CITIZEN’s Eco-Drive SATELLITE WAVE – AIR, the fastest satellite synchronized watch in the world, is not only superior in design and state-of-the-art technology but also highly desirable.

Both the watches have enhanced performance with newer technologies and provocative design.”
ECO-DRIVE SATELLITE WAVE – AIR
This advanced satellite timekeeping system delivers much higher reception sensitivity and is the world's first light-powered watch with a full-metal case that receives time signals from navigation satellites. It engages atomic clocks of the closest orbital satellites circling the earth from about 20,000 kilometers above, and beams signals directly back to your watch no matter where you are. Further, this system dynamically adjusts your time so that you’ll never be out of sync. Its speed to correct the time is also the fastest among all satellite-synchronized watches.
The design of both sides of the titanium case was inspired by the streamlined structures of wings, enhancing the impression of dynamism and lightness. The dial suggests the rotating fan blades of an aircraft engine, associated with an image that suggests drawing light and satellite signals from the sky. The dial consists of three transparent layers, over which indexes, windows and hands are laid out respectively, creating an airy floating impression.
