Nice piece, Gary!

I have my first Citizen on the way, an Eco-Drive Diver (per photo, credit to Burnett NL on Flickr, great shot) after a couple of Seikos and my Invicta that started it all.

Never really dug the resin strap so I've got a mesh band to fit... more photos to come. 16506168477_4d27b1e127_b.jpg

Currently I own 4 Citizen EcoDrives.
Latest pickup from the "Bay" was the CA0467.
With orange perpendicular racing stripe on dial.
Its a tie for me on which group of watches I
like. Citizen. Seiko or Deep Blue.
Kinda gravitated to solar watches so DB failing
in that. 2 of my DB's have Miyota engines the
other a Seiko VX43. All accurate to a fault.

As promised. Took delivery of my BN0150-10E today and wasted no time giving it some sun.

Perhaps slightly smaller on the wrist than I anticipated, but still a good size. A little smaller overall than my orange baby monster (SRP483) I think.

I've had a thing against resin/rubber straps since having one on an analogue/digital Promaster quartz about 20 years ago... strap survived for a while before fatiguing and breaking in a rather inconvenient fashion. I'm sure that being an unsympathetic and chemical-oozing teenager at the time had nothing to do with it...

So, changed over to a "Taurus" 20mm mesh band after work. This band was originally destined for service on a SKA723 Kinetic for an unusual combination, but this will do for now.

Just a few loose and on-wrist before and afters so far, as well as the obligatory lume shot. Enjoy! IMG_20180112_185604~01.jpg IMG_20180112_151404~01.jpg IMG_20180112_191239~01.jpg IMG_20180112_191711~01.jpg IMG_20180112_191931~01.jpg

BTW I picked up that desired Eco Drive Citizen. The CA0467.
In Sun. rotation. Won a bid for it on the Bay. Hi bidder I gather.
Sure lovin that vertical racing stripe on dial. Even tho it looks
like knockoff of the Tag recently sold at auction for 1 bezillion
bucks!!!!
They have their priorities, I have mine. I'm a quantity over
quality guy every time. And this shows it.
