This is my first post here and I am planning to buy my first automatic watch. I do not have a very huge budget too. I am stretching my budget to 300$ (i started off at 150$).
I was considering both Orient and Citizen. I read through a lot of comparisons between them and know that both have Japanese movements.
Considering the styles I am now looking forward to buy NP1000-55E of Citizen.

I have been trying to find a seller since a few days now. I contacted Citizen customer support directly and they say they do not sell it here in the US. Therefore they forwarded my request for details to their Japan facility.

Does anyone here own this watch? If so, can you please let me know how good this is? Do you know where I could buy one here? I found one website which was selling this but it is now out of stock, they too have no idea when they can get one for me.

The other watches that I am considering to buy are :

Orient : ez09003b, et0q003b, dh00002b
Fossil : ME3052.

They are newbie kind of watches, but as mentioned this is just my first one.

Kindly suggest and comment.
