Citizen Eco-Drive Satellite Wave F100 recognises 40 time zones around the world, allowing the watch to display the correct time anywhere
An exquisite design brought to life by cutting-edge technologies is the hallmark of Citizen.At this year’s BaselWorld, the brand unveiled its flagship model, the Eco-Drive Satellite Wave F100. The watch boasts of the world’s fastest satellite signal reception speed and world’s thinnest design with quicker hand movements to display the precise time anywhere in the world.
In 2011, Citizen took watch technology to new heights, launching Eco-Drive Satellite Wave, the world’s first watch capable of syncing with satellites in space to display accurate time anywhere in the world. Two years later, Eco-Drive Satellite Wave –Air debuted with a stunning full-metal case and the world’s fastest signal reception speed thanks to radically improved antennae sensitivity. Since its inception, the Eco-Drive Satellite Wave series has enjoyed accolades from around the world.
This year, the brand launched the next-generation of this revolutionary satellite-synchronised technology. Thinner and lighter, Citizen Eco-Drive Satellite Wave F100 features the world’s fastest signal reception speed and 40 time zones. Citizen has long spearheaded watchmaking innovation, and today it remains committed to pushing the boundaries of design and technology even further. The pre-eminent feature of Eco-Drive Satellite Wave F100 is speed. The watch not only achieves the world’s fastest signal reception speed of three seconds, but its satellite-inspired case and band design evoke a sense of pure speed.
To realise the world’s thinnest lightpowered satellite-synchronised watch of 12.4mm Citizen uses proprietary lightweight titanium, making this watch not only thin but also lightweight and comfortable. To complement the speedy hands movements, the brand crafted titanium into a strikingly streamlined case and band with aerospace-like metallic luster and mirror-finish texture.
Additional improvements include recognition of the 40 time zones, allowing the watch to display the correct time anywhere. The dial design is inspired by the solar panels used to power orbiting satellites. While paying homage to outer space, the hollowed push buttons design at 2 o’clock and 4 o’clock simulate the fuselage of navigational satellites.
What’s more, the watch features the world’s first Light Level Indicator for Citizen’s Eco-Drive technology. By showing the amount of electricity generated by light reflecting on the dial in seven levels, the wearer can gauge the charge level in any given situation. Accuracy of the time indication has been radically improved as well — from ±15 seconds per month to ± 5 seconds per month.
A pleasure to wear, a thrill to connect to space. All the excitement of speed and cutting-edge technology comes with this new watch.
