After a couple of years of being discontinued in the international market, Citizen’s beautiful and elaborately designed Campanola series will be returning to Arizona Fine Time, now with Eco-Drive technology! Previous models of Campanola were battery driven, allowing for an entire Urushi lacquer dials,which was only on a couple of models. Over the course of the last year, Citizen has finally reintroduced the Grand Complication models with Eco-Drive technology in some unique and modern designs. The previous year brought a new perpetual calendar moon phase model, of which we will be receiving one style. There’s a lot to look forward to, even though supply will be extremely limited. Let’s take a look at the new line up of Campanola.
First in this line up will be the moon phase perpetual BU0020-03B. This Eco-Drive model has a 6 month power reserve from a full charge, moon phase, day, date, month display, and the renowned beautiful burgundy lacquer that everyone loved so much in the original series of Campanola. The gold flaked urushi lacquer aspect of the dial is located in a large circle at 6:00, which also includes the moon display. The Duratect coated stainless steel case measure out at 43.5mm wide and 14.4mm thick and will retail for $3,750.
Next in the line up is the first set to utilize Eco-Drive technology in their Campanola Grand Complication series, with the hand assembled and finished G910 caliber. These more modern designed Campanola’s will be in cases 44.6mm wide by 15.9mm thick. The 1st model is the BZ0090-08E, with black clouded lacquer ranging from about the 5:00 to just past 9:00. This will come on a black crocodile leather with a grey/white contrast stitching. The retail will be $4,800 and include Citizen’s 5 year warranty.
The second in the series will be the BZ0030-08W, with a surprisingly gorgeous purple dial. Purple can be a difficult color in a mens watch, but for some reason, this shade maintains a masculine look and looks truly impressive. The same type of clouded lacquer appears in this model in purple, and the black crocodile strap has purple stitching. These pieces will have both chronograph and minute repeater modes that can easily be toggled between by holding the lower left button. The BZ0030-08W will also retail for $4,800.
A new set of Grand Complications were just released this year prior to Baselworld, using the same G910 caliber as the two models above. These styles bring back more of the traditional Campanola design, using larger roman numerals on the chapter ring of both models, in two stunning color combinations.
The BZ0030-16F will come with gold accents, not just on the dial, but also a matching color accented in the straps stitching. The lacquer used on this dial will be black urushi, with sprinkles of mother of pearl dust laid throughout. This gives a cosmic appearance, symbolizing the heavens and the strength and brightness of life born into harshness. The retail on this model is $5,000. All models of Grand Complication Eco-Drive featuring the G910 movement will have a 12 month power reserve from a full charge.
The final piece in our new line up of Campanola will be the BZ0030-16E. This model uses a black and red urushi lacquer, expressing the earth in the form of glowing magma starting to cool. There will be red roman numerals along with black crocodile strap with red stitching. The displays on these models will have day of week near the 11:00 area, leap year/chronograph hours display at 8:00, month/chronograph minutes counter at 6:00 and a 24 hour display at 3:00. The BZ0030-16E will have an MSRP of $4,900.
