Citizen Expands Promaster with New World Timer

From JustLuxe content partner iW Magazine

Citizen celebrates the 35th Anniversary of its adventure-focused Promaster collection with a new watch and a new light-powered movement.

The new Citizen Promaster Geo Trekker

The all-new Promaster Geo Trekker Eco-Drive model is a world timer and the latest model within the feature-filled Promaster series of radio-controlled watches.

Citizen debuts new Cal. H864 movement in the new watch. Named for the 86,400 seconds in one day, the new light-powered quartz movement can display times in cities across the globe.  Accurate to ±15 seconds per month, the caliber will operate for 2.5 years on a full charge (in power save mode).

To emphasize the new watch’s world time display capabilities, Citizen places an image of the Northern Hemisphere on the black and white dial within its rotating UTC disc at the 6 o’clock position. When the disc aligns with the outer ring’s list of cities, the approximate time in that Northern Hemisphere city will be visible.

Citizen has made the minute hand larger for the new watch than those found on earlier Promaster watches. The minute hand, hour hand, and indices also feature more luminescent material, enhancing night-time visibility.

Citizen has also opened up the dial design here. The watch’s new 46mm by 11.5mm case is slightly conical, which emphasizes the Promaster’s thin profile. The case back is engraved with a map of the Northern Hemisphere.

The case back is engraved with a map of the Northern Hemisphere, a unique feature for this model.

Prices: $795 (Stainless steel with partial grey-colored plating) and $850 (Stainless steel with all grey-colored plating).
