Things are freaking tight around here with wedding plans, honeymoon plans, investing in new business opportunities. So I opted for this relative to GS reasonable price HAQ by Citizen, The Citizen. 38mm,10 thick, +6 seconds per year
, 10 year warranty, eco drive battery.

That is clean and attractive. The quality of the dial components always appear better than they should be for the line.

The energy cell in the Eco Drive is a neato component. Be damned silver oxide battery.

Lovely watch. No wonder where Citizen got the inspiration for it, as it does resemble a Grand Seiko alright.

Hey this Citizen is 4 seconds per year more accurate than GS. Now what should I do with the extra time.

It's the size, too. GS needs to make more 38mm watches. It's the modern dress watch size in my most humble opinion. I've started to look more seriously at HAQ watches, and this will be on the radar in the future for sure. Exquisite!

Yeah I’d love to see more pics of this one as well as your thoughts of the watch versus Grand Seiko.

I can't wait. It's the opposite of the.Bucherer I'm.wearing which is big. I'm really interested in the bracelet, if there is anything I can find fault with in some GS it's the.braceletbracelet though recent high end pieces have micro adjuster.
