Citizen is back again in the limelight with the launch of its latest Promaster collection – Eco-Drive Satellite Wave – Air and Eco-Drive Altichron.

Speaking to the media, Mr. Katsusuke Tokura, Managing Director, Citizen Watches (India) Pvt. Ltd. said,In this fast-changing world, time is always a constraint, especially if it’s about innovation and technological advances. Citizen’s Eco-Drive Satellite Wave – Air, the fastest satellite synchronized watch in the world, is not only superior in design and state-of-the-art technology but also highly desirable. The Eco-Drive Altichron extends the model’s legendary altimeter performance and elevates the multi-functionality even higher. Both the watches have enhanced performance with newer technologies and provocative design.”

Celebrity and Bollywood actor, Mr. Vidyut Jamwal added, “I am highly privileged to have been provided the opportunity to unveil the Eco-Drive Satelite Wave – Air in India. Technologically advanced and impressive in design, ‘Eco-Drive Satellite Wave – Air’ is enchanting. Fashionable yet sophisticated, it spells elegance and power that will unravel the geek in you. I feel connected to Citizen as a brand since they are always innovating.”



This advanced satellite timekeeping system delivers much higher reception sensitivity and is the world’s first light-powered watch with a full-metal case that receives time signals from navigation satellites. It engages atomic clocks of the closest orbital satellites circling the earth from about 20,000 kilometers above, and beams signals directly back to your watch no matter where you are. Further, this system dynamically adjusts your time so that you’ll never be out of sync.




The Eco-Drive Altichron offers dual-sensor altimeter, electronic compass and unprecedented operational range from 300 meters below sea-level to an astonishing 10,000 meters in the atmosphere. At the push of a single button, ultra-precise measurement of depth, height or direction is displayed simultaneously with the time.
