In my quest to find the perfect watch for daily wear, I have long been looking at, and recently purchased a watch with Citizen’s Eco-Drive movement. I wanted a chronograph but without the complexity of my Seiko Perpetual. I decided on the Citizen Chandler CA0621-05L as shown here.
So far, I love the watch. It meets all of my prescribed needs for a daily watch: It has a nice looking, easy-to-read display, a date complication, lume in the hands and dial, and the chronograph function. Because of the ec-drive movement, I am not concerned about accuracy as some of my automatics have, and I won’t need to be concerned over an untimely discharged battery, as the solar charged battery is not likely to lose it’s oomph for at least 10 years. It wasn’t expensive, so I don’t mind letting it getting a few bumps during the working hours, or even a work call during a church or community event.
All in all I am so far satisfied with this purchase, and although not particularly eye-catching, it does it’s job and I am pleased.
