    Quartz Pertual Calendar Day-Date Sapphire -- does it exist ?

    Hi,

    Timekeeping woes not ending just yet for me.

    I had posted earlier my sad story. In short, Oris broke, I swayed in the direction of hassle free/maintenance free quartz. Got the Citizen AT9013 Radio Controlled watch.

    Now, the Citizen is a certainly cool watch.

    But I noticed I have to manually sync it as somehow it is not able to get the signal during night. No sweat with that. I do not mind synching it up manually.

    However... today... even during manual reception, it was unable to synch up... THREE times !!!

    I believe I will have to live with this somewhat flakiness around the way radio watches receive the signals if I keep the Citizen.

    I still have time to return the Citizen so what do you guys recommend ?

    The features I am looking for...
    - Priced around GBP 350.00 / USD 500 .
    - Quartz Movement. Battery powered will do. Even better if it is Solar recharging.
    - AR Sapphire
    - Leather/Rubber strap preferably. (Bracelet would do but will have to replace it asap to a leather/rubber as I do not fancy shaving my wrist)
    - Perpetual calendar function which displays Day and Date
    - Arabic Numeral marking (just love the way Hamilton dials are graduated, something similar to that)

    Does this watch exist ?

    Regards,

    Welcome, Horatio (if indeed that is your name)

    Have you checked out the Seiko Premier range?

    There's one here. Doesn't have your Arabic numerals though.

    Hi Geofbott,MarkingTime

    Thanks for your inputs.

    The Seiko Premier don't have a Day and Date actually and the quartz Seiko Premiers are chronographs actually.

    That Citizen looks pretty good although it has the same issue i.e. no Day display. But also selling at GBP 675 on Amazon... so a bit out of budget for me.

    But do please keep the suggestions coming in.

    Regards,

    I believe the Tissot T-Touch Expert is a perpetual calendar... should check all the boxes.

    Hi Paulopiper,

    That is indeed a perfect match there.

    Now to look for a review which might tell how complex is the process to set it just in case.

    Hi Doboji,

    Thanks for pointing that out. The T Expert is a very cool watch really, I never noticed cared to look at it due to the LCD on it.

    However, it is way above my budget, but a very cool watch nevertheless.

    Campanola will do it, as well as the Citizen Signature Grand Complication (no numerals though).

    There are plenty of affordable Citizens and Seikos with perpetual calendars too.
