This Watch Houses Citizen’s First In-House Mechanical Movement Since 2010

Citizen doesn’t produce many mechanical watches these days, preferring to focus on their Eco-Drive solar quartz technology instead. But that’s changing with Citizen’s new flagship watch, The CITIZEN, which houses the Japanese brand’s first in-house mechanical movement since 2010.

The CITIZEN ref. NC0200-90E contains the brand-new Caliber 0200, which Citizen co-developed with its subsidiary, Swiss movement manufacturer la Joux-Perret. The high-end automatic movement features goodies like a free-sprung balance wheel, LIGA-fabricated escapement, and high-end finishing in a custom layout to maximize aesthetic appeal. The movement performs above chronometer specifications and will debut inside a watch that’s just as special. The CITIZEN is an en vogue integrated bracelet steel sports watch with sharp-detailed finishing that contrasts hairline brushing with mirror polishing. Its dial is matte black and finished in an electroformed sand-ripple pattern with a small-seconds complication. And topping everything off is a new Eagle logo that symbolizes how the watch is “always looking ahead and pursuing the ideal.” The CITIZEN will be available starting this fall for around $6,000.
