This Citizen has never left my personal top 5 list, ahead of much pricier watches. Just enough bling, balanced dial, and perfect size. Won't be selling this one.

I used to have the black version a few years ago and just recently acquired the panda which is also great. This watch really hits above its price point and in my opinion it is only the mineral crystal which lets it down, a domed sapphire would bring it up to another level and Citizen can do this but it is expensive.

Also the older version looks better than the current model.

A studio photo of my new panda taken today.




This is my black version from a few years back (now sold).

Interesting, did you replace the crystal yourself or send it to Citizen?

Tony
I replaced it. I bought it used and the original crystal was a mess. I also had hoped to find a suitable sapphire replacement. It never worked out, but I managed to pick up a sample watch that had no movement, so I just used that crystal.

'Wonder how many of us would need to sign up to make this a viable project?
I'm not sure, 25-50 perhaps? I would love one.

OK thanks, lucky you to find a sample! Do you have any photos?
