I bought this watch as I was looking for a watch for everyday use, including DIY etc, but still wanted a watch that could be worn in the evenings and occasions. After reading reviews on this watch, which were very helpful, swayed me towards it.
I collected my watch from Goldsmiths, as was very busy. The service was fantastic, prompt delivery, including bracelet adjustment.

PROS :-
Lightweight Titanium.
Large enough to know you are wearing a Chronograph, but not a lump on your wrist.
Easily read dial with large hour and minute hands, with substantial hour markers.
EASILY visible hands in the dark. I was worried about this as my eyesight is not good at night without my Glasses.
Very smart two tone Ion Plating.

CONS :- but very minor !

Deep date window, can be difficult to read in bad or very bright light.
Quite large Links, with only two adjustment holes in the Bracelet Clasp.

Apart from that a smart, classy and great all round watch.

Well worth the price !

I could not add all the photos taken, as there was no facility to do so ! Hope the one that appears helps !?

After much searching for a smart watch which would never need a new battery for a couple of months I plumped for this black Citizen Eco Drive CA0265-59E. I am glad I did because this is an excellent, sleek and yet not overstated watch. One of the key criteria in my search was a watch that powers itself as I get frustrated at having to go to pay for new watch batteries and this Citizen does exactly that. Eco Drive means the watch is solar powered so should never need a new battery. I think the official packaging claims it will last at 10 years so it may not last indefinitely but certainly for much longer than a traditional battery!

Looks and Feel

The watch arrived in a very smart box with information about the 5 year Citizen guarantee and the packaging looks like the photograph on the watch page on the Watchshop. This means it makes a perfect gift too. The watch is actually very attractive and striking without looking too flash. It is very easy to read due to the clear luminous hands and markers. I would say that the contrast between the black and the hands is attractive and overall it looks very smart and sleek without looking ostentatious. I think the watch actually looks better in real life than in the photographs too. The bracelet also does not look tacky and feels comfortable.

The titanium makes this watch feel very lightweight yet sturdy and of a high quality. The sapphire glass is also very scratch resistance and clear. The fold over push button clasp works well too although took a little getting used to as I am used to a simple buckle! It does not feel too bulky or chunky on your wrist which was another minor worry I had before purchasing. Another positive was the watch shop adjusted the watch for me for free and it fits very well so that is a major plus – you just have to tell them your wrist size and they also gave me the links too. One slight weakness is that the coating is meant to be slightly prone to minor scratches as it is quite thin.

PROS

Nearly everything about this watch is very good.
+ Very smart and sleek without looking too flashy
+ Eco Drive means you should never need a new battery as the watch is solar powered
+ Easy to read, clear dial and luminous hands
+ Useful features like the chronograph and water resistant to 100 metres
+ Smart packaging
+ Good make and 5 year warranty
+ Lightweight
+ Good service from the watch shop – fast delivery and adjusted to my size
+ Would make an excellent gift

CONS

I am struggling to find any which is why this watch is rated 5 stars! Still…

- Some say that the coating is a little thin
- Not really for diving as water resistant to 100 metres only
That is all I can really criticise and that is nit-picking.

I was really pleased to find the right watch for me after much research and looking at hundreds of watches! Overall, this is a very tasteful, smart, lightweight, easy to read and attractive watch which does not need a new battery the best feature in my opinion and I would highly recommend it, particularly as a gift.

Recommended!

Love the stylish look of the black titanium case & bracelet. The case isnt too large & fits my smallish wrist. Date is a little difficult to read & would have preferred a bigger moving second hand instead of the smaller dual at 6 oclock. Very light & comfortable to wear.

This is a very sleek looking watch in matt black, highlighted here and there with gloss black. The simple chronograph gives the watch a sophisticated feel, while the ion plated front and back titanium strap and sapphire lens make the watch very robust. Combine this with the WR100 rating and Citizens fantastic eco-drive mean you never have to take it off. The luminous hands and markers are very strong making it easy to see the time in low light, and it stays visible for a good length of time. The watch is nicely contoured and of medium size, and would suit most size wrists. I have no negative points but someone with the disposable income may like to see GPS tech etc on a model such as this, or maybe biometric applications. For me though, this watch ticks all the boxes: perfect.

I couldnt be happier with my watch. Originally bought the watch as a present for myself, as I didnt want anything that would break the bank but still had a smart and stylish appearance. The build quality on the watch is fantastic and the black colouring looks great. The watch is lightweight being made of titanium helps and it doesnt feel bulky at all on my wrist.
Fantastic watch, would recommend to anyone, also comes in a nice presentation box too.

I like this watch, the two tone black n silver make the numerals quite striking and clear. Its not to over stated and is a watch i will wear most days, especially for work. The bracelet is light weight but strong. I really like the styling of tge bracelet and is one of the best features. The grade of the watch is of a high quality.

Easily read dial, day or night , subtle styling the all black finish and mid-size dial are not too bling The safety catch on the bracelet with its press button release is much better than the equivalent release on my Rolex, which involves well kept finger nails.
The day-date window is too small and virtually unreadable in a quick glance .All round I am ver happy with the watch, my only regret is that I didnt buy a fully waterproof version

I think Citizen eco watches are the best value for money on the market. Im not sure, but I think only Rotary give a lifetime Guarantee. Ive only had this watch about 3 weeks, so I cant comment on reliability, but so far it has kept perfect time. I bought a titanium watch because of the weight, I would imagine a stainless one would be a lot heavier. This one feels nice on my arm. I like the fact that it is black with a black strap. It looks pretty cool. The face of the watch is black, but the hands etc. are white, which makes it clear and easy to read. They are also luminous, so they can be seen in the dark. The sapphire glass is very clear. At the moment there is nothing I dislike about this watch

The watch has a look and feel of quality. The date dial is deeply recessed and small which makes it difficult to read. I like the idea that no batteries will ever be needed.

Lovely bit of kit. The only downside is that the date can be hard to see in less than full daylight but that might be my eyesight
The delivery service and efficiency was amazing. Ordered on Friday & picked up the watch on Saturday

I love this watch! It is perfect in every detail. The only flaw is the tight pins which connect the metal bracelet links together. I tried to adjust the size myself but it was impossible to get the pins out, and I have the right tools to do that. So I brought the watch to a Goldsmith retailer to have it adjusted for free but they couldnt manage to get the pins out either. The only option left was to send the watch to Citizen and let them take care of the matter. They will then send the watch back in about three weeks. Probably its just a case and I was unlucky to get the odd one. Anyway, I really like this watch and I couldnt wait to start wearing it, but I have to wait three weeks or maybe even more for that! :-
