The watch took a long time to charge and after following the instructions on charging it was still not working correctly 8 days after I started to use it. I phoned the Citizen advice line and they gave me further instructions (which were not in the manual)and since then it has worked very well.
The watch is accurate, clear to read (even with 4 hands)and not to big a diameter (a common problem with watches today). Although my family live overseas, I did not buy it for the 2nd time zone (although that is useful), I bought it because I liked the look of the watch,I wanted a canvas strap and this one is very good,and for the price of £91 with a 5 year guarantee and no batteries to change or springs to wind, I thought it good value for money. So far I have not been dissapointed!
If I knew 10 weeks ago what I know now, would I still buy the watch for £91? My answer would be yes.
The big 24 hour hand is a rare find, other watches I've looked that had a 24 hour hand were small and hard to read.
I don't like the nylon band but that is easy replaced with a better band.
Accuracy is excellent. Mine gains just 2 or 3 seconds a month.
The second hand lines up with the markers all around the dial.
The orange GMT hand can be just used as a 24 hour indicator.
The hour hand can be set independently of the GMT hand, if you so desire, without stopping the watch... This is great for crossing time-zones when travelling, as your watch will then show local-time on the main hands and your home-time on the GMT hand.
If you are out in the wilderness the GMT hand can also be used as a basic compass. Point the hour hand to the sun, and the GMT hand points North.
The lugs on this watch are a standard 20mm, so replacing the stock strap with a leather, Nato, or steel bracelet, is quick and simple.
It has the other usual Citizen features.
Eco-Drive (solar powered)... so no more batteries.
Flat, scratch resistant, anti-reflective crystal.
Water resistance to 100m
Out of the box, the watch had at least some charge in it so there was no concern about leaving it under a light to charge up. I've worn it almost all the time since getting it and I guess it's been charging all the time it's exposed to sunlight/artificial light. The instructions - although there are very few actual functions! - were not terribly clear, but it's simple enough to work out: crown out to the first stop, turn clockwise to move the hour hand and anti-clockwise for the date. Crown out all the way to change the 24hr pointer. It took a few goes to make sure the date was not changing at midday, but all's well now!
The look of the watch is very eye-catching. A simple dial with that added interest of the inner 24hr dial. The date window is small, but readable and in keeping with the overall design of the watch the hands are quite spartan suiting the overall simple, no nonsense layout.
On the downside: on the watch I received the second hand is very slightly offset from the markings from the thirty second to sixty second side. Not enough to bother me really - I wouldn't be using the watch for anything more precision timed than a boiled egg anyway. Also the luminous markings (the four hands only) give out a good light when recently charged - nice and bright when I turn out the light to go to sleep - but dim to almost non-existent in a couple of hours, so reading it in the middle of the night is not possible. Again, not a huge issue but be advised: if you like a nice luminous dial that irradiates you all night long, this is not the watch for you...
The downsides are outweighed for me by the functionality of the GMT dial and - once you get used to it - the ease of setting up the watch as you cross time zones. The case has a reassuring solidity to it and the knurled crown adds a nicely utilitarian touch, there for a purpose and not to look pretty. The size of the watch is just fine for me and stops short of being one of these oversized clocks being carted around on some wrists. I can see myself replacing the strap at some point: on one stop it is a fraction too tight and on the next one down a touch too loose. I'm also not sure how well the canvas would hold up, but I will need to find a good quality leather strap to do justice to the build and design of the watch.
Very happy adding this one into my collection!
This watch fitted the bill admirably on all counts. It can by no means be described as a dress watch, but it is functional and fit for purpose.
The timekeeping is good, but the luminosity of the dial is not all that great - but if you want to check the time during the hours of darkness - it would be wise to get a torch!
The only fly in the ointment is the small window for the date function - this apart I'm pleased with the watch.
