I love this watch. It screams classy! The face is a little on the large side so please read the description carefully, but since I am on the stocky side it suits me perfectly. Normally I like watches with no markings on the face but I had purchased the d'orsay and loved it so much and this one was so similar I thought I would give it a try.
The numerals are bold, the diamonds around the face give it an upscale feel, the band is simple and stately and the best part ... blue hands! Now I can't imagine who thought that blue hands on an otherwise white and silver watch was a good idea but kudos to them. They won me over. Such a gorgeous timepiece. Why buy anything else?

I love this watch for several reasons.
1. Eco-Drive means NO BATTERIES!!!
2. Love the diamond accents and the blue hands
3. Large display
4. It is NOT flimsy.
5. Water resistant.
6. Easy to clean.
I have another Eco-drive by citizens and I love it. So, why did I purchase another? The first one was a gift. It is very pretty and works wonderfully. I have now had it for 5 years with no complaints. But it is small and my eyes are getting older and it is gold tone while I prefer the stainless steel.
I am usually very rough on watches but after 5 years with my old Citizen's Eco-drive, it still looks fabulous with not a single scratch or chip on the crystal.
Yes it is more expensive than the $30 watch from your local store. However, if you have to replace batteries every 6-12 months and watchbands almost as often, then invest in a Citizens Eco-drive. NO BATTERIES and a very sturdy band. A $30 watch usually needs $30 in batteries and watches every year or so. Within 10 years or so, you will have spent enough money to purchase a good quality watch that will last much longer than the 10 years.

My wife Loves her watch, had spoken of none other as she has this one, I think that the only problem there might be with it is, "If someone tried to take it from her :-)" Thanks, works just as stated, and looking forward to the future with it!
