This is my first solar watch, and my first radio controlled (aka "Atomic clock controlled"), and my first Citizen watch - so a first on many scales!
While I waited for it to arrive, I decided to do a bit of research on the Citizen website and I found that they have short online videos on how to operate different watches - much better than reading a "dry" instruction manual...and much easier to follow; here's the one for this particular watch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J7m9LtHoOng
So, I finally got the watch, followed the step by step instructions from the video and I was wearing my watch less than 10 minutes after I had opened the box! The watch itself is very nice looking, easy to read, clean lines, a bit on the big side (but that makes it easier to read, so a +)
I live in Northern VA, so I could not receive any radio signals during the day - but at night I left the watch on a window sill facing due West, and next day...voila! the watch had set itself to the correct time and day.
I really like this "set & forget" concept - and added plus is that you really do not have to worry about batteries, as long as you give your watch some sunshine! (or any other light source for that matter - LED lights work great!)
Overall, highly recommended! Now, I'm hooked on this technology! Check out the photos :
