Just picked up a Citizen Skyhawk AT and this baby is solid. Feels about as heavy as the Seiko Monster. Big for me at 45mm not including the crown, but it wears nice. Lots of details on the dial and the chrome trimmed subdials are nice. Feature wise it has just about everything you could ever need...atomic/solar, chrono, timer, 2 alarms, world timer, backlit LCD, 3 time zone display. I thought I'd never get a watch with a slide rule as I thought they were silly. I still think they are silly, but on this model it works well with the design. I think Citizen succeeded in making this watch feel more like and instrument than a time piece. Bracelet is very nice with lots of little details. Looks more Swiss to me than Japanese. I don't think I'll need another multi-function quartz. At least until I can afford one of those sweet JDM Attesa models.

sir nhoj, how much did u get it for? going to singapore this week, will be watch hunting again, thanks ;)
Oh, I don't actually pay for my watches. They just sorta wind up in my pocket as I walk out the door. Just kidding. I happened to catch a sale on amazon for the cheapest gray market price seen on ebay except it comes with the Citizen warranty.

Great watch. I owned the titanium version and it was fantastic....so fantastic in fact that I became scared to wear it anywhere except for around the house, so I flipped it. :(

Nothing wrong with the watch of course....it was plenty rugged....I'm just a clumsy sod and knew in the long run it wouldn't fit with my wearing habits. But I still think about that sucker...oh yes, the dial I once thought overly busy soon hypnotized me with its charms.

Welcome to the AT club!

I like 'em so much I got 2.... The steel and the Ti version. (Actually I got 2 because they they both came at a GREAT deal at a pawn shop)



Got the steel back on it's bracelet now, after buying a couple links from Citizen....




But have been favoring the ti version lately for it's awesome lightness...

Here is its JDM cousin, the Citizen Attesa ATV53-3022:







For a few months, I used to have a Skyhawk AT (Check my video review in the reviews section) and I can attest to the goodness of these watches. These are some of Citizens finest timepieces currently being made. :)

I hope it's the european version? I mean with sapphire?
Nope. He got the US version in SS with mineral crystal Model # JY0000-53E.

For another $80-$100 he can send the watch back to COA in California and have them install the OEM sapphire crystal, do a pressure test all while preserving the 5 year warranty. Still much cheaper than sourcing the Asian/Japan market version of this watch at a considerable higher cost.

John:

That's an excellent choice, wear it in good health!

It appears to be VERY solid, what's the gram weight on it?

All around beautiful choice!

Angelis ;D
