Corso is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 26.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Citizen Corso watch Very nice watch, only complaint is that its not as blue as it is in the pictures. Is more of a dull blue, almost a grayish blue. Other than that, its very clean and a joy to look at. Gotten a few compliments already.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Picture doesn't do it justice. I purchased this watch as a birthday gift for my son. It was a milestone birthday, turned 30. He also recently received a huge promotion at work and I wanted him to have something he could pass down later in life. This watch was everything I had hoped for, absolutely gorgeous. The features were impressive as well. Of course he loves it and was taken aback by it. Well done Citizen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eye Catching Find I just recently purchased this watch while I was at port in Cozumel on a cruise. I didn't need a new watch, but just walking by it caught my eye. I have gotten many complements on it since and can where it causal or formal. I really like the fact that its lightweight and comfortable. Great purchase!

Hey Citizen team, I bought this watch yesterday and I noticed that number 9 on month day indicator is upside down. Have u noticed this ?

Asked by: lukjan
Yes, the position of the 9 on this model is intentional, as this makes the reading of the numbers on the outside of the sub dial easily readable

Does this model (BU2070-12L) have sapphire crystal as advertised? Some of the corso models show mineral and some show sapphire, but there doesn't appear to be much of a price difference.
