CITIZEN SATELLITE WAVE -GPS watches feature Satellite Wave function. Satellite Wave captures position data and a time signal from GPS satellites orbiting in space to automatically adjust time and date. Your GPS watch will display the precise time wherever you are on Earth, as long as there is open sky above you.

Satellite Wave needs as little as 3 seconds to receive a time signal only. In addition, it can work out your current position in a minimum of 30 seconds by linking to at least four satellites to capture both a position data and time signal. Satellite Wave now connects to Japan’s new Michibiki Quasi-Zenith Satellite System.

Easy to operate and offering two different situation-appropriate reception options, the CITIZEN GPS watch experience is seamless and fun. Welcome to the world of the CITIZEN SATELLITE WAVE –GPS watch.

Eco-Drive is a CITIZEN proprietary technology that converts sunlight and dim indoor light into energy to drive a watch while storing the surplus power in a lithium-ion cell. When fully charged, Eco-Drive runs for a long time even in darkness, making regular battery replacement a thing of the past.

  • SATELLITE WAVE
    World’s fastest satellite signal reception as little as 3 seconds
  • High-speed Dual Time Display function
  • Super Titanium™
  • Light-Level Indicator
  • Accurate to plus or minus  five seconds per month (when not receiving)
  • Day Date

As of May 2015, for a multifunctional light-powered GPS satellite-synchronised watch, according to research by CITIZEN WATCH CO., LTD.

We created a watch just 12 mm thin. The body is so light you can actually forget that you’re wearing it. But it’s about more than just style; we also included the functions you need to get the full thrill of the GPS experience.

The calendar function displays day and date. It’s very useful for when you go on trips that take you across the international date line. A perpetual calendar means no need to worry about the varying length of the month of February in leap years until February 28, 2100.

Measures the light is falling on the watch face and displays the amount of electricity being generated in seven levels. Instantly see how much power your watch is generating.

Even when not receiving satellite time, CITIZEN’s ultra-precise auto-correction mechanism maintains a high level of accuracy. The most essential function of a watch is present at the highest level.

By applying multifaceted cutting techniques to the indexes and using parts made from different metals, we created dials that are as three-dimensional as they are luxurious.

To capture a time signal from a GPS satellite can take as little as 3 seconds. Not only does CITIZEN’s proprietary reception algorithm deliver faster signal reception speed, but our powerful new high-speed twin-coil motor drives the watch hands of our multifunction models smoothly and fast, stopping them at precisely the right time in the blink of an eye.

This high-performance motor system enables the hands to rotate at the identical high speed both clockwise and anticlockwise. The hands move so fast that using CITIZEN’s Dual Time Display function to reset the time becomes a positive pleasure.

The World Time function has coverage of all 40 of the world’s time zones. With the Dual Time Display function, it’s easy to set up the ‘home time’ and ‘local time’ for two different places, and operation is simple and intuitive. That’s high-speed performance. This is a simplified time zone map.
Actual time zones may differ slightly.

Just push the 2 o’clock and 4 o’clock buttons together to switch the ‘home time’ and the ‘local time’ around.

CITIZEN worked on miniaturising the movement and making the watchcase slimmer. As a result, these watches—despite featuring cutting-edge technology and numerous functions—are roughly 14% thinner than our previous multifunction satellite-synchronised models . You’ll sense the difference the moment you strap one onto your wrist. It just feels and looks so right.

Titanium has excellent natural properties: it is light, gentle on the skin and resistant to rust. A pioneer in titanium processing, CITIZEN made the creation of beautiful mirror finishes and sharp edges possible. We also applied our proprietary surface-hardening technology, Duratect, to solid titanium to achieve over five times the hardness of stainless steel (or over HV1000 on the Vickers scale). In this way, titanium became Super Titanium™. Startlingly light—it is approximately 40% lighter than stainless steel—and strong enough to resist everyday scratches and scrapes, Super Titanium™ retains its beautiful original sheen forever.

This global limited edition doesn’t just feature all the functions that embody CITIZEN’s concept of high speed, it is also made from lightweight Super Titanium™. Enjoy its elegant forms and its futuristic design. Everything about it says, ‘Speed, speed, speed.’

We have achieved an unprecedented level of hardness by combining our gas-hardening technology (Duratect MRK) with our surface-hardening technologies (Duratect DLC and Duratect α).
Model on left: Duratect DLC/MRK (HV1000–1400 on the Vickers hardness scale)
Model on the right: Duratect α/MRK (HV2200–2500 on the Vickers hardness scale)
