I've got an Eco-drive, not the same as this one and not water resistant as far as I know, I take it off to shower and swim and don't dunk in as far as my wrists when washing up. Ij've had it for several years, worn every day it still looks as good as new and the time keeping is absolutely spot on.
I have one that is almost identical to the one you linked, the 'glass' covering is made from lab made sapphire as it is harder and less likely to scratch. I love mine, was from my dp last year for my 40th, goes with all of my clothes, quite understated as fairly small and very thin. The mother of pearl is really very pretty and delicate in colour.
This is my second Eco drive watch, my old one still goes fine, I have had that one for about 6 years. Would recommend this make every time.
Check with the company with regard to water resistant. I was always led to believe that water resistant is not waterproof so you should not immerse it in water totally. Also water resistant is really just splash proof. I may be wrong so would love to know if you find out.
Agree, I definitely won't be swimming in mine. My old watch had some sort of rating with the water resistant mark on the back, I think there is a scale of water resistance and some are more resistant than others. My Citizen doesn't have any figures with it, just the words Water Resist, so probably only splashproof.
