A Loud And Unique Design
Sometimes, you have to take risks, and this watch is definitely one that paid off for Citizen.
Instead of looking tacky, the colors of the dial contrast very well with each other and really help the best features pop.
Wearing this watch definitely shows off since that one has a really cool and unique sense of style.
The analog/digital face of this watch takes the best features of both.
I prefer digital chronographs over analog ones by far.
They are just much easier to read and much more convenient.
That’s why Citizen did the right thing by making that the main function of the digital display.
It looks great and doesn’t overpower the bold analog dial.
Add that to the bright, silver-toned case and bracelet, and you have a really cool casual watch, that can certainly go well with formal wear when done right.
Precise Timekeeping And Sustainable Movement
No matter how well made a watch is, if it can’t keep proper time, it isn’t worth it.
That’s why I really appreciate the atomic timekeeping feature on this piece.
Radio signals that are synced to 43 cities around the world are received by the watch and adjust the time accordingly.
Seeing which timezones you’re synced to is very easy as well as it is displayed on a digital screen on the dial.
To power this technology, you need a sustainable power source.
Which is why Citizen chose to use their Eco-Drive movement.
One that is powered by light, meaning battery changes won’t be needed.
They even claim that with regular exposure to light, the watch can tick for a lifetime.
This is great since having to change the battery is the biggest caveat to quartz watches.
Customer Scores And Reviews
I went to the Amazon review section to see what customers thought of the timepiece.
And all I saw were people who loved the watch as much, if not more than I do.
They all pointed out how the unique design looks great with a lot of different styles and compliments have been coming their way.
The only complaint I could find was of one person who had a difficult time setting up the watch.
This is understandable, as it is a tedious task.
However, if the manual is giving you a hard time, there are a bunch of YouTube tutorials that will make the task easier.
The design of this watch is a risk worth taking.
The colors look beautiful, especially with the silver case.
Aside from that, it has a bunch of functions to make this watch cooler than it already is.
If you have a knack for combining style and function, this would be a great piece for you.
