Gear Review – Citizen Eco-Drive Military Watch With Chronograph

I just picked up a new watch. It’s a Citizen Military with chronograph (Model AT0200-05E). The MSRP is $215 but they can be found for almost half of that at several big online sources. The body is stainless steel and is water resistant to 100m. It runs on their Eco-Drive system which charges off of almost any light source. It has a green canvas band but I have a Maratac silicone band on the way from County Comm. I’m looking forward to playing around with it and seeing how well it keeps time (the manual says +/- 30 seconds per month). It is comfortable and has nice weight to it without being overly bulky. The face is easy to read and the hands glow bright when charged up. I’ll post a review of the new band when it comes in and post some followup thoughts on the watch after I’ve had a chance to wear it some more.
