New Eco-Drive World Time Series - For Ladies and Gentlemen

 



SINGAPORE - MediaOutReach - 19 August 2019 - Youngtravellers today are constantly moving from one time zone to another forbusiness or leisure. With New Eco-Drive World Time Series, they can globetrotwith all the major time zones on their wrist.


In 1976, CITIZEN invented the world's firstlight-powered analogue quartz watch that uses only light as a power source.This technology, now known as Eco-Drive can generate power from any lightsource -- natural, artificial or even dim light to keep watches running withoutever having to replace batteries. In other words, it is the watch that neverstops wherever you are.


The New Eco-Drive World Time Series for ladiesand gentlemen continues to push the envelope in terms of technology and design.


The Series carries a totally new movement - NewCalibre: Cal.E784 that has been specially designed for this Series. The timepiece features a totally new globe dial as well. It comes with 26 pre-set timezones -- so whether a traveller is in New York, London, Paris or Tokyo -- or anyplace really, he or she can hit the ground running. 


With just a simple manual action, time zonescan be adjusted. Once the crown is pulled and the second hand manually moved tothe target city's name position on the dial, the hour hand automatically fliesto the local time in that particular time zone. The luminous hands help readthe watch even in the dark while the sapphire crystal glass stays tough in allconditions.


Its perpetual calendar feature ensures that thecorrect date is displayed on the watch perpetually, taking into account thedifferent lengths of the months as well as leap years. The power save function isdesigned to save power when the watch is not in use. The second hand stopsautomatically to save power when the watch has been kept in a dark place for acertain period of time and it cannot generate power. However, the watch works accuratelyeven while saving power! What is more, the watch is able to run normally for 6months on a fully charged battery and for 8 months when in power save mode.


The men's watch comes with a choice ofstainless steel or leather strap. The sleek black dial combines with sharpedges and a thin, well-designed body making it very attractive to wear.


The ladies' timepiece features a mother ofpearl white dial ensconced in a 38.5mm case and is suitable to wear forprofessional meetings or social get togethers.


With sophisticated and elegant designs for bothmen and women, this affordable timepiece is the answer for those globetrotterslooking for an authentic world time watch.


As a pioneer in the field of Eco-Drive and withthe philosophy of "BETTER STARTS NOW" guidingthem, CITIZEN has set new challenges to bring forth the full potential of powergeneration using light.
