Quality watch but too difficult to read

The workmanship of the watch is great and has the features I wanted but it is really too hard to read - and I have excellent vision. There is not enough contrast between the hands and the background -- the website photo is misleading. The green background is attractive, but there is a faint white hazy vertical line that I thought was a defect but seems to be on the web photo as well. Reflections on the crystal, especially in indoor light, further reduce visibility. The leather band has a hidden metal clasp that actually works well. The difficulty reading the watch is the deal breaker and I will return it. I would like to get another Citizen EcoDrive, but I won't buy anything unless I see the actual watch first.
