To commemorate Veterans Day, Citizen launches a new Promaster Navihawk pilot watch and partners with Jump for Valor, a charitable non-profit organization that assists veterans through skydiving and aerial sports.
The new 48mm steel watch is powered by light via Citizen’s robust Eco-Drive technology and synchronizes to hyper-accurate radio-control timekeeping technology, which allows for time adjustments in twenty-six time zones.
The watch is packed with useful indicators, including a chronograph, perpetual calendar, power reserve, city time zone display, a sliding scale for measurement and a rotating navigational bezel with a compass.
The watch will be issued in three versions. One is a limited edition cased in a black ion plating ($850) and comes with a matching Citizen clock. This model, a limited edition of 1,500, features a cobalt blue gradient dial and bright orange accents.
Two additional models offer a choice between a gradient blue dial ($650) and a green dial ($695). The former is cased in traditional steel and offers silver-tone hands and red accented luminous hands and markers.
The second frames its green dial with grey ion-plated stainless steel accented with yellow highlights.
As part of its Purposeful Power campaign, Citizen will donate watches to the Jump For Valor Veterans Day event, which starts today and runs through Sunday in Suffolk, Virginia. Citizen will fund tandem jumps and one veteran to become certified to skydive. In addition, Citizen will gift a Promaster Air watch to each of the participating veterans.
