Just bought one of these, be very appreciative if you could tell me the exact make of the leather strap here…. The Citizen Nighthawk might be old news to a lot of watch people out there. And now we are going to have a closer look at this unique timepiece. On a side note: The printing, which gets very fine at points, is crisp and crystal clear and the applied markers, which add a drop of necessary texture, are pristine. The images of the watch with the leather Hirsch strap are they all the same color? My boss in my day job, who usually wears much more expensive watches, noticed it and even bought one himself as a summer watch.

Featured Hands-on Review by Chriscentro: This may last quite a bit longer. It’s well made, excluding the stock leather strap which is terrible, it has unique design, and it’s packed with features.

And thanks for the suggestion on the video.

I would be glad to pay a little extra for the convenience of a sapphire crystal. The crown at 3 also screws down, facilitating the m water resistance, and is adorned with a Nighthawk logo. It is well-built, has good lume, a nice bracelet and is solar-powered.
Finally one of the pins in the bracelet wore completely through. I think it suits the watch nicely and with all the cluttering going on the dial it ensures a minimum legibility needed to read the time easily in most conditions. The GMT index consists of two nested arcs that sweep about 98 degrees, from 6 — 12, one in white and one in red.
I really enjoy my nighthawk. Other than the roman-sword styled minute and hour hands, hwvanna hour index is the only lumed part of the dial, so when the lights are out, the effect is actually very serene, almost soothing.
The particular movement used in the Nighthawk has a date function as well as GMT hand which can display a second timezone. And now we are going to have a closer look at this unique timepiece. It is a love-it or hate-it type of dial that at first glance is bewildering, but as you look closer and get used to it, it becomes very clear and easy pilkt read.
Review: Citizen Nighthawk – Worn & Wound
I really wanted to get this watch, but I saw that beautiful Hirsch strap you had in those photos. Featured Hands-on Review by Chriscentro: The bracelet looks great, but it adds to the severity of the design. Despite being more hi-tech than a regular quartz movements, they are still quite cheap to produce on a mass scale.
That was a great video, what an awesome, in depth review! I just tried some natos again…the leathers were a definite no go. It has a very light etching with basic information and a Citizen Nighthawk logo in the center.
I wear my brown dial Asian market, BJW Nighthawk on a FFF leather strap; it is far too thick to push through or use with fat bars, but with standard bars it was easy to install. By Sean Lorentzen The scale is used to display 24 hour time or to set a second timezone. On a side note: I think the Nighthawk pulot had other versions you can find online — sapphire crystal for sure, think ecl was a titanium version too? And knowing that your watch is never going to suddenly stop as long as it sees a little sunlight here and there is a great feeling.
If you travel often and are looking for an affordable watch to put up with your jet setting, if you are active and want an interesting and different looking sport watch, if you want a modern styled pilot to add to your collection without breaking the bank, the Nighthawk might very well be exactly what you are looking for. The date disc underneath is white with black text. As an ex-pat living in western Canada, I find the second time-zone feature particularly useful and the watch has already been quite a talking point after only a week, cihizen more comments than my old Seiko Kinetic Auto-Relay from Both index extend a little past their end time to create an overlap area hence the about 8 extra degrees.
Right Now on eBay. Citizen Nighthawk lightly used.
