Luxury Watches: By the introduction of Eco-Drive, Citizen has changed the way watches tell time. An Eco-Drive watch uses the simplest, yet most technically advanced power generating and storage system in the industry today.
Eco-Drive utilizes a solar conversion panel and energy cell, which are the power providers for Citizen's quartz watches (a system citizen has been using for over 30 years, since its creation in 1976). Their ability to use light from any source means you will never be depending on a battery again. The absence of power-generating machinery that would require additional upkeep is another advantage to Eco-Drive technology.
As technology is moving into the eco-friendly age, Citizen is again at the forefront of the industry with this technology. At Baselworld this year, the brand released brand new, exclusively Eco-Drive watches for both men and women.
Available in five styles, the Citizen Eco-Drive Chrono-Time A•T includes world time in 26 cities with atomic timekeeping with radio-controlled accuracy. The rotating inner calculation ring, perpetual calendar power reserve indicator and a 1/5 second chronograph that measures up to 60 minutes give the dial of the timepiece high graphic impact as well as high functionality.
The brown crocodile strap of the the Limited Edition Citizen Eco-Drive Chrono-Time A•T enhances the stainless steel rose gold-toned case, bringing the design to the level of luxurious timepieces and making it the perfect addition to any man's collection. With a worldwide limited release of only 2,500 pieces, aficionados and collectors alike will be eager to get their hands on this one.
The Chrono-Time will be available in stainless steel with a brown leather strap, stainless steel with a black or blue dial, two-tone rose gold stainless steel and, of course, the limited edition which comes in an exclusive wooden presentation box.
Citizen's list of "World's First" achievements goes on and on, from the world's slimmest LCD watch to the first voice recognition watch to the world's first professional dive watch with an electronic depth sensor. Now, Citizen is bringing their innovative light-powered technology from 1976 into the 21st century with the exceptional Eco-Drive Chrono-Time A•T, fusing luxurious timepiece components with the industry's most sought-after technology.
