Citizen Eco Drive Nylon Strap BM8475-00F Men’s Watch

A simple yet cool watch, that’s what comes to mind when you look at the Citizen Men’s BM8475-00F. The appeal of this watch lies in the all black ensemble, the black nylon strap with black dial and markers. If chunky and jazzy is your style then this one is not for you. I chose this watch for its dark good looks and sleek design. Citizen brand has always been my choice for an everyday watch, and, I am a great fan of Citizen’s Eco Drive technology.

By now, most of you watch lovers must be familiar with the Eco Drive concept where the watch is powered by light, any light source will do. It means your watch never needs a battery change which in turn means a smaller number of used batteries discarded in the thrash which ultimately is great news for the environment.

The Citizen Eco Drive Nylon Strap BM8475-00F Men’s Watch gives off a military bearing and of course it is a sturdy timepiece with features to match. Made of tough stainless steel and mineral glass crystal covering the face, it is water resistant to a depth of 100 meters. It is ideally suited for a day at the beach or snorkelling or even a dip in the pool. The added advantage is the nylon strap that makes it an ideal watch to wear around water. 

The Citizen Eco Drive BM8475-00F Men’s Watch can take the rough and tumble of heavy activity in its stride – it is built to last and keeps perfect time regardless. I’m not a big fan of bulky watches, but at 42mm case diameter, this watch is a good size fitting my wrists nicely. In fact, the nylon strap adds to the comfort level of the watch.

Due to its dark colour, reading the time in insufficient light may pose a problem to some. The luminous hands and markers in the watch may ease this problem to an extent. If, like me, you plan to wear the watch every day it will go with any outfit, be it a suit or the casual slacks and tee. The monochrome laidback design gives it a cool and trendy look. I would say it is especially perfect as a daytime accessory to complement any attire.
