Citizen Stiletto Watch Review: Eco-Drive, Strap, Bracelet

Updated on January 9, 2015

Classic Citizen

Stiletto is Citizen's most conservative collection. Rectangular and round timepieces in traditional designs, reminiscent of high-end luxury Blancpain and Vacheron Constantin, represent first and foremost style (as the name of the collection suggests).

Similarly to these Swiss watchmakers, many Stiletto watches have leather straps – the most straightforward solution to keeping things as simple as possible, focusing on the ultra-clean cases and dials.

These timers will fit perfectly persons who revere tradition and have a penchant for old-school everything: starting from demeanor and ending with everyday objects.

Elegant Resistance

There are some overlaps with the Citizen Silhouette and Corso collections, but what makes the Stiletto stand out is the stripped, somewhat antiquated design. These watches look vintage and old-fashioned, raising an entire historic level for both the wearer and the observer – if the latter cares to notice.

In terms of visual effect, Stiletto conveys reliability and reliance on known and proven ways. Elegant, thin lines resist embellishments and dominate the design even in the two-tone variations. This design is not for everyone, but if it's for you, you will know it right away.

The Golden Middle

Watches from this collection may suit both casual and dressy occasions – depending on the design – but the stress, I think, was made on everyday use. Most dials are either black or white, appealing to essentially two different personalities: the closed one and the open one. Black usually represents mystery and solitude, and will match people who often prefer to be left alone; white is the exact opposite, signaling readiness for communication.

Neither attitude is objectively “good”, and there are defects in each when taken to the extreme. Still, your choice of a particular color may speak for you general preference. And in case you are somewhere in the middle, Citizen Stiletto can be found with blue dials – a pretty rare but needed variety.
