I can't see why this watch is so expensive, It's just a radio controlled solar watch.

Well not really, it’s not a bog standard radio controlled watch since they take their time keeping signal from ground based transmissions. This is GPS/Satellite based timekeeping.

Not a bad price at all, throw in that 10% discount code for signing up to emails and another £41 quid off.

Thanks useful info. But unless you aew going to some place where ground based radio signals aren't available, I can't see it as a great advantage. Of course if it actually gave your position,,,,,
It looks like it's solar powering is superior to some others as it doesn't only use sunlight
Just brought a citizen eco drive titanium and sapphire glass lens watch for £200 which is better materials for half this. don’t see what’s so good about this watch

Well if you click the link I left on an earlier post (assuming you haven’t) it will certainly give you the full run down about what makes this different from the norm. As it happens I’ve got nine Citizen’s of variety, radio controlled, Sapphire etc etc so it’s fair to say I like the brand, but, much as I like this watch I would still be struggling to justify the outlay, I do nevertheless appreciate the technology within.

It's just a shame that you still have to manually adjust for DST, otherwise this would have been awesome.

This will pick up the time much quicker than a radio-based watch. This is about 2 or 3 seconds (assuming you’re outside or near a window) compared with much longer, sometimes over a minute, for a radio-based signal. And this version does use location info to set the time (that’s why there are two modes shown on the face, one for time and another for location) but in this case it takes longer because it has to poll multiple satellites. The only thing this doesn’t do is account for daylight saving because that info isn’t contained within GPS comms, which radio-based watches tend to do. The manual (and comparison reviews) confirm this, ut people tend to prefer the robustness and speed of the GPS watches despite this.

It's not just to do with that, but with the standard radio time signal, you still have to localise the time, e.g set it to London if you're in UK as the signal (From Frankfurt, I believe) just gives the correct no-localised time. Not sure if that really makes sense, but I know what I mean!

However, I am by no means saying it is a hardship to set your watch to where you are etc. but I have travelled through far parts of Europe and been unsure if I was still under central European time, for example. I believe thud watch in a couple seconds would be updated to the local time (except for DST, which some countries vary their implementation of anyway - last time I was in Perth, Australia they had gone one way then the other and then back again of trying it or not!).

Well I've got a Casio which updates itself to the nearest time signal when I go to Japan (there are two in Japan) The English one used to be Rugby but it moved ages ago. I had one of the first (I think) digital wristwatches made by Jungangs a Mega 1

I do believe he means, show us what watch. Just because its Citizen and Titanium/Saphire glass doesn't mean its comparable to this watch.

Just my Casio doesn't need to be switched to a local lf radio station, it just (presumably) seeks the best signal. It doesn't need updating for Japanese summer/winter time which apparently this GPS watch does.So the only advantage of this system is that it will correct itself everywhere.

Japan doesn't have a DST, so they don't put the clocks back for winter.

I'm not aware of any watch that has to be switched to the signal, it is automatic. With your watch, if you fly from Japan to the UK, you still have to manually set it to UK time as the watch will still show Japanese time until the next reception of the signal (e.g 2 in the morning). Basically with world clock watches such as yours and my own G shock and non-satellite Citizen, the radio signal (From wherever), updates the central time on the watch and the watch can independently show whatever time zone, accurately.

I’m not sure why Japan has 2 signals, but the whole of the US has just one, Europe one and there there’s China covering mainland Asia, I suppose.

Anyway, can we just agree that there's a place for both types of watch, which are not exactly the same in function and that the extra price of this does mean it's not appropriate for a lot of people (me included, although I do want)?!

If you paid £200 then that’s certainly a very respectable price for titanium/sapphire but in fairness it lacks any form of automatic time keeping so in reference to your original comment that’s the price difference really, whether you personally think the premium is worth it or not is another matter

Again fair enough, but if automatic time keeping is worth the extra £250 on HUKD’s when it’s a bargain site I’m 100% certain it isn’t. with inferior materials but just my 2 cents

Yep well it’s naturally down to personal preference at the end of the day, I look for radio controlled above much else and I guess a deal I posted over Xmas is a good example with auto time keeping and sapphire although the Amazon price on that particular deal has shot up again to usual radio controlled prices

But is it a "bargain site"? A deals site, yes, but I would argue there's a difference, otherwise there'd be no heat at all for iPhones or Samsung Galaxies, when there's Chinese Androids available etc.

Bottom line: is this the best price for this product and is it worth it (e.g not inherently faulty, poorly reviewed etc.)?

I agree, most definitely a difference, this particular post is a ‘deal’ if compared to most other retailers current price, considering it as a bargain is purely a subjective opinion.

By the way this does have anti reflective sapphire glass. I thought it did and it was stated on Amazon but I wanted confirmation and it doesn't seem to be on citizen's UK page, but found it on the German site!
This seems right around my budget, have wanted a decent watch for a while, but I've been waiting for ever for the 10% off code, just doesn't seem to be coming. Anyone have a spare?
Citizen GPS watches are great. I recently bought this one citizenwatch.eu/pro…0e/ in the U.S. at a Citizen store for £420 (converted from US$).

They simply rip us off in Europe with the prices
Still waiting for the a decent price for the at4007! which was £235 over Christmas gutted I missed it. Now waiting for the at4008 as well because they are such a lovey looking watch hopefully price will go down soon! Also got my heart set on the at4010 but I can never see the price dropping on that it is basically a American model
