I did a lot of looking around for watches before I purchased this one. Citizen gets great reviews everywhere I look. I wanted a watch that I could use in a variety of situations, that was simple yet elegant and this watch fit the bill. It does not have a lot of features (Which is just what I wanted!). It tells the time, the date, has a second hand and never needs a new battery (thanks to eco-drive). There isn't anything else I want a watch for. I'm not a pilot, diver etc... so I don't need all the other features the pricier watches have.
It took a jeweler about 3 minutes to take a couple links out so the watch fit my arm. The face of this watch isn't very big and it fits nicely. Having never worn a watch before, I do notice the weight but after a couple days of wearing it I've stopped noticing that too.
