Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great military style watch! I had wanted an ecodrive watch for some time now. I like the simple military styled look and basic functions of the watch and the overall look. The canvas leather backed strap was a bit stiff but with wear that softens up. There is no printed instruction manual in the display box but it has a warranty card with the website where you can learn the set up and functions online. With just a day/date and basically time setting it's ready to go in minutes. Mine came with a good charge on it, and the second hand was ticking one at a time instead of the "two second" low charge movement of the second hand. It is a handsome looking men's watch, not huge like others that some seem to like. I set it to the atomic clock online and it is about one second fast per week, perfectly acceptable for my use on a daily basis.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the watch, don't like the band This watch was given to me as a Christmas gift. I own two other Eco-Drive timepieces and have been very satisfied with both. This was my first with a non-metal strap. I loved the casual look of the watch with the simple face and olive band. The Eco-drive feature is my favorite, never having to worry about batteries. I leave my watches on a stand in my room near the window so they are always charged. This particular watch looks great and functions flawlessly. The large numbers on the face are easy to read. They are also feature luminous finish that will glow in the dark for several hours when charged by the sun. My only complaint for this piece is that the band was quite uncomfortable. It has large grommets long the band on both ends that dug into my wrist and caused me to sweat under the band to an uncomfortable extent. The canvas portion didn't cause any issues, but the grommets cover enough of its surface that the band was unusable for me. I ended up switching the band out for a spare leather and nylon one I had from an old Timex watch. Now the watch is one of my daily wears. I will most likely own many more Citizen time pieces, but will stay away from ones with bands like this.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just about perfect This watch is great. It keeps time well enough and is thin and pretty light. The solar is about my favorite watch and is probably the only way to go now days. I do have a few complaints though... The band is good but the metal grommets are kind of annoying when taking the watch off, but the band is of good quality and is holding up well. The stainless watch is pretty good but I have already scratched it, perhaps they could make it harder to resist scratches... I do wish the glass was inset some to protect it, it is currently flush with the housing. I haven't scratched it yet but every time I bump it I worry about it. I love the face, but I wish the hands were longer. In low light it is some times hard to tell which hand is where and I've read the watch incorrectly multiple times because of this. I love the blue glow, it's so much cooler than the typical green in watches. I do wish the crown was a little smaller but it's no big deal. I have had this watch in prolonged exposure to cold temps, about 14 hours at 15 degrees Fahrenheit and never had an issue. This is a great watch and I enjoy wearing it every day. I do have complaints and things I would change but it is still very nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Accurate I like this watch a lot. I love this watch for its accuracy, simplicity in design and quality. Accuracy: It gained 3.5 seconds in 20 days i.e. if it keeps this accuracy it will be just about 64 sec in 365 days. I plan on setting it about 30 sec behind at the beginning of the year. The seconds hand lines up with the minute markers perfectly every single time. Size: I knew that this was the size i wanted, i have about medium sized hands. The watch is perfect size for me. Band: It is stiff. Because of the placements of the holes, it was either too tight or too loose. I bought a new leather band, which goes very well with it. Luminescence: I wish it was a bit brighter in the night. I highly recommend this watch.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Different! I had read many reviews about this strap and thought, I can change it if I choose. But mine does not have an "odor". Granted I have not worn it in the summer yet. I find it comfortable. It could be a little longer; I have small wrists and am is second hole.The rivets or metal around the holes at first looks cheap, but it is what makes it the type of field watch it is meant to be, rugged and basic. If they offered to replace the band for free I would refuse.It is what makes the watch it was intended to be. Looking at your next few questions am I rating the band or the watch??!! OK I will rates the watch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good watch for the price I bought this watch on sale on black Friday and got a great price. I couldn't be happier with the watch. It keep great time and the solar function is awesome. The original band is fairly comfortable, especially once it breaks in a little bit. I changed it out for a black band and it made the watch look like a dress watch. It's like having two watches in one. When I want to be active I put on the nylon green strap and go out hiking or exercise and then I can throw on the black strap and wear it to work. Either way it looks good and functions well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Less is more A great watch that does what it needs to do - tell time! The design is simple and classic and one that I know I use for generations. With the Eco-drive, it alleviated my main concern with quartz watches - changing the batteries and keeping the water resistance. Since I don't have to change batteries, that is no longer a worry. It doesn't have some of the high-end features (e.g., sapphire crystal), but for the price, the features and quality are top notch. I consider this a good everyday watch that can be dressed up and down with just a change of the band.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for! My wife surprised me with this watch for Christmas, and to be honest, I was really hoping she would get me an apple watch. After wearing this beauty for the past month, I haven't even thought about wanting an apple watch. Weird, I know, but it's the truth. This has style and simplicity that is unmatched. I did end up swapping out the band for a silicone band so I could wear it in the water and not have a soggy band. The stock band is nice, and will probably switch it back and forth depending on the occasion.
