You should always try to be on on time but when it's a special event, if you are late you'll miss that once in a lifetime moment. It won't ever come again. You have got to be on time.

One way to do that easily and beautifully, is with a great watch. It makes a fashion statement and it keeps you on schedule.

This particular Citizen"Eco-Drive" Diamond watch EW 1934-59A ($350) has diamonds and gold/silver details that make it dressy enough to wear with special event outfits, but the brushed metal and large dial work just as well with casual and daytime clothes. It is a perfect match for special events.

Citizen makes all kinds of watches, but their eco drive watch are particularly interesting because they are (literally) powered by light so you don't need batteries.The Eco-Drive converts any source of light (natural and artificial) into usable energy. The harnessed energy is then stored in a special power reserve to keep the timepiece charged and running properly. When fully charged, a watch with Eco-Drive will continue running – even in total darkness- for at least six (6) months (how amazing is that)? Like a good relationship, if it is properly maintained, this watch will keep working virtually forever and will never need another battery. It's "green" and economical.It is also extremely reliable, so you will never be late and miss life's important moments, or at least you won't have any excuses for being late!

Consider too, the romance in a watch that is powered by light and will run as long as it is exposed to light. So the watch makes a particularly appropriate gift for a man to give his bride. Of course, it's also a great gift for a graduate, or for anyone for any occasion, or to give yourself as guest, or just because you want to be on time and look great every day.

The watch looks very expensive, but it's just $350. With an 8 diamond dial, 3-hand date element and a stainless steel two-tone adjustable 7¼” long, 14mm wide bracelet in gold/silver to match all your accessories, you can wear it everyday because it isn't flashy, just classy. It's also water resistant to 100 meters. The metal band closes smoothly in the back so it looks like a bracelet. Although I personally like numbers on the dial, this watch has accents at 3, 6, 9 and 12 so you can easily figure out the time. The rest of the "numbers" are denoted by tiny sparkling diamonds. The date feature is tiny but readable. It's just a slam-dunk, all-over gorgeous watch for every woman for every reason for every season, forever. There are similar styles without the diamonds, but this one is just perfect!!!

You can find Citizen Watches in many places both in retail stores and online. These are not all that expensive for some, a splurge and a luxury for others, but they're an investment in the special moments you can't miss.
