Citizen World Perpetual AT Review

Citizen World Perpetual AT Watch Review

  The Citizen World Perpetual AT packs a big punch at an extremely reasonable price point. One of the biggest features easily overlooked in my opinion is the use of sapphire crystal within this collection. This will help ensure you can see your dial scratch free for years to come. The dial is designed very well, it has nice depth and contrast throughout. In between the 4 and 5 o’clock position there is an “on/off” function, this is for day light savings time. You will also notice in between the 8 and 10 o’clock position there is a section for that is used for syncing the atomic clock via radio controlled frequency. Nice! 
  World time is a breeze, simply pull the crown out and pick the needed timezone from any of the 26 major cities for your travels. There is a standard date window at the 3 o’clock position. The World Perpetual AT has nicely defined hour and seconds hands, complimenting the hour indices markers. Citizen offers the World Perpetual AT in many variations, dial color, bracelet or strap, stainless steel, titanium, and some limited editions. Overall, great watch, packed full of practical features, including Eco-Drive.

Pros - Sapphire crystal, atomic time, ease of use, newer movement being used H144

Consideration - The crown may be hard to work for some, it is on the small side.
