Citizen has broken the boundaries of craftsmanship and technology yet again with the newest addition to their range of wristwatches – Satellite Wave-World Time GPS, model CC3005-85E. As the name suggests, one of the best features of this watch is its ability to show time in 27 cities in 40 time zones. All in all, in takes about twenty seconds for the watch to determine the time zone you are in and even less, only three seconds, to read your GPS location.
Citizen’s Satellite Wave-World Time GPS is incredibly accurate and even without GPS reception, it always keeps time at ±5 seconds. The watch also has a very long power saving mode and if you leave it in a dark place, it will continue to accurately show time for up to seven years. The aesthetics of the Satellite Wave-World Time GPS is another big plus. Made from brushed stainless steel, Japanese quartz and sapphire crystal, this is a very stylish, comfortable and light timepiece, weighing at only 5.6 ounces (158 grams).
Additionally, it is water resistant to 330 feet (100 metres) and it features a perpetual calendar, daylight savings time indicator, day and date and light level power indicators. Because it is powered by light, Satellite Wave-World does not need a battery. Thanks to the incorporated eco-drive technology, the charging process is quick and effortless and the watch will charge in almost any light.
The case diameter and thickness are 43.5mm and 12.7mm respectively, and the watch closes with a fold-over clasp featuring a hidden double-push button. This is the quintessential satellite watch that is both contemporary and classic, as well as timeless.
