Definition of "Simplicity" w/all my fave features

Light Titanium Sapphire Crystal Day/Date Display Very easy to read with my old eyes. Fair price for a very nice watch :) Eco-Drive - NO BATTERY Excellent Warranty.

Almost perfect

This was a gift from my wife. It's an extremely accurate and nice looking watch. Two things make it less than perfect. 1-The lum is not very bright and doesn't last long enough. In my mind there's simply no reason for this and it is by far my biggest complaint. 2-The day / date display is too small. Otherwise the size is just right for me and it's very light weight. Adding a glass crystal protector makes it very durable too. I've not had any issues with the crown as others have noted. So close to perfect...

Garrison Is A Quality Simple Watch.

I picked the Garrison titanium because of its light weight, large easy to read dial, eco drive, and quality glass. Now that I’ve lived with it on for a few weeks and subjected it to daily light construction abuse I’m satisfied with my purchase. My only disappointment is that the Lume isn’t bright enough throughout the night for me to read the watch on the side table in the wee hours. If this watch had tritium tubes it would be absolutely epic.

Put titanium case and sapphire on the old model

Bought this as a replacement for my 20 year old Garrison (the smaller one with the white day/date). Wanted the sapphire crystal because the mineral crystal on my old one has become heavily scratched over the years and I’m hoping the sapphire will hold up a bit better - which was basically the only reason I didn’t get an identical replacement for my old Garrison. Overall the watch is very nice, but I’m not a fan of the larger size, I wish the lume was more white and less yellow, and my biggest complaint is that the day/date indicator is awful. The use of very thin lettering on a black background makes it nearly impossible to read at a glance and/or distance. My old one used black letters on a white background and that was perfect - legible at a glance and in nearly all conditions. Not sure why Citizen didn’t use that on this model because it is far far superior to the day/date display on this watch. Another minor criticism is the limited amount of fine adjustment on the metal band clasp, more would be better, and I couldn’t get a comfortable fit so I just ended up replacing it with a silicone strap.
