    Well today I finished the last assignment for my collegiate career. With my other professors telling me my grades I am officially done with school. So I went out and was just walking around our local mall with my girlfriend. An I saw it. So I broke down and bought it. It was 25% off so I just pulled the trigger.

    My new Citizen Eco - Drive
    AT4007-54E.

    I know it's not a good photo but more are to come as soon as I get to play with my moms photography gear.

    Congrats. Nice watch, hate to be a downer, but now you will have to make up reason for future watch purchases because Eco-Drives just wont die. I've tried my hardest for the past decade to kill more than one Eco's, the bands will go the crystals will scratch but the movements wont stop. No joke, I took one out of rotation for at least a year in the dark, after 30+- seconds in the sun it started back, so it got sent back to Citizen for a new band and crystal.

    That's what I've heard. I wanted a tough watch. I mean I'm not planning on diving with it. But I am rough on my toys. It amazes my friends to see me beating something with a ZT or some nice knife so I figure my watch will get abuse also. I already have my next watch in mind. These habits are really expensive. That is my one regret about joining this forum. I spen too much money.

    Congrats on school, its a great gift to yourself and yes, a nice watch does give a good impression in an interview. It shows your employers you do care about the time, and not just your phone.

    Thank you. I really appreciate it and yeah I thought it was a good way to celebrate (on top of blowing my graduation money on a new firearm).

    I couldn't be happier. I want to expand my collection but for now this is perfect. I did see quite a few other Citizens I really liked.

    Thank you very much. I appreciate it.

    Those are great points. Honestly I feel its much more appropriate for when working with customers also. That way by glancing at your watch you are just checking the time not looking at texts or emails or playing Temple Run 2.

    Congrats, I just finished up with a Bachelors in Business Administration. May I ask what it means where it says "Radio Controlled" on the face? When it gets past the basic "time" stuff I'm watch dumb.
