I really loved this watch
on July 20, 2017
UPDATE: I sent the watch in under warranty, and instead of getting my watch back fixed, I got an estimate from Citizen for repair of $215.02. LOL. Description seems to put the responsibity on me (at least I infer--since they claim it's internally rusty and the caseback gasket is worn. Well isn't that their responsibility? Citizen warranty is obviously worthless. I did like the watch, but I'm lowering my rating to 2 stars because of that. Find another brand, or perhaps spend less and just buy a new one every three years.
I really loved this watch. Very nice looking, very lightweight and thin. However, at around 3 years old, the hour hand stopped moving past 12. So now it's always 12-something. I can send it in for service under the 5 year warranty, and will, but it's going to be very inconvenient to be without the watch while it's gone (and we'll still need to see how well the warranty is honored). I still have a self-winding Seiko sports watch that I've had since I was 13, almost 50 years ago, which still works. It's just too heavy and it also it has an orange face, so not something for daily wear anymore.
