Review: Citizen Eco-Drive One – how thin can you be?

Post by Racer-X » March 9th 2019, 6:30pm

"CITIZEN gives its Eco-Drive collection an ultra thinning, with their Super Titanium™ Eco-Drive One collection. The watch is super thin, super light, super hard and is completely solar powered.

The Case and Dial

Super Titanium™ is CITIZEN’s proprietary engineered material that takes solid titanium and treats it with Duratect α *5, leaving a material that is 40% lighter than stainless steel, with a surface more than five times harder. Protected by a sapphire crystal, the watch is hypoallergenic and resistant to rust, scratching and water, achieving a perfect balance between strength, sleek design and daily comfort. The watch measures 36.5 mm in diameter with a thickness of 3.53 mm. Its limited edition variant in Altic and Carbide case measures 37 mm wide and 2.98 mm thickness.

With a 1.00mm thick movement and a 2.98 mm case, Eco-Drive One is the world’s thinnest light-powered watch. The dial of Eco-Drive One is made of sapphire crystal just 150 microns thick. Possibly for light transparency, the sapphire dial allows light to pass through to the solar receptors."

Man, that watch is cool.

Is it $4500 worth of cool?

Not even close.
WatchGeeks will go down in watch forum history as the worst watch related site that existed. Trolls, threats, bannings, and owners and sponsors talking out of their collective asses to fleece people out of hard earned money. - Koimaster
