The most robust watch crystals are made out of sapphire glass. Only diamonds and carbide is harder and can scratch sapphire glass. Of course there are other materials such as some metals and stones which will scratch your sapphire glass crystal, so it is not wise to expect the watch to handle any abuse without getting marked. Sapphire has one downside though, it is highly reflective. Some watches receive an anti-glare coating to compensate for this, but sadly this coating is less hard and will scratch more easily.

Radiocontrol
Radio controlled watches and clocks are timepieces that are able to receive a radio transmitted time signal and set themselves to it. They are what you and me can use to benefit from these incredibly exact atomic clocks out there. There are many different time signals, most countries have their own, so lets get technical: There is the MSF signal, also known as “Rugby Clock”, which broadcasts at a frequency of 60 kHz from the Anthorn radio station in Cumbria at a signal strength of 17 kW. The effective range is approx. 1000 km, so it will be received throughout the UK and western Europe. There are three atomic clocks on site, operated by the National Physical Laboratory. The information in the signal includes the UTC (former GMT) year, month, day of month, day of week, hour, minute, British Summer Time. The other commonly used radio time signal broadcast in Europe is the DCF77. This is broadcast from Mainflingen, near Frankfurt/Germany. So it is placed pretty centrally in Europe. It is transmitted at 77.5 kHz with a relatively high power of 50 kW, which means it has an effective range of 2000+ km. The signal contains pretty much the same information that the UK MSF signal does, but in UTC+1 (or CET). It is widely used in Europe because of its strength and centrally located broadcasting station. It is also quite popular in the UK, as almost all radio controlled watches can be set to a different time zone. This means they will still receive the DCF77 signal, but then add or subtract the amount of hours according to which time zone they have been set to.
There are multi-frequency watches available. These watches will be able to receive different time signals on different frequencies. Apart from the UK’s MSF and the European DCF77, the most common ones are the US WWVB (60 kHz) and the Japanese JJY (40 kHz and 60 kHz).
It is very important to know that the radio signal and the reception thereof is subject to various conditions. Apart from the fact that the signal does not mix that well with thick concrete and steel buildings, the time of day and the weather play a huge role. Rain will lower the range, but the signal will bounce off clouds, amplifying it a bit. The signal can travel further at nights and even the time of year and the position of the moon can have a slight impact. It has happened, that radio controlled clocks in eastern Canada set themselves regularly to the German DFC77 signal. It can also happen that you will have problems receiving the signal in the middle of England. Most commonly it is a too weak battery, but you could live in a valley or behind a mountain or just a massive building. If you are having problems receiving a radio signal, place it on the windowsill over night, preferably in the direction of the broadcasting station which signal you are trying to receive. If this does not work, turning the watch by 45° might do the trick. Sounds like a lot of witchcraft? Well, radio controlled watches are a lot more technical and tricky than normal ones. A perfect every-day reception is by no way guaranteed by the manufacturers. And it is not really required as the watches only use the signal to set their highly accurate quartz movements. Unless you calculate time in milliseconds, a couple of days without a signal will pass unnoticed.

Perpetual calendar
A perpetual calendar is a calendar that will give you the day of the week at any date in any year. So it would tell you for example that January the 11th in 2023 is a Wednesday. This works because the only part of the day and date never repeats itself: the year. Days, weeks, months all keep repeating themselves throughout their cycle. This can be used to fit a calendar into a watch that will continue to proceed through these cycles and never run out. Plus it gives you the day of the week.
Waterproof
Water tightness or impermeability, surprisingly enough, is the degree to which you can expose your watch to the element water. A watch can be water repellent to a variety of degrees, from surviving the odd splash, to keeping the watch fully functioning long after your crushed body has hit the ocean floor. Please note that these are always theoretical values. Water behaves very differently at different temperatures and with varying salinity. So we took our crayons and made you this rough guide (which, by the way, is in no way legally binding and we will not be held accountable for your watch if you ruin it):

This beautiful watch gives such pleasure. Perhaps some of the beauty is in its functionality and its absolute ability to do what it was designed to do. It sits very comfortably on the wrist and the bracelet is highly functional and attractive. I stopped checking that the overnight radio control signal was received OK, because it never misses a signal. The radio control together with Citizens fabulous and highly regarded Eco Drive makes this a really desirable package that will never need a battery change and at such an attractive price. The watch is quietly attractive and exudes quality and functionality. This is a proper watch from a highly respected company and I highly recommend it.

Eine wirklich klasse Uhr,

der Verschluss ist hervorragend, vor allen aber das die Uhr sich selber stellt Datum Uhrzeit finde ich fantastisch.
alles in allem ein guter Kauf.
Bin sehr zufrieden damit - endlich die Uhr die ich schon immer haben wollte

Hierbei handelt es sich um eine tolle Uhr in der gewohnten Citizen-Qualität. Ein elegantes und sportliches Äußeres verbunden mit Funk- und Eco-Drive-Technik und man kann sich einfach aufs Tragen konzentrieren und diese hübsche Uhr genießen. Davon kann man einfach nicht genug bekommen.

Tolle Uhr, bin sehr zufrieden mit ihr und werde noch zum Citizen Fan...
Äußerlich sieht die Uhr einfach spitze aus, hat für mich einen ungewohnt großen Durchmesser von ca. 4cm, aber das ist überhaupt kein Problem. Gewöhnt man sich schnell dran. Meine vorherigen Uhren waren alle nur kleiner. Die Höhe beträgt 1cm und sie wiegt ca. 120g. Auch daran habe ich mich schnell gewöhnt. Das Armband besteht aus feingliedrigen Edelstahlgliedern und wird mit einer Faltschließe verschlossen. Bei mir mussten noch zwei Glieder raus. Das habe ich beim örtlichen Juwelier machen lassen.
Die Uhr ist solarbetrieben, das schont nicht nur die Umwelt, sondern spart auch Zeit, da kein Batteriewechsel mehr nötig ist. Funkbetrieben ist sie auch, also entfällt das Einstellen der Uhrzeit. Sehr praktisch! Und auch das Datum und der Wochentag lassen sich so einstellen, dass man nie wieder eine Einstellung vornehmen muss. Die Uhr speichert auch Schaltjahre...
