Bought as a gift for myself. Superb clear dial and easy setup.
Faultless operation and would highly recommend. Perfect for those with less than perfect sight as the bright dial and clear numbers make reading easy. Only minor problem is the leather strap would be too short for those with chubby wrists as shown in photo.

I bought this watch as a gift to my dad-in-law. Its an excellent watch. Citizen Eco-Drive Range means no hassle of battery replacement, something people of that age would appreciate. Roman Letter dial in a white background is simply superb. Comes with a nice authentic leather strap. Well packaged and a nice service by watch shop too. Also, sensibly priced with value for money. As a suggestion, I would love to see a metal strap, which is my preferred choice. No other suggestions. Yes, would recommend to anyone

Personally I got fed up with changing batteries in my watch and decided once and for all to get an Eco-Drive watch.
I am absolutely delighted with the choice I made and would highly recommend this watch.
If this is your first time to buy an Eco-Drive watch, then the price and look is perfect.

This Eco-drive watch is a well-designed, simple and classy item which is guaranteed to please. The clear display with roman numerals around a circular face is simultaneously easy to read and traditional. The black strap is comfortable and offers flexibility whilst being worn. The controls are easy to use with 2 settings to alter the time and date. An added extra is the inbuilt mechanism to reduce battery usage - an excellent feature to help the Eco-drive live up to its name.

Whilst the simplistic design may not offer sufficient gadgets to suit all tastes, it offers a classic design and comfortable feel which I cannot fault.

A great looking watch very stylish and just the right size for my wrist. It is not one of those oversize watches that seem to be so popular these days.

It has a clear easy to read face and of course being Eco drive requires no battery replacement.

I would agree with other reviewers who have mentioned that it could be slightly fiddly to adjust for some people although I found it ok and the strap itself could be made of a more supple leather.

Other than that an excellent watch at an excellent price. Very pleased with this purchase.

This clearly readable smart, slim, Mens dress watch is unmatched. Clean white face with black hands and cool neat Roman numerals plus a Day/Date function make this the perfect timepiece. Eco-Drive technology means never having to change a battery. You are ensured perfect timekeeping for just a small outlay. Could it be bettered? I think not.

I have now had my watch for a couple of weeks and I am very happy with it. I love the way it looks. There is an uncluttered classical look to it that is appealing. The day of the week and the date are clear and easy to set while the Roman numerals are a bold statement that are in keeping with the classical appearance. It keeps good time and the fact that it will never run down or need a battery changed is just boss!

It was just by chance that I chose my new eco-drive Citizen Watch I had not heard of eco-drive. I have always bought Casio watches before,but looking through their range for a watch powered by light that I liked, I didnt find one. So I looked through Citizens range, I saw a watch that I liked the look of. It had all the things I admire in watches. A nice leather strap, a circular dial, a watch should have a circular dial.and what struck me most I think were the Hands,such beautiful delicate Hands, and the second Hand completed the trio, I have never seen one so fine. The numerals also perfect, delicate. And when the watch arrived, I was not disappointed. And it works perfectly, I am Very pleased with it.

Excellent Choice of Brands, Decent price. Citizen Eco-Drive runs on just plain light and so no hassle of battery replacement. Thats works very well for senior citizens to whom this was gifted , one less thing they need to worry in their age, so that way its indeed inclusive.. And to comment on watch stop, the service has been excellent and the proactive way of seeking feedback, that speaks about their intention for continuous service improvement.
Definitely worth recommending!

This was a it had to be a silver metal coloured round design with a white face and b it had to have Roman numerals and c it had to have a black leather strap. The only watch that fit his instruction was this classic citizen watch. As its a xmas present he hasnt yet received it.

Pros

Strap is of good quality. Love the minimalistic design of the dial.

Cons

Crown is very smooth so very difficult to change the date and time.

While changing the date, the date was stuck on Monday and didnt move no matter how much I turned the dial. I had to manually change the time until it went past 12pm on to the next day, then the date changed. After this the date was changeable. It seems like the date wheel got stuck somehow.

I bought this watch as a gift for my father for his 60th birthday present I wanted a classic style which wouldnt go out of fashion, and a watch with a luxury quality. This watch has both.

In terms of design, the dial is simple but stunning. The Roman numerals are an eccentric touch, but a classy one. The date function is proportionate and not overbearing like it can be on some styles. The leather strap is a decent thickness, and we both liked that its not plain.

Performance-wise, I bought a Citizen because I knew they were a reliable brand. We were also impressed by the Eco-drive functionality - not having to worry about batteries is a great draw and also provides a neat talking point hes the kinda guy who likes to discuss watches at dinner parties.

A great buy, and nice packaging if youre planning to give as a gift too.

This is my 3rd Citizen Eco-Drive watch and I love them all. This one has a very pleasing design with a simple, clear face showing Roman numerals on a white background. The watch itself is slim and elegant, the leather strap was stiff at first but soon loosens up giving a very comfortable fit. Timekeeping is excellent.

Aesthetically, the face might have been even more pleasing if it came without the day and date slot, but this is a very useful function that I would be reluctant to lose. The overall quality of the watch is excellent, particularly given the price of it.

Based on having owned it for 2 weeks, so no long term experience. Very clean, clear, simple face, with day/date easier to read than many. The down side for me is not the watch itself, but the strap: It is quite stiff, and even when put on using the tightest comfortable hole, the face often slips round the the side of my wrist. I may end up having to buy a new, more supple strap

This fine Citizen Eco-Drive watch would be an ideal gift for anyone. Neat, clean, clear and readable with Day/Date functions and simple to set. I cannot recommend this item too highly.

It would be a fine dress watch for evening wear. A perfect watch for anyone with poor eyesight or an introduction to watch wearing for a young lad.

To get a watch as well made as this from a reputable maker at this low cost is superb.

This is a 50th birthday present for my husband. He already has an eco citizen watch for diving and I have bought this for him to wear as a dress watch. I know he will love it.

Excellent Citizen Ecodrive, white face, easy to read black hands and Roman numerals, nice black leather strap. No winding or batteries.
Smooth button makes it awkward to change time and date.

Mens Citizen Eco-Drive - This watch looks good for the price although cannot comment on its performance as it is a Christmas present for my husband.
Watch looks stylish and expensive and as my husband has a small wrist the dial is not too big or thick. The strap is leather and all in all I think it is good value for money.

Lovely item, simple and elegant. The leather strap is slightly tough to start but Im hoping will wear in nicely, as they do. I took advantage of the strap adjustment and they provided an extra hole to make it tighter than I currently need, just in case - good thinking guys. The buckle too feels nice and solid. Only gripe is that the crown has a smooth surface which provides little feedback when setting the time, date and day. Very pleased with my purchase.

This is a beautiful watch. It looks classy, the white face and the shiny leather strap make it look like a much more expensive watch.
The Eco Drive means no winding up or buying new batteries.

Bought this for my hubby as he needed a watch, despite the fact we have a number of cheap watches laying around the were broken or needed batteries. He bought me a Citizen Ecodrive 16 yr ago, which is still amazingly going strong, so thought this would be great for him. He love the classic styling, leather strap and the best bit, it doesnt need winding or batteries!
