About the service:

After a long telephone call with the Citizen service center Europe (Hamburg). All Eco-Drive watches need the accumulator replaced after 10 - 15 years, 10 years recommended. (maybe Citizen will replace the accumulator for free in the free 8th years service of the current Chronomaster line?!)

Seiko: Every three years new Battery, lets say every 3th battery chance new gaskets.

So the main difference is

..................Seiko..................................................................................Citizen.....................

3. year Battery chance local watchmaker (1 hour) 10 €...................Back to Japan ( 3 - 5 months) free
6. year Battery chance local watchmaker (1 hour) 10 €..................................–– 0 ––
9. year National service center (2 - 3 weeks) 50 €..........................Back to Japan ( 3 - 5 months) free

Seiko additional cost in the first 10 years about 70 €......................Citizen no additional cost
Watch in service: 2 - 3 weeks......................................................Watch in service: 6 - 10 months

Yes, Citizen makes the better technology (independent hour hand, hands auto correction, Eco-Drive), but the GS will stay at home ;-)

So for me GS – Christmas is coming :)
