Good watch, band falls part in 6 months

I purchased this watch in June of 2014. It is February 2015 that I am writing the review. In 8 months the watch itself has been flawless but the band is falling apart. I like the fact that the watch is maintenance free. I just expected longer life out of the band.

As good as it gets for the money

I bought this watch 6 years ago (and again later as a gift). Now after these many years, I can say with some confidence that if you’re looking for what I was looking for, this is as good as it gets for the money.

It’s about the details

Overall, this is a great watch, and a steal for less than $200.

Nice watch, especially for the money, but crown needs to be knurled

I had a Citizen Eco-Drive watch for years, but it finally died so I decided to try another one. I didn’t want a large, fat watch, like so many men’s watches seem to be. This is a nice size dial, not too large and not too small. I like having the day and date on it and it has a look that works for formal or casual use.

Nice watch overall– with one caveat

It’s an attractive watch and seems to keep very accurate time, although I haven’t compared it regularly to the atomic clock at I rated it 4 stars for one reason primarily– despite what some other reviews have stated, I believe the front scratches too easily. I’ve only had it a few months and have been careful with it. I don’t put it in my pockets with anything else, for instance, and I store it carefully in the same place each night when I take it off to go to bed. To the best of my recollection, I have never accidentally scraped it against anything while wearing it. Nonetheless, I have one major scratch on it already and a couple of smaller ones. In a probably futile attempt to fend off the inevitable “well you should have been more careful” comments on this review, I’ll state that I’ve had many other watches and I have never had this problem before. If I could rate it 4.5 stars I probably would, but I really feel they could have used a somewhat tougher material for the front. Having said that, I still wear it for all but the most formal of occasions, because the scratches wouldn’t be readily apparent to anyone else, and the watch still looks good. So overall, 4 stars.

Great value; inexpensive, versatile, and looks great.

Excellent value for a versatile watch. I was looking for something that would dress up or down, moving from workplace to dinner, without looking pretentious. This fit the bill perfectly. It goes as well with a pair of jeans and a dress shirt as it does with a suit.

A lightweight, accurate, and durable watch

Very light and attractive watch. I’ve had it a year now with no issues to report as it doesn’t miss a minute and it always spot on with my clock that synchs with the atomic clock daily. I’ve banged the crystal a few times fully expecting to see a damage or a big crack, but it too the beating without even a scratch. My only minor complaint is that it is difficult to adjust the date when a month doesn’t have 31 days. The stem is short and hard to grasp with my old, fat fingers. That isn’t hard to deal with though and isn’t a problem worthy of any downgraded review. The wasn’t sure the leather band would hold up, but so far it’s doing fine. If I worked outside sweating all day it probably would be suffering a lot more, but then again if that were the case I’d be wearing a Casio with a metal band. I like this watch a lot.

Nice, smaller watch.

Overall it’s a very nice watch. It looks classy, not flashy, and considering it’s solar powered, it’s very thin and light. The face is what I consider to be a more normal size than a lot of the hubcaps that pass for watches today. I’ve worn this watch off-and-on, and truth be told, it’s been in the box more than on my wrist but the charge seems to hold between wearings.

I think this is the best dress watch under $100

This is my second Eco-drive Citizen watch. I think this is the best dress watch under $100.
