Good every day watch

I like the look of the watch. Been wearing it 5/6 days a week for about a year. Keeps time well--I think I'm only gaining ~8 seconds per month. The black face and steel body are nondescript enough that it works as a nicer office watch or a sports watch. I replaced the straps with a trio of NATO straps that I can swap out to change feel/match my work shirt (I got a black, a green, and a red/white/blue). A few quibbles: 1) second hand alignment is pretty poor. Misses its marks by a considerable amount across most of the face (like, falls halfway between the second/minute markers for a good portion of the face) 2) lume is great looking and very bright, but it fades pretty fast 3) I wish the minute and hour hands were just a little longer. This one is personal preference. Overall, it's a great watch that keeps good time, hasn't given me any trouble, and can be worn virtually every day. I recommend it, as long as the 3 caveats mentioned above don't bother you too much.

Great Watch on the Job or Around the House

My actual rating would be 4.5 -- Only because of the unsat wrist band. I regularly rotate four Citizen watches: Two with the legendary F150 (GPS) movement, one Promaster Skyhawk Titanium, and this Chandler. One you replace the "stylish" but stock clunky wrist band with a good quality NATO style band (i.e. Barton), you've got a smaller, thinner watch that keeps good time and doesn't get in the way. A NATO band gives you the security of two spring bars, so the likelihood of loosing it is pretty low. This is the watch I wear working in the yard, pounding nails, paddling my kayak, etc. There is definitely no bling to this watch, which is one of the main reasons I like it -- nothing that visually gets in the way of telling time.

Why is my date indicator in Spanish?

Like the watch: however, I would prefer the day indication in English rather than Spanish. I don't speak Spanish. I ordered the watch and have always lived in the USA. I would like to change the day indicator to English if possible.

Citizen Response Thank you for your feedback. We apologize for the inconvenience, but there is a simple solution. There is a setting on your watch where the language can be changed to English. For example, rotating the crown clockwise will change the day indication. We will contact you through email to provide additional assistance. We are happy to hear that you like the watch!

Fantastic ideas take time. Citizenry is timely.

"What does a wife get for her husband's birthday? and I'm running out of time".. Yup that me talking out loud... That's right, I talk to myself while strolling through shops, shopping for 'The Gift'... About to call it a day, I check my watch knowing it quietly keeps perfect time... That's when my brain clicked in gear - 'My Citizen keeps perfect time - Eco-Drive just keeps tick-tick-tick'n'...Hey! The Husband, my sweetheart, put this totally fantastic watch on my wrist!" - I know I'm thinking the same thinking: 'where's this Gal's go'n with this review? I know, you know how memories are? Holy Merd, it's been eight (8) months, takes a minute or two, remembering and writing a true review - Woosh! Life, you live it. You watch the time, it goes slow, you live it, time goes by fast. Anyway, I realized I've stopped walking, do the check the 'Mall' compass and realize that I'm looking through a store front window displaying Men's Citizen watches. And it's registered for Certified Citizen's watch repair, and jewelry? I'm in! Huh, I swear timing is everything. Yup, you guessed it... My Husband loves his Citizen Weekender Garrison Field Watch! I actually surprised him, and he loves the watch! I love him. So, he wears the watch 24/7 for over a week, we're talking surfing; swimming, more surfing, showering etcetera, a Harley ride or three; life is good. Then, he mentions that he'd like to change out the watchband. He'd like the same but a longer strap, the Man knows what he wants (I like that) - fine by me - I've done the same thing many times. Sometime later that week, we hit the Mall, destination is the Citizen store. Okay. The store clerk helps (NOT!) as she states there's no option. WTH? There is NO other band. I was about to wind her clock, ring her bell...Oh wait a second, that was then, this is now. The main event here is to praise Citizens fine workmanship. The Men's Eco-Drive Weekender Garrison Field Watch in Stainless Steel is not only a handsome watch, but also a beauty. I highly recommend this watch. That beauty is what brought me to the site. First to leave a fun review; to let Citizen know how cool the watch is and knowing when it's time to stop wasting time. I have faith there's a watchband that fits the bezel size and my Husbands wrist size. It's been keeping time sitting in the box in-between Eco-Drive Sunbaths. Maybe I'll not find a wristband (doubtful that I won't succeed) ... I will take the time, because like a Citizen watch... I too am a Citizen, one that stays in style as style is absolutely timeless. Did I mention I love Citizen watches? The Eco-Drive just is sweet.... I almost forget a certain Taghuer - Almost. Did I forgot to mention that I just love watches. Give me hands that tell time...Lovely. Digital? Thats for the cash register - Cha-ching! Ciao for now ~
