An even better Eco
 from Hamden, CT,  Oct 13, 2009

Classic simplicity is the best way to describe this watch. My second in the Eco-drive line of Citizens, I am very pleased with the appearance and function and would recommend.Appearance: the picture doesn't do it justice. Every line on the watch is very crisp, with high-quality materials and tight assembly. The face is uncluttered and clean, with a nice contrast between the stainless hour markings and the jet-black dial. This is not a large watch, but classicly-sized and relatively thin one. It leans toward being a dress watch (black would go well with a dark suit) but given a plainer band would go with casual wear too.Function: setting the time and date is straight-forward, and once set, only the date reading will require updating depending on the month, as this keeps excellent time and never requires a battery or mechanical winding. Reading the watch is made easy because of the uncluttered design and high-contrast hands. The hands, however, are thin and do not have luminiscent markings for low-light and night time reading. I first realized this in a movie theatre when the watch was unreadable. Also, there is no magnification on the day and date display. I have no difficulty reading them, but if oversized readouts are required, this isn't the watch for you. Lastly, the watch band is a bit formal, being genuine leather with a alligator-style texture. I would recommend a plain black leather band considering the simplicity of the watch dial, and one that is a little thicker (personal preference).Ultimately, this is a high-quality and accurate watch; I would not hesitate to recommend it for yourself or as a gift, with a replacement of the band making it an every-day wearer.
