Client Evaluations

Sweet watch, I've been wearing mine for four months.
I am an Environmental Engineering Student and I also at the moment personal an Omega Speedmaster ($2100 graduation gift long ago) and a Titanium Pro-Trek Casio Triple Sensor Watch (Compass, Altimeter Temperature $295.00) that I utilised for my previous job as an outdoors wilderness instructor.
Each those watches are extreme (the Casio becoming too rugged, huge and bulky the Omega being extremely freaking high-priced) for everyday use and wanted a thing that suited my keen personality, short budget and modern day taste.
I never liked anything in terms of jewelry or watches from department stores or malls, but when I walked into MACY's in the course of Christmas shopping last december at the neighborhood mall I saw these Eco-Drive watches for the very first time.
It has at all times been my opinion that Citizen makes particularly old fashioned timepieces, however the Nighthawk Eco-Drive is really distinctive and far much more classy than any other Citizen watch on the shelf. Some of the other newer Eco-Drive watches also look edgy and fresher. But the nighthawk captures a boldness with it is appearancethat is especially timeless. Needless to say, I tried it on and was sold.
The capabilities are incredible, apart from all the other "timekeeping-based and solar powered-based attributes you can read about everywhere else on the internet, the Nighthawk also has a multi-functional Slide Rule. This is not really praised or mentioned anyplace else so I will tell you what it is, what it does and why it tends to make owning this watch really cool!
With the slide rule you can calculate your car's fuel consumption, typical speed/velocity and the time you will arrive at your destination, you can also multiply and divide numbers, calculate ratio's into percentages, integers and decimals, covert liters to gallons, pounds to kilograms as well as other metric conversions. The slide rule also performs a couple of a great deal more complex calculations that involve airplanes and nautical vessels that are beyond my understanding.
At any rate, these calculations can be done by just rotating the NightHawk's bezel and matching certain arrows at specific points along the dial. (If you do not believe me, you can download the Nighhawk's PDF manual and read up on it for yourself.)
In reality, it is much easier than utilizing a calculator and clears up the significant mystery of what people today utilised ahead of computers and electronic calculators had been invented they implemented the "Slide Rule".
Being a grad student, I've read about the slide rules in a range of classes but I by no means thought that I would own one on my next watch. I also would have under no circumstances guessed that the slide rule is so efficient and simpler to use than the graphics calculators we use in school.
The only negatives cocerning the Slide Rule feature on the NightHawk are the numbers on the slide rule dial are modest and angled inwards so that they are tricky to read with out tilting the watch around to get a excellent view of the numbers. Also the slide rule only approximates and produces entire numbers for some of the a lot more advanced calculations.
Overall, I discovered that the beneficial geek-features, outdoorsman durability, everyday comfort and eco-friendliness to be well synthesized in the classy steel body of the Nighthawk Eco-Drive.

This is the initial Citizen brand watch I've ever bought, and so far, it is as fine or superior superior than a great deal more pricey TAGs I've owned. About the only factor missing (aside from a stopwatch, as noted earlier - but that is debatable if you're not a severe aviator) is a sapphire crystal, which would most likely prevent scratches a tiny superior than the standard mineral crystal. For this value, although, I'm not complaining.
I like the layout, the general look and a thing else no one mentioned - the band clasp is a really intelligent design. Not only does it have some thing comparable to the Rolex "Flip-Lock" clasp, but the main clasp has what can perfect be described as a squeeze lock, which must be pressed together from the sides of the band to release it from the wrist. This issue is not coming off accidentally.
I got the stainless version, but there is a titanium a single accessible as nicely as an all-black version. The all black version looked kinda low cost and the titanium was even more funds, so stainless was the 1 I chose. Even although I am not a pilot, the slide rule is functional (perhaps even helpful, in some scenarios) and the instructions for it are effortlessly understood. All that and a 5 year warranty. And I normally equated Citizen with cheaper-produced watches - I stand corrected. No regrets.
