Watch Review: Citizen Men's Quartz Stainless Steel Watch with Day/Date

As the Covid crisis stretches on and on, my opportunity to wear watches to work and other locations has declined. Yet, a few nice watches have still come my way.  For example, I chose this Citizen Stainless Steel watch to commemorate my fifth anniversary with my employer.  It has a cool silver-on-silver look that I've always found appealing.


The watch is nicely proportioned for a dress watch.  It has a case this just 8mm thick and a 38mm dial. It makes for an attractive watch that fits nicely under the cuffs of a dress shirt.  The silver-on-silver just looks competent and professional.  The watch is rated as water resistant to 50 meters or 165 feet.  So, it can bang around with most casual watches.

One aspect of this watch that isn't apparent from the Amazon description is that the bracelet achieves a two-tone affect by alternating flat brushed metal tone on the outside and an inner strip of highly polished metal.

This Citizen watch features a small but readable day and date window.

The etched clasp (shown above) is a nice touch and gives this watch a nicely finished look.  The 38mm dial diameter looks a little small on the wrist compared to some more casual watches.

Overall, it's nice to have a decent classic watch or two in your collection.  This Citizen Stainless Steel Watch with Day & Date is perfect for almost any occasion.

[Update:  It's getting hard to find classic Citizen watches like this anymore.  However, I did find one that comes close here on Amazon.]
