the leather strap had a cheap plastic-y feel. the strap closure was this weird snap buckle that ended up in a weird place on my wrist - it was either too loose or too tight and i couldn't adjust it to get it just right. the color is pretty and goes with everything but the "diamonds" are either really low quality stones or fake. i couldn't even tell if they were really there since they held no sparkle whatsoever. i usually love citizen ecodrive watches and own two others but this one was a fail and went back.
I love my watch! For a long time a had this watch in my wish list. The whole time I was reading reviews on it and all I got was good ones. Is beautiful, charming and the fact that I never need to change a batery on it it makes even better to have one. Thanks to amazon for the best deal on the price too.
The watch is beautiful. The band and the clasp are a little difficult to manipulate into place although when one gets it figured out, they interface very well together for sizing purposes. The watch is very utilitarian for dress or sport wear.
