I've been eyeing this watch for a while and when the price dropped to 250, I had to jump on it (with the wife's permission of course).

Question for the group. I've read the leather strap is bad. I think the lug dimension 23mm and I am allergic to leather. Has anyone changed out the band on this watch?



Thanks

Congrats! I love that watch! I almost picked on up in Nassau while on vacation. It just wasn't discounted enough. I really love all the Blue Angels models!

When I tried it on the band was quite comfortable, but if you're allergic then by all means change it. I haven't changed a band on this watch, obviously as I don't own it, but it is a simple spring bar so should be easy to do.

Great looking Citizen. I think there's a OEM Stainless Steel bracelet that fits this one

EDIT: Here it is

I'll have to check on that. I thought I read somewhere that the bracelet won't fit this one.

Should be here by the middle of next week. I'm super stoked. Love the radio control and the sapphire crystal!

Some of the citizen models that come on strap or bracelet are configured differently as far as lug holes, so a bracelet won't fit a strap model.

I ran into a vice versa problem with a Citizen Signature Grand Touring watch on bracelet, the lug holes were to close to the case for a strap.

That's what I'm afraid of. Thinking of an isofrane, mesh or something exotic like shark.

Nice piece though, regardless of which strap!
Enjoy

Do you think this works? Or is it too much yellow? Any feedback on strapcode?

Great thing about that type of strap is they're inexpensive, so you can buy several versions and see what color combinations you like in the flesh. Strap Code is the real deal. I've bought from them many times with no issues

Killer watch! You're going to love it!

If I were you, I'd have fun mixing it up with different NATO straps.

Post pics and keep up posted!!!!
