Bought an eco drive in 1997 in Dubai. Titanium bracelet and case,chrono and was for all intensive purposes the perfect watch, lasted ten years until i got bored with it; but still resold for a pretty penny. (Not unlike an original early Fossil chrono for which I got more than I paid for!!) But with modern tech comes volume and loss of quality. New titanium build, newish eco drive tech, and handsome chrono functionality. But these days the watches from Citizen seem to resemble plastic toys with no character. This one looks good initially ,especially with the tan strap , but that's it!! It is the strap that looks good ; otherwise this is just another cheap looking toy!! Maybe they can resurrect their quality like some of the Seiko models. This just seems a waste of money. At least the recent Ingersoll was an automatic in this price point, and for a little more the Tissot quartz chrono a quality timepiece.
