The Satellite Timekeeping System allows our watches to set the correct time and date by receiving time signals from GPS satellites orbiting 20,000 kilometers above the earth.
CITIZEN not only cares about accurate timekeeping , but also about watch usability. We have developed unique algorithms to make Satellite Wave the fastest* in the world when receiving data from GPS satellites, doing so in as little as three seconds. Our Satellite Timekeeping System takes only half the time to adjust compared with models we introduced in 2011 – a testimony of our continuous and tireless work to improve our products.
Our watches contain the latest in high-speed motors for watch hands. CITIZEN’s efforts in this area of technology make the transition to the correct time stunningly beautiful and fast.
