Citizen BL5250-02L Watch Review | Eco-Drive Chronograph


Citizen BL5250-02L Watch Review Summary

My rating: 9/10, Excellent watch, Eco-Drive technology.

Citizen BL5250-02L watch is another feature rich timepiece from Citizen’s popular Eco-Drive series. The Eco-Drive series all use the power of light to fuel themselves, that’s natural or artificial light. The Eco-Drive technology also means you wont have to be changing any batteries which is a nice little money saver. The watch casing and bezel are made of titanium which is stronger and lighter than traditional stainless steel, it’s also favoured by those who have allergies to metal and require something hypo-allergenic friendly.

The use of a perpetual calender is a big plus for me as you no longer need to adjust the date at the start of each month, once set it automatically adjusts for the varying amount of days in each month. The chronograph, tachymetre and alarm are also nice added benefits of this watch.
