Citizen will release a limited edition model of The CITIZEN that will feature a light-powered Eco-Drive movement Caliber 0100 that is not reliant on any external time signal yet has an extraordinary accuracy of ±1 second per year (hereinafter, ‘Cal.0100’).
This is the first Cal.0100 model to feature the use of washi paper in the dial. The Tosa washi paper has a beautiful colour and texture with excellent light transmission. The feather-like patterns on the dial, achieved using a technique we named Kagemakie (silhouette), are created using platinum foil and platinum powder on the lower plate and can be seen through the layers of washi paper that are positioned on top. Together they emphasize the eagle emblem with its spread wings, which is the symbol of The CITIZEN series.
The second hand is made of brass, which was too heavy to position accurately and too power-consuming to use with previous Eco-Drive movements. In this model, however, it sits beautifully—perfectly—over each second marker when viewed from above. The exquisitely cut multi-faceted surfaces of the hour and minute hands make it easy to tell the time, the lugs are made to resemble crystals to represent ultra-precision, and the overall design reflects this model’s outstanding accuracy of ±1 second per year.
The stainless steel case is treated using Duratect*3 Platinum, Citizen’s proprietary surface-hardening technology, to make it scratch resistant while maintaining a light tone, and matched with crocodile leather with a distinct mottled bamboo-like pattern to achieve an elegant, classy appearance.
The gold eagle mark is featured on both the dial and the back, while the word EAGLE and a serial number can be found on the back, setting the watch apart as a limited edition.
