Citizen announced at the end of last year that their 2010 concept model “EYES” will become a limited edition for 2013 of only 250 pieces in white and 250 pieces in black. We just found out that AZFT will be getting our hands on this model, but so far have only confirmed the black version.
There is much artistry in the design of the EYES. From its unique case shape, crystal and even dial design, there are many attributes that make this new Eco-Drive so much more unique than anything Citizen has ever made. While I would love to get into its details now, I will have to save it for when the watch comes in.
I will say that you are starting to see a trend of Citizen’s concept models finally coming to life. With the introduction of the Satellite Wave and now the EYES, who knows which model will they introduce next. Maybe the Nova?? While I don’t think we’ll see anything else new concept wise at Basel World 2013, I am sure Citizen has a wide variety of new introductions that will be very intriguing.
As far as the EYES models go… There apparently only a few to come to the US, and AZ Fine Time is proud to have access. The retail is going to be around $4,700 for either style. Stay tuned to the blog for an in depth review on these concepts brought to life.
I hope you enjoyed the sneak peak of what will be coming soon. If you have any questions, please feel free to call us at 1-800-486-3996. Thanks for reading!
Check out the videos from Citizen JP…
Recently, Orient announced 3 new variations of Pro Saturation Diver. There was a black dial that looks almost identical to the CFD0C001B, and there are 2 new colors, red and white. Today we will be featuring the 2 new colors, to show how cool these pieces really look. While the camera just can’t do them justice, we certainly try…
While these new models are essentially the same as CFD0C001B (which we already reviewed HERE), there is only one difference I had noticed to really talk about. On Orient Japan, they do state that it is a ceramic coating utilized on the bezel (which I did not see on the old version). While I do not have exact info on durability, I am sure that this helps improve the scratch resistance as compared to the older model.
I think these colors are a perfect fit for the new Pro Saturation Divers SEL02003W and SEL02003H. The red is vibrant, but not overbearing. The white is almost a slightly off white or cream color. While it is not pure bright white, I think it is a perfect shade and is very attractive. The attribute I love about both models is the black chapter ring. As small as it is, I think it adds much to the watch that would be lost if it wasn’t there. The dial is very deep, and I think the black chapter ring makes that even more clear in these pieces.
We’re loving the Orient collection here at AZFT. This is just another example of their tremendous quality for the money. If you have any questions, please feel free to call us at 1-800-486-3996.
