[Sears] Sears - Citizen Eco-Drive watches $ 99.99. Regular $ 250.00 , Dec 7 - 9, 2012 ONLY

This weeks flyers shows the model I saw in the store a few days ago but I had just bought the Casio Edifice ones that were sale at Costco so I didn't bite but this was actually quite nice. There were mens and women versions.

The stores may have more styles . Flyers doesn't mention which models , just states Citizen Eco-drive watches, regulare $ 250.00, Sale $ 99.88

Webcode on the flyer shows W-0421001 but it didn't show up on the search.

I have the exact same one (mens). Been working flawlessly for 8 years. Waterproof to 3m I believe. Maybe it is lower end but I have no clue what the higher end ones offer that make them worth more.

They may look better, have chronos or date, better accuracy.

Sure if you are just looking for a watch that displays time and nothing else, the lower end ones are fine.

Looks is subjective - I like it because of the simplistic layout.
Date could be useful. What's chronos?
I think a $5 watch is accurate enough for 99.9% of users. Plus it gets manually "calibrated" twice a year during the time change.

For sure some expensive watches offer very specialized features, but for telling time you can't go wrong with any low end name brand as long as you like the style.

Well, the thing is, watches (especially for guys) are no longer so much for telling time. They are jewellery, a fashion accessory. That's why guys who are into watches will keep buying them. Let's face it, if you needed something just to tell time and date, a $29 Casio would be the smartest choice.

By the way, while we're on the subject of Sears and Casio, this is your best deal:

I was so tempted, except I already have 2 atomic G-shock watches, and this would be too similar in use and function.

I tried to order the protrek watch, but it was on "backorder (till Jan 31 2013)." Will I get charged for backorder items? If so, I will probably get the Mudman instead. Is Protrek (PRG500) better than Mudman (G-9000)?

I wouldn't think they would charge you ahead of time if the item is on backorder. The Mudman has different functions/features even though they are both outdoors watches. The Protrek is more of a mountaineering/expedition type watch. But an important difference, if I'm not mistaken, is that the Mudman is not Solar-powered. Casio G-shocks are a little more finicky re battery changes because of the seals they use.

Are you sure it's on Backorder? I just tried, and I could add it to Cart and then to Secured Checkout. (I didn't proceed beyond that I wasn't going to buy).

I would never buy a Casio. I had one that broke after a couple of weeks. It was a cheapo, but I still expected more than that. The strap broke, and the dumb design of the watch didn't have replaceable straps with pins. It was all molded together. From that date on, I've been telling everybody to stay away from Casio.

Since this thread is about Citizens, I highly recommend the brand. I have 3 eco-drive chronos (different styles and colours) but the best of all is the perpetual calendar chrono A-T. Whether you like it simple or technogically advanced, Citizen eco-drives won't disappoint.

Thanks for your info. What would be life span for the solar power? 5-yrs, 10-yrs or even longer? I tried to check it out again, but I got no go.

My Casio tough solar has taken my daily careless abuse that my Seikos couldn't handle which was why I bought another Casio. My Citizen eco drive is nice but it doesn't feel like it can take a hit the way my Casio can. Both eco drive and tough solar are decent imho.

Yeah, it's true. I think that watches are to men as shoes are to women ... groan ... ;-)

I think life span for the solar battery varies. Like any rechargeble battery, life span depends on pattern of use and # of recharge cycles. My guess is, under "normal" use, probably close to 10 years.

So for the Protrek, that's what it shows when you tried to checkout? That's weird. Maybe I just didn't proceed far enough into the process to get that screen. But does it mean you're going to get the watch at the sale price, once they get new supply?
