    Citizen Skyhawk Vs The Casio Giez >>>

    I would like to ask which you guys prefer i will do this also in the S,C,O Forum, but how do you guys stand with this? While the Citizen is not Atomic it might as well be for the accuracy of the watch, be it you cannot synchronize it though. (Please post of pictures of your GIEZ Guys)

    Difficult, and I can see why someone might be interested in both. The Citizen wins on functionality, but much of that is geared towards pilots - so if you don't fly it might be redundant.

    Personally, I wouldn't use (or understand) the bezel slide rule, so that might put me off. On the other hand, which would I rather have in my hands now - if only for the 'play factor'? The Citizen.

    I have had both models but no longer do. Gave each to family members. If it where a Skyhawk atomic model (which is made) it would be a no brainer in me going to the Skyhawk. With non-atomic I still lean slightly to the Citizen as it's got more functionality and I like the large seconds hand much better than the annoying sub-dial seconds.

    Skyhawk or GIEZ?

    Both have rather busy-looking dials for my taste, but there is one particular GIEZ I'd like to have, if it weren't for the price.
    DW-9051/2
    G-9200 Riseman
    G-9100 Gulfman
    G-9000MC-8D Mudman
    GW5600J
    GA-100A-9A

    Sucks to be without a G.

    I find the Citizen particularly busy as I do most of the Skyhawk range, but I do think they're a better all round watch over the Giez...


    ...so neither really, but I'd keep both if I got them for my birthday.


    If Citizen made these with a cleaner, sharper face and bezel design, I'd probably go for one. Love those limited edition eco-drive divers they made to commemorate antarctic expeditions iirc.

    Skyhawk, no question about that.

    There are a many different versions of the "Skyhawk" and a few of the "GIEZ".

    Speaking about the atomic/solar Skyhawk...generally, if they made only a 24hr subdial on the Skyhawk, and not the unadjustable UTC subdial, I'd prefer it. I'd really like them to make the slide rule "click" when "60" for the fuel lbs lines up with the triangle on the Skyhawk too so it would hold that position when not in use.

    The GIEZ was just too hard for me to remember which mode is where. The lcd display on the Skyhawk makes this much much easier.

    Now...if you would open it up to the MTG, I'd vote in big favor of the MTG-1500.

    The Skyhawk AT is a really nice watch, but with that G-Shock factor and macho look of my GIEZ, It has won me over.
    I know a lot of people don't like heavy watches, but I do as it gives a feeling of high value and class to the watch, and this metal bracelet GIEZ is heavy.
    I think my GIEZ might be the one that you like Bogeyman?

    As does slimness and lightness.

    I'm not sure about this, as most cheap dress watches are normally very light and not very bulky.
    I think it would be harder to find a cheap oversized and heavy watch?
