Titanium Citizen BM8560

Has anyone tried out one of these Titanium watches from Citizen? Comes on a leather or metal bracelet.

I've had the black dial/bracelet for a year or so. Nice light watch. Big fan of Citizens Duratect titanium process.

I had the cream dial version on the bracelet and think you made the right choice with the strap. I’m a bit of a titanium nut and that might have blinded me, but I find Citizen’s pin and collar system quite aggravating. 
I didn’t keep mine for very long and it was the watch that made me admit that cream and white dials aren’t for me. Good video I think it’s a good watch just wasn’t for me. 

·

I only own one Citizen Promaster Diver Titanium.  The movement is solid, the fit and finish is great. Titanium is addictive!

Citizen is making some very nice pieces in a more affordable range. I dont have any of there titanium models but a couple of the 'eco drive' models.

Hey matt84.  thanks for watching the video. I don’t have many pin and collar bracelets, they  definitely require a little more concentration when sizing the strap. I’m always concerned about the possibility of losing that small collar.

Hey time junkie. I am kind of on the fence about titanium versus stainless steel. It’s a lighter weight but often times I have a  Leather strap instead of metal bracelet. What is it about the titanium you like so much?

Yep I’ve actually lost one of those collars with another Citizen and it’s annoying.

Hi ls9009. I couldn’t agree with you more. I’m finding more and more Citizen watches lately that are really appealing to me and are very affordable.

Most of my pieces are a bit pricier (is tha a word LOL) but I have a few I guess would be called beater watches. I just picked up (for the third time) a Seiko SKX. I keep selling or giving them away. They really are a decent watch for the under $500 price range.. The eco Citizen's I have are excellent watches..just pick it up and wear it. Keep up the good work.

It's super light. The cliche about forgetting you have a watch on is true. Titanium also feels cooler in the summer. The watch I sent a pic of is bulky. You don't feel heft when wearing it. I have a MM300 on today and it's a wrist burger. Without zooming down that rabbit hole,  sometimes I enjoy the weight of steel on wrist: part of why we collect. I digress,  Titanium is light, weight gives you options to wear a bigger piece more frequently because it's lighter . Also, Titanium can take on many looks depending on the finish. The picture below is of a Snowflake I used to own. That watch will come back to the collection (or some GS Titanium Spring Drive variation) The finish looks like high polish stainless steel. Of course Zaratsu finish is very next level. Even the MM300 I have on today has Zaratsu finish on stainless. The Titanium wears very well even polished. The alloy is super tough. Point being - any finish created in Titanium tends to hold its look and resist scratches. No metal is impervious to scratches. The watch you are looking at is exciting.  Titanium Echo-Drive from a brand that knows Titanium well. Echo-Drive is incredible and accurate. Only Cartier has adopted some version of solar power in luxury brands. You now see Citizen moving into higher price categories because they have tech, fit and finish,  and have made Titanium pieces for a long time. You are looking at a super solid daily wear. I hope my ramble helped 😃

I really like the black dial version of this watch. It would be an almost perfect everyday watch for me.

Hey Ls9009. Nice looking watch  although the cyclops eye is not my thing. It reminds me of my  citizen series 8 which I just recently got. I’m in love with that watch.
