Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

Sporting a rotating slide rule bezel, the Citizen Skyhawk A-T stainless steel men's flight watch offers advanced timing functions and the latest technology. It's powered by Citizen's unique Eco-Drive, which absorbs sunlight and any artificial light through the crystal and dial to recharge the watch continuously. The fast-forward timekeeping features include time and calendar in 43 cities, thirty cities, three world time alarms, a 99-minute countdown timer, one-touch interchangeable analog/digital time, and 1/100-second chronograph that measures up to 24 hours.

The large round silver stainless steel case measures 48mm (1.89 inches) wide and 16mm (0.63 inches) deep. The black dial background features large white hands with luminous tips as well as luminous square dial markers. It's completed by a stylish multi-link stainless steel bracelet band. Other features include water resistance to 200 metres (660 feet)--which will stand up to the rigors of recreational scuba diving.

Citizen Watches

The company was established in 1924. The founding fathers selected the name Citizen so it would be "Close to the Hearts of People Everywhere" and soon after adopted the company’s formal name, Citizen Watch Company.

During the last seventy-five years Citizen has expanded its business throughout the world and has achieved recognition as the global brand. The past twenty-five year period has coincided with the company’s dramatic rise to its current position as the world’s largest watchmaker, a distinction Citizen has held every year since 1986.

Beyond sheer size, Citizen is also recognized as a worldwide leader in advanced technology. From the world’s slimmest LCD watch to the first voice recognition watch and the world’s first professional dive watch with an electronic depth sensor, Citizen’s record of "world’s firsts" is unmatched.

More recently, Citizen has staked out a new position as the leader in Ecologically Friendly timekeeping with its Eco-Drives watches that are light powered. With models ranging from dress models to sports models to professional dive watches, Citizen Eco-Drive runs continuously in any kind of natural or artificial light for a lifetime of use. Fueled by light, it never needs a battery.

Eco-Drive Frequently Asked Questions (See the full Citizen Eco-Drive FAQ here)

How can you tell if the Eco-Drive watch is getting enough light?
In normal use, the watch displays the time and the sweep-second hand moves in one second intervals. A very important feature of Eco-Drive is the Low Charge Warning Mode which as a result of low battery voltage, causes the second hand to jump two seconds at a time (while still keeping correct time).

How long will an Eco-Drive watch run after it is fully charged?
If your watch is put away where no light is available to it while in a fully charged state, depending on the model, it will run for from 45 days to 5 years.

How can the Eco-Drive watch be recharged?
Besides sunlight, it can be safely charged by exposing it to a fluorescent desk lamp, with the dial (face) up and within about 8 inches or an incandescent lamp (regular light bulb) no closer than 20 inches. Never use a halogen lamp since the heat generated by it can cause damage to your watch. The most efficient and the quickest is in direct bright sunlight (not windowsill) and never on the dashboard of a car.

Citizen are one of the most respected watch makers in the world and this radio controlled Eco Drive watch is first class. No battery to worry about changing and auto adjusts each night or on demand. Multiple time zones with an easy switch over from one zone to another. This watch can appear daunting at first, however when set up is a jem to use. Picks up signal automatically from Germany, Japan or USA depending on where you are located. Citizen quality and leading edge technology. Stylish and very practical, you can`t go wrong with this, five year quarantee also !

Bought this watch as i have been wanting an ECO-drive for over 2 years.
I was going to buy the standard version from Argos @ £170, but I was never fully convinced on the looks of that model. Upon first sight i just wanted to have this 53E model.
I only realized that the ECO-drive was powered by light, when reading the booklet. I had read about it in the past but i just thought it was kinetic like other watches.
On full charge the power lasts for 6 months in a dark place. The power saving function worried the hell out of me at first as the LCD display and hands stop functioning. But with a button press or some light it self adjusts to the correct time.

The only nag i have is the constant display of the home location, and the fact that if you want the date displayed the same location is repeated.
At least i know the time is spot on give or take 15 seconds.

If you like the look of this watch as I do its a great buy. At the end of the day all watches tell the time, but its the technology and style that you pay for, and this watch gets big ticks from me on both counts.

Edit:
After reading the other review i felt the need to share my experience.
The power meter has four levels.
Level 1 is empty and its recommended to leave in sunlight until its fully charged. It should only get to this level if its been in a box for months.
Level 2 is 15 days charge,
level 3 is up to 3 months charge and
level 4 is the up to 6 months charge.

My watch has only ever been between levels 3 and 4. Until it reaches level 2 there is no need to charge it. I find that no matter how long you charge it in the sun, it will soon enough be indicating level 3.

I am a serviceman who regularly deploys on submarines for up to ten months at a time. I've had this watch now for a around 5 years and it is everything I need a watch to be.

The world time and quick switching facility between the dual times is very useful when overseas (or under them!) Being able to quickly see what time it is at home avoids those drunken calls home at 4am UK time!

I've never had any issues with the battery running out or not receiving sufficient charge even though it doesn't even see the sun for such long periods. I've never seen the battery level indicator read below level 2 and I've only seen at level 2 once and not for long.

The slide rule rotating bezel is particularly useful. Designed for speed, distance and time calculations, it can also be used for any multiplication or division calculations as well as other mathmatical functions. I often use the slide rule for currency conversion when abroad, adding tax at a curtain percent when required, working out fuel efficiency etc. I find this so useful that I would now buy another watch without this facility!

In fact, dispite having several watches, this is the only watch I ever wear!

So why only four stars? Well being an engineer the watch gets knocked about a bit. The steel strap and clasp have surface scratches condusive to 5 years worth of normal wearing but the thing that surprised me most is that the glass face doesn't appear to be scratch resistant. Dispite trying to take care with the watch while working, knocks do occur from time to time especially due to the general space contraints of a modern submarine, some scratches have developed on the glass.

To summerise, this is a watch that combines style with functionality so much so that you don't need another watch but could benifit from a scratch resistant face.

Thanks for reading.

To the overwhelmingly positive reviews here I can add little, except to endorse everything they say. This is a classic watch and a brilliant buy.

To anyone who's worried about the power supply to this watch, DON'T be. I've had one for 3 years and it's never failed me once. I don't wear it all the time and I don't leave it on a windowcill to charge - it's usually on a bedside table or in a drawer but the charge indicator never seems to fall much below maximum.

It's a superb watch, it really is. The only concern I have is about the rubber divers' strap which I have on my model. It lasted about 18 months from new and came apart without warning when the rubber split, fortunately as I was putting the watch on. When you read up about the rubber straps, there is a suggestion you should replace these every 2 years, as a precaution. Citizen replacements are ridiculously expensive (IIRC, over £45) but I ferreted about on e-Bay and decided to risk a generic replacement for well under a tenner. It's been absolutely fine - the clasp was rubbish but I re-used the original Citizen, without problem.

- Tom.
