    Citizen F100 cc2004-08e (limited edition 500 pieces worldwide)

    Hi all! Here is my Citizen F100 titanium, all DLC, Satellite, Eco-Drive watch!

    I replaced the stock white band with the DLC band from the cc2004-59e model.

    It is a Satellite watch, meaning it synchronizes with satellites orbiting the earth to provide accurate time wherever you are in the world.
    This review is short, because only pictures do the watch enough justice :) It is so simple to use. Its truly set and forget except for when you need to sync.
    This is a watch that does not even need a manual, the design is completely intuitive.

    While the stock white band is nice, I also like the DLC band because it makes the whole watch look more stealthy :)

    Here are some pics I took!

    Yes, but its broken! all the hands point at 3...


    Just kidding, its beautiful!
    The blue lettering looks great.

    Very shiny in that black diamond way


    P.S. The stair-stepped black section of the dial also looks better than on the standard version... that's really the dial to have.
    The only thing I always wish for with these is MOAR LUME!

    A Citizen rep told me: "It is important to us, that our lume is completely non-toxic, you could eat it without ill effects!"
    I said: "Since I will not ever eat the lume off my watch, I'd rather have the toxic stuff that stays lit till the morning hours!"

    Haha! Thanks sir :)

    Agree the blue lettering and darkness of the watch fuse together well! I also like the stepped ceramic dial, it adds uniqueness and looks really nice in person.

    I also agree about the lume! Its annoyingly weak! I have to tilt the watch in the cinemas with the right angle so that hands catch the light :) More toxic lume would be great!!

    This is a lovely watch and when I have a spare $1300 AUD I'm going to get one. I prefer this from the Seiko because of the clean, crisp dial. However, the CASIO GPS Satellite MR-G is lovely too, but quite a lot more expensive and less of a dress watch.

    Couldn't agree more and thanks for your thoughts! Its the nicest Citizen watch design I have ever seen. It has all the information needed without making the dial look cluttered like a lot of other Citizen watches. The $1300 regular titanium version looks fantastic also, I say go for it. The watch itself has a lot of design elements taken from actual satellites, such as the stepped ceramic inner dial and angled edges. Its a timeless design with the right level of futuristic appeal... definitely one of a kind. Similar to you, I was looking at the Seiko GPS/Satellite watches but the design of the F100 just blows away any increase in functionality that the Seiko offers.

    I got my watch from an authorised Citizen stockist as I plan to keep mine for a long time and the 5 year Australian warranty is reassuring! In closing, I highly recommend this futuristic and classy fusion from Citizen! So cool to be able to get a sync in about 5 seconds in Australia, its such an empowering watch to wear knowing you can sync it anywhere in the world on demand with lightning fast speed!

    That's correct. Its 1 of 500, and the only CC2004-08e I know of with a titanium bracelet as well (which makes it 1 of 1) :)

    WHERE did you get the black band for the watch? Did you buy the other watch or can you buy separately? I don't like my white band so much...


    thanks mate!


    BTW, any idea why there are so many CC2004-08E's available on eBay? Thought Citizen only made 500, seems like they are all on ebay?
