    BM8470-03AE: better than expected

    I picked up this watch used on eBay and had to search google images till I found the model.

    I got it so I wouldn't have to wear my Datejust everywhere (I'm a consultant and an expensive watch is not always the best thing to wear). The Eco-Drive it's starting to grow on me. I've had it in the water for a couple weeks now and no signs of taking on water whatsoever even after 2 hours of snorkeling the Dry Tortugas today. Time is perfect and lume is satisfactory (something I wish my datejust had). The leather strap is not liking the salt water but that's easy to fix. For $75 I think it's a great bargain. I can leave it on the dash of my truck and not worry about time being off when I pick it up, or a battery going dead. Not bad at all.

    Don't leave it on the dash, the heat will kill it if it's in sunlight, and any idiot with a brick will get tempted. It's a great looking watch, and these BM range from citizen are tough

    Salient point about being a consultant and making the right impression: a good Citizen, Seiko or Casio shows the right appreciation for sensible quality and cost effective performance. Nice one!
