This is my dress watch or evening wear watch. The one I like to wear at dusk or night. There is a bit of irony because it is a solar powered wristwatch. Citizen's own eco drive. They have two batteries and a pulsating second hand to tell you when it needs charging.
I leave mine in it's round case facing the window for maximum light and to this day I never had to charge it. It is impressively accurate. I have synchronised it with the atomic clock software running on my laptop and I have barely noticed a discrepancy between the two for several months and it is still going.
The brown leather strap is very soft and slightly rounded to mold your wrist. The only trouble with this design is that it cannot be laid flat on its back, but needs to sit on its side if placed on a table. It also tends to sit face down on the crystal which is not as scratch resistant as a sapphire crystal.
The luminous hand has a lovely blue tinge to it. I have noticed it glowing going through the tunnel. The shiny stainless steel casing has a great finish and sparkles even in the dimmest of light, it has a closer feel to a perfect chrome finish. There are no numerals only graduations. The chronograph is as per most quartz with a reset. Nothing too special but functional for timing the wife getting ready.
It is a very elegant watch and the brown chocolate dial stands out because of the contrasting stainless steel casing. I believe it is one of the best design from Citizen. The price is mid range affordable. A picture will never do this wristwatch justice you are better off seeing it for real.
