A pilot's watch for the masses
Member Name: _Eskimo_
Advantages: looks great, works well, it's a watch?
This watch comes in either silver or black and has a relatively small face, which looks great on those of us with smaller wrists than others!
At the end of the day, this is a watch, like any other it tells the time in a billion time zones, has three different alarms (presumably in case you fall asleep after the first two again) and can be a stopwatch or timer.
What sets this apart from others is the Eco-Drive function, the battery will never have to be replaced thanks to the solar pannels and motion energy capture function. It's a watch for those who want to be seen to be helping out the environment yet stay stylish at the same time.
The watch also seems to be very popular in the pilot community, not 2 weeks ago i came across an F16 pilot who used it also. Presumably this is because of the Tachymeter function of the watch which can do anything from simple maths to calculating how much fuel to use on a sortie. You might be thinking 'why do I need this function on my watch? I'm not a pilot!'.
Well... I don't condone in any way the use of this watch to get women but it would certainly aid you if you wanted to be a 'bar pilot' for the night.
The face is very good at preventing scratches and citizen watches seem to have the quality and finish of much more expensive brands. Even the clasp is of a good quality.
All in all a good watch, i got mine second hand and wear it both for work and dinner, the quality is good but sometimes I feel like it could be a bit thinner.
Summary: Great for those who fly or those who don't!
