VERIFIED WATCHSHOP BUYER    (PURCHASED: SAT 22ND SEP 2012)

An excellent watch with minor cons - see below.

PROS:
black dial, contrasting delicate white hands with some small red elements and metal bracelet to complete the picture this watch is indeed quite good looking
properly manly watch - big enough to look serious and stylish but not too big to look vulgar or inappropriate
radio controlled synchronisation - so no ever need to set manually
an alarm
time zone setting not need to reset the time itself, just the time zone
daylight savings
water resistant up to 200 meters
5 years guarantee
solar power charged so no need to ever change the battery
up to 10 months operation from a fully charged internal cell
perpetual calendar with a day of month and day of week
24h dial additional small one
very accurate +/- 15 secs/month, but it matters only if you wouldnt synchronise it

CONS:
will only synchronise via radio in Europe and the US, not in Asia
pre-defined time-zones the US-centric - 5 US cities and only one European
chronograph useless for measuring short periods of time - minutes dial too small to read number of minutes accurately

SUMMARY:
Yes, it is a great watch - looks fantastic and has loads of features and also 5 years guarantee.
The question is: is it really worth its price or can you find something similar cheaper?

I am a meticulous researcher when it comes to buying myself a new product and my hunt for a fine watch was no exception. After several months of researching online reviews I settled upon a set criteria I wanted in my new watch.

Scratch resistant sapphire crystal
Stainless steel band and case
minimum 200m water resistant
200-500 price range
Day, date, chronograph
Silver bracelet style band

All searches pointed to this watch, and what a watch it is. It ticked all the boxes and more. The feature that really sold me on this watch was the extra layer of technology which was the eco drive movement. Basically the watch is powered by light, no need to replace batteries, bonus!

Not only that but this watch features an in built radio reciever which, depending on where you are in the world, updates itself every day at 2am in synchronisation with an ATOMIC CLOCK. Yes, you are literally wearing a watch that is telling you the most accurate time possible it will lose about 1 second every 20 million years!

When the watch arrived I opened the very nice presentation box and the watch looked superb. A real feel of quality craftmanship and a nice weighty feel of quality without being considered heavy on the wrist.

I chose stainless steel for the weight aspect over a titanium watch, also for the fact that stainless steel is less prone to scratches and even if it does get a few scratches they can be buffed out by a watch maintenance specialist.

The tachymeter on the bezel is just enough to make this watch look sporty yet elegant. BBQ or business meeting this watch will look great no matter what situation you are in.

Previous watches ive owned have ALL had the glass scratched when bumping the watch or grazing off walls, fences etc. Not anymore, with sapphire crystal glass this is the second hardest substance only to diamond! So I can rest assured I will have a scratch free glass for many many years. Its also non reflective and looks flawless.

Ive been playing with the watch now for a week and I cant take my eyes off it, really pleased with how it looks and almost everyone I worl with noticed it on the first wear and complimented the look. When I explained the eco drive/radio controlled atomic time keeping aspect they looked really interested and wanted to know more.

I have used the alarm and chronograph functions and the perpetual calendar means the date is always spot on no more adjusting at the end of every month or for leap years.

having very small wrists I was concerned the watch would be awkward to size. Luckily Citizen have came up trumps again with half links on the bracelet, meaning I managed to get it sized PERFECTLY.

The only thing I didnt like was the alarm is a little on the quiet side and only sounds for a short period of time. I dont think this will be much of a problem if you have a decent alarm on your smartphone. It may struggle to wake a heavy sleeper but its fine for other use I use it when studying to signal my tea break!

The timezones the watch caters for are also a bit specialised for America. I have no problems in Scotland using LON GMT time but this could be annoying for some. Luckily the ATM mode alternative time mode allows custom setting the watch to a time of your choosing but simply adding or taking away hours in relation to GMT, then you are set no matter where you are.

This watch has such a beautiful design and the quality is impeccable. This rivals and in some cases excells compared to watches 5 times the cost. In terms of sheer features and timekeeping accuracy, I find this a hard watch to beat. Citizen are a well respected name in the watch business and their 5 year warranty 6 years if you register the watch on their website is great piece of mind.

The best moment for me was waking up just before 2am and checking my watch sitting by my bedside. I watched the hands swing round into action and go into radio receiving mode, picking up a a radio signal and recalibrating the watch to its atomic accuracy, very cool!

Im not a big watch collector, if all goes well I will happily use this watch for the rest of my life, will update with another review in 6months - 1 year. Then again buying this watch and researching has sparked an interest into the beauty and precision that goes into a quality timepiece, so I may be back to add to my collection!

With advancing years I have sadly reached the stage where I cannot read the time on my current gilt hands on white face wrist watch and thus had need of finding a suitable replacement so felt that a Christmas present to myself was in order.

The short list of criteria was simply not only should my new watch be easy to read, especially at night and in poor light, equally important, it must be 100% accurate, have no need of battery replacement, be water resistant, have a day/date display and be in chrono style. Internet searches quickly led me to the Citizen range generally and the Perpetual Calendar AT Alarm Chronograph Eco-Drive AT4008-51E in particular. I accordingly placed an order for one spurred on and encouraged by the glowing five star reports which abound on the net.

On opening the package, my first impression was that the watch screamed quality comfortably weighty, not overly large for my average size wrist and with a dial I could easily read even without needing to reach for the glasses. The main dial is clear and not cluttered with superfluous writings, sub dials, slide rule or fuel calculator type facilities. There is a stop-watch facility which is useful but its not a substitute for the real thing as it does not give fractions of seconds.

I entirely endorse a comment I have read elsewhere that if you think that you will like this watch, you will the on-line pictures just do not do it justice, neither does the video clip give it the right impressions of looks, quality or of presence. It is a timepiece equally at home on a hike or in the Board Room - in a word, I think that it is stunning and by the way, so do others who commented on it over the Christmas period.

Classic design, perfect accuracy, should go on for ever. If you think you might like this watch, you will, the finish is perfect and it's comfortable. I bought it because I need a really accurate watch for work and my eyesight isn't what it was and I was finding my old chronograph hard to read; I can read the Citizen without glasses.

Bought this watch as an 18th birthday present for myself and have been nothing but pleased with it! After a slightly lengthy first set up and a few teething problems setting it up it has been nothing but a joy to wear.
As long as you follow the set up to a t then you should have no problems, just dont rush it and make sure you zero the hands otherwise the atomic signal can be out. However now it has been set up and Ive got my head around it its a breeze to use, the chronograph function works very well and overall the watch face is to read as its not clutter with things Ill never use. The luminescent hands light up very well, and although they will never match with the likes of a luminox or traser, reading the watch in low light or the pitch black is still very clear.
Friends and family have already commented on how smart the watch looks but its also a very practical watch that can be used day to day!
Its exactly as pictured above apart from the face seems a little darker. Not as bulky as its seems and although its heavier than my G-Shock not at all over weighted. I also found that if you go into a H Samuel and say youve purchased it from the theyll change the links free of charge.
Also although it makes no real difference to the watch youre going to buy it is very well presented within its box.

Treated myself with my first wages and wasnt dissapointed. Very good looking watch and sits comfertably on the wrist. I had to have the strap re-adjusted which was no hassle and even though ive only had the watch a matter of days ive already recieved positive comments from friends and family. It took me some time to work out the settings to the watch and to finish setting it up however thats more than likely due to it being my first watch rather than anything else. Overall im delighted with my purchase and highly recommend this watch.

This watch fits perfectly as you can remove slimmer links to fine-tune the fitting. Such a comfortable watch and nice and weighty. A lot of watches in this price range can look cheap on closer inspection but this watch really looks and feels more expensive. I love the features, being radio controlled means that the watch maintains the exact time and receives its radio signal at night. Its so precise that you can look at both your phone/computer clock and watch and see them change at the exact same moment. Precision to the very second, very impressive. This watch certainly grabs attention as the watch face is nice a big and catches the light. I highly recommend this watch and may be getting another one for my brother for Christmas!

I always wanted a nice watch and found the citizen eco drive just right for me as I cant wear a watch for work for safety reasons so only get to wear it odd evenings and weekends so the eco drive comes into its own
I also love the style and colour of the watch it fits perfectly after minor adjustment to strap links. The only thing I found annoying was the watch was flat and couldnt set it up when it arrived so had to leave it in the sun for a few hours to get it going to set it up which I found long winded but now its up and running as i want it i cant fault it and love it

Fantastic watch, great features, is suitable for both smart and casual environments. The Eco-Drive technology is a lovely addition, not having to worry about replacing battery etc. And being able to sync via radio to an atomic clock ensures that the watch will always be in time. The small red elements give the watch a nice aesthetic, making it stand out, and for the price I am very happy that I chose this watch, after looking at 100s of others. Would recommend 10/10.

I love buying watches but did not have a Chronograph style one. I started by looking at the luxury brands but decided I could have more watches for my money if I looked at a lower price bracket. Having been impressed with a Citizen Eco drive watch I already owned I decided to look at the Citizen range. Having decided on this watch I looked around for the best price which was the Watchshop. The added benefit of buying from them is that I was able to take the watch to a local Goldsmiths where I had the bracelet altered to fit. The watch arrived next day. Being an eco drive and having been stored in a box for some time it was dead on arrival. A couple of hours in the sun was enough to give it 220 days charge. You do need to read the instructions, although not complicated you cant work the watch properly just by fiddling with it. I set the date and time manually first and them went on to the radio setting to make it accurate. After thats theres nothing to do, it charges itself in the light and sets the date/ time automatically every night. All you need to do is admire it and show it off to your friends, and check the time as well which you will do frequently just to look at it.

It has all the attributes I wanted in a watch: radio-controlled powered by light sapphire glass perpetual calendar day and date. It looks very good on wrist and I can wear it and forget it it is totally undemanding in that I can wear it and forget it and yet know it has all the information available when I need it.

Well I am note in position to review yet as the product that I received was faulty as the battery was flat. I am in the progress of returning it. However the watch is beautiful and definitely exceed expectations. As to quality , well its Citizen Eco Drive which means flawless. I ware them for years and never had a problem with them and this time I believe it was just accidental that my watch was faulty!

Also the communication with watch shop been great.

What a fantastic watch. Im delighted with it. Only been wearing it now for a week or so and already had a number of complements from friends and colleagues. I was going to get a titanium Citizen but glad i went for a stainless steel one as it gives the watch a nice substantial feel. I made a mistake of getting too many links removed as later in the day it seemed too tight. But after adding a half link back in it is now very comfortable. If you are thinking about getting this watch go for it you wont be disappointed.

This is a really good looking classy watch, it gets plenty of attention. For my first ever watch with the budget I had, I couldnt have picked any better. With the large face its easy to see the time at a glance. I use the alarm feature in morning which isnt annoying as it lasts for only 15 seconds. The strap is really robust and chunky which makes it feel like a proper man s watch. All in all I cannot fault it.

This product is for a 50th birthday present, to be given next week. However, on receipt of this watch, the family are delighted with the appearance, what it can do etc etc. We all agree that it is just what the recipient wants and know he will be delighted with it as it is such a good product.

I bought a mens Citizen Chrono Perpetual calender AT Alarm Chronograph Radio controlled eco-drive watch AT4008-51E recently.
A brilliant watch which came with the daylight saving time turned off, but once turned on gave the correct time. So much information built into such a neat and attractive watch. I never have to bother with winding or whether the time is accurate. It is to the second. Super buy!!

Bought this watch as a Birthday present for my Father. I wanted to get him a Chronograph watch that looked very nice but wasnt too expensive. As said in a previous review that someone had written, he wouldnt need to know what altitude he was flying at or how much air was left in his tanks, scuba diving.No superfluous dials or indicators wanted. just a clear, nice looking dial. This watch fits the bill perfectly, and looks good and is well made. I say its well made, as I am the owner of three Tag Heuer watches, which retail, are 3-6 times the cost of this citizen watch. It is well worth the money.

Its my first Citizen. I like haw it looks and feels on the wrist. I dont like that second hand of the watch doesnt match exactly marks. I did expect more precise finish. When I will be making my next choice of the watch I will definitely browse citizen products.

Very pleased with this quality item. Quite a large watch and a little heavier than expected so tends to fall down onto hand. Would recommend a tight strap fit with little or no slack.

Whilst owning this watch for only a short time I am amazed at the quality of it. Due to aging eye sight my previous Tag Heuer had become hard to read but even in low light I can still make out the time, and knowing the radio signal means it is always right is a bonus. Improvements yes of course there are things I would have liked to see, showing time for four American cities one London and one Alt Time which I have set to Belgium time I would like to have seen One American London Paris plus two Alt time settings for those traveling further afield

I have had this watch just over a week now and I am thoroughly impressed with it. Not only does it look fantastic, but it feels very comfortable on my wrist. Normally I wear a slightly smaller and lighter watch but I honestly wouldnt be able to tell it was there. I had concerns about it being complicated but it was actually so easy to set up. The instruction card that came with the watch was clear, concise and very easy to follow. Once I set it to receive the radio signal it did the rest by itself. Very impressive! The build quality is a lot better than i was expecting. It feels solid and hard wearing. I have other watches which i paid similar money for, but the AT4008 looks and feels like a much more expensive watch when compared side by side. The features sold the watch to me. Solar powered, perpetual calendar, WR200. etc. This is a watch i will wear for years to come and not even have to give a moments thought to. Looks amazing, works even better. I would not hesitate to buy this watch again if i was unlucky enough to lose it.

Thoroughly impressed with the style and look of the watch on my wrist. Despite it being slightly heavier than some of its aluminium Citizen counterparts, the weight becomes unnoticeable rather quickly. The face colours are nicely contrasting with the dials making it easy to read. I have only had the watch a short while and am yet to try out some of the functions such as setting an alarm, however it was relatively easy to change to different time zones and use the chronometer. Would recommend.

UNVERIFIED REVIEW (The reviewer has not yet been verified themselves as a Watch Shop customer)

Cannot believe the positive reviews of this watch as I returned mine after 10 days. I have 2 citizen radio controlled perp calendar watches already which I love but fancied this for the day of week feature.
It has poor radio signal pick up. 4 for USA and one from Germany for London time. It does not reach Scotland, Iceland, Norway, Greece and beyond etc. I never got a radio signal travelling around. so it is not accurate and mine was always 3 minutes behind time. Cannot understand this models poor radio control signal sources. Yes it looks nice and I did want it to work but I want accuracy and never having to adjust watch pointers. Why buy at this price when it does not deliver..
