This review is from: Citizen Men's Eco-Drive Calibre 8700 Perpetual Calendar Watch #BL8000-54L (Watch)
This is a very smart, good looking watch which on appearances far outdoes other watches in its price range.
I won't babble, but I do want to address some of the scruples people have made:
Firstly, on my watch at least, it is very easy to pull out the crown to the first position without slipping to the second position. Also, whilst this does stop the second hand, the second wheel (cog) keeps in motion so that when you are finished the second hand returns to the place where it should be, therefore not hacking time as one reviewer has stated.
Secondly the instructions are relatively simple so that having read them once you will be more than able to do most of the things you want to without having to refer back to the manual.
I will agree that the watch does take some time to display the set alarm time, and that the alarm is rather faint so cannot be relied upon to wake you from heavy sleep. Also there is no 'sleep' function so the alarm is a once only affair.
All things considered, this is an excellent watch for the price for anyone who does not require the alarm to be a major function.
