New sunrise design models to usher in new beginnings

CITIZEN Watch is launching eight new models from its CITIZEN L ARCLY collection of environmentally-conscious, sustainable watches with a sunrise-inspired design to usher in new beginnings.

Four models have a row of three glittering diamonds as a stylish decoration connecting the case with the elegant outer ring, and four minimalist models feature a coin edge design around the case as a sophisticated accent.

* Price and launch date may be subject to change.

CITIZEN L EM1090-78X

These new models take inspiration from moments that spark new beginnings, providing the wearer with a boost of energy, confidence, and strength every time they glance at their wrist.

Four models have a row of three sparkling diamonds connecting the case to the outer ring, symbolizing the first ray of light from the rising sun. The indices and minute markers are placed in a radial pattern around the dial, much like a burst of light, for superior visibility. The interchangeable strap makes it easy to swap between the metal bracelet and the apple leather*1 strap.

Four models with minimalist designs feature a coin edge bezel on the case to express the glow of the rising sun.

All of the eight new models from the ARCLY collection have a limpid blue crown that provides a stylish accent, an iconic feature exclusive to CITIZEN L watches.

Since 2016, CITIZEN L has continued to provide sustainable watches with elegant designs that reflect the beauty of our planet while upholding the brand’s commitment to caring for both people and the environment. All models are equipped with light-powered Eco-Drive*2 eliminating the need for regular battery changes, and reducing the environmental impact caused by waste batteries. CITIZEN L models use sustainable materials wherever possible as part of the brand’s efforts to produce sustainable watches that incorporate care for people and the planet.
