Citizen Grand Touring Review

A Review of the Citizen Grand Touring Sport The Citizen Grand Touring Sport watch is something that will surprise anyone not familiar with the Japanese brand. Currently, Citizen is most famous with its reliable and techie looking Eco-Drive solar watches. I’m sure you have at least seen their watches in ads on TV or elsewhere. Their flagship Eco-Drive are usually watches with various functions (chronograph, atomic timekeeping, GPS, etc.) and features busy yet cool dials.

Citizen BM8475-26E Review

  Hi All! In this post today, I’m going to write about Citizen BM8475-26E review, a black-orange themed watch that’s also solar powered. The watch has a black matte dial with orange hands and markers that’s just pop up from it. It’s truly is stunning to look at and in my opinion, a great casual/everyday watch.     The solar powered feature also makes it a convenient tool as its owner does not need to change the battery every 1-2 years or so. It’s the perfect combination of automatic and quartz watches. Last but not least, the good 100 m water resistance means the watch is wellRead More →

Citizen Eco-Drive BM8180-03E Review

  Hi guys. Today I’m writing about the Citizen Eco-Drive BM8180-03E review, one of the most affordable Eco-Drive models from the Japanese brand. Citizen’s Eco-Drive is one of the most robust and well-respected solar watch movement right now. But the cost of such cool technology is more expensive than a normal quartz watch. Fortunately, they know there is a good market in low priced watches and this is where the Citizen BM8180-03E watch comes in the picture. The watch is priced at the more affordable sub-$100 price (if you get it from online stores, especially on , as compared to the normal more than $200 priceRead More →

Citizen Nighthawk Watch Review

  Hi guys. Today I’m going to write a review about Citizen Nighthawk watch, a long time favorite for watch lovers.   So what’s the big deal with this Nighthawk watch?   Well, first of all, it’s affordable at around $200-$250 online. And for that price, we’re getting a tried-and-tested Eco-Drive light powered watch (no need to change battery for years!), GMT function, rotary slide rule, a great 200 m water resistance. And have I mentioned that the Nighthawk looks super cool too? The black dial with white markings and red accent just looks astonishing and could be the reason why it’s called Nighthawk (blackRead More →

Citizen Promaster Altichron Review BN5030-06E front

  In this article, I’m going to write about the Citizen Altichron review, specifically the BN5030-06E model. It’s a true sports/outdoor watch with compass and altimeter functions by the Japanese under their Promaster line up. And just like any other Citizen’s watches, the Altichron is also solar powered using their Eco-Drive technology.   A True Sports/Outdoor Watch With Compass And Altimeter The main attraction of the Altichron (aside from its very busy and colorful dial, more on that later on) is in its great technical capability. It has fully functioning compass and altimeter, as well as a robust case that can withstand extreme temperatures fromRead More →

Citizen Ecozilla review

  Hi guys! Today I’m writing about Citizen EcoZilla review – specifically the Eco-Drive BJ8050-08E model, a huge and one of a kind diver’s watch which can even give the mighty aggressive Seiko Monster a run for its money.   But why the EcoZilla name?   Well, as you’ve noticed, the watch is humongous (it’s a freaking 48 mm diameter!) – so I guess the guy who coined this nickname likened it to Godzilla, the Japanese monster. Adds with the Eco-Drive model and you get EcoZilla lol!   The Citizen EcoZilla on hand – just look at that huge 48 mm diameter watch and that aggressive styleRead More →
