Citizen brings its colorful, automatic NJ015 ‘Tsuyosa’ collection to the United States this month, broadening the watchmaker’s domestic mechanical offerings beyond its pricier automatic Series 8  and automatic dive models.

And with each watch priced at $450, the collection (which Citizen introduced in Europe and elsewhere last year) creates Citizen’s first entry level range of steel-cased automatic watches for the U.S. market. 

Citizen brings its much-touted NJ015 Automatic ‘Tsuyosa’ collection to the United States.

The new NJ015 collection, called Tsuyosa, (Japanese for ‘strength’) is powered by Citizen’s Caliber 8210, an automatic movement with a 21,600 vph frequency and a forty-hour power reserve.

Citizen also opens up a view into the movement on each watch through a clear sapphire caseback.

Citizen is offering Tsuyosa in five sun-ray pattern dial options, including blue, yellow, green, turquoise and black, each displaying time with baton-
style indexes.

The watches even offer a magnifying date lens, which is a feature rarely seen on watches in this price range.

These are everyday-wear models. Each arrives with a moderately slim 40mm by 11.7mm brush-finished steel cases and integrated steel bracelet.

Citizen polishes the bracelet’s center links to add a bit of luxury to the contemporary styled Tsuyosa.

Price: $450.
