Just in: Citizen CB0190-84E

Post by MKTheVintageBloke » Fri May 14, 2021 2:23 pm

Just got this today:

For now, I've taken it off the original bracelet, which is kind of rattly, and besides, I need to adjust it. So, I've put it on the 22mm tropic from the Dan Henry 1970.

I'm really impressed with the overall finishing of the watch. Top-notch dial finishing, absolutely gorgeous hour markers.

The case is a fingerprint magnet, but with how well-finished and light it is, I really couldn't care less.

The rather heavily recessed date display isn't the nicest feature, but given that the solar cell needs some space, I can understand why it was made that way.

All in all, a great watch.

I'll post a link to the review, once I've written and published it.
