I haven't bought this watch for myself, but even handling it for a few moments - I can tell that the quality is definitely there. Despite it lacking some of the finer details you might expect on a more pricey watch, it still has a refined look and feel.
The case, although fully polished, looks and feels pleasing with raised facets on the sides.
The crown, although not signed, is easy to grip and operate, with a satisfying winding action.
The bracelet, despite having hollow end links, has solid and premium feel with the end links not wiggling in their places at all, unlike some Seikos that cost twice as much.
Overall, I really love how Citizen has chosen to sacrifice some features instead of sacrificing quality on this watch. Everything you do have on the watch is really very well done. Everything you don't have - you don't even miss!
I ordered the watch to a freight forwarder address and had no issues with the delivery.
Thank you for stocking these amazing watches.
