Eco-drive technology is the term used for the movement fitted into most modern Citizen watches. It means your watch is powered by light, rather than a traditional quartz battery. In terms of real-world use, it means that your watch never needs a new battery change. Also, it doesn't require regular light exposure.
I own this watch on an SS bracelet and have found it to be a very robust and solid watch, with a hefty weight for a quartz watch. Out of all my watches, this seems to garner the most attention. Despite its cluttered dial, I actually find it legible at a glance. It has a slide rule to perform mathematical calculations - word around Ozbargain is that MathNerd actually uses it to write and perform stock market algorithms. It wears a little larger due to the lack of a diver's bezel which makes the dial area larger. It only has a hardened mineral crystal (no sapphire) - but mine is still flawless after a few years of abuse and I use it as a beater watch.
The Euro/Asian model - has an engraved caseback, unlike the US model. Used prices are generally strong.
The SS bracelet version is AU$290.37 and normally retails on US Amazon for US $199
