love the large Black Dial and case.The bold orange numbers and markings. The really solid leather strap. The strap would need to be a little longer for an dateyone with more than average wrist diameter. It was nice to find that the numerals and hands showed up in the dark and lasted for a long time. This feature was not mentioned in the operating manual and there were no instructions for using the crown knob to correctly set the day and date. To sum up, I think it is a beautiful watch and at reasonable price, although I did later find it for sale at £110.00 on a competitors site.It gives you accurate time without all the bells and whistles, If you see it you will buy it.

I was looking for an easy to read, robust, simple, watch. This watch ticks all of those requirements. I like the simple face, the clear numerals and the solar recharging. Thereís minimal fuss with the watch as you only have to update the date every second month or so and itís accurate enough that time adjustments are not frequent. It has a solid feel to it and sits comfortably on the wrist. I also like the non-standard orange/brown colour to the marks and numerals on the face and hands.
What I donít like is that the strap is a synthetic product faced with leather. It was fairly inflexible at new and has taken a couple of weeks to soften up. Iíll be replacing it with something a little better as soon as it fails. The crown doesnít screw in and while itís still 100m water resistant or so claimed by Citizen I would have liked the comfort of knowing itís a sealed unit. Lastly, while it is luminous, itís very faint in the dark and I do struggle to read it at night.

Great looking watch that has received a few compliments already and Ive only had it a week. I particularly like the orange accents on the numbers and hands. But remember to leave it in the light when not on your wrist to prevent it from running out of juice!

This watch unlike the modern trend has an uncluttered dial.The numerals are bold and clear which would suit people with reduced eyesight.It has day/date which is sometimes useful.My need is for a hassle free timepiece without any distractions.I also prefer a leather strap,rather than the metal bracelet,that i find uncomfortable.It was cheaper than a local supplier.The ecodrive function keeps it fully charged just using light for 6 months in the dark,but it tops itself up with further exposure to light.Time and day/date are easily changed with the bezel.No need for going through programming modes like many more elaborate multi-dialled watches require.This is primarily a reliable time piece.Its also not that expensive.

I liked the idea of adding to my range of watch technologies: mechanical hand-wound, automatic, kinetic, quartz, LED/LCD.
I lacked a solar powered example - and this handsome, bold-faced model fitted the bill nicely.
I like the simple but very clear face and numerals.
The tan/orange paint on black works well, and the matt black finish on the case is very smart, and so far, has not scuffed.
My only niggle is with the strap - its a little stiff, and looks & feels like pleather. But thats a minor gripe.
The back of the watch has a polished metal finish.
Overall, Im very happy with, and I thought it good value.

I bought this watch as a christmas present for my dad and couldnt be happier with my choice. He likes bold, modern watches with something a bit different about them and this one fits the bill perfectly with it being solar powered which he asked for. The watch seems really well made, the matt black finish on the case and the buckle looks stylish, the numbers and markers are clear and easy to read, although the date / day is a little small, but this seems to be the same on most watches.

I decided to set the watch to the right time and date so when he opens it he can just put it straight on. The date was a little tricky until you figure out that turning one way changes the weekday and the other changes the date.

The only thing I think it lacks is a backlight. It has glow in the dark hands and numbers but not sure how effective / easy to read these will be.

Overall a great watch for the price, my dad will be buzzing on xmas day Im sure!

This watch is exactly what I wanted: clean design with a bit of difference from the more traditional colouring and styling. I dont have big wrists, so I cant wear huge watches but I wanted one with a big face and this is just right. The strap will need some wearing in as its still a bit stiff after a couple of days. I would have preferred it to have been a couple of milimetres thinner, but thats just a personal preference.

Mens Citizen Eco-Drive Watch BM8475-
It was like sending a birthday present to myself. The watch arrived the very next day and was packaged beautifully in a black presentation box. It has an unusual design with a black and brown face, which doesnít sound very special when put like that but is in fact unique and eye-catching. I particularly like the fact that it is easily readable by an old manís eyes well Ė middle-aged manís eyes and I can even read the day and date clearly which is not usually possible. Setting the day and date can be tricky on some watches such as my Accurist but it was simplicity itself on the Citizen.
Several people have already commented on it which is unusual for such a reasonably priced piece of kit. The watch comes with a smart and comfortable tan leather strap which fits me much better than the stainless steel kind. I havent got any better picture of the watch than you will find on any retailers website.
I could go on about the design all day but suffice it say that it doesnít have any clutter Ė no chronometer dials Ė and the face is clear and easy to read. I havenít tried it at night yet but I have no doubt that it will deliver on its promise to shine in the dark. Quite simply I love it.

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

Great watch, large face and numbers for easy reading and the black and orange colours make it an eye catching accessory.
The leather strap has a plastic lining along the edge, which has a small crack where it bends, but the leather is a decent quality and it feels good on the wrist.
The numbers glow in the dark, in the typical neon green, but I find they glow quite faintly unless charged purposefully with a torch.
The crown is large and easy to manipulate and feels of good quality. Having to not worry about batteries or winding is also very useful, just wear it in the light and forget about it.

Very pleased with the purchase- its somewhat different from my other run of the mill chunky glitzy watches!
For me its also a surprise bonus that the days are also in Spanish as I live there most of the year and speak the language fluently.
Also surprised that the hands and numbers, although orange coloured, are luminous.
What other surprises are in store for me? Will it suddenly burst into song and wish us all a Merry Xmas? Just have to wait and see!
