It is big (but I have large hands, so it looks OK . . . I think!).
I like to think that it looks like the sort of watch a Spitfire pilot would have worn (although obviously not solar powered)
It doesn't tick and keep me awake at night.
My only possible criticism of it is that the date window is very small and sunk into the face, so most of the time I can't read it.
Having said that, every time I look at my wrist, I smile, so on the whole; I love this watch!

The bad (for me) is that in my enthusiasm I hadn't noted the size of this watch until I opened the box. At 43mm's it is a big watch that requires a large wrist to carry. I have slender wrists and I thought this watch was too large but that seems to be the style these days in sports watches. For the past decade the watch industry has been producing increasingly gargantuan designs on steroids they refer to as 'wrist presence.' High-end watchmakers led the way with designs that dwarf the wrist, but the trend has found its way down the food chain. Seems that sport watches these days typically feature 44-64mm cases to capture that upscale Frisbee vibe. If you were looking for a big sports watch as a status symbol you'd probably be better served by an over-sized Panerai, or a Glashütte that will cost more than your first house. This Citizen would just never have the street cred as a status symbol; so its just a big contemporary watch.
Some fashionistas seem to relish strapping a manhole cover onto their wrists, but that wasn't for me and I sold this watch despite the fact that I really loved the look and feel of it. Lots of men are comfortable wearing the larger size watches and Citizen sells a lot more models with 43+mm cases that are best sellers so who am I to say what's good for you? If you're comfortable with the size, this is a wonderfully attractive and functional watch that you will be happy to wear.
I guess I could have paid closer attention to the dimensions for this watch. It is big! It's not thick, but just bigger than average. In my opinion it's nearly cartoon large. Those of us with small wrists cannot understand the recent competition between watchmakers to make wristwatches as big as possible. You think they would be more compact. Anyway, the size does make the watch easy to read -- especially with the big numbers on the face. So, why in the world is the date so small????? You can read the time from across the room, but you'll need a magnifying glass to read the date. And, no. There is no Rolex-style magnifier in the crystal for the date window. Citizen, I think you need to give whomever designed this one an opportunity to go to work at Seiko.
I'm keeping the watch since style-wise it was about the only choice in a leather band right now without spending big bucks on one of the overpriced Tags, Omegas, etc. My other Eco Drive is a really good watch, but too dressy for casual wear. But, I'm interested to see how fast the large circumference crystal picks up scratches. In the mean time I'll just use my cell phone to remind me of the date.
