Very elegant watch . As usual high quality from Citizen. Comes with a dvd to help set up the watch which I foundbvery useful. Struggled a bit initially but then realised the watch had to be charged fully first before it can be set up. It was a bit frustrating to wait for it to be charged but that is because I cud not wait to wear it on. Comfortable leather strap. Would have preferred the buckle rather than clasp style, but it is not uncomfortable.

I decided that I wanted to get a new watch recently, and did a lot of looking around. In the end, I was drawn to the citizen eco-drive range, and this watch in particular. I like its ease of use, and the semi-retro styling means it looks good worn with pretty much anything. A quick precis:

The Good points
Easy to set up
The strap is very secure with a great hidden clasp whislt still looking like a traditional leather strap
clear and legible time telling at a glance. The hands are clear without dominating the face
Local Time mode works a treat. I recently popped over to France overnight, and the local time mode made it simple to switch to CET and switch back again afterwards. It was particularly good that the alarm sounds at the time set even when in LTM mode

The okay I cant really see anything as a poor/bad point of the watch!:
Adjusting the strap is fiddly and not particularly obvious. It took me a minute of fiddling to work out how to tighten/loosen the strap.
The luminosity of the hands is a little dim. Its still visible at night, but could be a bit brighter
The alarm is a bit quiet. If youre a heavy sleeper, it may not wake you up not a problem for me.

Watchshop:
The ordering was clear, easy and quick. At each stage I got an email telling me what was going on, and the watch was delivered very quickly to my office, without any fuss. All in all a good job, and I can certainly recommend them!

I bought this watch for my partners 50th birthday. It was a complete surprise for him. I chose this with a leather strap as he as got a slim wrist and it is easily adjustable, it has a lovely gold trim round the dial and looks relly dressy and expensive. It also had 20% knocked off and was a good buy for £199. My partner loves it as he has wanted 1 of these watches for a long time.It was money well spent to see the smile on his face when he opened it up last friday the 7th March.

The watch is comfortable to wear and will definitely make one stand out at the same time not to look too formal. Goes well with smart casual and formal wear therefore to wear to work. Because of eco drive tech I dont have worry about changing the battery or winding it. The dial and it design will give an elagant and sophisticated look.

Very pleased with the watch. Build quality is as expected for a Citizen watch. I have a small wrist and this does not look too big and bulky on my wrist. The strap takes a bit of working out how to fit. Just remember that under the gold strap band there is a lock plate that is flipped open to adjust the pin setting for the correct hole in the leather strap. To release the wrist strap press the 2 metal buttons together which are located just behind the gold strap band. The watch face is clear to read and the dials are laid out well. The minute and hour hand glow in the dark. The alarm is quiet but it is loud enough for me. The only thing that could be improved in my view would be to make the minute and hour hand more slender. Other than that I am more than happy.

excellent watch, gave it to my dad for his birthday and he absolutely loved it. Good quality + good look.
Indicators could be made darker so they are more visible and its easier to read the time for people with not such a good eye sight.

Delivered on time and according to my expectations.
Based on description given in the internet catalog, I was not disappointed by the two watches.
The fact the delivery can be followed from the oredr till the home delivery is perfect even if to be shipped outside of UK.

The watch is quite simply excellent. The face colour is really nice, face size just right, a lovely dress watch for my husband. The clasp was a bit hard to work out but once you get it, its simple to use.
Been searching for the perfect watch for 2 years, as husband is fussy. He loves it.

Beautiful watch. Classic styling which suited my father very well for his 60th birthday. The watch is feature-packed! The only negative is the presentation case and box look a little cheap compared the the classy watch. The numbers on the dial are a little small, so those with poor eye sight may need to squint a little. The clasp allows the watch to be taken off and put on easily without having to undo the buckle everytime, should help preserve the leather.

It is a very stylish, elegant watch with an easy to read face and a clear instruction booklet.The gold bezel is perfectly matched with the chestnut strap and white face. I particularly like the ecodrive feature which ensures I do not have to worry about battery failure. It also includes a Local Time feature which means I can quickly switch to Central European Time when I visit my daughter.

A very easy to use, elegant looking watch. It may lack features such as a compass or an altimeter, but who really uses these anyway. It gives you everything you want, including an alarm, and a second time setting for if you go abroad, and looks stylish with the brown leather strap and gold face. Also with the eco-drive (solar power) you'll likely never need to change the batteries. A great looking watch that offered everything I required.
