In 2011, Citizen was the first watch brand to create a light powered satellite timekeeping watch, the Eco-Drive Satellite Wave, with capabilities of syncing to satellites in space to display accurate time anywhere in the world. Since then, the brand has focused on developing a better Eco-Drive Satellite Wave model. In 2013, Citizen introduced the Satellite Wave Air, with a three-layered dial inspired by jet engines and the first light powered satellite timekeeping watch in a full metal case. In 2014, Citizen launched the thinnest and fastest satellite watch, the Satellite Wave F100. The launch of the Satellite Wave F900 and World Time GPS in 2015 takes this technology and innovation to a new level.
The Satellite Wave-World Time GPS model includes worldwide reception, with a 3-second reception time, in 27 cities (40 time zones). One of the most significant advantages of the Satellite Wave-World Time GPS is once fully charged it will stay powered for up to 2 years. “The driving goal at Citizen is always to do things better and to make technology more accessible to everyone,” said Jeffrey Cohen, President of Citizen Watch Company of America. “This new timepiece will bring satellite technology to a broader market of watch enthusiasts.”
WHAT BLOGGERS SAY ABOUT CITIZEN SATELLITE WAVE – WORLD TIME GPS?
“Other features of the GPS signal-receiving movement are that it features the time and date on the dial, along with a day of the week indicator (it is actually a perpetual calendar). There is both a signal strength indicator and a power reserve indicator for the battery. The watch indicates the world time in up to 40 time zones with 27 reference cities, and there is a daylight savings time indicator on the dial. I am still amazed by how minimalist the dial is despite the watch doing all of that.
The Citizen Eco-Drive Satellite Wave World Time GPS F150 watch that offers a more traditional watch given what people have come to expect from Citizen as a watchmaker. The case is in steel (with IP black-coated elements) and 44mm wide. Yes, the Citizen Satellite Wave World Time GPS F150 is more conservative in its style than all the previous Citizen GPS watches, but that is what I think the collection needed in order to appeal to mass market consumer and not those looking for unique designs. Offering cool technology in a conservative product is important for brands like Citizen who sell at the volumes they do. In fact, I am just really happy that watches like the Satellite Wave F100 and F900 are around.”
“The Citizen Satellite Wave World Time GPS represents, according to the brand, “a new level” of timekeeping technology, the latest in a parade of world-firsts that includes 2013’s Satellite Wave Air (the first light-powered satellite-timekeeping watch in a full metal case), 2014’s Satellite Wave F100 (the thinnest such watch ever, with the fastest GPS reception time), and the Satellite Wave F900, launched simultaneously with the World Time GPS model at Baselworld 2015, which includes a chronograph function. The World Time GPS, which combines the record-setting reception time with the ability to receive signals worldwide, is a more affordable alternative to the F900, as it lacks a chronograph but also incorporates a perpetual calendar and a power-reserve indicator.”
