Simple face, very legible, sporty. Quartz accuracy and perpetual calender are excellent features for those that are not watch savvy nor care to be. Interesting hour and minute hand shape, quite large for a small watch and both have green lume. The second hand has a sporty red highlight tip with a lume pip. Slate grey Dial has a very unique texture that I have not seen on my past Eco-drives....it is almost like a granite texture. Chapter ring matches dial color and has 12 blue lumed pips at each hour mark. All text is printed and rather discrete despite what the pictures may show.
Case is brushed ti with top stationary bezel polished ti. Crystal is sapphire with internal AR coating...works very well and has that “purpleish” hue to it at certain angles. The crystal does rise above the stationary bezel. Case back is a different looking ti material to my eyes. It has a “blasted” look to it. One 3 o'clock crown for adjusting perpetual calender and minutes. It also adjusts the hour hand, but only after depressing the recessed button at 2 o'clock. More on this later. Crown has 3 positions and in all turns very smooth.
Seems like it will be very comfortable...it is for my girl so we will see It is a mix of brushed and polished Duratect ti. Very sporty looking. Clasp is typical brushed ti with the Attesa text and log. I've always like the Attesa logo. Bracelet is rattle free. Clasp has the awesome Attesa "quick change" clasp with 3 positions for wrist expansion during activity. I think every watch should have this feature!
We will see come February 14th. A gift for my love It is a good looking watch, extremely light weight, scratch resistant, water-resistant, quartz accuracy, and perpetual calender. Perfect for my girl who does not want to mess with setting a clock or calender ever!
Getting back to setting the time and date...I'll simplify it best I can. By depressing the 2 o'clock button your crown in the 0 position now controls the hour hand which in turn controls the date. I know.....that is the only way to control the date....it cannot be adjusted independently, but with a perpetual calender, once set your good to go for the next 90 years.
The crown in the 0 position without pressing the 2 o'clock button does nothing. At the 1 position it shows you which year and month you are in by pointing to 1, 2, 3 etc. 1=Jan 2 =Feb. Crown at the 2 position changes minute hand. Odd module/caliber if you ask me, but once set you have little to maintain.
So I know she cares little about lume...she probably does not know what the word means....but I dig the lume! It looks as though Citizen took a fully lumed hand then put the white painted border on it. The lume is great and lasts well through the night. Cheers all!
