Citizen - Blue Angels World Chronograph AT8020-03L
I think everyone here knows this eco-drive watch. It has a fuel consumption dial, I'll never use it functionally, just to annoy my friends by spinning it around and saying, "Ain't this cool?" The time set easily, it was at the LAX time zone when I got it, I reset it to CHI and the time automatically advanced. Tonight I'll leave it by a window for automatic radio update.
The case is 43mm by 12mm thick. The dial is very busy and cramped, so it takes eagle eyes to read it. I can't imagine piloting an airplane while trying to use the functions, I'd crash. The lume on the hands and indices is bright and blue. It has other functions like chronograph, day, date, power reserve, and can calculate the calories in food. It's not very heavy but maybe a little bit for a quartz. The Blue Angels insert on the case back appears to be plastic, it's cool, but if it were enamel it'd be super cool.
I've seen reviews knock the band, yes, it's a bit stiff but not uncomfortable for me. It has a yellow vinyl backing and blue leather front. Behind the vent holes is a blue mesh fabric. I doused it with Armor All (after testing a bit of the leather) and it didn't change the color. Is the leather treated with a coating? It feels that way. Also, I've seen knocks on the strap buckle, that the edge isn't rounded and cuts into the wrist. Yes, I could see how that might be, but it doesn't cut into my 7 1/2" wrist.
The look, functions, and finish of this watch is incredible, it's a technical marvel, I feel it was a bargain at $289.
