LYNDHURST, N.J., June 1, 2015 — Citizen Watch Company of America announces the launch of a new technologically advanced satellite timepiece, the Satellite Wave-World Time GPS. Alongside its companion, the Satellite Wave F900, the Satellite Wave-World Time GPS has the fastest GPS reception time with worldwide reception.
Citizen, known for leading the industry with new technology, continues to recognize the importance of innovation and firsts. This year Citizen will powerfully build on the “Better Starts Now” brand statement with inspiring new offerings.
In 2011, Citizen was the first watch brand to create a light powered satellite timekeeping watch, the Eco-Drive Satellite Wave, with capabilities of syncing to satellites in space to display accurate time anywhere in the world. Since then, the brand has focused on developing a better Eco-Drive Satellite Wave model. In 2013, Citizen introduced the Satellite Wave Air, with a three-layered dial inspired by jet engines and the first light powered satellite timekeeping watch in a full metal case. In 2014, Citizen launched the thinnest and fastest satellite watch, the Satellite Wave F100. The launch of the Satellite Wave F900 and World Time GPS in 2015 takes this technology and innovation to a new level.
The Satellite Wave-World Time GPS model includes worldwide reception, with a 3-second reception time, in 27 cities (40 time zones). One of the most significant advantages of the Satellite Wave-World Time GPS is once fully charged it will stay powered for up to 2 years. “The driving goal at Citizen is always to do things better and to make technology more accessible to everyone,” said Jeffrey Cohen, President of Citizen Watch Company of America. “This new timepiece will bring satellite technology to a broader market of watch enthusiasts.”
Citizen Watch is a true manufacture d’horlogerie with a comprehensive manufacturing process that extends from creating a watch’s individual components to its final assembly. The company operates in more than 100 countries around the world. Since its founding in 1918, Citizen has held the belief of “Better Starts Now” — that is, No matter who you are and what you do, it is always possible to make something better, and now is the time to start doing it. Sharing this belief, we have made watches, invented and improved technologies and explored the future of watches such as our propriety light-powered technology “Eco-Drive” and state-of-the-art satellite-synchronized timekeeping.
