In Basel, Switzerland at the annual BaselWorld exhibition, Japanese watchmaker Citizen recently unveiled a new timepiece. The new timepiece is part of the Eco-Drive collection, and is being called the Eco-Drive Altichron Cirrus.
The Eco-Drive Altichron Cirrus features a round titanium case that measures 51.5mm in diameter. Nestled into this elegant case is a matte black dial with white luminescent hour markers and hands. At the 3 o’clock position is an aperture which reveals the date. The dial of the Eco-Drive Altichron Cirrus is protected with an anti-reflective sapphire crystal dome. Additionally, the Eco-Drive Altichron Cirrus is water resistant to 200 meters.
Within the Eco-Drive Altichron Cirrus beats the caliber Citizen Eco-Drive J280. This movement features a altimeter, electronic compass, power reserve indicator, and a solar charger. Sensors within the electronic compass and altimeter provide an incredibly precise reading of direction, depth, and height. This measurement is accurate up to a height of 10,000 meters and to a depth of 300 meters below sea level.
