What brought my attention to this watch was never needing to replace the battery with the use of the "Eco-Drive" technology. I also like the quality of the Citizen brand. This was one of the least expensive watches I could find by Citizen; now I gave it my full attention. The face and the band were slightly smaller than I expected, but this was no big deal. I also like that the number markings glow in the dark- quite brilliantly I might add. The case is made of titanium- which just sounds cool, and as an added bonus it is water proof (resistant?). I would have given it 5 stars, but it wasn't quite what I expected. Nevertheless, I am still quite happy with it.
- How did the image on site compare with the actual product? Pretty accurate, the face was smaller than I expected, but no big deal
- How accurate was the sizing? Sizing was good
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. The rubber strap seemed a little lightweight, but it is holding up fine.
Great watch, would like to see timex make their bands in different colors other than black and brown for this watch so I could purchase many more.
- How did the image on site compare with the actual product? Spot on
- How accurate was the sizing? perfect
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Nice strong rubber band, solid construction
I got this for my husband for Christmas and he loves it. It looks so nice and seems to be very durable. My husband is allergic to all metal except titanium, which is not easy to find in a watch, so this one is perfect. The rubber band has an almost leather feel to it which is super nice. With it not needing batteries and being pretty much waterproof you can't go wrong with this one.
I can't say enough about this watch. I've got very small wrists for a man, this fits all sizes. The athletic rubber band is great and I have 1 year of constant use on it with no signs of wear. I beat the hell out of my stuff, scuba diving, wake boarding, swimming this thing takes everything I throw at it. Still ticks after leaft in glove compartment for several weeks. Keeps time well and remains readable and luminous for hours into the night. ECO DRIVE IS THE ONLY WATCH I WILL EVER PURCHASE AGAIN.
This watch was a wonderful Father's Day gift. My dad's old watch was broken and he had been dropping hints about things he needed, so imagine his delight to see what was in the green box. Because he works outdoors a lot, this type of band is great! He's also mentioned how frustrated he had become with always having to replace watch batteries. With Eco-Drive, he'll never have to worry about batteries again. I should know, I also own a ladies Citizen Eco-Drive and love it. It's gorgeous without breaking the bank!
Found this watch while on vacation in the Caribbean. Did not purchase it at that time, but wished we had. Found it at overstock.com and ordered. Service was excellent, and watch is wonderful. Not only does it look great, it is awesome for water activities:)
very attractive, comfortable rubber watch band with a very adjustable fit, and, best of all, it doesn't need a battery - ever. Just wear it and it stays charged. Dark face, light marking, easy to see at a glance. I haven't tried submersing it yet. If I had to name something that could be improved - the luminous markings could be a bit lighter, but, I was wearing a similar Luminox watch before, known for bright luminosity, so probably any other watch would be too faint. Overall, I'm very, very pleased with my purchase, and Overstock got it to me quickly!
I purchased this watch for my husband for a Father's Day gift. His everyday watches battery finally gave up. He is a military officer and has always worn a digital style watch with all the bells and whistles. He had recently been out looking at dressier watches so when I found this one, I snatched it up. It has the same type of band as his old watch ( a rubber like material) but has the beauty of a Citizen watch. It took him a little while to get used to reading a clock again but after that adjustment, he loves his new watch.
