Great Watch... Great Fit
I had been on the market for a little while trying to find a nice casual/dressy watch. I was all over the place looking at Seiko, Bulova, and Invicta, as well as many other brands, but kept coming back to Citizen.

The look and feel of this watch is great. Just enough weight to it to be comfortable. The selling point for me on this watch was that the simple functions yet had the look of a complicated watch. Looks like a chronograph at a quick glance but only has the 24hr clock and the seconds on the small dials. The date Is nice and large and I am excited about the perpetual-calendar and not having to adjust the thing every time Feb roles around (i know, silly to think that it takes such little time to change the date on most watches, but this has just a cool factor to it).

The dial has a nice size to is.

Another plus on this watch was the band. Nice two tone look and a nice size as well. I am not a small guy and often have problems finding watches that are large enough without having to send them out or wait on extra links to arrive. The width is nice and comfortable which doesn't impede hand movement. The clasp is nice and easy to operate and feels pretty secure.

I can't wear watches where I work, or at least nice ones with the risk of being beaten to death and horribly scratched so the Eco-drive was a nice choice over one that was automatic. In order for me to have had an automatic watch, i would have had to purchase one of the watch winders that keep the thing running when i wasn't wearing it. With the eco drive, the watch has a pretty good shelf life as far as charge goes and can be left out on you dresser to absorb light and stay charged while not wearing it.

I love this watch
this watch was a gift from my wife. it is an awesome time piece. it keeps precise time. it feels good on my wrist. and so far every where I go, I get compliments on it. It is just luxurious enough to go with any suit I own, and sporty enough to hang out with a pair of jeans. And looks great any where in between. I own a few other fancy watches and sport watches, and this is by far my favorite. And since I am at the age of needing reading glasses, with the large dial, hands and date, it is very easy to read. Setting the perpetual calendar was a bit confusing at first, but ended up being simple enough.
I hope to never have to, but I would buy another one if I had to.
