    Citizen Skyhawk Blue Angels JY0040-59L review

    This is my first review of a watch. I am wearing this watch most of the time since it's my workhorse when I drive trains. The atomic time feature and the digital disply with atomic time a very handy for me.

    The Citizen Skyhawk Blue Angels JY0040-59L is an atomic time driven watch. Powered by the very reliable Eco Drive, meaning that it is charged with light and never needs new batteries. It also tells the time in all timezones, multiple calendar, chrongraph etc. It just cannot operate the microwave oven, but it can almost do anything.

    The watch is self is very easy to wear, although it measures a healthy 46mm. It is not too heavy, also not on the stainless steel bracelet. The bracelet itself is luckily enough just good for me after I seized it. There are only half links to be removed and this can get tricky as we all know. The bracelet is very, very comfortable to wear.The buckle is very comfortable to open and close. It sometimes opens accidentally, due to the pushing system in the buckle.

    The case itself is very well made and comfortable to wear. I think you need to have big wrists to wear it comfortable. The crown sits nice in the case and does not stick into the skin at all. The bezel on the case is rotable, bi directional. Usefull? No!! Only if you are a private pilot or so. But it is no use at all for the normal wearer. It turns easy and this is irritating sometimes. The glass in mineral crystal. At this pricelevel it should be sapphire crystal. I learned that there is a replaceable sapphire crystal for this watch at a price of 100US$. On the caseback there is a very nice Blue Angels logo. Just love it!!

    Here are some wristshots of me wearing it in the train:

    The dial is, although there is a lot of information on it, easy to read. Big hands for the hour and minute and a yellow second hand counter. The displays are rather small. Too bad is when you switch to digital time on the display there is no date shown anymore. The digital time is for me the most interesting feature. The lume is good and glows very long.

    WR is 200m / 660ft which is really enough for daily wear and you can also use it when swimming.

    To my opnion this is a very easy and comfortable watch to use and wear.

    Pro:
    Comfortable
    Good lume
    Easy to read
    Very accurate (atomic time)
    Eco drive
    WR 200m

    Con:
    No micro adjustment
    Buckle opens easy
    Useless easy rotating bezel
    Mineral Crystal
    Too much information on the dial/bezel

    I hope you enjoyed my first watch review!
