Citizen Men's Eco-Drive Promaster Nighthawk Dual Time Watch...
  • Stainless steel watch featuring date window at three o’clock position, dual-time display, and pilot's slide rule inner chapter...
  • 42 millimeters stainless steel case with mineral dial window
  • Eco-Drive Technology, Never Needs a Battery

This nice watch can be worn in both formal and informal occasions.

I like the classic aviator appearance as well as the decent weight and size.

Also likable about it is the stainless steel case and band which are less likely to corrode, rust, or lose their shiny appeal.

It’s a smooth-running watch and seems to have everything in place.

The hands move swiftly and silently.

It keeps accurate time thanks to the Japanese quartz movement and also does feel comfortable on the hands.

This is contrary to some types, which have somewhat rough edges or leave marks on the skin.

The water resistance is good for everyday use.

You also don’t have to worry about it spoiling in case it is rained on or you spill a drink on it.

You can also take a shower, bath or swim with it.


-Nice looking and classic

-Well made and durable

-Clear dial and accurate movement


-The numbers are somewhat small

2) Citizen CA0500-51L Review

Citizen Men's CA0500-51L Eco-Drive Titanium Nighthawk...
  • Eco-Drive is fueled by light so it never needs a battery
  • Titanium silver tone with blue dial
  • 60 minute chronograph with date

The first impression you may get about this watch is that it is heavy.

Looking at the description, it has a 42mm case diameter.

However, you will be surprised by how light this watch is.

One reason behind this is the titanium construction, which is lighter than the more common steel.

Nevertheless, it’s several times tougher.

This means that it will handle the use, mishandling, the elements, and other things much better.

The timepiece looks very lovely and should suit most men. It can be adorned for formal and s casual events.

One certain thing about this timepiece is that it is accurate and dependable.


-High quality and affordable

-Strongly built and lightweight

-Good weight and size


-It is not very flashy

Citizen Eco-Drive Women's FB3005-55E Nighthawk Analog...
  • Eco-Drive is fueled by light so it never needs a battery
  • Black ion plated stainless steel bracelet with black dial
  • Chronograph

First, this is a women’s watch by the manufacturer’s definition.

However, if you’re a man and love the classic and timeless appeal, then I don’t see any problem for you to pick this one up.

It has decently stainless steel which isn’t clunky.

The finish is shiny and smooth and this boasts wearability.

The size and weight are well balanced to offer the best comfort.

The display is very clear during the day and also at night or in the dark.

The mineral crystal is not scuffed or scratched easily.

It also handles vibrations, bangs, and impact quite well.

For good time viewing, you can count on the good lume on the hour markers and hands.

It is an accurate watch and runs perfectly. It loses very few seconds and is also energy efficient.

A closer look shows that it is powered by Citizen’s renowned Eco-drive mechanism.

-25% Sale
Citizen Men's Eco-Drive Stainless Steel Quartz Aviator Watch...
  • Vintage style watch with brown leather strap
  • Blue dial and stainless steel case
  • World time in 26 time zones, Perpetual Calendar, anti-shock and date display

One thing I give this watch credit for is the easy time viewing.

I love the large Arabic numerals, which are much easier to see.

They are large, well-spaced and their silver-tone is Very visible against the blue dial.

This timepiece looks elegant and most men will appreciate the styling.

It feels lighter than most pieces in its class.

One of the main reasons is probably because of using leather instead of stainless steel for the case.

The band feels less clunky and is also quite flexible.

It’s among the best when it comes to changing time zones.

The process is simple and straight forward even for a first time user.

This makes it a good traveling companion.


-High quality and reliable

-A very nice and accurate watch

-Changing the time zone is very easy


-Leather band might not be for everyone

5) Citizen BJ7009-58E Review

Your father, granddad, son, husband, spouse, or a male friend will appreciate this watch.

It has a bold and outgoing appeal that is symbolic of masculinity.

You will also realize that it isn’t too flashy.

However, reading time is easy thanks to the large hour markers and numbers.

The hands and hour markers are bold and large and illuminate in the dark.

The wearer will have fewer issues in regards to the correct time.

I love the textured steel band, which gives it a rugged but nice appearance.

In contrast to its appearance, it has a smooth band.

With a water resistance of 200 meters which is 20 ATM or 660 feet, it’s a safe watch to swim, bath, shower, or walk in the rain with.

The metal construction and finish also retain its classy finish and does not fade, tarnish or corrode.


-Great, beautiful watch

-Well built and durable

-Good timekeeping


-It’s a relatively large watch
