This wouldn't have been my usual cup of tea - the dial is too too busy, the case is too thick and the whole thing weighs a ton - but after a few weeks on the wrist I'm warming to it!
Bought as a gift this looked a little much to wear everyday, but after a week I'd had half a dozen comments both from workmates when dressed up in a suit and from friends in the pub when dressed down with a pair of jeans and a t-shirt.
The truth is, this really is the only watch you could ever need. There are a ridiculous amount of functions (most of which I'll never use!), including TWO alarms, time-zones in dozens of cities across the world, split second chronograph timers and stopwatch and a 'slide rule' bezel which enables the wearer to measure distance over time should he feel so inclined!
The watch features a pretty solid toughened mineral glass which I can personally vouch for in terms of durability. After a couple of clumsy knocks I have to say it doesn't show a mark.
Powered by light through Citizens 'eco-drive' system so that it will never need a battery, it also sets itself via radio waves so it will always be accurate!
Add in the 200m water resistance (about 195 meters deeper than I'll need it certified for!) and this really is an all-in-one watch.
Being an eco-drive, this carries a 5 year guarantee so you know you're buying quality.
The presentation is good too. The box is now buried under my bed, but it comes with all sorts of manuals and a little CD, as well as inner and outer boxes to keep the watch safe.
I'm not sure if this is a watch, or an extension of Batmans utility belt, but either way it's an absolute gem of a gadget and has been an absolute revelation to me being used to a watch that tells the time and not much else!
