High accuracy watches with light-powered Eco-Drive from Citizen

New models with hand-dyed indigo washi paper dials

CITIZEN’s The CITIZEN models provide superior precision and high quality, symbolizing the company’s never-ending pursuit of the essence of the watch. Two new models will be released from this collection featuring hand-dyed indigo washi paper on the dial. The first is equipped with the world’s most accurate light-powered movement – the Caliber 0100 Eco-Drive movement – with annual accuracy of ±1 second. The second features a high-accuracy light-powered Eco-Drive movement with annual accuracy of ±5 seconds.

*World’s most accurate watch as of February, 2022. Most accurate autonomous analogue light-powered quartz watch, based on research by Citizen Watch Co., Ltd.

Washi paper dials were first featured on The CITIZEN watches in 2017, giving our Eco-Drive models a new kind of visual appeal. The delicate Japanese paper allows light to reach the Eco-Drive movement while also providing a beautiful texture in an appealing range of colors. The dials of the newest additions to this collection feature Tosa washi paper, hand-dyed using traditional Japanese methods to achieve a deep, clear indigo color also known as “Japan blue.” This is the first time that CITIZEN has used hand-dyed indigo washi paper on its watch dials.

The Caliber 0100 model (AQ6110-10L) is powered by Eco-Drive and has an annual accuracy of ±1 second. One of the most impressive features is the perfect alignment of the second hand and indices when viewed from the front. Each detail of the design is a reminder of the groundbreaking technology inside, and the case lugs are inspired by the crystal that gives the movement its incredible high accuracy. The case is made of Super TitaniumTM*2 finished with CITIZEN’s proprietary surface hardening technology Duratect*3 Platinum that provides a bright metallic hue. The crocodile leather strap, certified by the Leather Working Group (LWG)*4, gives the watch a sophisticated, understated look while the transparent case back reveals the Caliber 0100 movement with its ruthenium plating and distinctive striped finish. The high-accuracy Eco-Drive model (AQ4091-56M) has annual accuracy of ±5 seconds, as well as a case and band made of Super TitaniumTM.

The eagle mark on the dial and crown 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.
