thanks for posting this.. just bought

I'm very tempted OP but I couldn't justify the price - not much cash left.

It aint pretty....

Not my cup of tea.

"More recently, Citizen has staked out a new position as the leader in Ecologically Friendly timekeeping with its Eco-Drives watches that are light powered. It starts with a simple, yet revolutionary concept: a watch that is fuelled by light and never needs a battery. Citizen Eco-Drive technology harnesses the power of light – from any natural or artificial light source – and converts it into energy which is stored in a permanently rechargeable lithium-ion cell. It recharges continuously in any kind of light to run forever"

So a lithium-ion cell is NOT a battery. It is a lithium-ion cell, ok?

I'm almost certain that the watch was listened on Amazon before the Black Friday event. Lot of people on here mentioned the website uk.camelcamelcamel.com and im 90% certain that the watch had a history previous to the 24th November.

Sounds like they just re-upped the watch to show it at the maximum price, to assure no one seen it previously at £70'ish.

(Could be totally wrong though)

I got the £52+ in the sale - it is a BIG watch - roughly 2" (5cm) in diameter, including a chunky "crown" for adjusting time/date. DON'T try to pull the crown out to the 2nd position as in the instructions. Luckily it feels quite tough but to change the date I will have to move thro the days using a slower method.

The ninja description is apt as the dials are near invisible - a quick blast of a torch or daylight and the luminous dials can be picked out. Cute idea but nobody will be able to tell the time unless they are 5 inches from the watch face.

Luckily the canvas strap has a rubbery backing or I could see this being needed to be replaced on regular daily contact with sweat or hand-washing.

A nice fashion watch that looks a bit different from the norm.

Black hands on black face - would it not be easier kicking a black cat at night time until it told you the time?

Yup genius ain't it? Next they'll sell you a watch that can go invisible but only when you look at it

It's got to be the ugliest watch I've ever laid eyes on

Sollas001 - to change the date you need to pull the crown out to the second position and turn it anti-clockwise.
As for not being able to see the dials, I have no problem seeing it at all. The hands and numbers are a lighter shade of black which makes it easy to see - perhaps you should consider an eye test you are having problems seeing it in daylight?
The only problem i have had
so far is seeing it at night as it doesn't glow for long enough, but I've not had a chance to charge it fully yet so perhaps that's the reason why.
All in all I'm very happy with it and think the black Friday price was a good price.

beware buying this as a present for someone. make sure they like the design first!

First watch I've seen that I actually like in ages and ages. Heat added!

I concur
Easy to read (even though its black on black)
Not enough time to charge luminous dials
Position 2 was easy to change time.

I bought this when it was offered on the Black Friday deals. Really like it but I'm a fan of watches that look different so not everyone's cup of tea. Still love my Nixon Dictator more than any other watch though

i like look of this watch too but think i'll treat myself to this hugo boss one instead

A bit out of my price range but nice looking watch.

got this on my wrist today after black friday and already had a few people at work say how nice it is. I have also had no problems reading the time so am interested to see how many of those making comments have actually seen it in the flesh. Very nice and this is still a good price for something that I looked around on the net for and sells for £150 normally! Also goes with the work uniform which is black shoes, black trousers and navy blue shirt!

I quite like the look of all these all-black watches, I'd prob get this one if I had a much bigger wrist (and wallet) Diesel Watch

It's ain't pretty and it look cheap!

Look too dark
