Citizen Has a ton of great new introductions this year. While there are far too many to cover in one post, we’ll get started with some of the core products we’ll see by this fall, some of which are already shipping.
One of the most exciting pieces is going to the the new Citizen Eco-Drive Promaster Altichron. There will be 2 core models available BN5030-06E (Titanium) and BN5035-02F (black coated). The primary functions on the Altichron are going to be analog display altimeter and compass. The Altimeter on this style can read up to as low as -300m and as high as 10,000m. Both functions can be ran simultaneously with the time keeping. MSRP should be $850 and $995.
The core Altichron is not to be confused with the Altichron – Cirrus which was on display at the Basel World Fair. The BN4034-01E will be a limited edition and the BN4035-08E will be a production model. They are slightly larger than the regular Altichron, have their new liquid rubber strap and will actually be released in 2014.
Another addition to the Promaster series will be a new Depth Meter Diver. The new BJ2128-05E is set to retail at $695 and actually just delivered to AZ Fine Time. This cool new style is hard to pass up for the money.
With the tremendous popularity of the World Perpetual AT and World Chronograph models, Citizen has now introduced the World Time AT, which will come in a wide variety of styles including the AT9010-52E (pictured), 2 limited editions AT9015-08E and AT9010-28F in black and orange, a new Eli Manning Limited Edition AT9010-52M, as well as a couple of regular production models with gold accents AT9016-56H and AT9013-03H. The coolest feature of this model is that you can actually toggle between 2 timezones by pushing both pushers at the same time. Obviously, these will be radio controlled and have the easy adjustment of timezones by pulling out the crown one click and turning to the desired location. Also, Citizen will be releasing a ladies radio controlled version of this watch which will be an FC0000 series.
There are some other great additions to the Citizen line up including, 2 rose gold and chocolate colored Perpetual Chrono A-T 2 new versions of Nighthawk with blue dials, and an onslaught of other awesome products.
Of course, don’t forget, there will be more on the new Satellite Wave – Air (which I recently had an opportunity to try hands on (fully functioning review coming soon), The Citizen Eco-Drive EYES, Eco-Drive Ring, and a whole lot more. Stay tuned to AZFT for more…
