watch is that it is not waterproof, just splash resistant. I usually wear this unless I am doing work outside or around water; it works very well in both casual and formal settings.
I am very pleased with this watch, Citizen did a superb job.
This is a great dress watch not just because of the looks but also the functionality of how thin it is to easily fit under all but the tightest fitting cuffs. Very easy to read dial and have made no effort to keep the watch charged other than normal use.
I have long felt that 10 watches could cover almost any occasion and the sleek black rectangular watch is a very popular design with many brands doing their own version and would be a great addition to anyone's 10 watch collection for all occasions. Very highly recommended.
I really like that it's an Eco-Drive, and that it's black. I wear my watch sun up to bed time and after only a couple of weeks, though, and I can see a couple spots on the band that are wearing through the black color already. If that continues, I'll have to lower my review. I do type a lot at work, but that piece is normally actually resting on a cloth-covered gel wrist pad. I may be forced to not wear this around the house, just to try to keep the finish from wearing off. I'll update this review once I've had it a bit longer to let you know about the color.
Update 9/10/13: The watch itself is great, holding up well - but as I feared the parts on the underside of the watch that will touch a table/desk/keyboard rest when my hand is palm down is fading more and more as time goes on. It's not TERRIBLY noticeable unless you're looking straight at it, but not only are the edges a little worn down to the silver underneath but there is also a chip in the middle of the band as well. Great watch, just wish their coating was more durable.
