I posted this review in the Main Reviews Forum and thought that it may be helpful here in the Citizen Watch Reviews area as well.
After owning the Citizen AT4010-50E watch for a short time, I have decided to post some pictures and add this casual review. This review may help someone decide on whether or not to buy this watch. I am not a collector or any type of expert but just a lover of watches. I am retired from the Engineering field and wanted to upgrade my daily wear watch (my previous watch of 30 years was an Oris chrono automatic). My choice for a new watch was the Citizen AT4010-50E and I am super pleased with my decision to own this watch.
I ordered this watch and received it in quick order from Princeton Watches on-line for $524. Princeton is an authorized Citizen Watch dealer so it came with a 5 year warranty. The watch came enclosed in a case with a user booklet and instruction CD. This watch is gorgeous!! The titanium case and bracelet are very lightweight and a joy to wear. It would be a shame to replace the comfortable and handsome bracelet with any aftermarket strap! The brushed titanuim is beautiful with the polished ss inserts. The first night that I received the watch, I placed the watch on my bedroom counter to recieve its nightly 2am radio signal from Denver. In the morning I checked the signal strength and it completed with a HIGH signal. After checking the on-line atomic time with my watch, I could not help but giggle as the watch was set to the correct time to the second! The high tech nature of this watch will appeal to anyone that wants a sporty looking watch that never needs to be adjusted or batteries added! The time, date, and power supply of this watch and pretty much hands off once you have it set. All you need is a little light to keep things going! The chrono is really nice and I will use this from time to time. A daily reminder alarm can be activated and I actually use this as a get out of bed reminder for my daily farm chores (collect eggs and feed the goats). I doubt that I will use the Tacymeter but it is nice to have and gives the watch a bit of a sporty look. Overall I am loving this watch!! Absolutely perfect for my needs. I love looking at this watch daily!! Below are some brief specs for the watch and pictures that I have taken. Feel free to PM me if you need any specific measurements or have questions. See you around on WUS. Fredrick
