Citizen Eco-Drive BM6400-00E nylon strap nice looking watch
Citizen Eco-Drive BM6400-00E great value military watch.
Citizen Eco-Drive BM6400-00E is a well designed, attractive wrist watch that has a vintage look. They have the elements of a pilot or military style watch, but at the same time it looks refined enough for being dressed up a little.
The bigger numerals provide a large amount of surface for that luminescence, and it’s really obvious this watch was designed for being easily read during the night. I will still look at time throughout the night despite almost all of the glow intensity has gone. The dial is quite black and contrasts well with the hands and numerals so it is incredibly easy to read in bright sunlight.
It will be an easy task to upgrade to leather band when a more formal look were desired, and the watch itself certainly looks formal enough to wear to work with this Citizen Eco-Drive BM6400-00E or maybe a more formal band.
The only thing which might be improved is to have the day number a bit more visible. Some have complained it is impossible to read, but I would just say that may be a little bit better.
This watch is solid that has a nice weight and quite comfortable. It’s just the proper size for my small wrist. The screw down crown is essential for virtually every water resistant watch. It offers you confidence about this product.

Overall: I believe, Citizen Eco-Drive BM6400-00E is very the best value for the money. The bigger numbers and markers have a lot of luminous material and glow like beacons within a dark environment – great for night viewing. The fact that it is usually Water-proof as much as 200M is a really big plus as well as Eco-Drive, you have nothing to bother about except use it and appear good along the way.
This watch will not require batteries that will save big money over the life of this watch. Citizen Eco-Drive BM6400-00E Canvas is a good watch for the bucks.
