My first post and gotta say I love these forums, a tonne of good info.
I am in the market for a new watch and stumbled upon the Citizen BL5265-21E. It is Eco-Drive and selected it due to the fact that as much as I (think) I love automatic movement, the eco-drive just made sense to me as it is accurate and is "hands off". I think this little beauty is right up my alley. My only wish would be to have a map meter feature on this model to make it perfect for me. Do you know of any Citizen watches that incorporate that feature?
I have looked at Seiko's SKZ317 which is a nice looker too but would it be too chunky on a 7.5 inch wrist? The left side crown is quite pronouced don't you think?
Looking for an everyday wearer and while in time I will add more, I need a tough and durable watch that can handle mild abuse at work and play (field telecommunications). My last watch lost its water resistance and filled with water. I think I wore it almost every day for six years. Yeah, I am into long term relationships lol.
Here is the citizen (The beaut)
Here is the Seiko (The workhorse?)

Well guys and gals, there we have about what two months of exhaustive internet searching and many of these threads did for me. This will be a daily wearer as I have not yet been officially bit by the collecting bug...yet.
Thanks in advance and take care.
