$200 for the Citizen Nighthawk is a great deal.
How about a Citizen Nighthawk. I have one and love it. The blue lume is great. It's got some basic water resistance for washing hands and light swimming. Solid piece, without being bulky - also super comfortable to wear.

Hey guys! So I am on the newer side to watches, I own three at this point, but I am very quickly becoming obsessed! Was wondering if anyone had an opinion on this watch because it did catch my eye as a potential purchase in the near future. Also if you have any alternative suggestions within relatively the same price point ($300) I would love to hear them! Here is the amazon link: [link]
I was wonderign if you guys could recommend a watch band for me.
I just bought this on prime day: [link]
and I think a nato strap would look good, maybe in #8, or in natural leather.
What's a good band, price, durability, and comfort included?

Citizen Eco-Drive Nighthawk BJ7000-52
Used to wear it a lot more than i do now, just sitting in my watch box. I bought it new about a year or so ago and immediately took it off the bracelet, so it is still new quality. i have the box and instruction manual for all the functions, which i actually used! When i bought the watch i was working as a flight instructor and the slide rule was quite useful. no scratches on the crystal that i can see, light wear on the case, band is brand new quality. i got it new, on sale for $250.00 looking to sell for $180.00 shipped to the US.
I'm a little confused, because I googled "citizen nighthawk amazon" and the first link is the watch. [link]
I assumed you did that too. So, what are you looking for?
Thinking about buying a Citizen Nighthawk in the near future, does anyone have any experience or opinions on this watch?? [link]
My favorite Citizen is the Nighthawk. It's got the same slide-rule system that this one has (which lets you do unit conversions, calculate fuel mileage, arrival time, and also all kinds of arithmetic by rotating the crown on the left, which rotates the outer bezel inside of the crystal) , but ditches the Chronograph function in place of a really cool and intuitive dual time zone/GMT hand. In addition, it's a bit more water resistant and suitable for just about anything short of saturation diving. It's also a really nice, timelessly-styled piece that's probably always going to look cool.
I own several Citizens and they are without question great watches. Think of them and Seiko as the Honda and Toyota of timepieces; while they lack the cachet of European brands (TAG Heuer, Rolex, etc), they make up for it with extreme reliability and build quality. Their highest end pieces have legitimately comparable build quality and features to those brands for thousands less.
As far as Citizen Eco-Drives go (as opposed to mechanical self-winding watches, which are more expensive and ironically less accurate), they generally are bulletproof and maintenence free, with a lithium-ion battery that does not require service for 20+ years in most cases. They tell time with excellent accuracy (I have one that only deviates a few seconds every three or four months) and are about the easiest watch to own, as they charge themselves without any special action required.

Order it from here trust me, Jomashop is not bad but the reason they sell the same watches as other retailers for less is because the watches they sell DO NOT come with manufacturers warranty. If you order it through the link I provided you (which is shipped and sold by Amazon), you should have the manufacturers warranty. Here is Citizens' authorized retailers list. You'd be glad you spent a little extra money if something breaks in the watch.
It's this one.
Does jomashop have the best deal on a new citizen nighthawk at ~$200?
Amazon currently selling for $300
Exactly what I was thinking.

I'm not sure if he wears/needs a watch but my wife picked this up for me recently and I LOVE it!!! It has a secondary 24 hour clock to set for zulu time (the hour hands for it are planes) and a built in E6B (flight calculator for time, fuel, speed, etc.). I've never met a pilot who has not admired it.
Edit: my wife just told me that after adding this to her cart and checking out on Amazon the price dropped another 20%, not sure if the sale is still active or not but it puts it closer to your $200 goal. Good luck and let us know what he ends up getting!!!
amazon has this one
