My so who is serving in the US Navy was in need a good sturdy watch. He had already broken several Fossil type watch because they just could not hold up to what he does each day. I have several Citizen Eco Drives myself and knew this would be a great watch for him. Since they don't need batteries he doesn't have to worry about replacement while on deployment. I found the watch I wanted on the Citizen website and thought I would take a chance and see if Overstock had Eco drives. Wow was i surprised to not only find an Eco Drive but the same one that was on the Citizen website for about $$$ less. This was my sons favorite Christmas present. He had not been home in over 13 months as he is on overseas duty so we wanted to get him something special. Thank You Overstock.com
- How did the image on site compare with the actual product? Very nicely!
- How accurate was the sizing? The watch needed to be sized but that is normal. My son has a small wrist so I just simple took it by a jewelry repair shop and for $8. they sized it for him by removing a few links.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The product was excellent quality. The watch was listed for $595. on the Citizen website so I was elated to find it at such a discounted price on Overstock.com
I had been looking for the "panda dial" Citizen Calibre 2100 for a while for the right price. When I saw one on overstock.com I nabbed it and couldn't be happier. Consider somewhat of an icon from collectors the Calibre 2100 exceeded my expectations in person more so than on screen. I still find myself staring at the dials and the silver wave pattern. The watch is heavy but once it's sized correctly (which took a few times) it wears very comfortably. I have a 7.25" wrist. The coolest feature of the watch is the eco drive / automatic hybrid chronograph. The second hand sweep and flyback is as smooth as one of Hamilton / Valjoux 7750 watches, but for a fraction of the cost.
