I see we have alot of Citizen wearers. Why haven't all watch manufacturers started using this technology? My next one will be a G-Shock solar.
Roman, you still needing a watch replacement? Let me know.

I really like my Citizen watch. I'm not sure I'll ever buy a non-solar watch again.

My Formula one is nice and all, but yeah, citizen makes one heck of a watch. They’re my #2 obsession, right behind Spyderco. I never leave the house without a watch and knife.

I am not a fan of large chunky, heavy watches. For the longest time I was purchasing Skagen watches because of their slim profile and light weight. I hope they catch up to the solar movement (pun intended) soon.

I completely understand. They do have slimmer designs that are solar powered, just not the gps and radio functions.
These(40-48mm)aren’t actually that big compared to some other radio/gps ones out there. For example, a g-shock solar atomic is 53mm. Which isn’t a big deal, I just don’t really dig the rubber.

I fell off the G-Shock bandwagon when I got my Hamilton. I don't think I can ever wear anything chunky or rubber again. NATO straps for the win!

I'm jealous of you guys. I have a nickel allergy, so no watch for me. Can't find a full Ti watch that isn't stupid expensive, either.

Oh well.

I've had some pretty decent cheapo Casio watches that had plastic backs. Maybe you can look for a used Ti Citizen or something. My Hamilton is full titanium and it cost way more than I'd ever pay for a watch, it was a gift from my brother. Now that I own it and have wore it for almost 3 years practically non-stop I can understand why though.



Oh.....maybe you should look into NATO straps? They put a strip of nylon between the watch and your wrist. Or maybe one of those wider leather straps like this?

They are long gone, but that Ti Fossil was and still is my favorite watch of all time. I had a jeweler replace the battery for me once, he punched the o-ring and when i went swimming.... dead. I wore it for 6 months without it functioning because I am a creature of habit. Found one used and that is the one I wear now.

A brand to consider is Skagen. Just as xceptnl said, they offer slim, lightweight designs. And a full titanium construction can be had new for around $60-100. They just lack solar charging.

At work it is some flavor of G-Shock, and on the weekend its a solar Citizen diver. Either a Manix 2, or an Endura 4 are in my pocket.
