5.0 out of 5 stars Great Watch, April 26, 2006
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Citizen Men's AT0200-05E Eco-Drive Stainless Steel Watch with Green Canvas Band (Watch)
I upgraded to the eco-drive from a watch that recharged by wrist motion. So far I'm a lot happier with the eco-drive. It holds a charge a lot longer, so it's not a problem to leave it unworn for a day or two. I didn't like the green military style band on this one, but it was easy to swap for a leather 20mm band. The stock band was a tad small for my wrist. I would expect a lot of men would need to swap it. The numbers look big in the picture, and they're big on the watch. I like the big numbers, others might not.

May 2008 Update:
I still like this watch as much as the day it arrived! It works perfectly, never runs out of battery and looks good. For those of you who haven't paid for a decent watch, you might not realize you're missing out on a good quality glass / crystal face. Mine still is scratch free. The watch looks pretty much brand new, even though I wear it every day.

I am looking at pruchasing this watch but would be interested in swapping out the band. Where did you find the leather band?

Awesome review! Simply, extremely helpful!!!

I was about to Add to Cart when I noticed you used a 20mm strap and the item description says it is 21mm. How does the 20mm look on this watch? (this is to decide what strap width to get for the watch)... THANK YOU!!!!!

John, I would GREATLY appreciate your help with this question I have, it's bugging me:
The date apparently changes from 9 PM to 1 AM. I used to own an Orient Automatic Black Mako that worked the same way and started changing the date at night and finishing at 1-2 AM-ish; I didn't like that (purely personal preference, of course), but I'm wondering if this Eco-Drive will do the same.
If the date changes gradually from 9 PM - 1 AM, I won't buy it. If it changes instantly at midnight, it's a plus for me.

Thank you for your helpful review.

Sincerely,
Daniel Martinez

Good question. Would you mind saying if you found the answer to it? That would also bug the hell out of me... ty

flyer says:
Did you find out if a 20mm or a 22mm would fit this "21mm spec"?
Maratac only makes 20 or 22, and since I'll likely be switching out the band as well I'm wondering if either size would fit...
thanks
