The Citizen Eco-Drive Diver watch is a lot easier to use than other Eco-Drive chrono models, which have a longer learning curve. You must really consult the manual to get all the chrono hands working properly. In contrast, the Diver watch is a snap to use and I like its basic brawny look. The bezel is about 48 mm. Over the last 2.5 years, the Diver has kept accurate time. Highly recommended.
The automatic Invicta Corduba, which I bought about 2 years ago, has proven reliable and boasts a 60 mm bezel width, but I notice that if you over-wind it (sometimes I wind it when I know I won't be using it so that it keeps running), the time is a bit fast. Also, if you under-use it, the time slows down five or ten minutes, but normally I don't have this problem enough for me to be bothered by it. I don't see the automatic anymore on Amazon and suspect that it has been discontinued. Battery-operated models can still be found on Amazon for less than half the original price, like this $80 model.
Comparing Solar and Automatic
Solar is less the hassle. Just keep the watch in the sunlight and there's no variation of time. On the other hand, automatic requires regular wear (motion winds it) or winding and variations in movement seem to compromise time accuracy.
Best Watch Value That Requires No Battery
I don't own this watch, but if I had to buy only one watch, I'd get the Seiko Black Monster diver watch, about $190 on Overstock. It's automatic, which means no battery replacements. Its 45 bezel isn't my usual 50-60 XL size preference, but for the money, it can't be beat.
