Citizen Men’s Eco-Drive Promaster Nighthawk Dual Time Watch Product Review

Citizen Men’s Nighthawk Dual Time Watch stands out from the crowd for its sleek and formal looking design. I think it would look great even with casual or workwear, making it a great choice if you want to feel ready to survive at any given moment.

One of the key features of this survival watch is its powerful ability to utilize power from light sources. It is not just solar-powered; the hands on the analog clock face are luminous. They therefore don’t need a battery, hence the ‘eco-drive’ name, and they are easy to read without the need to double-take. It also features a low-charge warning, so there will be your watch’s battery won’t unexpectedly fail on you.

Durability is also not an issue when it comes to Citizen’s survival watch. It is water-resistant up to 660 feet, so it would be suitable for water-based scenarios. It is built from stainless steel, with the interface protective by a 42mm stainless steel case as well. The watchband is stainless steel with a fold-over clasp, so it shouldn’t rust easily either.

Despite being of the best analog survival watches, a significant issue with this being a survival watch is the ease with which the dial window can get scratched. This is not ideal for long-term use and is worth considering if you want an especially tough watch. It also doesn’t contain many of the extra features found in most survival watches, such as a barometer and thermometer, which is worth noting if you want something multi-functional.
