The First and the Last - Review by from Ireland

Greetings dear reader,

The title of this review sounds a bit strange and pompous, right? “The First and the Last” ... wristwatch. Crazy.

The reason for this strange title is that it is the truth – the CITIZEN’s “Light in Black” is the first watch I bought personally for myself, and I really hope it will be the last wristwatch I’ll ever use. (No, I am not a teenager, I’m 48 now, and my lifelong reluctance to buy a wristwatch for me, is probably based on the fact that my First Watch was a gift from an ex-girlfriend, when I was much, much younger... You get the idea.)

I’ve shared this personal story to make you understand why I spend so much time researching, and searching for the perfect watch. And “Light in Black” is perfect, in my humble opinion.

It is a work of art. When I opened the parcel and saw it in real life, I understood why all CITIZEN’s wristwatches made from titanium – both the body and the band with Duratect® technology – are limited editions. It is simply a work of art. The word “beautiful” is pale. You must see the watch with your own eyes, pictures are not good enough.

And this watch has everything I was looking for:

1. Radio synchronisation with the reference atomic clock in Mainflingen, Germany.
My house is located exactly 1215 km West-NW from the radio transmitter, and I was happy to discover that the watch received the radio time-signal even during the day – when the propagation of the long radio waves is not good.

2. Perpetual calendar, so during my remaining stay on this planet I am not going to babysit neither the dates, nor the leap years. (Not to mention the useless “summer-time” nonsense, which will be abolished globally in the near future.)

3. Solar powered – never change a battery.
When the watch arrived, it was at the 50% power level, and it charged itself to the 75% mark in less than 30 minutes exposure to direct, strong, summer sunlight. But afterwards I didn’t expose it intentionally to direct sunlight, because I know very well that heat is not good for the rechargeable batteries.

4. Titanium body, base, and band – with the beautiful Duratect® treatment. The watch weights exactly 79 grams, after I shortened the band with two units.
(By the way, all you need to adjust the band length is: flat pliers, paperclip-suitably bent at 90 degrees, wooden plank with 3mm hole, small hammer, and a lot of love for the watch. The band units have arrows, indicating the direction of the pin removal/insertion.)

As for the delivery time, the Dutyfree Island Shop did some magic – the watch arrived in 7-workdays time! To me this is a new world record. Usually the merchandise I receive from China/Hong Kong needs between 15 and 45 days travelling time. I made some calculations for fun, using Google Earth. If the watch was travelling 8 hours per day, following a direct line from the center of Hong Kong to my front door – it was flying with exactly 187.5 km/h. :-D

Thank you Dutyfree Island Shop for the swift service! You can add one more satisfied customer to your long list.
