CITIZEN PROMASTER 35th Anniversary limited edition model
NB6026-56L / JV1008-63E / JY8146-54E

CITIZEN PROMASTER was established in 1989 as a brand of watch to meet the demands of professionals active in the most challenging environments of the land, sea, and sky. The brand is celebrating its 35th anniversary in 2024. Three new 35th Anniversary limited edition models are being released from the MARINE, LAND and SKY categories, starting in June 2024. The first model to be launched is the Mechanical Diver 200m 35th Anniversary limited edition model. This model is inspired by a 1977 Challenge Diver model, nicknamed the Fujitsubo Diver, that was lost in the ocean and found years later washed up on a beach, still ticking and covered in barnacles. The design of this model was inspired by Long Reef Beach in Australia where the watch was found. The design takes inspiration from the beautiful blue ocean and the white sand of the beach with blue accents on the dial and bezel. The black aluminum ring of the bezel creates an eye-catching contrast. The case and bracelet are treated with Duratect Platinum*1, giving the metal a gleaming, almost transparent silver hue. The 35th Anniversary limited edition logo is engraved on the case back.

The movement is equipped with magnetic resistance to maintain the accuracy of the watch by reducing the effects of magnetic fields produced by smartphones and tablets. High-spec features include average daily accuracy of -10 to +20 seconds and a running time of approx. 42 hours.

※1 Duratect Platinum is CITIZEN’s proprietary surface hardening technology that enhances the surface hardness of metals such as stainless steel and titanium, protecting watch bodies from scratches and damage. This technology offers excellent abrasion quality and maintains the luster of metals for long periods of time. Platinum is a soft precious metal with Vickers hardness of 50-100 HV. CITIZEN’s proprietary surface hardening technology boosts this figure to 1,000-1,200 Hv. This treatment provides superior hardness as well as a bright, almost transparent, silver sheen to produce remarkably beautiful timepieces. (Vickers hardness of stainless steel is approx. 200 Hv).
※2 Eco-Drive is CITIZEN’s proprietary technology that powers watches using any natural or artificial light source, eliminating the need to replace batteries. A first within the watch industry, Eco-Drive was certified as an Eco Mark product by the Japan Environment Association (JEA) and recognized for its contribution to environmental sustainability. Radio-controlled watches receive signals from radio transmitters to correct the time and calendar automatically.
※3 Perpetual calendar is a fully automatic calendar control function that automatically adjusts the end of each month, including the months of a leap year, until February 28, 2100.
※4 Light-Level Indicator detects and displays the intensity of light striking the dial (which generates the electricity to run the watch) in seven levels, allowing wearers to easily gauge the charge level in any given situation.
