CITIZEN PROMASTER Mechanical Diver 200m, References NB6021-17E and NB6021-68L

CITIZEN presents a new series of PROMASTER Mechanical Diver watches inspired by a barnacle-covered 1977 Challenge Diver found on an Australian beach.

In 1983, a Challenge Diver was found on Long Reef Beach in Australia. The watch was covered in barnacles after being submerged in the Pacific Ocean, but the movement inside had remained protected from the seawater and was still serviceable. The new PROMASTER Mechanical Diver models take design cues from the original Challenge Diver design, but their external features and the movement inside have been updated for contemporary use.

CITIZEN PROMASTER Mechanical Diver 200m

The sapphire glass has a flat cut top and a domed underside, and the sides of the glass are beveled to provide a chunky, retro look. The watches have a guard-less crown design, and the 41.0 mm diameter is the same as the original model. The case is made of lightweight, scratch-resistant Super Titanium™, and is thinner than the original model to ensure a more comfortable fit on the wrist.

The Cal. 9051 movement in this model uses anti-magnetic materials for the balance spring and surrounding components to boost the magnetic resistance of the watch. It maintains its performance even when placed 1 centimeter from a device emitting a magnetic field of 16,000 A/m. In addition to being resistant to magnetic fields, the watches are also ISO compliant diver’s watches up to 200 meters. They can run for 42 hours when fully wound, with daily accuracy of -10 to +20 seconds.

CITIZEN PROMASTER Eco-Drive Diver 200m Limited Edition Model BN0225-04L

CITIZEN’s new limited edition PROMASTER Eco-Drive Diver 200m watch is a tribute to the endangered whale shark. This new model is a limited-edition of 5,000 pieces worldwide.

The design of this model was inspired by whale sharks that can be found in plankton-rich, temperate seas near the equator. The dial and bezel feature a beautiful deep blue color evoking the ocean, and the pattern on the dial is inspired by the unique spot patterns on each whale shark’s back.

CITIZEN PROMASTER Eco-Drive Diver 200m Limited Edition Model BN0225-04L

The case design is inspired by the iconic 1982 Professional Diver which had the highest depth rating in the world – pressure resistance up to 1,300 meters – at the time of its release. The lug-less case silhouette, the four bezel guards, and the large indentations on the rotating bezel give the watch a bold, distinctive look.

The new PROMASTER Eco-Drive Diver 200m also features a sandblasted finish to recreate the distinctive rugged look of the original model. The massive 45.8mm diameter case is made from Super Titanium™ finished with CITIZEN’s proprietary Duratect MRK and Duratect DLC surface hardening technology, making it resistant to scuffs and scratches.

CITIZEN Mechanical (with in-house Caliber 0200 movement)

Launching in 2021, the CITIZEN mechanical model houses the newly-developed Caliber 0200, a completely new movement developed entirely in-house by CITIZEN. The Cal. 0200 is CITIZEN’s first new mechanical movement since 2010. This new movement has the same free-sprung balance wheel used in high-accuracy mechanical watches to ensure greater stability of rate.

A new movement, a new fusion of Japanese and Swiss watchmaking cultures, was developed in close collaboration with CITIZEN’s Swiss group company Manufacture La Joux-Perret S.A.

The new Cal. 0200 also combines a high level of accuracy and aesthetic appeal. Using the latest in advanced watchmaking technologies, this movement was designed to exceed the Chronometer standard (ISO 3159) benchmark for timekeeping accuracy, achieving an average daily accuracy of -3 to +5 seconds. The movement also features a free-sprung balance wheel, making it highly shock resistant as well as resistant to wear over time.

CITIZEN Mechanical (with in-house Caliber 0200 movement)

Watches with free-sprung balance wheels are known for their ability to maintain stability of rate over time. The layout showcases the layered wheels of the movement and shows each of the watch components to advantage. Every component is finished to the highest of standards, enhancing the overall beauty of the movement.

A free sprung-balance wheel is used to achieve high timekeeping accuracy and ensure the stability of rate over time. But the components needed to achieve this level of accuracy require an extremely high level of precision during manufacturing. CITIZEN developed a completely new manufacturing process for the balance wheel to ensure the necessary precision during processing and the exceptional beauty of the finished product.

The LIGA fabrication process was used for the escapement to achieve superior precision. This movement is the product of CITIZEN’s knowledge and know-how acquired from decades of experience producing components for Eco-Drive movements.

Before attaching the bracelet, completed watches undergo rigorous in-house testing over a total of 17 days to ensure superior performance. Testing is carried out under various conditions, including testing at six positions and three temperature levels. A Certificate of Compliance is included with each watch to certify that it has met all of CITIZEN’s extremely high standards.

The design of the Cal. 0200 movement showcases the aesthetic appeal and exceptional finishing of each component. The decorative finishing of all gear train components including the oscillating weight, the main plate, and the bridges, is made possible thanks to the combined know-how and experience of CITIZEN and La Joux-Perret, which has been a part of Citizen Watch Group since 2012.

The bridges have a satin-finish comprised of a multitude of hairlines that create a delicate lustre. The detailed diamond-cut finish on the edges also provides a striking contrast of finishes, producing depth and visual appeal.

The watch has a bold, clean look, reflecting CITIZEN’s forward-looking approach. The lug less case creates a distinctive silhouette and the finishing makes the most of the solid stainless steel material, with a striking contrast between the hairline and mirror finishes. When worn, the case and bracelet capture the light beautifully, producing an elegant lustre and giving the watch an unmistakable presence on the wrist.

The matte black dial of the NC0200-90E uses electroforming to create a distinctive sand-ripple pattern. The shadows created by the unique texture produce fascinating yet subtle colour changes on the monotone dial. The dial also features the Eagle Mark depicting an eagle with its wings spread wide.

CITIZEN CAMPANOLA Collection – New Watch Models Featuring Traditional Japanese “Urushi” Lacquer Dials

CITIZEN has created two new watches from their CAMPANOLA Collection – Chiyo-no toboshi and Hoshi-no-shizuku – featuring a traditional Japanese “Urushi” lacquerware dials created by master artisans.

 “Chiyo-no-toboshi ” is an old Japanese word meaning thousands of night lights. When viewed from outer space, the Earth is illuminated by a multitude of lights. These lights represent individual people’s lives, lit up like the stars. The dial of Chiyo-no-toboshi evokes this nightscape using large and small particles of gold powders over a jet-black background with an accent of delicate shell inlay.

By featuring a self-winding mechanical La Joux-Perret movement, the watch exhibits a new level of excellence and beauty realized by merging Japanese traditional craftsmanship and Swiss watchmaking at the highest level.

 “Hoshi-no-shizuku” means dewdrops of stars. The dome-shaped sapphire crystal glass of the Hoshi-no-shizuku appears to contain a mysterious and quiet Japanese garden at night.

The moon and stars are reflected on the surface of water bowl. Dewdrops falling onto the water’s surface cause ripples, making the reflection of the moon and stars waver. The rich “Urushi” lacquerware work enhances the feeling of depth, while mother-of-pearl placed at the 10 o’clock position suggests the moon shimmering on the surface of water. Patterns simulating light are engraved on the mother-of-pearl to make it more expressive.

The Milky Way is represented by delicate shell inlay on a background of black lacquer. A minute repeater that was originally developed to inform the time by sound in the darkness offers the original sound inspired by Suiginkutsu, sophisticated accent of Japanese garden. It tells the time with rich yet transparent sound similar to dewdrops falling.

CITIZEN PROMASTER Eco-Drive Professional Diver 1000m, Ref. BN7020-09E: The World’s First Light-Powered Watch for 1,000m Saturation Diving

The Eco-Drive Professional Diver 1000m by CITIZEN is an ISO compliant diver’s watch that can performs even in saturation diving environment. The escape valve set at 10o’clock on the case side releases the helium gas that enters the watch during saturation diving to prevent any damage or rupture upon the movement.

There is no need for regular battery replacement thanks to the Eco-Drive technology. The Power Reserve Indicator tells divers the remaining battery charge so that they can enjoy diving worry free.

To achieve an even higher practical functionality, CITIZEN conducted validation and vilification testing with cooperation of JAMSTEC(Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology), the ocean research authority in Japan, to conduct a leak test and examine the effects of high water pressure to check waterproof performance in a high-pressure environment as well the dial visibility, and luminous features in deep waters.

The bezel of the PROMASTER is made unidirectional in line with the ISO standard for diving watches. This improves safety by eliminating the danger of a diver accidentally turning the bezel the wrong way during a dive. The Eco-Drive Professional Diver 1000m model is equipped with a bezel-locking mechanism.

PROMASTER’s photo-luminescent markings absorb lightfast and stay bright for a long time. A generous proportion of the hands is coated in luminous material and tested a range of colours before selecting the most visible ones. The luminous materials used for this model has more than twice the afterglow brightness than a conventional material even after 5 hours.

When the bezel lock is set to FREE, the orange warning colour is appeared to warn the user. The crown also has a same mechanism, revealing an orange colour between the case and the crown to tell the owner when the crown is not correctly pushed into a lock mode.

A diver’s watch that performs with 1,000m saturation diving must not only pass the water resistance test, but also a test to keep performing for 15 days in a pressurized chamber that contains helium and oxygen or even 100% helium gas and then revert back to atmospheric pressure within 3 minutes after high-speed decompression. The pressure is an unimaginable 125 barometer which demands high durability and water resistance function. This is a world’s first as a light powered watch.

CITZEN’s proprietary titanium material, Super Titanium™ has various surface-hardening technology which is expertly used to offer the functions required for each of the parts to collectively achieve a robust surface finish. In order for the adjoining sections of the parts to also withstand the water pressure at 1,000 metres depth, we applied one of the hardening technology, “Duratect MRK” to the case when parts like the crown tube and the escape valve tube were already in place, we bonded the individual components to the case at the atomic level to achieve a higher level of adhesion.(The technical name for the process is “solid phase diffusion bonding.”) The result was not just a tougher case surface, but durability capable of withstanding 1,000 metres of water pressure.

The Eco-Drive Professional Diver 1000m takes its design inspiration from the shape and structure of a turbine shell. The durability and power of this shell case design was tested to the limits in successfully producing a professional grade light powered dive watch with water tight fit to 1000 metres.

The hardness of the shell comes from its brick structure which was reflected to the case side. The spiral structure of a turban shell gives the directional design to the bezel which is not simply an iconic design but functions as a way to intuitively inform the direction of the bezel.

CITIZEN L New Models

During Baselworld Fair, Japanese watch maker CITIZEN has released two new models from the CITIZEN L, a collection dedicated to stylish women. The first model is from the Ambiluna collection—in its second year, the new Ambiluna features a limited colour to the lacquer-made Urushi-drop and comes with a special bangle. The second model is playful yet elegant design with large diamonds.

CITIZEN L is a ladies’ watch brand from CITIZEN which launched in Europe and North America in 2012 and now available in nearly 50 countries globally. CITIZEN proposes a new style of luxury watch for women who embrace their lives in the 21st century with beauty and power, having Yoshiko Ikoma as the brand advisor since 2016. Featuring Eco-Drive movement which keeps the watch ticking with any light source, anywhere in the world, all CITIZEN L watches produce no battery waste which is one of the many ways CITIZEN is working to create products that are socially and environmentally conscious. CITIZEN L is a new lady’s watch brand that has the attractive jewelry-like design and features light-powered Eco-Drive, based on CITIZEN’s ethical product making.

First Model, Ambiluna
The architect of limited edition Ambiluna, Mr. Sou Fujimoto, recognized for his novel approach to architecture embodied in various global projects, continues to oversee the brand as its advisor.

Design theme of Ambiluna, moon-glazed sapphire crystal, expressing the absolute light: “Absolute light,” – a concept proposed by the architect, Sou Fujimoto. It is a new design-led approach to watch that tells the concept of ambiguous time with the transience of light. The key feature is the moon-glazed sapphire crystal that takes its image from a soft and misty moon light. The rich expression of the gradual shift in the light is created by frosting a highly-translucent sapphire crystal. It is an entirely new concept in watches where it is not a tool to check time but to put on light itself. This moon-glazed sapphire crystal is featured in all Ambiluna models.

The distinctive motif at the 11 o’clock position is Urushi drops, a modern rendition of Japanese tradition of lacquer art of Urushi which is carefully crafted by time honored “Urushi Sakamoto.” The exquisite gradation of silver to black that extends inwards gives it a chic yet deep radiance in the light, like “Starry clouds”. By applying black colour to the design, the designer want to highlight the presence of shadow that in fact accentuates light, hence the design concept “absolute light” is more highlighted. A single diamond is set between the case and Urushi drop, giving a beautiful tension in the design while functioning as an index to show 12 o’clock.

Special bangle: “Ring of Light” – This special bangle is designed for CITIZEN L by the artist duo, “MONOCIRCUS.”  Inspired from the theme, “absolute light”, the design aimed to give shape to rings of light.  The 3D printer-based design allowed the freedom for a complex geometric shape, giving the bangle a unique appeal.

Second Model
Like an oasis that breathes life into a bare land, the large diamond piece sits between the case bezel and the surrounding ring which rotates itself as it freely moves like an arc giving off that iconic glow. 4 other diamonds are embedded onto the super-translucent sapphire crystal, conceiving a beautiful 4-diamond layer with those placed on the dial.  Together they conjure an image of water and vivacious bubbles welling up from earth.
