Bought this as my first everyday watch in years. Process for setting the watch was slightly complicated, but the video on the Citizen website was a big help. The watch has a great look and it's an Eco-Drive, meaning that once you set it - assuming you keep it exposed to light now and again to charge - you never have to worry about date changes or the battery running down. I don't really use the alarm but it's loud enough to wake you from sleep. Couldn't be happier with my purchase.
