Chandler is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 26.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as durable as the look would suggest I would not recommend any field use for this military inspired watch. Although the look would suggest ruggedness, the durability is sub par. I have had this watch for less than 2 weeks and already have a nice scratch across the crystal face. Meanwhile, I have worn my other watch daily for 10 yrs and the face is still flawless. Love the look, very disappointed in quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile Watch I like that you can wear this watch for any activity. Looks great in a pair of jeans and the durable Cordura fabric strap is indicative of the quality you would expect from Citizen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what i needed I work in Emergency Services and needed a quality watch that looked field ready and this watch was exactly what i was looking for. The band matched our required uniform colors and i do not have to worry about scratching the band.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Looks great This watch looks great for everyday casual wear,easy to read and set up,downside and this is why 4 stars not 5 very short strap and hands do not glow in dark.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful But Not Durable Received this as a Christmas gift from my wife back in 2017. It’s awesome and works with replacement 20mm wrist bands. The crystal face was scratched within two months and isn’t as durable as it leads on to be. Do not wear it if you’re going to do anything rough. Not military rated or industrial rated. Only office rated. Love the Echo drive and look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Watch Strap The watch strap is too short for the average adult male in the USA. Why would Citizen design such a short strap for this watch? I can barely strap on the watch, and I think I have an average size American wrist!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Close but no cigar! I own two Citizen watches! The Skyhawk and the Chandler chronograph watch with the olive green wristband. I love the Skyhawk because I do some flying. I love the options it has and the wristband fits is great. But when I am not flying I wear the Chandler chronograph watch. With the exception of the wistband being a tad to short it’s a great watch. So I set out to get another watch that was military in nature. This watch caught my eye. But after purchasing it and bringing it home it’s not what was expected! Like my other Chandler the wristband is a hair to small. I don’t understand why Citizen makes such small wristbands. They must think that all men are short and small. Also instead of having illumations on every hour it’s just on every quarter hour and there is no back lighting. So if you are the dark I hope you have good vision because you won’t able to tell time unless it’s on the quarter hour. Also the wristband color is very deceiving. On the internet and the catalog the color is portrayed as a desert tan. But actually it’s more of a taupe to a light green.

Can you purchase a longer strap for this watch? Bought this as a gift for my husband, but the band is short --- he'd like a little longer one.

Asked by: clmwaz
There are many sellers of NATO watch straps that you can buy for 20 bucks and change out in a minute.  I have large wrists and ordered a after market strap the same day I ordered the watch. Don’t let the band stop you from getting a watch you like.

I've seen a number of complaints about the length of the strap... my question is what length is the last setting? I have skinny, bony wrists for a somewhat fat guy. Will this watch fit my 7.5" wrist? I'd like to add it to my collection if I can wear it.

Asked by: Geramus
Hello Geramus...The last setting (hole) is at about 8.25". My wrist is just over 7" and I have three more holes to wear it looser if I wish. I think you would have two holes left to allow you to loosen the watch. I have skinny, bony wrists too. Good luck.

What is the width of the band for this watch? 20 mm? I bought the watch but the strap is way too short.

Asked by: Ben H
The total strap length is 7.5 inches. The top strap, at 12, is 2.75"(ignoring the buckle) and the bottom, at 6, is 4.75". I only weigh about 140 lbs so the watch has plenty of room for adjustment. Good Luck.

Can this watch display a second time zone or not? Is the lower subdial just a pm/am indicator for the hour shown by the main dial hour hand or can the subdial show a different hour? For example, can the mai dial hour be 3 and the subdial hour be 10?

Asked by: Curious
So... the sub-dial is NOT a true (adjustable) GMT dial but merely a dial for showing military time? That's disappointing. I just decided against buying this watch.

Is this watch water proof

Asked by: Batman

The band material for this watch is listed as cordura, but it also has what appears to be leather around the buckle holes. Does anyone know for sure if it is genuine leather? I can't find any information on the material of that aspect of the band.
