Costco has the Citizen Men's CB0010-53L Eco-Drive World Perpetual A-T Watch for $220 + tax. I picked one up today and the box displays its MSRP - $475.The cheapest price for this watch on ebay is $295. The great thing about buying it from Costco is that it isn't a gray-market dealer, so the watch comes with Citizen's 5 year warranty
It's Costco item number is 644470. I say YMMV, but the Costco's in SoCal that I checked (San Bernardino, Cypress, Fullerton) have it, as well as other posters in Twin Cities, Minnesota/Houston, Texas/Grand Rapids, Michigan so hopefully all Costco's have it. Call your local Costco ahead of time with the item number and ask if it's in stock.
As a heads up, the watch wasn't found with the main jewelry display. It had it's own display off to the side. Ask an employee for help locating it if you can't find it.
Personally I think it's a great looking watch (for a great price) that's about as hassle-free as a watch can be. It's time is super accurate since it's atomic, and it automatically adjusts for Daylight Savings Time. According to DJRobNM who purchased it a year ago, "The single best feature is the sapphire crystal which after many months of abuse looks as good as new."
Here's a review of the watch (with pics and video): http://forums.watchuse
Any input would be greatly appreciated!
Edit: Some people suggested that it shouldn't be YMMV because its everywhere (so I took it out of the title). Let me know if there's a case where the watch isn't available at your local Costco so I can add the most accurate information possible. Oh, and for the people who care about where stuff is made. The watch is made in Japan and the steel watch band is made in China.
