Citizen Eco-Drive Skyhawk A-T JY0010-50E Review

Looking to buy really good wrist watches? I just got a new Citizen Skyhawk A-T and here’s an initial review on some of it’s features:

– Titanium Construction (keeps it light, approx. 12oz)
– Atomic Timekeeping (USA, Europe & Japan)
– Eco Drive Solar Powered
– 2 Alarms, Chronograph, Perpetual Calendar
– World Time in 43 Time Zones
– Back lit Display (for the LCD)

It’s looks great, stands out and is a very light watch given all it’s features. (You’ll have to shell out $200 more for the Titanium version.) Very impressive dials wrt the detail and fine craftsmanship that’s gone in. The amber back-light display is a nice new addition. You’ll never have to adjust the time nor the calendar on the 1st of the month. Time is accurate to the second.

Keep in mind that the Atomic Timekeeping may not work in all areas at all times. Usually at night the Atomic signal is strong and by default the watch checks and set’s the time every night at 2am, 3am and 4am. Now trying to do anything real with the watch (like manually setting the time, the time-zone, resetting it etc.) is challenging, because it will definitely require you to read the manual. But it’s simple enough once you read the instructions.

So far, I love it but I’ve had it only for a couple of days. I would recommend this for someone who’s looking to buy a watch that will last!
