    My only one, arrived today!
    3 days from Hong Kong to UK.

    I'm not a collector, I usually only have a couple of watches. I have a soft spot for mechanical watches - how accurate do you need the time, I thought. But then I realised I was resetting my watch very frequently if it was only a minute out so I had a rethink.

    I was after a 'reference watch' that would always telling the correct time with no input which would hopefully become the only watch I need/want (I know most on this forum will find this concept ridiculous). There's no doubt I'll continue to desire the design of other watches, I just don't expect to succumb.

    If I do feel the need for other timepieces that perform a different function or have a different design I can worry less about their timekeeping if I have the one watch to fall back on that will be 100% accurate.

    Preferences:
    No batteries to replace (solar-powered)
    Radio-controlled (signal available in UK)
    All analogue
    Date
    Day
    Arabic Numerals
    Titanium
    Saphire

    This is pretty much the only watch that meets this spec.
    My other choice which came close was an all-analogue GIEZ G-shock which would have been more rugged but I prefer the style of this Citizen. I hope I don't end up regretting not getting a more shock-resitant watch.

    Don't need alarm but may well use it.
    Hour beeps is quite nice when it's completely in sync with pips on radio4.
    Don't need chrono but may well use it.

    The leather strap is surprisingly bulky and isn't very comfortable for me yet.
    Either it'll soften, or I'll get used to it, or I'll seek out a Ti bracelet.

    The watch is pretty big, much bigger than I'm used too. But it's light enough.

    I like it a lot, it's nearly perfect, but still have a bit of 'buyers remorse' I need to get over - I'm not good at spending this kind of money on luxuries.

    I got it for a good price so if I change my mind in the near future I shouldn't lose much should I wish to eBay it or sell it on this forum.

    Congrets.

    I wonder how this one went to HK , since it is originaly a "Euroland" type.
