Researched a lot on Citizen's collection of A-T Eco-Drive watches, and decided on this for my man, and he loved it!
Beautiful watch. I liked the photo, but when received the actual product, I found the contrast of the dark dial face, and the dual tone watch band, really made the watch striking and sophisticated looking. It's well-made and solid, albeit a little on the heavy side.
I managed to set up the watch myself, with the help of the Citizen's YouTube video. Amazon won't let me post the link for you here, but you can just copy and past the model number of the watch and search it on YouTube. Took a little time and patience, but after it's all set up, there's no need to do it again (unless you let it completely run out of battery.)
The switch from one pre-set city to another is easy, and so is the swap between the main time and the secondary time. I'm certain it will come super handy when he travels with it. Just not having to deal with adjusting the date and day of the month, ever, is worth the price.
As for nightly radio signal syncing, it worked in the northeast facing part of the house, and in the southern end, it's been hit and miss (we're in Los Angeles, CA, so I guess that makes sense, considering the radio signal is coming from Denver, CO). But to be fair, the instruction manual said to place the watch right next to the window, on the windowsill, and he hasn't bothered to do so (and we have wooden shutters). He's not too troubled by it, since what's important to him is the easy time change function, than the exact precision of time (the manual said that without syncing the watch may have + or - of 15 sec per day).
FYI, a little off topic, but I currently own a Citizen's Eco-Drive ladies watch, that has similar watch band. I have to say I am impressed that after about a year or more of daily wear and accidentally bangings, the watch still looks as new. Not a scratch on the band, no discoloration, and no sign of scratch on the glass. Kudos to Citizen!
