The concept model of the eco-drive eyes was presented at the BASELWORLD watch fair 2010. The central theme of the watch represents the interaction of light and shadow.
In the eyes of eco-drive citizen technology and beauty combine with each other. The dial of the extravagant watch consists of ceramic and is Three-dimensional. White three-dimensional stroke indexes, which also consist of ceramic are used as markers. Two three-dimensional sub-dials were used on the bottom layer of the dial, which serve the display of the day of the week, as well as the display of the date. The production of eco-drive eyes takes about Eighty times as long as the production of other watches, what is owed most of the time that must be spent polishing of ceramic parts.
The body of available either in black or white eyes of eco-drive is composed of stainless steel and has a diameter of 43 mm. It houses a caliber 8676 movement and is equipped with the eco-drive technology famous for citizen. The clocks with this special technology need no battery in the traditional sense, but also have a solar cell that can be repeatedly recharged by artificial light. In the power-saving mode, the eco-drive eyes has a dark power reserve of up to six months after full charging.
The eco-drive watch of citizen, which was introduced at Basel world 2010 as a concept model, will be available in February 2013 in a limited edition of 250 pieces each per black and white version at vaultedwatches.com.
