From the manufacturer
By applying Citizen's proprietary surface hardening technology Duratect to crafted solid titanium we created Super Titanium which is up to 5 times harder than stainless steel.
Titanium is approximately 40% lighter than stainless steel, making Citizen's Super Titanium a treat to wear; a watch so light that you might forget that you're wearing it.
Super Titanium is hypo-allergenic making it a great choice for those who suffer from the skin irritation which may be caused by a regular stainless steel watch.
Super Titanium is more resistant to corrosion including to salt water. Wherever you are and whatever you do, you can rely on your watch looking its very best
Eco-Drive: The Watch that Never Needs a Battery
Powered by Light
Eco-Drive is designed to convert both natural and artificial light into energy to power watches. This means that you do not require any battery replacement, charging or winding to maintain constant operation.
Easy to Charge
No matter the quality of the light, Eco-Drive watches can charge from any natural or artificial light-source. This means that even in dim light your watch will keep on charging, making Eco-Drive practical and easy to use.
Keeps Running in the Dark
Featuring a lithium-ion cell which stores energy converted from light within the watch. Complete with low energy warning and power save mode, when fully charged Eco-Drive watches can run for up to 7 years even in the dark.
Kind to the Planet
Eco-Drive watches never need a battery change, which can leach chemicals and pollute landfills. Since 1976, Citizen has kept an estimated over 75 million batteries out of landfill sites.

Even though the watch lacks a perpetual calendar, you need not worry about resetting it for months with less than 31 days. That's because the date is so small and recessed so deep into the face that it is virtually impossible to see without the aid of a magnifying glass (NOT an exaggeration). This is certainly not evident in the photos and is a major design flaw - no other way to characterize it.
A major reason I purchased this watch was the light-weight Titanium - roughly half the density of steel. Yes, it is lighter than a steel watch with a steel band, but considerably heavier than a steel watch with a leather band. That's not Citizen's fault. That's my own fault for not thinking it through. If you want a really light watch then go for titanium with a leather band!
The large "second hand" does not work - it is stuck on 12! That's because what would normally be the "second hand" is used for the chronograph/stop watch. The actual second hand is in one of the tiny insert circles. I prefer the standard second hand layout
After buying the watch, I regretted not getting one with radio control - many available at similar prices. In fact, I just placed an order for Citizen Men's CB0020-50E World Perpetual A-T Dress Watch.
Here are a couple positives that may not be obvious: The actual color is better than it appears in the photo. On my computer screen the watch appeared to be VERY dark green - not quite black. It is jet black. Also, it is much easier to read the time in almost all lighting conditions than some other Citizen watches. I purchased the Citizen Men's AT8013-17E Eco-Drive Limited Edition World Chronograph Dress Watch. It is a beautiful watch but can be difficult to read the time under some lighting conditions unless turned at just the right angle.
Hope my review helps some of you.
Sapphire Crystal Face
Cons: Date hand does not automatically adjust to months with less than 31 days
Black coloring may show scratches more easily than titanium without coating
This watch had all the qualities I required in a present for my other half. It's titanium, so despite the fact that the face is large, it's lightweight. The face is large enough to make a statement without being ridiculously over-sized. It's solar powered, so no more worrying about batteries. It's got a chronograph so that certainly makes keeping track of small moments of time during the day much easier. The luminosity on the hands and at each hour is bright enough to see in the dark without keeping you up all night long.
One word of warning: if you’re picky about a watch looking pristine, I would highly recommend you pass on this watch. The black finish isn’t super durable, and any scratches you get really show through. It seems to be some sort of titanium anodizing, but don’t quote me on that. I’m nearly positive it’s not some sort of paint though, if that matters to you. Anyway, if you’re SUPER careful/gentle you’ll be okay, but keep this in mind before purchasing.
Oddly though, this issue is a HUGE feature for me. I WANT this watch to show these scars. I do a lot of work with my hands and I love the idea of a beaten up “Mad Max looking” watch as my daily watch that shows my natural wear points and bumps and bruises. Basically a watch hat shows it has lived a life—a watch with it’s own unique character.
