Citizen Alterna Pilot Eco-Drive Watch - Dynamic Design and Exemplary Functionality

Sep 01, 2010
The Japanese watch brand Citizen has provided a true delight to its faithful admirers by launching its new Alterna Pilot Eco-Drive watch.

The aesthetic appeal of this horological item lies in a clever blend of functional layout and an alluring combination of colors.
The dial catches and holds the gaze with its bright orange-painted elements, which provide a stunning contrast with the “full black” spirit of the new Citizen pilot watch.

The instrument-style display includes oversized Arabic numerals, which are easy to read even in poor light conditions. Gliding smoothly over them are broad sword-shaped steel hands, highlighted with Lumibright compound. They serve to indicate hours, minutes and seconds.

The dial is also equipped with an extra military-style 24-hour counter, located at 6 o’clock. It is joined by a counter at 9 o’clock, indicating days of the week, and a counter at 12 o’clock, presenting the current date of the month. Protecting the dial is a durable mineral crystal.

The functions described are brought to life by a high-grade quartz in-house manufactured Eco-Drive movement - Caliber 8637. It runs for about six months when it is fully charged.

The entire mechanism is housed in a black PVD-treated stainless steel case. It features the dimensions of 42.5 mm x 11.2 mm, diameter and height indicated respectively. The case of the new Alterna Pilot Eco-Drive watch is offset by a round bezel, manufactured from the same material. The watch is water-resistant up 100 meters.

A Nato-style nylon band completes the features of the new Citizen watch. The dynamic design and exemplary functionality will make the watch an instant favorite among pilots and other world travelers.
