I received the watch as a present for my birthday. My wife did the best surprise ever.Usualy I hate to be surprised in any way, but this time she hit my soft spot- I love watches.
I love everything about the watch. It looks stunning,it is very comfortable to wear, it is Eco-drive- no need to change bateries,and because of the Quartz mechanism it is very precise. Perpetual calendar is very useful feature. It was very easy to adjust the leather stripe to my wrist. It is simple watch with the most importaint features for my needs, I do not need chronograph, nor thermometers, barometers and other meters, I like my watch to be simple, reliable and stylish.
Citizen Calibre 8700 is one of the best watches considering money for value .

Very nice watch,never having to change the battery is the main attraction so the watch never gets opened, but also a good feature is the perpetual calender.
A downside for me was the leather strap with butterfly strap which was very irritating and I finally managed to get a metallic strap from Citizen ( it was not easy as apparently they don't sell spare parts for a watch not sold in the country).
After six months, I now have the strap, two tones silver and I like it a lot.
The watch with white face and metallic strap is the 54L and is sold abroad or sometimes on Amazon or Ebay.

Nice looking watch, feels well put together and not too heavy on the wrist, and I like the whole light charging bit. Two problems as far as I'm concerned. One, the method of fasting the wrist strap is just plain daft and far to convoluted - try wearing it on your left wrist if you are left handed and doing the peculiar buckle up! Why o' why couldn't they have stuck to something simple, and quick. It maybe that I had a faulty strap and buckle but, do it up I could not.

Two, the dial is quite busy, lots going on and, for those of us with `older' eyes one has to peer to see what's what more than one would like. But, no getting away from the fact that it's a classy dial. Have sent mine back, Amazon great returns policy, thanks.

Spent a lot of time searching for a watch and this turns out to meet all my requirements. Delivery was very fast,I live in Norway, and on opening the box and looking at the product I was not disappointed. Very clear, easily read dial, showing information about time, date, day, 24 hour clock and if required month as well as sweeping second hand. Have had it for some 10 days and appears to keep excellent time, looks very smart, has perpetual calender and not least, never needs winding or a new battery (Citizens "Eco Drive") eliminates that. Being of the "Grey Brigade" had never come across a butterfly strap before but after a few minutes fiddling around found the secret of opening and adjusting it and works perfectly for me. Added bonus, correct time , date etc. had been preset so was able to use it straight away. So as you can tell, this watch is really "The Bee's Knees" and at a very reasonable price for its performance.

It has been quite some time since I wanted to buy a Calibre 8700 based watch. Finally took the plunge and bought this one and I must say that I love this watch.
Right size of dial - not too big, not too small and goes with a good formal attire.
Perpetual calendar is a great feature and not to mention eco-drive - the main reason I bought this watch (eco-drive is just brilliant)

Some cons if I can list any would be:
Some of the functions are..what can I say not that useful (second time zone, month) as it takes time to go to that particular mode and then see the hands move into position. It is far more easier to find the time at second time zone or think what month it is.
I didn't see any date/product details on the warranty document that I got along with my watch. I was wondering if something happens in the next 5 years, how do I claim my warranty...probably will check with Amazon

I bought this watch about a month ago and I like the dial design very much. I noticed some comments about the strap buckle. The strap buckle does push into the skin a little if it is tight, however there are no sharp edges that bite into the skin, so it is not uncomfortable.
I have a fairly thin wrist and the holes in the strap are not enough, but i guess you can make extras. Also you can change the strap yourself quite easy. About the size, it is a good small-medium size for a dress watch, but i think just a little small for a (business)casual everyday watch. Overall i'm happy with my purchase and it actually depends on personal taste.

Superb watch. Keeps time almost perfectly (I haven't had to adjust it yet, after eight weeks). It would have managed to garner five stars easily if it weren't for the absolutely dreadful strap. Intended to preserve the strap (being leather) by not allowing it to bend, the clasp seems clever at first until you realise that it has to bend anyway in order to get the end through the retaining loop, and it is very difficult to get a setting and position on the arm which is not either uncomfortable or loose.

the dial feels a little bit smaller in general. I have a collection of 3 chronographs.. This particular one I use it in my professional meetings. As I mentioned, it would have been the best one in my collection, had it come with a slightly bigger dial. The strap feels broader than the dial itself, and therefore, making it OKAY in looks.
