Citizen Corso Review

My wife bought me this watch for Xmas last year. I am not a watch aficionado by any stretch of the imagination.  For me, a watch must perform its main function and that is to show the time at one glance.  I personally don't need the "bling effect".  This watch is under $250 and feels very nice on my small wrist.  Feels and looks more expensive than it really is.  I don't wear it as my daily...those are left to my G Shocks.  I usually prefer a two tone metal watch band .  I do like that it is an Eco Drive solar cell that will supposedly last for at least 10 years.  Citizen craftsmanship IMO is up there with a Seiko.  Citizen watches offer great bang for the buck.  I want to wear the watch....not have the watch wear me. There are a number of different styles in the Corsa line of watches.  The fit, finish and quality that goes into this watch is top notch.  The weight on your wrist is perfect.  If I'm going out to dinner with family or friends, this is the watch that I will wear.  Citizen has been around for over 100 years and their quality in workmanship is one of the reasons why.  I am currently looking through Citizen models that are  a diver type for a daily wear watch.  I will be looking for a sporty Citizen watch to gift to my two sons for Christmas this year , as their first watches.  Like a first kiss, everyone remembers their first watch. Citizen watches are an excellent choice if you prioritize value and function for a daily wear watch.  They require minimal maintenance and the lubrication they use for the movement won't dry out or harden for almost 20 years (according to Citizen).

Citizen make great watches, and Eco-Drive makes watches effortless to wear and enjoy. 

I wore Eco-Drive watches daily for more than a decade before moving into mechanical watches. I now find myself looking at Eco-Drive watches again, they are just dependable.
