First impressions: flash, bling, a lot of watch. If you are looking for discrete this watch certainly isn't it. Someone asked if it cost 4K!
Quality: The steel strap gave me pause for concern. It doesn't feel high end (compared with my Breitling Colt) but for the price its acceptable IMO.
Setup is a bit of a pain but that's more to do with the instructions I think. A few days later BST started and it set itself up without complication. Radio controlled, no battery, world time all complimented with stunning looks. A very lovely time piece for the money.

It's a very nice watch, but to each his own of course, this is purely a matter of taste. To me this watch looks and feels great.

Great specs: radio controlled, solar charging, world time zones, 2 alarms, LED for the digital displays, stopwatch, count down timer, (digital) date and day display possible, luminous hands and a seconds hand. Almost every advertisement sums these specs up better than I can and those are the reason I chose it.

The stopwatch counts up to 24 hours, lowest unit 0,01 sec. A lot of other watches are limited to only 24 or 60 minutes, using a 0.001 sec unit. In my opinion a lower limit of 0,001 sec is rather useless if you time 'by hand'.

Very easy switching between your own home time zone end your world time zone.

Water resistant to 200 m. Most watches (not meant for diving) are 100.

Some minor points.

The blue of the dial is much darker than I expected. The blue bezel is almost black.

The bezel functions are mainly (imperial) flight oriented. In principle they are log scales that allow some arithmetic like on the old slide rule. You would easier use your smart phone. But the look impressive!

The luminous hands works reasonably well. Late at night in the dark I can still tell the time, although the difference in length of the hour and minutes hands is rather small and thus not easy to see for me (p.e. 4:07 vs 1:20 hr).

The LED for the digital displays works nice, although the lower part gets less light and is harder to see.

Points I do not like.

No hourly alarm.

The glass is of type mineral and for this price I think they should have used sapphire.

The volume of the sounds (for the alarm and some acknowledgements) of the watch is real low. I can't hear them in a normal environment. This makes the alarms totally unusable for me.

Something I did not realize before is the use of the crown. With the watch on your wrist it is not really doable. This means you will have to at least loosen up your watch, or remove it from your arm entirely. When I looked at some other watches again, I now noticed some do not use a crown, thus avoiding this problem.
Mind you, changing the mode is done by using the crown and almost the first step you need to take. Just momentarily looking at the time in, say New York, if not set as your World Time in addition to your Home Time, is not real simple. The same goes for setting an alarm, using the stopwatch, etc.

On the other hand, Citizen has assigned the functions to the crown and the 2 buttons rather well. The crown makes rotation possible as part of an adjustment, whereas with watches using 3 or 4 buttons you will have to push a button, which is less 'natural'.

The service of FCW is great by the way!

My wife bought me the Citizen Blue Angel watch as a 40th wedding anniversary present. It is the finest watch I've ever owned, and the most expensive, and the quality is superb. The service from First Class Watches has been superb, the watch fitted perfectly out of the box thanks to the bracelet adjustment service they provide. I have no reservation in recommending them.

Just bought this watch and it's amazing. Service, delivery and requests were dealt with perfectly. Bought as a second watch to an expensive Breitling that I can use daily and really matches up well to it's more expensive brother and as good looking if not more than it! Highly recommended, you won't regret it and great work from First Class Watches!
