Nice watch but fiddly
on 23 March 2013
After having worn a citizen ecodrive for the last 10 years, I wanted a change. So after some searching I came across th is with really good reviews and decided to go for it.
One of my oversights was in thinking that this watch was also radio controlled, it is NOT.
However, it does have quite a lot of other functions including world time, so that once you have set the accurate time (which I am a bit obsessed about) you will not generally have to change it again even when traveling, as most major world time zones are covered, so all you need to do is change the home city and the watch will adjust the time... Not quite radio controlled accuracy but nevertheless still quite cool.
I would have given five stars had it not been for the microscopic dials with which you use most of the other functionalities like alarm, stop watch and world time. You might seriously need to think of having a magnifying glass with you all the time unless you are only going to use these functions occasionally and stick with just using the watch for its primary purpose ie tell you the time.
Overall a great looking and trendy piece, but the small dials and the lack of multiband radio signal do let it down somewhat. If you are a tech nerd, I would advice doing for the more techy electronic/ g shock range.
