Citizen Signature Grand Classic Automatic – NB0040-58A & NB0040-58E

It’s that time of year, when all the new introductions from Basel start trickling in to stores and today at AZ Fine Time, we are proud to announce the new release of the Citizen Signature Grand Classic Automatic collection.

This is one of very few Citizen Automatics to hit the US market.  Citizen, who owns Miyota movements, very rarely uses Miyota automatic movements in the Citizen brand for the US.  This new movement, proprietary 9010 exclusive to Citizen Signature, is above and beyond anything I have ever seen from Miyota.  The 24 jewel self-winding movement features manual wind option, hack, 28,800 bph, and 42 hr power reserve.  The rotor on the new proprietary movement swings like no other, making the self winding very efficient.  Its manual winding and second hand sweep are incredibly smooth.  I have to say, Citizen hit a home run with just this movement alone.

As with all Citizen Signatures, the movement is hand assembled and the case and bracelet are hand finished.  The finish is incredible with a nice combo of brushed and high polished throughout the case and bracelet.  The front has a dual anti-reflective coated sapphire crystal and even the case back uses sapphire crystal to show off the very impressive movement.

One of the best qualities of this piece is the price point, retailing for only $995!  This is going to make for some tough competition for the Swiss competitors for a high quality automatic timepiece at a reasonable price.
