Default Citizen Eco-Drive Promaster NightHawk Pilot BJ7010-59E

Authored by: sbesa77

Kind of late to the party on this one,but I feel compelled to share a bit about this watch. My first Citizenand I am definitely inspired to look at some more.

The BJ7010-59E is the Asian/European version of the nighthawk which Ilike a bit better than the US version because of the subtle differencesin the dial and the raised caseback (US version is etched).

Great watch for the money. Solid, heavy, and feels well put together.The bracelet is solid and fairly well made, mine has some sharp edgesand is a bit stiff - a good rub down and oiling will probably help withthis.

Size feels perfect for me ( my wrist is about 7"). Dial is crisp, thecontrast of the white/silver/red is sharp looking and easy to read -which is very nice especially considering there is a ton of informationon the dial. Crystal is clear and although there is no anti-reflectivecoating I haven't found glare to be a problem. I think some badlighting with my photos made the crystal seem a bit cloudy/hazy - inreal life it seems much clearer.

Lume is decent. My only, only knock is that the gmt function isdesignated by two smaller hands with "jet" silhouette - these can getobscured at certain times of the day by the larger hour and minutehands making the 2nd time zone hard to read. Other than that, the watchis awesome and worth every penny. [img]

Truly a beauty had one myself. I wonder if the titanium version is available somewhere after all these years.

Thatís alright, pip! Youíre not the culprit this time -- it was jbsf3.

Anyway, I happen to be a big fan of thread necromancy.
Bring on the black magic!

One of my favorite citizens. Would’ve been nice if they used bigger, longer or something colorful for the gmt hands so it’s easier to read

I am surprised to read some consider them old watches. They can still be found new here and there.

Welcome to the forum apwinter. Congrats on the new acquisition. Kenny had one for sale just the other night. Whom ever snagged that one got a marvelous watch from a great guy. Other than the GMT hand, I really can't think of a real weakness if you have the wrist to mount it on. Welcome and congrats again !
