This review is from: Citizen Men's CC1076-02E Satellite Wave Air Eco-Drive Watch with Black Band (Watch)I should preface my comments by saying I am an addicted watch collector, and own everything from Swiss made mechanical and automatic/mechanical watches to Japanese Seikos, Casio Oceanus, and Citizen.
I was attracted to Citizen because I own a titanium DLC (diamond like carbon) plated Promaster SST LE I bought a few years back. I have a number of "unplated" titanium watches (from for example Seiko), and these scratch extremely easily due to the soft surface of titanium. The Citizen DLC plating is incredibly hard and scratch resistant (although NOT scratch proof). The plating is very expensive and found only on top of the line Citizen watches. Due to the hardness difference between Ti and DLC, getting the DLC to adhere is quite a technical challenge. But Citizen appears to have mastered it because the DLC on my Promaster has not failed in six or seven years. When I found out the Satellite Wave Air Titanium has the DLC, I had to have one.

Anywhere or anytime.....,
This review is from: Citizen Men's CC1076-02E Satellite Wave Air Eco-Drive Watch with Black Band (Watch)
I love this watch but, you really have to do your homework to figure out how it does what it does. I travel and wanted to have a watch that would set itself in any time zone. It will but, there are a few things(very simple) that you have to do before it will. Good looking and fits great. Yup, two grand for a Citizen and well worth it. This watch is solid. Just hold it up toward the sky and hit the button.....I get great comments all the time, even at spendy watch store. You simply have to wear this to see what i mean. Nice dress watch or out to play this is quality. The band and buckle fit your wrist like an old friend. When you try one on you will see for yourself. Absolutely no regrets on this one....

A Matter of Time,
This review is from: Citizen Men's CC1076-02E Satellite Wave Air Eco-Drive Watch with Black Band (Watch)I have several solar recharge / radio wave watches from Citizen, Seiko and Casio in a variety of styles. You could say I'm a collector. If I ever strike it rich, I'm not flying to Geneva to buy a single expensive Swiss watch. I'm addicted to watches that don't need winding and tell exact time!
I also have this exact same solar recharge / SATELLITE wave watch from Citizen - only with a full titanium band. If it's available on Amazon, I can't find it, though the image is shown above (model CC1055-53E).
The is a BIG watch. And although it's titanium, the reception mechanism makes it somewhat heavy. The links are such that it's difficult to get a good fit on my wrist after repeated returns to the jeweler (a personal friend) - though that will be different for everyone. Due to its weight, it shifts around a lot. Just something to consider if you're buying it online. Btw, I purchased it brand new for A LOT LESS than the Amazon price here AND with a titanium band...
