Moon-glazed sapphire crystal and a Nishijin textile band woven
with kimono-weaving techniques radiate a soft glow that dissolves
into the atmosphere. Time has never before felt so elegant.
A watch is a mechanism for keeping precise time. But time itself is inherently shapeless and nebulous. This watch uses light to unite these two contradictory elements. Everything in this watch—the technology, the glass cover, the case, the bracelet—is an expression and embodiment of light.
The look of the moon-glazed sapphire glass is inspired by the gentle glow of a fog-enshrouded moon. Applying a frosting to high-transparency sapphire glass is our way of making you aware of the rich and ever-changing nature of light.
The watch bracelet is made from Nishijin textile custom-woven by HOSOO, a centuries-old textile mill in Kyoto’s Nishijin district that is dedicated to keeping Japanese craftsmanship alive and up to date. Designed to evoke the flickering transience of light, the bracelet exudes a warm glow that seems to dissolve into the ambient air, radiating elegance within a minimalist aesthetic.
The case is made of Super TitaniumTM※ (solid titanium treated with CITIZEN’s proprietary surface-hardening technology). We made a conscious decision to use a lightweight and comfortable material that even people with sensitive skin can wear with total confidence.
※Treating solid titanium with CITIZEN’s proprietary surface-hardening technology Duratect creates Super TitaniumTM, a metal with over five times the hardness of stainless steel. Resistant to scratches, lightweight and gentle on the skin, Super TitaniumTM is a pleasure to wear.
Eco-Drive is a CITIZEN core technology that generates energy even from dim light and stores the surplus on a power cell. It is environment friendly and keeps running for over six months on a single full charge even in the dark, eliminating the need to replace batteries.
Just as plants convert light into energy through the process of photosynthesis, so Eco-Drive drives the hands of our watches. That is one of the key concepts behind the Ambiluna collection.
