Ask Gonzo about Watches (XXXVIII) – Is Citizen a good choice?
Q. Dear Gonzo,
It’s interestingly I unearthed Creation watches and your presents and replies on different questions by the perusers of the Mad about Watches blog. While this may outrage you that regardless of your enlightening exhortation and proposals, your tone in some cases shows up very unforgiving however by and by, I likewise discovered them very hilarious and engaging. Presently, don’t be insulted that I called it silly; I say it with full esteem of your profundity of information in the areas of horology. I expect that you’ll answer my question as well – regardless of whether you think that its over the top – and manage me en route towards my first, fairly expensive purchase.
That’s to say, it’s been a year or so I’m looking at a Citizen to enhance my wrist however up until this point, the ones I enjoyed are either past my financial plan or excessively insipid for my taste until I ran over the Citizen Eco-Drive Chronograph Tachymeter . I like the looks; the costs additionally fit me fine yet advise me in the event that they are on par with say, the SkyHawk or the Navihawk ? It is safe to say that they will be as durable and solid like those two? Furthermore, would they say they will be as precise and solid?
A: Hold on briefly, my dear companion; do you think a brand like Citizen is out there to play sham with its adorers around the world? Nay; and that is the reason I’m getting dicey that you didn’t outline your inquiry right. It ought to be all things being equal – IMHO – about how it varies from different names that you raised, aside from their value focuses. Or then again, what precisely does the in fact slanted Citizen watches bring to the table at this cost point.
The watches you have referenced are probably the most actually progressed pieces with a feline’s life saver! I say this from individual experience. Each Citizen piece is made incredibly well at their particular costs; it doesn’t make any difference in the event that it is for the expert, for the swashbuckler or the ordinary city fellow and a similar time, they are generally dead precise, regardless of whether we consider the radio-controlled or their GPS watches . Be that as it may, you can blame them on a solitary point – They don’t exactly have a similar allure as some of their mechanical watches . In any case, then again, the astute electronic move offers you much more than mechanicals which are in every case great to wear in the midst of the groups of friends however not when you are out in the wild or in the wild ocean; in outrageous cold or warmth or drifting high in the sky. It’s an easy decision that doesn’t need a notice, however given I was asked something similarly inept as this reference; I figured I was unable to have away without bringing the subject up.
No hard emotions however; if it’s not too much trouble, proceed with your choice!
