- *1. Eco-Drive is CITIZEN’s proprietary technology that powers watches using any natural or artificial light source, eliminating the need to replace batteries. Certified as an Eco Mark product for the first time in the watch industry.
- *2. Super Titanium™ is CITIZEN’s proprietary technology to treat solid titanium with CITIZEN’s proprietary surface hardening technology, Duratect. It is at least 5 times harder than stainless steel, resistant to scratches, lightweight and gentle to the skin for comfortable wearing.
- *3. Duratect is CITIZEN’s proprietary surface hardening technology developed to protect watch’s natural luster and finish beauty. By applying special processing to materials such as titanium and stainless, it increases the surface hardiness and protects the watch case and band from scratches and flaws.
- *4. Radio-controlled technology receives signals from radio stations to correct time and calendar automatically.
- *5. GPS satellite-synchronized watch captures the date and time signals sent by GPS satellites from space — orbiting 20,000 kilometers above the Earth — bringing ultra-precise timekeeping to wherever people are on the face of the globe.
- *6. Power Reserve Indicator displays the remaining power of the secondary battery used for Eco-Drive.
- *7. Light Level Indicator shows how much power the watch is generating through CITIZEN’s proprietary Eco-Drive technology.
