Review Summary:

A truly great semi-luxury watch that you'll never have to configure again after the initial configuration and leaves you nothing to worry about.

Citizen has always been one of the leaders in the watch industry. They never fail to come up with watches that impress their customers and watch lovers around the world. The same can be said about the Citizen CC3005-85-E Satellite Wave Analog Watch. Coming from their newest watch lineup, the Citizen CC3005-85-E Satellite Wave Analog Watch features an improved classic Japanese design that brings gives the watch a modern and professional look.

Perhaps the main key-selling point of this watch is its GPS time syncing, hence its name. The watch works on GPS signals. This means that wherever you might be in the world, the time watch will automatically sync to the time zone that you are in. This feature will give you accurate time for life regardless of your location.

The watch’s design is reminiscent of the classic Japanese watches but with a modern touch. The black dial is absolutely clean. The bezel is filled with inscriptions of certain cities of the world like CHI (for Chicago), RIO (for Rio de Janeiro), LON (for London) and many more. The watch also features a sapphire dial window which should make it more resilient and durable.

The build quality of the watch is definitely one of the best in this price range. Although at this price range I would prefer a titanium case, the stainless steel case feels great on the wrist. You couldn’t ask for more from this watch when it comes to its construction because you can see and feel the amount of detail given to the creation of this watch.

Even though it is marketed only as a semi-luxury watch, the Citizen CC3005-85-E Satellite Wave Analog Watch can easily be mistaken as a true luxury watch. It’s one of those watches that users will be very much delighted to buy because you only need to configure once and never set it again.

A truly great semi-luxury watch that you'll never have to configure again after the initial configuration and leaves you nothing to worry about.
