I'm really glad I didn't sell this when I was broke.

Last year I was dead broke due to a back injury and almost sold this for food money. But the guy wanted a really low price so I didn't bother.

But I'm much better now and I'm enjoying this watch again.

It's a big 43mm chonkster (on my 6.5" wrist anyways) but it's pretty comfy with a bottom side that is mostly flat and just a slight angle at the edges. 50mm lug to lug and around 70g without strap.

It's technically "too big" for me but I kinda love huge watches (if they are comfy).

And it's pretty visually interesting to me. Not boring. Nice dial that is raised up from the subdials. And that top layer is slightly see through which adds depth to the face of the watch.

And it's taken a fair bit of abuse over the past couple years. Earlier this week I left it out to soak up sun and I accidentally flung it half way across the room onto the hard tile floor.

It was only 125 bucks on sale down from 150 so I'm not too worried about it. And I like that about a watch. For me it's a tool to be enjoyed rather than be worried about.

I kinda wish it had the pushers on the opposite side because they poke me a bit sometimes.

Mediocre lume which also wasn't applied properly on my unit. One of the hands is less bright than the other.

I mostly wear my G Shock but this is a really nice change once in a while. Got it on a nice FKM rubber strap. And in the winter I often prefer a nice fabric strap instead.

I would just say if you want to get this model please consider choosing the version without leather because that's a very cruel industry and much of it is mislabeled cat and dog skin from China.

Someday I might want a watch like this in titanium but only if I find a cheap one.

I have this titanium one but I'm not loving the small size recently for whatever reason.

I'd be happy to see your budget titanium watches if you have a recommendation.

Glad to hear your personal situation is in the past...and bonus you kept your watch!

Thanks 馃槉

Odd that you wear your watch on the other side of the wrist bone, closer to your hand. That would drive me nuts. Also why you get interference from time to time and cut off G-Shock nubs. 馃槀

Just a thought.

Curious, who do you wear your watch that way?

Really hot summers here in the Israel. If I swear it fitted higher on the wrist it gets sweaty and gross pretty much instantly.

It's completely horrible with some watches and straps. But I found a few options that work well. Pretty much only with some rubber straps because everything else is either too loosey goosey or has very painful pointy bits and prevents wrist motion (most metal bracelets).

Another issue is because of the heat my wrist changes size a lot so if I wear it high up it gets really tight during the day and really lose at night (and then slides down).

In the winter I often wear it the way that is considered "properly". See the last pic in the post above. But because I'm so used to wearing them loose in the summer I don't always go back in the winter.

I'm happy to hear you're better! 6.5inch wrist here too which scares me away from citizen... although I have great admiration.

Thanks man.

I think they have some nice designs but most are more than I'm happy to spend on a watch. Casio is more my price range and even then I don't buy many.
