Default Citizen Alticron Cirrus

I just picked one of these up, and I must say, it is everything I had hoped for! I had to settle for the metric version, not a biggie with me(multiply times 3). I wanted the Limited Edition, but at the price, decided against it.

This watch is just plain fun! My ONLY gripe with it is the strap keepers(loops). The strap and buckle itself are perfect. The keepers are difficult to move, and the strap is difficult to push through them. I already developed a technique while putting the watch on to combat this(use my middle finger to hold them in place while securing the strap to the buckle).

Compass and altimeter are easy to use, zero out and calibrate. The lume is nice and neat, but doesn't stay lit long. The design, aesthetics of this watch are truly a treasure, in my opinion. If you're thinking about purchasing one, just do it! You won't be disappointed!

The strap keepers on my Promaster Alticron is exactly the opposite in that they will not stay where put and keep slipping off the end of the strap. Looks like by NOW they could get it right!!! Any pix of your version, btw???
