Rated 3 out of 5Â by rmmcdon Excellent watch, but difficult to read.
I'm a huge fan of Citizen Eco Drive watches. They never need a battery, and they can be immersed in complete darkness for several months without loosing a charge. These watches are extremely high quality at a great price. Unfortunately this watch is very difficult to read. The dark watch face, the dark numbers, and watch hands make it impossible to read unless you have plenty of light. I like the style, and I like the black nylon band (very comfortable). I've just purchased the same watch except with a lighter watch face, brighter numbers, and brighter watch hands.

I was hesitant to buy this watch for my husband after the reviews about it being difficult to read. I bought it anyway, and I am so glad I did. It looks great on him, and he loves it. He receives compliments all the time. You cannot tell the time if it is too dark, but that hasn't posed a problem yet. The band he especially liked- he has a bad wrist that is constantly swollen and found that this nylon band was more forgiving around his wrist.

Best watch I ever had, set it and forget it. What amazes me most is its ability to take impacts and scrapes without marring the finish, impressive. It's my everyday watch, the styling is nice and subtle. Only to be used for telling time in the presence of strong light though, as the photoluminance is minimal and short lived.
