Citizen automatic watches - On Review the Citizen Eco-Drive Skyhawk A-T

The Citizen Eco-Drive Skyhawk A-T is a truly space age, future proof automatic watch. If you want a watch that has a James Bond meets Ironman design and functionality, the Citizen Eco-Drive Skyhawk A-T from the Citizen automatic watches collection, fits the bill to perfection.

To start with, the case of the Citizen Skyhawk A-T is pure Titanium and though we don't advocate you trying it, will probably survive even a Russian tank rolling over it. It is powered by Citizen's famous Eco-drive technology, meaning it generates electrical energy from any available light source and once fully powered, will continue to function up to a month in no light source conditions. Thinking of flying to the moon? No problems!

A technologically superior watch amongst the Citizen automatic watch, the Citizen Eco-Drive Skyhawk A-T has a radio control feature that enables it to automatically sync with the nearest atomic clock. Once it comes within range of any public broadcast atomic clock, the Citizen Eco-Drive Skyhawk A-T will automatically correct itself so the time it displays is as accurate as the atomic clock. The sync with the atomic clock is carried out daily three times a day at 0200, 0300 or 0400 Hrs. It also comes equipped with a manual sync feature so if you are passing through a location that has an atomic clock, you can manually sync your citizen eco-drive watch Skyhawk A-T to it.

The atomic sync does not mean the watch is inaccurate and needs daily assistance - far from it. If you live in an area that has no atomic clock, your Citizen Eco-Drive Skyhawk A-T will still keep perfect time thanks to the highly accurate quartz movement. The automated radio or manually controlled sync with the atomic clock merely makes it amazingly accurate.


The World traveller will especially appreciate the citizen eco-drive watch because it also has a secondary time that can be set differently from the main clock. So, if you are flying to say Tokyo, you could set the secondary clock to Japanese time. And just so there is no confusion, there is a LCD panel at the 9'Oclock position that displays the time zone of the main clock while the LCD panel at the 3'Oclock position displays the time and time zone of the secondary clock. Thinking of spending many months in Tokyo and want Japanese time displayed on the main dial? No problem because you can even swap the first time zone with the second - amazing isn't it? Again, just so you can touch base anytime you want, there is even a sub-dial at the 12'Oclock position that displays UTC time. This Citizen automatic watch takes convenience to a whole new level.

A World traveller would be lost without his or her alarms. Travelling through different time zones makes it difficult to sleep and get up on time. Important meetings could be missed. The citizen skyhawk eco drive A-T comes equipped with two alarms - one for each time zone. Need to call home daily at 1700 hrs? No problem.

Lots of travellers make it a point to jog whenever they can - quite often, it is the only exercise they get. This particular Citizens automatic watch comes equipped with a chronograph that has a 1/100 second stop watch. Need to time something? The stop watch can measure time up to 24 hours and also has a minute countdown timer.

The Citizen Eco-Drive Skyhawk A-T is one amazing watch. Buy it for yourself or gift it. It is a beautiful space age watch.
