    Citizen do a ladies radio controlled AT World Time Watch that is within your budget.



    Looks like a smart piece for her line of work, very functional, just the right size, and nicely feminine too. It seems ideal.

    Re: Watch for flight attendant?

    First, I think ShaggyDog nailed it with a great suggestion.

    With over 30 years on the other side of the cockpit door I have a few thoughts: The nature of the job is hard on a F/A's watch. The watch has to be tough - getting banged around the galley, having wine (or less pleasant things) spilled on them, etc. But most flight attendants also want a watch that will look good with the uniform, particularly if working for one of the airlines that have more formal uniform attire. Readability at a quick glance in low light conditions is also a plus. You didn't mention what airline but most new flight attendants with a flag carrier aren't going to do much international at first, spending most of their short overnights within a couple of timezones of home, so some multiple time zone piece is nice but not essential. Bottom line: It should be tough, classy, easy to read, and low maintenance. Hey, sounds just like us guys!
    Seriously, congrats to her and best wishes on her new career. Also good on you for being a thoughtful brother.

    A nice feature of any of the Citizen World Time A-T watches is that it's really easy to change the time when you're in a new time zone. You just pull the crown one click, rotate the crown to the correct time zone, then push the crown back in and watch the hands rotate to the correct time.

    A disadvantage of some of these watches is that they don't show two time zones at once, which may or may not be important. Edit: The one shown above does appear to have a subdial that can show a second time zone.

    Good suggestion. It has some Tiffany blue on the hands which most women like.

    This is a great piece. I need to check that out and see what color combinations are available. It maybe he answer or close to it.

    Thanks.

    Take note that depending on where she intends to fly or where her employer assigns her to fly, not every country has atomic radio control signal. In fact most of the world does not. Ideal would be GPS controlled except that most are huge and overly complicated.

    I might get hung for suggesting this, but what about one of the Glycine vintage line watches. I think they have then all the way down to 38mm.

    Cosign the citizen. As functional as they are, G Shocks are hardly stylish watches.
