I think it says "mineral" here: amazon.ca/gp/…r=1

Thanks, ordered too for my Xmas present.

Easy refund if don't like it!

Nice find,but as other posts,do I need it(yes I do)do I tell the missus(no I don't)

That's the husbands Xmas present sorted. Thanks

Would you say it is a nice designed watch for everyday use and formal events? Thanks

"MovementSolar powered" useless in scotland

Does eco drive basically mean solar powered?

If so that could be a problem in the UK....

My missus said if you need it get it. If you don't need it, don't get it. Or was it the other way round ?

Don't think any Citizen ones do.

Bought. Had my ECO drive for years.
cheers op. Need to find a deal on a female one now.

Citizen and Seiko make best watches imho.

Will make a nice upgrade to my something-or-another watch which is currently occupying space on my desk and lacking battery charge.

Solar power only requires daylight not direct sunlight , so unless you only come out at night you'll be fine

the low end ones don't (just like most low end watches) but plenty do.

Sounds like you heard "blah blah blah get it, blah blah blah get it". X)

Hmmm just noticed this is an exclusive to H Samuel. Although its available as an Amazon exclusive in Canada...

Not fussed on exclusives, as that gives the retailer carte blanche to charge what they want with over inflated rrps and fake sales. I am also disappointed its not sapphire glass. Even my DKNY watches are sapphire!

May cancel. May wait to see what its like when it turns up.
Do H Samuel accept online returns in their stores?

2 things are important for me on a watch other than accurate timekeeping.

Sapphire Glass
Proper feeling metal strap. Too many watches like this have lightweight, cheap feeling straps. It's not like they are titanium to make them light. Odds on this is a cheap watch anyway.

Be careful. Last watch I ordered from H Samuel turned up with incorrect model instructions, damaged leather strap and scratched face! I took it back for refund, but if you buy this as a present give it a good inspection before wrapping it up!

That's not right. Mine does...

Had my ECO drive for 4 years now. Great watch.

Flimsy strap?

Their "Stiletto" range are, I have one.

Good find OP, already have a similar watch, so have to resist on this one.

It should work under indoor lighting also, at least in a limited capacity.

it says that the watch is exclusive to HSamuel, so basically they just make up any price.
look up the model number on the citizen web site - it doesn't exist, i would avoid, think it looks like a cheap watch with an over-inflated made up RRP

Agreed. the rrp is generally a fantasy price on these sorts of deals, but you are getting a solar powered chronograph from a reputable maker. It's a good price compared to similar spec watches from Citizen, even if it's exclusive to H Samuel.

I'm glad you like your Eco-Drive, but "Citizen and Seiko make best watches"??
Er. No.
The Swiss make the best watches - you seem to have forgotten about brands like Breitling and Omega.
Yes, these Citizens watches are great VFM - no argument, bu they are mass produced in China.

Having said that Heat for this post
