Customer Reviews

Love my Citizen Eco-Drive #BM8180-03E
I love this watch. I bought it based on internet research only, never saw one in person before. It looks a lot better live than in the pictures. It's got a great weight and feel to it, even if the crown is a tad bit protruding, although the fine polish makes it seem less so than the pictures. Adjusting the time, day & date is very straight forward. The band is darker than all the pictures I saw, for which I'm glad, and it's comfortable and tough looking. So far no mechanical defaults whatsoever. My only real complaint about this sharp, well-made watch is that the seconds hand does not align with the minute markers on the face. Even so, I'm very satisfied with this watch.

Excellent Watch for Classic Casual
This has absolutely everything I was looking for in a casual watch. It has a timeless - classic look. You can wear it in the pool/shower. It has the day/date function. It's not a "fat" watch (width or depth).

Of course, it's also an Eco-Drive (my third). No idea why I find this power source so cool - but I definitely do! I've read quite a bit about the wrist band in reviews. Frankly, I tried to live with it, but even though it's made of quality stuff, I couldn't live with the over-sized metal eyelets - looks WAY too 70s for me. I replaced with a black leather/nylon field wristband (Speidel) from Walmart that looks & feels outstanding.

Holy cow, did I really only pay $81 for this beauty? That's a Timex/Casio plastic price for a really nice casual watch.
