    What's the question? The 4008 syncs with the atomic clocks in Colorado and Germany, has a sapphire crystal but the chronograph is more difficult to get to. The 4170 has a more precise chronograph that appears more accessible and has a mineral crystal. The 4170 is slightly larger, too.

    It's kind of hard to say. It depends on how much you care about the atomic syncing compared to the chronograph. You may or may not get the German signal. You'll probably have to look into the exact location and range of the German tower. FWIW, I was able to get the signal in Edinburgh and Pitlochry Scotland, but had trouble in Inverness. I've also heard of devices that plug into a computer and mimic the radio towers, so that may be worth looking into. You'll also have to use the alternate time zone feature, but that's what it's there for.

    If you don't really care that much about the atomic syncing or the chronograph, then it's down to the aesthetics (how the watches look) and the crystal. I don't think either is "better" or "worse" than the other. The crystal is probably the only difference that can be thought of that way. They just look a bit different and have slightly different functions.

    You can try here too:

    Ceasornicar.ro • Vezi subiect - CITIZEN Radio Controlled - nealmurire.

    Also, you can ask there, maybe someone from Romania has the watch.

    If you use a Kohl's card with the right coupon during the right sale you can get a pretty good deal and it's from an AD. Right now just checking on the website that would get it for about $380 (just a quick Google search gave a 20% off coupon if you use a Kohl's card).

    Amazon is selling it for $400 right now with the Citizen warranty as well. They sometimes have promotions where you can get money off if you sign up for some emails.

    Those are the two best, authorized dealers I know of that usually have good deals.
