Are you looking for a Citizen Eco-Drive watch for yourself or someone special but have no idea where to start? We can help with this simple guide to choosing that perfect watch.
A good place to start would be the classic watches with their stunning appearance that suits all occasions. These watches have been popular for years, and still are due to their eternal style sense. Furthermore, with citizen’s eco-drive technology all the watches in this range certainly are one step ahead of their time. Available to buy with a genuine leather strap or with a metal bracelet in one or two tone colour, there are plenty of different watches to choose from and fall in love with.
Watches with titanium cases have the durability factor. In some watches only the case is made from titanium but in others the strap is also the same material. This creates a stronger, longer lasting construction yet at the same time does not add any extra weight, making it perfect for use in your active life where durability is essential but extra weight needs to be avoided.
Stiletto watches are another example of a dress watch but are a step up from the classic citizen designs. Thanks to the advanced thin mechanism built by citizen, these watches were launched as the world’s slimmest solar powered watch. Designs such as these are perfect for nights out when they are not only readily available for the time, but can also be hidden discreetly under a sleeve.
Radio controlled watches are a great gift for the perfectionist. The watch will periodically synchronise with the time signal tower, allowing it to show precise local time. The signal tower relays this time to your watch from a standard scientist’s clock which is correct to 1 second in a million years so it is safe to say that your watch will always be the most accurate way to tell the time. This feature can be used in UK as well as in the regions of Germany, the USA, Japan and China as citizen watches are able to pick up the signal from the towers in these zones.
A perpetual calendar is another nifty little time saver. The majority of watches nowadays display the date, whether it is just the number, the day of the week or both. However, this type of calendar automatically adjusts the date, registering which months have which number of days and when it is a leap year. This means that unlike most analogue watches, there is no need to change the date manually at the start of every month.
DUAL TIME / WORLD TIME
This is a collection of practical watches that is ideal for travellers and professionals. Perhaps your job requires you to travel abroad to a particular country on a regular basis - With the dual time zone option, there is a separate dial that you can set up for another country enabling you to view both your local time and that of your destination. Another option is the world time feature. Simply set the location and the watch will do the rest.
SATELLITE WAVE AIR
The ultimate watch design for accurate timekeeping and world-wide reception. Synchronizing both with the time and the calendar, the watch receives signals like the radio controlled designs, except these signals come from a satellite orbiting the earth at 20,000 km hence the ability for around the globe service. This unique design is extra special because citizen produced the world’s first satellite synchronized watch with full metal casing, which is sure to enhance your professional look.
Citizen, in partnership with Royal Military, has made some unique watches available to everyone.
The Royal Marines watches are built to be super-tough in order to adhere to the specifications required of them. Examples of their features include premium sapphire crystal glass with 9H hardness for extra protection against scratches, titanium casing and 300 meters of water resistance, giving the watch the ability to be used in virtually any possible situation. Another unique feature to be seen on some models is the Kevlar strap, which is not only comfortable but also has been crafted from the same materials that can be found in bullet-proof vests.
The Red Arrows collection is made in partnership with Red arrows team, the ambassadors of the Royal Air Force. The Red Arrows are well known around the world as an aerobatics display team. These watches are inspired by the Red Arrows reputation which is built on commitment and professionalism as they pride themselves on precision performance with unrivalled skill, passion and equipment.
Any watch in the category is sure to be extra special as there are only a limited number made with each one having its own unique number. In addition, they usually have special packaging that is specific to that model only and cannot be found elsewhere.
