Didn't see this reviewed on WUS, so here is a quick review of the Citizen AVION AW1361-10H:
Got it from Amazon for around 150 USD:
First impression: What a huge watch!
At 45mm without the crown, the AVION is a monster. Crown is huge as well bringing the watch to a staggering 50mm width. It is also equally fat and imposing with a "double crown" (an additional outer ring on top of the body) as well as slightly domed glass:
Speaking of the product photos, I was expecting the red highlights to be strong, but they are quite sedated, almost like a sandy orange color:
The dial was what got me interested in the watch, it has a great sense of depth, composing of 4 "layers" if you include the date aperture. Minutes, military time and regular hour marks are present.
One thing I like is that the seconds hand always seems to be on-beat with the seconds markers on the dial, something a lot of quartz watches have problems with.
I had read that Eco-Drive watches were difficult to service and required to be sent into a Citizen repair shop to do a battery replacement, so I was happy to see that the movement layout was similar to regular quartz watches, with easily accessible battery. The battery model is Panasonic MT621. (Rechargeable)
(Look at that huge movement spacer!)
Back feels quite solid and has a rubber gasket bringing the water resistance to 10 Bar. Crown feels very smooth to operate, I think there is a gasket there as well.
I am fond of the back engraving featuring a globe:
So, does such a big watch feel heavy? It's a bit heavier than most my watches, but it's not proportionately based on the size. It weighs in at 86.5g, which is 26.5g heavier than the Seiko SNK.
Being fairly low-weight, it's still quite comfortable to wear and the leather strap is quite soft, albeit very thick.
Overall, I like the watch, but I feel its size and thickness limits its practical use - it bulges over shirts and other formal attire yet you can't really wear it outdoors due to the leather band either. A beautiful piece, but a bit impractical. Will probably be a rare wearer, so it's nice that it's a quartz watch as opposed to mechanical.
My first WUS review, let me know if you have any questions/feedback!
