Unmistakably sporty appeal of Citizen Eco-Drive chronograph sports watches
Be it the Primo Stingray with the rotating, 360o-degree bezel and tachymeter with the 60-minute chronograph or the super accurate atomic timekeeping collection synchronized to the atomic clocks, Citizen’s Eco-Drive chronograph sports watches exude a simple, yet revolutionary philosophy. It is against ethics for a sports watch to stop due to a lack of running power when engaged in activity; more so for a chronograph for it tells you how accurate your hairsplitting decisions are. So Citizen did away with staying careful on the power part and announced Eco-Drive which, in plain words, means a watch that is independent from a pre-charged, single-use battery. Citizen’s Eco-Drive technology converts light energy into electrical energy and that light can be either natural or artificial. The Eco-Drive watches don’t consume the converted energy real time though; there’s a rechargable lithium-ion cell where it’s stored first. The Eco-Drive mechanism keeps pushing the charge on one hand while the battery drains on the other; the loss/gain ratio will maintain an ever-running watch once the battery is charged fully. This takes care of millions of watches worldwide from being left alone once the batteries get exhausted; the Eco-Drive has broken the cycle and today’s consumers are happy about it.
The Citizen Eco-Drive chronograph sports watches stand out visually with their sculpted lines in highest grade materials, which are essentially metal, polymers, ceramics and leather. They are present in every watch either singly or in combinations that add a dash of style to make these timepieces something above ordinary.
Functionally, expect to find anything between a one-second and an 1/5-second chronograph; most come with a 12/24-hour time and date alongside. Some of them are race-inspired, connecting the fast-tracks to the style highway.
All that fine mechanism of the Citizen Eco-Drive chronograph sports watches, remain well-protected against whacks, bonks and bashes; again, its the materials used that does the wonder. The crystals are hard to scratch as much as the steel cases and they flush perfectly with the bezel-tops. It gives enough peace of mind and you don’t think again of - “...getting things slightly recessed”. You can hold that pristine state for long.
But things pretty much comes down to looks with the Citizen Eco-Drive chronograph sports watches and is a huge reason behind why they sell in millions. They are sizeable, noticeable and fashionable, although many you can’t wear with dress shirts. But with polo-s, turtle-necks or even with plain tee-s, they are far from being let-downs.
A bold watch on your wrist with a lot happening on its face is pretty awesome to look at! Not just to watch freaks but to the rest, Citizen Automatic Professional Divers watches are high-tech wearable accessories which don’t look like tool-s.
