Citizen Eco-Drive Satellite Wave Watch Keeps Space Time

This fall, Citizen will debut a limited edition watch that’s super serious about keeping accurate time—the Eco-Drive Satellite Wave.

This next-generation timepiece searches for the closest of the 24 navigation satellites that orbit the earth. It captures the day, date and time signals the satellite emits from space, 20,000 kilometers above the earth.
Since the satellite signals are controlled by atomic clocks, this watch’s timekeeping is ultra precise. Each of the 24 navigation satellites orbits the earth once every twelve hours, so that this watch receives the signals from any open space, even in the boundless Western Pacific or atop the world’s highest peak.

As with all Eco-Drive watches, the Satellite Wave will be powered solely by light. Unfortunately, pricing, an exact release date and an exact production volume are all TBA.
