CITIZEN Watch Company has announced the launch of the new limited-edition The CITIZEN Caliber 0200 mechanical model inspired by Japanese armor.
“The CITIZEN” line-up is known for its superior precision and high quality. Limited to 90 pieces worldwide, the new automatic watch comes with the high-accuracy Caliber 0200 mechanical movement, developed entirely in-house by CITIZEN.
This model features a 40mm diameter stainless steel case with a brushed finish and a black bezel made from zirconia ceramic. The hammered metal finish of the dial was created by using Electroforming. The watch comes with a strap made from Himeji Kurozan leather, created using traditional tanning and lacquering techniques. The unique textures of the monochrome elements provide an appealing look inspired by the Japanese armor.
The Caliber 0200 movement offers an average daily accuracy of -3 to +5 seconds, exceeding the chronometer standard for accuracy. This mechanical self-winding calibre is equipped with a free-sprung balance wheel to ensure greater accuracy in the long-term.
The beautiful finishing is the result of combined skills and know-how of CITIZEN and its Swiss group company Manufacture La Joux-Perret S.A. The transparent case back of the watch reveals the 22 karat gold rotor, and an eagle mark – the symbol of The CITIZEN – can be found on the dial.
