Powerful Statement watch.

Sweet watch. My 3rd Blue Angel piece! Love the backlight feature and luminosity on this watch!

I'm a retired US Navy Parachute Rigger and spent 22 years maintaining the ejection seat mounted parachutes/survival kits and every piece of flight equipment a US Navy and US Marine Corps Aviator will wear, including the HGU-33 flight helmet used by the Blue Angels Flight Demonstration Team (the visor should be gold instead of chrome but I understand ;-). This watch has been on my watch "Bucket List" for 2 year, and now one is mine. It's beautiful and I'm proud to wear it, but maybe not for the fact that it's a Citizen... The folks at the jewelry store didn't know how to set it and there was no instruction manual in the enormous beautiful box. They did adjust the bracelet and when I saw the small metal working hammer come out to drive the pins back in, I cringed but it was too late and they removed a link from both sides and damaged both sides. I took hours of searching the internet to find very little on setting the watch but finally found a video on citizenwatch.com that mentioned manual adjusting if a radio link failed allowing me to set "Daylight Saving". Then I registered the watch only to realize that the "VERY COOL" metal limited edition ID card didn't match my watch. The card indicated 2951/9999 and the case back indicated 1690/9999. Then I wondered if they 9999 were manufactured over multiple years, because I couldn't discern a date of manufacture. Can Citizen tell me more? I was hoping for a card that matched the watch, but that may not be possible. And lastly, the laser etching (I'm guessing laser) is blurred on some of the numbers and letters, specifically the movement identifier isn't as legible as one would hope for a new expensive Citizen watch. I think this one is number "Two" from top-of-the-line Promaster, just under the Titanium version which I'm sure is actually available in the Blue Angel configuration. So, maybe I'll be able to find a new bracelet to install someday after putting a few bucks back into the Parachute Rigger's indulgent cookie jar. I would have gladly provided pictures but the option to do so was not working.

Great looking watch

I bought this watch yesterday (9/21/23) and the feel and look is incredible. My other Citizen eco is nearly 10 years old and has kept perfect time but I love the look of the Blue Angel watch. Will enjoy both for years to come, worth every penny!
