I particularly wanted a brass or gold coloured watch with a brown leather strap. This one from Citizen caught my eye, neither too big nor too small, with its pearly white face and crisp metal figures, and the price seemed reasonable. I have had this watch for 18 months now. You can't review such a product until you have thoroughly road-tested it. People have commented on how attractive it is. It keeps good time, and a huge plus is the Eco-drive, driven by solar energy, thus requiring no batteries or mechanical winding.

Now the down side. First, the strap is cheap and nasty. In six months you will be replacing it. Second, the date is so small and lacking contrast, it's hard for someone with normal eyesight to see. Finally, the adjustment knob is extremely fiddly. It has two positions, one for the date and one for the time. Whenever a month has less than 31 days, you will have to adjust the date manually. But I ended up using my teeth to pull the knob out to the correct position.

It would appear you can't have beauty *and* functionality without forking out a lot of money.

I was put off by some of the negative reviews, so did not order for a long while. But my existing quartz, twelve years old, although it keeps excellent time, often runs out, always just when I am far away from any possibility of a replacement. I was so taken with the concept of no battery to change - ever - that I recently went ahead and spoiled myself for my birthday.

This is a fine watch - elegant appearance, apparently well made, keeps perfect time and is excellent value for money. The most serious negative reviews appear to be due to either not reading, or not understanding, the instructions, which are not very good. Surely Citizen could get a watchmaker, an artist and an English graduate to sit down for an hour together and prepare a clearly understandable, accurate description of how to set the watch. Or put a video on youtube (oh, I may be an old fart, but I'm with it !!)

He who complained about the days being in "Spanish" apparently did not notice that as the crown wheel is rotated to set the days, as instructed, they appear in English, German and French, in fixed sequence. Therefore if you first set it in English, subsequent automatic changes are always in English. (I managed to get it wrong however - I set it on Mon, assuming Monday, but in fact it was Montag ! Somewhat puzzled when days in German subsequently appeared, but soon figured out and reset correctly).

He who complained of a fiddly crown wheel would also have been better served by clear instructions. Holding the watch between thumb and forefinger of both hands, face up, with the crown wheel on the right, the crown wheel can be easily pulled out to first or second "click", under full control, by slipping the side of the nail of the index finger just between the crown wheel and the case.

Sits comfortablyon wrist, Clear easy face to read,
Need to read instructions carefully to set, by putting
finger nail under the button to pull out it is easy to
set even with reumatic fingers.

I bought this watch for my husband and he absolutely loves it! It's a beautiful watch and with comfortable leather strap. His wedding band is yellow gold so it goes with that and he loves that it's solar powered and the date is on there. We both couldn't be more pleased with this watch :)

I think the watch is good value as I was just after a basic one , although it does have the day and date display which I did find a bit of a fiddle to set correctly but I am pleased with it .

Great watch, good value, though 6 moths later the strap is looking very worn and i may replace the strap.
No problems with it otherwise

Bought this watch for a fellow lecturer. When it came I was happy to be met with a watch that actually looks better in real life than its picture. Fantastic value for money and would easily pass for a far more expensive model. A fantastic present for any time of the year.
