The embodiment of 50 years of CITIZEN titanium technology.
And a bold step into the future.
We believe in creating stronger, better-looking and more comfortable watches.
Our work with titanium over the decades has now brought us to a new milestone:
SATELLITE WAVE GPS F950,
the Super Titanium™ model which marks half a century of CITIZEN titanium technology.
This model demonstrates the best qualities of CITIZEN titanium-processing and surface-hardening technologies. It combines beautiful sculptural forms with clean lines and sharp edges, precisely calibrated two-piece case construction, and two-tone colouring using Duratect DLC and Duratect Sakura Pink. Inspired by themes of outer space and GPS satellites, its distinct design is a nod to our upcoming collaboration which will deploy Super Titanium™ in the new arena of space exploration.
It’s an unprecedented challenge. HAKUTO-R is aiming to be the world’s first-ever commercial lunar exploration programme. Super Titanium™—the material used for the SATELLITE WAVE GPS F950—will be used in the HAKUTO-R lunar lander and play a key role in the exploration of the moon’s surface. Inspired by outer space and GPS satellites, the design of SATELLITE WAVE GPS F950 embodies our hopes for Super Titanium™’s ongoing evolution as it expands into outer space. Just as humankind dreams of moving beyond earth, so CITIZEN sees innovation as an infinite and never-ending process.
The sheen, the colour, the perfect finish of every detail. It all comes down to Super Titanium™.
The watch is an object of beauty born of the processing and surface-hardening technologies unique to CITIZEN.
The two-piece case construction fits together beautifully. The whole design depends on extremely precise calculations and could only be realised thanks to the precise processing technologies CITIZEN has developed over the years.
Itself a microcosm of innovation, the Super Titanium™ body has a sculptural form whose bold edges seem themselves to be pushing the technology envelope. That same sharpness is applied uncompromisingly to every detail of the watch, from case to band.
A 50th anniversary model must look uniquely elegant. That’s why we opted to use a combination of two surface-hardening technologies: Duratect DLC and Duratect Sakura Pink. The result is rich and expressive colouration coupled with sturdy scratch resistance.
As well as featuring Satellite Wave GPS, which receives position information and a time signal from GPS satellites, this model uses Super Titanium™ for the case and band. Super Titanium™ will be deployed in two upcoming HAKUTO-R missions to the moon. With components arranged in six distinct strata, the multilayer design of the watch face evokes the infinite depths of outer space.
