Many years before the artificial satellites associated with your watch, atomic clocks did. It was called Atomic Time-keeping then. Radio-Controlled is the technical term and through the decades; it got established as one of the core technologies Citizen is based upon, other than Eco-Drive and Satellite-Wave. Imagine: An antenna built into a ceramic watch case!
A watch might be about its entire package, still, some hold the aesthetics most important while others probe deep inside, to every component that makes it work. A watch with its own movement is always held in high regards. With a proper dress-up, things come alive virtually without any effort. An automatic that endured Citizen

Those that get moving from stop (after running for some time) and give us the advantage of finding back the time we apparently lost; we call them the split-time chronographs. Chronographs: Nothing hair-splitting about it The magic of chronographs is eternal! It’s for many among us. It measures for us the passage of time upon
The Citizen Pro-Master series proves that functional watches can also be fun, even for wearers who are not professionally attached to hazardous endeavors. All are powered by the Eco-Drive technology, proprietary to Citizen. It also means that no battery change to crack the factory seal (and the atmosphere trapped within) and compromise about its functional
Chronographs, so far, have stood their ground as the world’s most commonly available complications and inspired many to build huge collections out of them. On one hand there are super-complex, classic or absolutely futuristic chronographs like the AGENGRAPHE, FOUDROYANTE and the RATTRAPANTE (DOPPELCHRONOGRAPH) and super simple dress-chronos that don’t even offer a tachymeter scale (not
