This is a beautiful watch. Citizen did an admirable job of creating a modern racing watch that gives a nod to classic styling. I find the dial nicely laid out and functional as a tool watch. The strap is pretty stiff; I’m hoping it will soften up soon with continued wear. I don’t mind that the strap perforations don’t go completely through, but are done for show. The date window will be hard to read for many as it is dark and recessed far into the dial. That aside, I love the sporty look of this watch and, with it being a Citizen, I am confident of its durability and reliability.
