Citizen isn’t a brand we often cover on MONOCHROME. We don’t have anything against this Japanese production as such, be that as it may, large numbers of its watches are battery/sun based driven, which doesn’t truly comply with our article strategy – typically, as we needed to make a special case for this year’s super-noteworthy Citizen Caliber 0100 and its +/ – 1 second of the year accuracy (the most exact wristwatch ever) and for the super famous Aqualand Promaster . All things considered, we do cover the gathering consistently, since Citizen is on top of a company named Miyota, solid section level developments that are found in different Kickstarter projects. Be that as it may, what the brand needs to introduce today is 1) cool, 2) totally moderate and 3) automatic.
