Default I just got my first Citizen

Saw this watch at Costco the other day for $139.99, liked the style and the price, so I just bought it. It's my first Citizen, my first Eco-Drive, and I just realized, my first chronograph. The model number is CA0437-55E It's a black ion plated chronograph. I had never seen it with the blue highlights. It feels great on the wrist and looks great.

Some pics:

Excellent choice! I'm sure you're going to love the Eco-Drive aspect of that watch.

Really liking the blue accents and the texture on that dial!

Congratulations they are superb but I warn you that Eco-Drives are more addictive than crack.

I'm a dyed in the wool Citizen/Miyota guy.
Have a few Citizens. Did you know 80% of all Citizens are now EcoDrives?
Guess EcoDrives have "seen the light" (sorry about the pun).
My fave is my EcoZilla. Surfing for that Citizen with wide racing stripe
dial for under $200.00

Citizen watches are always carefully crafted and come with guaranteed durably.
The Eco drive models are nice too.

A little problem. I've had this watch in pretty heavy rotation for almost two years (I really enjoy wearing it). However, I recently noticed the black ion coating is wearing off on the bottom and outside of the wrist area.

Does anyone have any strap/bracelet recommendations for this wonderful timepiece?

A black, or better yet, black/blue NATO perhaps?

I was thinking that would be a good option, too. Something like this:
