This review is from: Citizen Calibre 8700 Eco Drive Mens Watch BL8097-52E
Pros: Looks great, solar powered, durable, great price for the quality.
Cons: This watch did come with one of the worst manuals I have ever read. It also came with two preset alarms that the instruction booklet failed to describe how to turn them on or off. The one that went off at midnight every night was fairly easy to figure out how to turn it off and on and change the time. The alarm that went off every Monday at 5am was a bit more challenging in figuring out.
Other Thoughts: My old Eco-Drive watch died after I owned it for 8 years, and at no fault of Citizen. It died only because I was near a large turbocharger that over-sped, ripped itself apart, and my watch ate a large piece of steel and died (actually kept me from losing my hand). This event probably won't happen to you, so your watch should last a lot longer.
Anyways, after that I was happy enough with my previous watch that I bought another Citizen Eco-Drive and am very happy with my choice.
