Just got the Citizen AW1430-86E from Amazon. Couldn't find any pics for it other than the ones that look more like concept art, except for this YouTube video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=96hPhkpdF6A. Thought maybe a thread for it might be nice in case anyone else is interested in it.

So here are my amateur photography pics!
* note that the morning sun through the window is adding the gold tone to the hands and other what should be stainless silver elements.

Just an update on the bracelet. Looks great. Slightly tinny jingle sometimes, but not a lot. However, still crap bracelet. After taking and posting the photos this morning, I worked about 7 hours or so on the computer. The finish on the bracelet links that came in contact with my desktop are now all marred up.

C'mon, Citizen. I have twenty year old Oneida stainless steel flatware that is less scratched up than this. Did you look for the cheapest grade of stainless you could find?

I had wondered why they hadn't at least lumed the numbers. It would make the lume even more functional.
