My last Purchase(s): Casio Edifice
EQSA500B-1AV, Bulova 96B129, Citizen AT2095-07E
I am still madly in love with all three watches and would buy them again in a heartbeat. To help you decide buying one (or all of them) I will provide you with quick pros and cons of all three watches:
The pros in a nutshell
Casio: a ton of functions and still a legible uncluttered dial. A great traveling watch, changing time zones so easy. Includes home time world time swap with the press of a button. Plus 10 laps timer with fastest lap. Great looking watch in my opinion with smart color scheme.
Bulova: high frequency Quartz, sweep seconds, great three dimensional hour markers, solid end-links, butterfly clasp. Curved sexy case, mineral and lugs makes this watch wearable for smaller wrists (6 1/2 inch).
Citizen: a simple Eco-Drive chronograph. Just press the button at two o'clock and start timing. Helpful 24 hour complication at the two o'clock sub dial. Great stealth looks. Very light: 78 grams only.
The cons in a nutshell
Casio: some users might not like to unscrew the crown for setting functions. World time abbreviations on inner chapter ring very small. Average lume. Mineral crystal.
Bulova: some owners have complained that their Precisionist is not running with then 10 seconds per year tolerance. No sapphire crystal. Average lume. Mineral crystal.
Citizen: not normal lugs, so swapping the band not easy. Factory rubber band is very thin and almost too flexible. Average lume. Mineral crystal.
