I bought this watch because I liked the idea of Eco-drive, no need to wind the watch or replace the battery. I have an automatic that needs to be worn daily or it stops and previous battery watches end up needing the battery replaced more and more frequenty. This model eco-drive looks great. Numbers are easy to see and the face isn't too busy. There's different textures on the face to give them a nice contrast in different light and the trim of the inset chronograph circles is really reflective, giving them an eye-catching glint. I preferred this line of Eco-Drive to the more expensive Calibre series because of the full circular dials for the Chrono features, the half-circles just look too asymmetric for me. Not a fan of that on a watch. I do wish they had a metal bracelet for some of the other colors in this family, I really like the white face model but wanted an everyday watch so the brown strap wouldn't work. I was able to size this myself with a $5 watch kit, using the spacer and hammer, it took about 15 minutes to remove 5 links, then add 1 back to fit. I was worried the watch face would be too big on my wrist going by the published measurements, but it looks great on my wrist. I confirmed at a local dept store before buying online that it looked OK on my wrist. It is a bit heavier than my other leather strap watch because of the bracelet and larger watch, but it gives it a nice quality heft that you quickly get used to. My only minor complaint is that it's height is a bit noticeable from the side. Use the included mini-CD to set the time, it wil take you awhile to do. The exact model # and picture is not listed in the CD, use the first 5 or so #s to match up the family of watches. Again, great price from Overstock, they had a nice sale on these that was far cheaper than the other major, authorized retailers. Some sites may be lower but they will not offer you the 5 year Citizen warranty.
