Titanium?
#2
Additional info on the website says steel case, but when you enlarge the pic it clearly says Titanium on the face.
#3
I think the steel/titanium issue depends where the watch is shipped from. USA models are mainly titanium but uk spec is usually steel unless specified .....
#4
I didn't want to see this deal now I need another month :(
#5
Nice watch.

Any idea what size the watch is at all?

Am looking foran oversized watch like TW Steel.
#6
Nice looking watch but I imagine telling the time might be difficult in poor light.

Or am I missing the point :-)
#7
Surely you can't tell time on this...
#8
Hands blend in to the dial, A watch is for telling the time?, this seems to prove that it seeing the hands on a watch is secondary.
#9
Nice watch and heat added but I have a cheaper black face/black hand citizen model and you cannot see the time unless it is well lit. The hand lume is not good at night either. Quality watch though.
#10
Using Amazon (UK) site - this is the spec. Not sure about the weight though!! and most UK sites quote titanium case.

Sexy looking but reviews across the web state two main negatives 1) Impossible to read the dial in anything other than direct light 2) Finish wears off easily leaving shiny metal underneath. Heat added as this is a cheap price.

I used to own a Seiko Kinetic Titanium for many years - finally the mechanism gave up, but the watch case etc were still in pretty good condition.
I decided to replace it with a Citizen Eco Drive Titanium. Serious regret. The so called Titanium case and strap etc became scuffed and scratched in no time. Within 6 weeks it looked older than my 6year old Seiko Titanium...I work in an office - so no rough stuff to explain the condition.
1 year on I am looking for a new watch because the Citizen looks so bad - chips on the glass face, scuffs all over the place.

Your Seiko mechanisms didn't give up because they just don't. Did you keep it? It will have a failed capacitor, something that happens to kinetics over time (particularly older ones), you can buy and replace yourself for under £20, worth it for a trusty watch.

I don't know the model of your watch or how you treat it - I've had eco-drives for years and a titanium chronograph (not this one) for three years - the case, crystal and strap look almost as new. Cheaper watches are likely to have cheaper finishes ..... but overall I have found Citizen eco-drives to be good quality and reliable.

Movement quartz? Thanks but not thanks
#16
This must be a brand new site or under construction, it's unfinished and they only stock 2 brands?
#17
I have many Seiko, Casio and Citizen watches including a Seiko solar titanium and a Citizen Eco Drive Titanium, from what I can remember there is titanium or part titanium depending on model and ££'s. And there is mineral glass or sapphire glass depending on ££'s again. So ££ has an influence on how the scratch and scuff marks appear (sooner or later) rather than Seiko or Citizen as they offer ranges to fit all sorts of pricing ranges and quality.
banned#18
Dodgy unfinished website selling a ridiculously overpriced watch.

Cold naturally.
#19
Not one of Citizen's better watches; it looks like it would be hard to tell the time at a glance and the design is ugly, but that is purely a personal point of view.

Would never go for another Auto, most I have owned just fail to keep good time, after all that is what a watch is supposed to do is it not?. eco drives for me now, not long purchased a radio controlled one. Superb.
#21
I purchased another citizen from designer watchword and was very happy with the service, watch arrived in time stated.
#22
I have purchased another citizen from this company, have to say I was very happy and received watch in time stated.

Auto at anything under a £1000 unless its a victorinox/other unknown swiss brand is futile

Quartz watches are superior, fact

I'd hardly call Sinn and Nomos unknown.

I'd agree with your last statement in that yes they do keep time better, but are only superior in the same way hybrids are superior cars and clarks are superior footwear.

Review on YouTube I just watched stresses it's lightness and toughness and indicate its titanium.
Hands looked visible ..,,
Other prices online all higher than this..,, well done!
Again.... If you don't like it ... Don't buy one.... Just stop whining!

Good deal Heat added!

No, hybrids would be superior if we could build batteries that would provide more power than petrol and hold more charge

Quartz are in every way superior

Clarks are not in every way superior, you cant run in them lol

Sorry i meant unknown to me, i own a victorinox automatic and it has thye same movement as a £2000 tag for under a £1000. , and better build quality

I had the capacitor replaced once by Seiko - close to a £100 - which went again after 2 years. When I say the mechanism went I was generalizing - didn't want to explain the Kinetic stuff...

I paid £300 for the Seiko and £200 for the Citizen - so definitely not the cheapest end of the range. For £200 I would have excepted the strap and case to be a bit more resistant to scuffs etc..

Quartz are not superior in everyway at all, if that was the case automatic watches would not exist nor would there be any demand for them. They do exist and they very much in demand, why? Because they have character, engineered complexity, design and workmanship vastly superior to even the most desirable thermo-quartz movements. If all people cared about was accuracy the world would all be wearing radio controlled digital watches. Also unless you buy something like a Bulova (or engineered solution to the problem) they have an annoying "tick" second hand, highly undesirable on any decent watch.

As for your Victoronix, it will no doubt have an ETA movement similar to many of big brands and are "ok-ish" value. However you have managed to hit the dead zone between desirability and functionality, your Victorinox will not be as accurate as a £10 quartz and has non of the appeal of a big brand watch, yet you still spent £1000 on it. At least they make good army knives! You could have bought a Chris Ward for half the price, had a better watch with and garnered some respect from people that really know a thing or two about watches. You sound a little bit out of you depth on this topic.

Proof that christopher ward make better watches, and victorinox watches are well loved on specialist forums. Out of my depth lol, rather be out of my depth than sound like a pretentious moron like you do , mate. Christopher ward watches are junk, and frankly your opinion is starting to want me to bash my head against a wall, why would i care about respect from a old man in tweed who smells of urine...

thanks but no thanks, your argument is worthless since you've not once shown how automatics are in any way functionally superior or at the same level, instead your spiel concentrates on subjective opinions.

It's hard not to be pretentious in the face of such dogmatic ignorance and when faced with ridiculous statements like "quartz watches are in every way superior" and "Christopher Ward watches are junk". So quartz are only "functionally superior" now, and not in every way? When did that change? CW are based on ETA or Sellita movements, ironically identical to those found in the upper models of a certain Swiss army knife manufacturer.

You believe your own self indulgent tripe if it makes you feel better, the rest of the world will judge you with facts. As for the petulant insults you threw in for good measure, they only serve to prove my point and further alienate you.
