Designed for globally active business travellers, or anyone with an eye on global business, these watches make it easy to monitor the local times of any two cities of your preference.
Radio-controlled watches automatically detect the correct time by receiving radio waves from a caesium atomic clock, which is accurate to within one second in 100 000 years. Reception areas include Japan, China, North America and Europe.
Two sets of times and dates for any of 26 world countries indicated on the watch face are displayed instantly. The wearer simply pulls the crown and selects the name of the cities with the second hand, and can then easily switch between main time and local time with just one action.
CITIZEN’s innovative timekeeping system keeps consistently accurate time in virtually any major time zone. Plus, this timepiece runs on CITIZEN’s revolutionary Eco-Drive technology, which uses any light source to power the watch, eliminating the need for a battery.
