Citizen launches the world's most accurate wrist watch
Citizen announced the Middle East launch of the Eco-Drive Global Radio-Controlled Watch model. This watch is CITIZEN's first analogue chronograph capable of receiving standard time radio-waves from multiple stations around the world validating this watch as the most accurate wrist watch in the world.
The model is designed to receive standard time radio-waves from stations across Europe, USA and Asia. The new Eco-Drive radio-controlled model is innovative and continues to feature CITIZEN's flight pilot's watch design. With the introduction of the Global Radio-Controlled Watch, Citizen reaffirms its position as a leader in timekeeping technology.
For world time, users can choose from 26 cities and UTC (Universal Time Coordinates). By simply turning the dial disk using the crown to switch the city allows the user to easily adjust the hour and second hands to the time zone of the city selected.
The watch is powered by Eco-Drive movement with power saving mode, the most advanced light powered movement, freeing you from the hassle of changing battery.
The pilot's slide rule dial ring located beneath the glass and the precise 1/5 sec. chronograph symbolize the concept of an elaborate and masculine design that imparts the image of an airplane cockpit. Other features include charge level indicator, power reserve indicator, and alarm.
The Global Radio Controlled watch is skillfully harmonized with technology and fashion. For most frequent global travelers, it is difficult to plan and adjust time schedules of various countries when travelling. But the Radio Controlled watch makes it effortless to move across the continents and easily adjust time. The Pilot watch design also gives an inventive look to the watch.
The company was established in 1918. The founding fathers selected the name Citizen so it would be “Close to the Hearts of People Everywhere” and soon after adopted the company’s formal name, Citizen Watch Company.
During the last ninety years Citizen has expanded its business throughout the world and has achieved recognition as a global brand. The past 30 years period has coincided with the company’s dramatic rise to its current position as the world’s largest watchmaker, a distinction Citizen has held every year since 1986.
Beyond sheer size, Citizen is also recognized as a worldwide leader in advanced technology. From the world’s slimmest LCD watch to the first voice recognition watch and the world’s first professional dive watch with an electronic depth sensor, Citizen’s record of “world firsts” is unmatched. More recently, Citizen has staked out a new position as the leader in Ecologically Friendly timekeeping with its Eco-Drive collection of light powered watches. With models ranging from dress to sport to professional dive watches.
