This is a very good watch. I have the Blue Angel and the Black Skyhawk models. Both titanium. I like it for all the reasons that you can read in the other reviews:
- You do not have to change the battery
- You can easily synchronize it and I did it in Canada and in Europe without any problem. As long as you are in the good area covered by the antenna. Which is quite large actually. Of course you need to follow the Citizen recommendations and not to wear the watch during the night.
- the titanium is a huge advantage. It is light and when you have tasted it, it is quite difficult to wear again an heavy stainless steel watch.
- I travel quite often oversea and it is so simple to have and to change the time zone. You can do it in 3 seconds and being sure that the time is still perfect. That is the only watch I know that can do that.
- you have always the right time wherever you are.
- there are plenty of features and very easy to use (timer, chronograph, ...)
- the quality is very good and the price ($590 when I bought it), compare with what you get is very cheap.

But like everybody is perfect there are a few drawbacks:
- you need to remove the watch if you want to change something. I tried several times and when wearing the watch you can do nothing practically.
- the display is very small and that is not so easy to see.
- you cannot see the display if the watch is not correctly positioned. It is not a problem when you wear the watch. Only when you have it removed and look at the watch from the top. When you see that the first time you could believe that there is an issue with your watch. Which is not!
- The calendar is the world calendar, not the local calendar.

Update:

As I indicated in my first review, I had sent back the watch to Amazon for refound, and I received the money...fine Amazon!
In the meantime I purhased the same watch again (different source) and my assumption became confirmed: my first watch was pre-used and most probably the reason why it was sent back previously: it was even defective!!!...bad Amazon!

The new watch syncronises perfectly everywhere (in Canada I tried in Toronto and Bruce areas, in Europe in Austria, Hungary and Germany), no problem at all!!! All my other comments are still valid.

The watch is with it's 15 mm slightly too thick. I hit it few times because of this into cupboards, doors, and the bezel got some slight damages / scratches (glas still undamaged).

All in all I like it very much, my favourite for travelling!

4 stars only because of Amazon shipping out reurned items without checking whether they are defective / weared or not!!!

Old review:

The watch itself is still one of my favourites because of it's look, but I may need to buy it somewhere else...

New watch old watch:
I've been a satisfied Amazon (EU, US) customer for long time.This was here (Amazon Canada) my second purchase and my first big disappointment. The watch came in a disastrously looking Citizen outer box (dirty like signs of some scratched-off food rests or glue, was torn on all sides may be due to several forced openings, was looking old, etc.).

The watch itself was without any usual protecting plastic foil (contrary to how it was with my recently purchased Seiko from Amazon.co.uk), and was scratched on several places (crown, band - clearly visible). Apparently a piece used as a display in a shop or a return item from one (or more) customers?
