Have no idea about good watches apart that I like the design of this model...is it as good as appears from the description..?

I have this watch with the black steel strap.

It is a brilliant watch. Scratch proof screen and never drops a second. Certainly worth it at this price.

Lovely looking watch. Really tempted! Trying to look for the black steel strap version but can't seem to find anything that is exactly the same but in black.

Found a Citizen CA0295-58E but it doesn't look as nice IMO.

This is a great watch, with built in radio controller so you never need to adjust time as it updates itself every night. Only thing I'd say is for the same money you can pick up an entry level Tissot or Hamilton. But if you don't care about brand name then this one here ticks all the boxes.

HOT. Great price for a great watch. I own the blue dialled version, accurate to the second, thanks to radio controlled time signal that the watch gets everyday at 2 am. I doubt you'll find another watch with similar specifications and quality at this price. I would highly recommend this watch to anyone
The only down side is that 4 of the 5 timezones are preset to USA timezones.

For those on a tight budget check out the CASIO RADIO CONTROLLED Men's Watch WV-59E-1AVEF.

looks beautiful

I have the black version of this watch and it is beautiful. Great price for this - very hot!

Thanks for the heads up on this, ordered. Came across it at EJ earlier in the week via PriceSpy comparison web site but was dissapointed as showing out of stock. At £170 I assumed it was a final clearance offer so certainly didn't expect it to be up for grabs again. Got the blue face version from Goldsmiths when it was on offer a while back, very happy to get the black also.

This is the black version, very hard to track down and the price is still around RRP

Citizen and Seiko make quality watches and provide great value. I would stay clear of these Armani, Boss, Etc designer branded watches they are just plain junk.

Always go for sapphire crystal. Citizen eco drive is a great movement as is Seiko kinetic.

This is a very nice watch, I have a couple of Eco Drives, one is the black version of this. I was looking for a cheaper everyday watch, one I did not need to bother about but at this price with the RC feature it is too good to miss. Citizens are good but you can tell this is in the next bracket over the sub £100 Eco Drives just by the feel. I just returned one to Argos because of that.

Seriously, that's like watching a scrambled TV channel.
A good watch has clearly defined hands which stand out from the rest of the fascia. The hands on this just blend in with the rest of the dials, what a mess

Watch designs tend to follow trends. There are many examples of skeleton watches that lack a watch face so you can see the inner workings of the movement. However I find them terrible to look at.

With respect that's a fairly pointless comment. The design won't suit many I am sure, but to state what constitutes a 'good' watch is a bit arrogant of you. As the saying goes, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

To each their own. Great features on this watch.

What puts me off more is the reputation of Ernest Jones on here and the Internet as a whole.

Anyone actually bought from them and what's your experience been like?

When you see watches like this which are 100% accurate and never need battery change / servicing, it does make me wonder why people buy watches such as Rolex /Omega etc for upwards of £5000. I get that they are beautifully made and automatic, but they must be charging at least 10 times what they cost to make and they are less accurate and need servicing every few years (at a cost of £600 or so).

Why do people spend £000s to hire a beach house in Malibu for a couple of weeks when they could just go to butlins for £200?
No idea either mate

I'm not sure you're serious? But this citizen is a proper watch. The boss one is just a cheap watch with a 'brand' attached to it. This will hold its value, the boss won't. This will continue to work in 10 years, the boss will be landfill

Thanks for your comment it was really helpful. I'm on a hunt for a new watch, I was really close to purchasing the Boss watch up until I came across this thread. I've only owned Armani watches ranging from £100 to £400 and never owned Citizen brand or now much about it. Are Citizen a designer brand, and what's so good about this brand compared to others?

Another member here if not sure if you're serious. If this really is a serious question, do a bit of reading on citizen and eco drives. I've had an eco drive for years and best watch I've owned. NOT a designer brand, it's a proper watch brand. And the difference between this and a designer brand, is night and day.

That one requires manual time setting. I was not keep either. Saw it in town yesterday. Cheaper at Amazon.

@micronX7 cheers that explains it

Indeed looks beautiful but I'm too cheap to pay an extra £130+ just for it to be in black.

Ordered this around lunch time and it has already been dispatched due to arrival tomorrow!

That's not the black variant on the link you provided, it's an inferior model altogether. Not radio controlled time keeping and mineral glass on the face as opposed to the superior sapphire, the Ernest Jones offering is a far superior Citizen.

this is a cracking watch. I have ordered it last night. Thank you OP. I have been looking for the watch for over an year to get it on a low price. You can't get a radio controlled, 200 WE, Sapphire glass watch for anywhere lower than this price brand new. The other watch I bought from H Samuel last week for 90£ is going back tomorrow. That was a cracking watch too but simply just not good enough to beat this watch.

Hi Sabreliner - thanks for clarifying

Grr I hesitated too long. Went to buy and now oos. If it comes back in, please someone message me to let me know!!

For anyone who might be interested this Citizen Royal Marines watch is also a great offer from EJ. Until recently never ever seen reduced from £299 anywhere. Not to my taste really but considering the body is made from ion plated titanium, ultra thick Sapphire glass (2.5mm) and fitted with a very tough Kevlar strap that's a heck of a lot of watch for £135. Next cheapest around £240 with many outlets asking much more.

I like military style watches - I have a Seiko 5 although the face of this one is quite a bit bigger - so I went to the nearest Ernest Jones to have a look. They only had the £349 Limited Edition version of the Marines watch with a bracelet, larger face, and without the Arabic numerals. Nevertheless I was impressed enough by the Citizen watches they had in stock to go ahead and order the watch you've linked to. £135, for Solar, Sapphire and Titanium seems great value.

Yep great purchase that, don't know how they can do it so cheap, great value.

This morning at 10am EJ website was showing in stock, later at 11am went oos. So called head office and they was able to locate one for me in Frenchurch Street, London. Apparently, four other people's names was in reserve incase I didn't turn up today!

I was probably very lucky.

The watch, feels and looks great on the wrist. It comes with 5years warranty but if you register online you get another year for free.
