I had seen elsewhere that the Citizen date cuts over crisply at exactly midnight. The Seiko casually rolls over several minutes later.

Most people don't care but to me the precision and attention to detail are compelling.

Ti + Duratect + perpetual calendar are a plus too. Newer models are eco-drive with a PR indicated.

Interesting - that looks nice but like the GS, wheres the lume ? - all I need is one with a black dial and black date wheel and lume ! and I might have to start saving! Is there such a beast ? I can do my own research but if you happen to know GlennO ?...
What model is that? I'd love to see one in titanium. But I do like the nicer bracelet with the polished edges on the center link..

Clearly the Citizen is the winner.

With all that being said , buy both , I did.



Very thorough.

My formula: Citizen looks better, is cheaper and that's the one I like anyway.

Winner: Citizen
