    Both look good, are elegant yet modern and versatile - thus suitable both for workplace and casual wear - and with good mechanism, outstanding in their price range.

    I'd take the first: it's slightly more distinctive, noticeable and with a Panerai-esque flair.

    I completely agree. The first one. Both are very nice. The first one looks like it has more character. I band is better looking also. I'd go with the first one.

    Thanks for the replies everyone. I'll probably end up going with the first, since it was my first choice anyways.
    Any more votes?

    I would say neither but from the two, easily the first.
    Top 5 (random order):
    1. Creed Aventus
    2. L'Instant de Guerlain Extreme
    3. Le Labo Rose 31
    4. Terre D'Hermes EdT
    5. YSL Rive Gauche

    I wanted to say the top but the orange numerals may be a bit too casual. So by the second by default.

    for swap/sale:

    Personally I don't like the first because of the orange digits and the second is too monochrome black. Both are fine though if you like them and they fit your style.

    Looks like most are liking the first. If you guys/gals have any suggestions on other watches that look similar, please feel free to post

    I like the monochrome black one with the canvas band.

    I like the Eco-Drive as a watch. Of those, I'd take the first also.

    Ya, Citizen eco drive is a solid product. I have a chronograph I've worn to work for the past few years and it's been great, plus Citizen offers a 5 year warranty.

    I prefer a more sporty style on a young man. They use the phone for time. Try a Nixon. A much younger, hip line.

    Thank you for the suggestion. Can you suggest a specific model?
    I typically wear casual attire. For the most part, a plain v neck with jeans.

    I chose two citizen watches because I own two other Citizens and have never had an issue with them.

    I like the first. It is quite distinctive with the orange face and leather band.

    The first one. It's bold. IMO, there is no reason to wear a watch anymore unless you are trying to make a statement, and the first one makes a bigger statement.

    Out of those two, the first one is better. Don't like black on brown though.

    first one, without hesitation

    Thanks everyone. Late reply, but I went with the first. I understand most people don't wear watches now, but I tend to stand out of the crowd anyways.
