Citizen Eco-Drive Promaster Land GMT Mens Watch BJ7081-51E - Review by Gary J. Seed from United Kingdom
Firstly I have to say that I have a thing for Citizen Eco-Drives at the moment I have eight in my rotation including the GMT that I am about to review.
(Reviewed on 8/22/2015)
I have 1 Dress 4 Divers 1 Chronograph 1 Skyhawk and last but certainly not least I have a stunning GMT.
Before I purchased the GMT I had one on the top of my wanted list for quite some time so my search started on Ebay, I came across this model Citizen Eco-Drive Promaster Land GMT BJ7081-51E in the Duty Free Island Shop. This is where my search ended as I had dealt with this seller before when I purchased my Eco-Zilla back in 2013 and the service was absolutely outstanding so I had no qualms whatsoever about the GMT purchase.
About the sale; the communication was superb as I was kept informed each and every step of the way and was able to track my watch which was quite interesting in itself.
The watch took a week to arrive from Hong Kong to the UK, I think it was sent on it's own personal drone to arrive so quickly.
I opted for mine to be sent in a pouch as I knew from previous experience it would be very securely packaged and would arrive in perfect condition, I was not disappointed.
Now the best bit the watch itself;
For the price point I can not fault this watch at all, the links on the SS bracelet are all solid, by this I mean they are not hollow or folded/pressed, the only downside to the bracelet are the hollow end links I would have paid more for solid end links. But having said that it is a lot better than I expected for the money, this is by no means a deal breaker for me as I like to swap and change my straps/bracelets. I did actually change the bracelet straight away for a canvas and leather strap, then I put it back on its original bracelet as I needed the strap for another watch and I have to say I quite like it on its bracelet.
The actual watch itself;
The watch is superbly finished even with the strap off I can not find one singe defect and I am very critical, I love the contrast of brushed and polished stainless steel together it is stunning.
This model has an internal bezel that has it's own crown @ 2PM, the crown is an absolute joy to use as it is ultra smooth in both directions. The other crown is at 4PM and is a screw down crown this crown for setting the time/date is also very slick in it's operation it operates freely and securely but I have now come to expect this from Citizen. If I was being very picky I would have liked to have both crowns with a Pro-Master logo, not a big issue though.
The movable bezel lines up perfectly with the watches chapter ring I love this kind of attention to detail, this detail is followed with the second hand striking the markers with absolute precision.
The hands are what I would class as semi skeleton and the lume is bright and also lasts for hours, the same goes for the markers. One detail that I really like is the GMT hand is only lumed at the tip this is so you can easily distinguish it from the other hands, but in the dark it looks like it is floating "brilliant"
The date window is only small but surprisingly easy to read and made clear by highlighting it in white with a discreet red marker.
The size of this watch may put some people off at 49mm but my wrist at 7.5 inches wears it very well but the larger watch is very much my preference.
So to summarise, a superb watch at a great price from a trusted and professional company, I am very happy.
The brand Citizen has been synonymous throughout the years with high quality, reliable, well-crafted, stunningly luxurious watches. Since 1930, Citizen has given us classic designs as well as innovative techniques that is constantly evolving. They have pioneered in groundbreaking watch technology which they continue to improve upon, year after year. Perhaps the most important breakthrough was the development of solar powered watches, which they launched and named as Eco-Drive. Using electrical power converted from virtually any light source (artificial or natural) to charge and power the watch.
Citizen continues to be one of the leading watch manufacturers in the world. They persist on expanding their own ideas on innovation thus improving function, style and durability.
