The CITIZEN watches, created as part of CITIZEN’s pursuit of the essence of the watch, provide both superior quality and outstanding accuracy. A limited-edition model, to be launched on August 2023, features the high-accuracy Caliber 0200 (Cal. 0200) mechanical movement, developed in-house by CITIZEN.
The CITIZEN Mechanical Caliber 0200 Limited edition of 200 pieces worldwide
This new limited-edition The CITIZEN model, powered by a Cal. 0200 in-house mechanical movement, features a beautiful pure white dial.
The Caliber 0200 movement combines both aesthetic appeal and an average daily accuracy of -3 to +5 seconds, exceeding the chronometer standard for accuracy, and it has a free-sprung balance wheel to ensure greater accuracy in the long-term.
This limited-edition model has a beautiful black bezel inset into the case made from zirconia ceramic, a material known for its durability and hardness, combined with a textured white dial created by electroforming. The combination of the pure white dial, the deep black brushed bezel, and the Himeji Kurozan leather band with its deep, lustrous finish creates an appealing contrast between softness and hardness, enhancing the beauty of the entire watch. The Himeji Kurozan leather on the band is also known as “black diamond leather.” It is created using a method that fuses traditional tanning and lacquering techniques, giving cow leather a lustrous finish that brings to mind the glitter of countless diamond fragments. Just as the exterior of the watch evokes the superior accuracy and aesthetic appeal of the mechanical movement inside, the watch itself provides quiet reassurance of the inner strength of everyone who wears it.
The transparent case back reveals the 22-karat gold rotor, and an eagle mark - the symbol of The CITIZEN - can be found on both the dial and the rotor. The eagle mark symbolizes the twin ideals of The CITIZEN - foresight and dedication to the pursuit of ideals as well as the enduring connection between watch and wearer.
