Watch face is not as outstading as an automatic version of the same model,the day date window is much smaller in the Ecodrive version. The colour is satisfactory as is the bracelet and style. All in all a fine watch.

Lovely watch, bought for my husband as a gift. The watch is really well built and easy to use. I like the fact that its not chunky which adds to the quality feel of the watch. Highly recommended.

Purchased it for my uncle in law! It was the perfect size, looked exactly like it did in the picture. Its not too heavy, not too light, just right!
The watch is simple to use, so its perfect for someone of his age range.
he was very happy with it and said he would always wear it, wherever he went.

Mens Citizen Eco-Drive Watch BM8220-51L

I bought the watch for my husband and in particular this model as it has an Eco-Drive - this really appealled to him and he loves the idea of never having to put a battery in it as it charged through a solar cell/charging with natural or unnatural light. Another great feature of this watch is that it also has a 5 year guarantee by Citizen Watches.

I have to say it is very clean elegant looking mans watch, simple but stylish. It is modern in design and has a stylish blue face. The watch is nicely presented in a its own unique box. good weight and feels solid when worn. For the money Id say it was a bargain, ticks all the boxes.

I know the review is about the product itself and not the service of The Watch Shop but I feel I really need to let customers know about the great service I received from the Watch Shop too. I was disappointed to be let down by another watch company 4 shopping days before Christmas. The Watch Shop had the same watch in stock, honoured the price for me price promise and also the watch was delivered the very next day.

Quality Service and Product.

A Great Big Thanks to the Watch Shop.

I bought this watch since it has a small face diameter to fit my thin wrist. This watch is perfect if you have a small wrist and the watch is also thin light weight. Citizen is a very good Japanese brand and the watch is very well made. The dial is clear and has both day and date. The day can be set either in English or in French. The blue dial is very dark, which is almost black. The watch is Citizens Eco-Drive, which means it will never need batteries..!! It is solar-powered and has the ability
to store energy to run for 6 months in total darkness!! Great watch.

A nice smart watch. Like the fact it shows the day & date, comfortable strap with easy fastening, like the fact that hands glow, brilliant that it does not need batteries, as it it one of the eco-drive range. The colour of the face was darker than expected, but this did not put me off.

Really pleased with this as I have slim wrists, so it doesn't look too huge on me.
Really like the shallow depth on the body.
Had to download instructions from Citizen website to set the date/time correctly, but it was very easy.
Would have preferred a lighter weight, but they didn't do a silver/stainless steel finish in the right size for the tungsten models.
Nonetheless, I like my purchase.

Very well made watch, with intelligent eco-drive system. However, a bit to slim, shiny and bracelet like to be a man's watch.

Question: why buy a Citizen eco-drive watch?

The search was on for a watch for all occasions; something that wouldn't look out of place while plumbing the new shower or attending the captain's cocktail party on QM2. Nothing too large or ostentatious either. Being delicate of frame and wrist, the town hall clock-size timepiece would throw me off balance and the many functions of the chronograph would be too puzzling. Something basic and easy to read was the order of the day.

Senior Management (aka my wife) already owned two Citizen eco-drives and recommended them enthusiastically. This is backed up by the fact that she wears one or the other all waking hours.



My previous watch was a freebie, offered as an inducement to buy a shirt. Unfortunately, the shirt in my size was not available but they sent the watch anyway and it has served its purpose for a number of years. Time for a change then.

Googling round the net brought up WatchShop.com and a large range of impressive looking machinery. bearing in mind the aforementioned criteria, it didn't take long to choose. The day/date watch with the blue face and white hands seemed ideal.

The watch was duly ordered and turned up in no time at all. By a strange coincidence, the very moment the package was opened, the old watch stopped. A good omen?

I am really impressed. The white hands stand out well from the subtle blue of the face, easily satisfying the clarity criterion. The day/date display is a bit on the small side but is no problem since this information can be seen on the front page of the Telegraph. An added bonus is that when the light gets dim, the hands become luminous, a great help to me, being somewhat chronologically challenged and suffering the inevitable eye deterioration. As for size; spot on and quite slim.

So, why buy this Citizen eco-drive watch? Because it's elegant and stylish, looks right, is fun to wear and will shine on all occasions. Oh, and very important, there'll be no chance of the battery expiring when I'm half way across the Sahara or trekking in the Amazonian rain forest.



Citizenship is cool!

I was looking for a man size watch that would not look too big on my small wrist and this watch suited very well . The hands are luminous in the dark which is also a plus. If you like silver, both watch and bracelet look very good.

The silver markers on black face are not as strongly pronounced as the hands but easy enough to read .

Very nice watch with a clear dial which is easy to read, which was what I wanted as I had to put my specs on to see my last one.

Very quick delivery and very competitive price as well.

No hesitation in recommending watch shop to others.
