The Red Arrows are the world-renowned aerobatic display team and ambassadors of the Royal Airforce. Since the team was officially formed in 1965, they have completed over 4,500 displays in 54 countries. The Red Arrows’ reputation is built on commitment and professionalism, combined with high precision performance, unrivalled skill, passion and equipment. It is these qualities that make the Red Arrows perfect long-term partners of Citizen.
This year, Citizen is proud to present its Limited Edition Red Arrows World Perpetual A.T timepiece, a watch that certainly meets the demands of today’s active man. This timepiece keeps incredibly precise time, thanks to its Atomic Timekeeping Technology, which keeps your watch accurate to under 1 second by connecting to the Atomic Clock via radio waves in order to transmit the exact time to your watch.
Despite its flying connotations, this is the ideal watch for the businessman on the go. It has a rotating slide rule bezel, a perpetual calendar and a world-timer that you can set to any one of 26 cities. This is all fuelled by Citizen’s Eco-Drive technology that uses light, any light, to keep the watch ticking and so never needs a battery change.
The partnership with the Red Arrows is acknowledged by inclusion of the display team’s logo on the dial at 6 o’clock and its ‘Diamond Nine’ motif, which is laser engraved on the caseback, along with the number of the watch, out of 1000.
If you want to take this out of the relative safety of the boardroom you can. Its Super Titanium™ case and bracelet, made from applying Citizen’s surface-hardening technology, its sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating and being water-resistant to 200m, means this watch is super light and resilient and more than up to roughing it in the Great Outdoors.
Citizen’s RAF Red Arrows Limited Edition is a smart looking, multifaceted watch that is unlimited in its functionality, making it ideal for even the most discerning of men. Available in September – RRP £499
