I only buy Citizen watches now, for two reasons.
1) band has small enough links making it easier to conform to my wrist size. A diff brand I used to buy for their battery-free feature would either be too tight or too loose when band was adjusted.
2) The amount of money I used to spend every year replacing batteries ended up costing more than the watch! Eco-drive feature works out to a free watch over time, that's how much money it saves me on batteries during the life of the watch.
I chose this watch for the unique octagon design. Subtle yet different. The 5 minute and 1 minute tick marks improves accurate telling of time. Day of week is a nice feature too, was not a criteria of mine but I like having it. It faintly glows in the dark, I didn't even realize it does this till I brought it home. I've been buying citizen watches for decades so I know the gold tone finish will not wear off.
Beautiful watch, you can't go wrong with Citizen.
