limited edition of 700 pieces worldwide
This limited-edition model is being released to celebrate the first anniversary of the relaunch of the Series 8 collection of mechanical watches. The case with its eye-catching two-piece bezel is made of stainless steel finished with Duratect DLC*1. The all-black color scheme is pure simplicity with bold hands and indices. The dial is made of lightweight and durable carbon, the same material used in aircraft and high-performance sports cars, and a first for the Series 8 collection. This limited-edition model has other special features - it is the first Series 8 watch with a transparent case back that showcases the movement of the balance wheel and the rotor inside.
The watch also has enhanced magnetic resistance to ensure that it keeps accurate time without being affected by magnetic fields generated by smartphones, tablets, and other devices in our digital society. The high-performance movement inside achieves an average daily accuracy of -5 to +10 seconds with a running time of approximately 50 hours.
With their modern, dynamic styling, Series 8 watches suit any scene, from business occasions to casual days off. The line-up is packed with practical features including magnetic resistance to protect the watch against magnetic fields in everyday life, and the design ensures a supremely comfortable fit.

- ※1 Duratect is CITIZEN’s proprietary surface hardening technology that enhances the surface hardness of metals such as stainless steel and titanium, protecting watch bodies from scratches and damage. This technology offers excellent abrasion quality and maintains the luster of metals for long periods of time. Duratect DLC achieves Vickers hardness of 1,000-1,400 by creating an amorphous carbon hard film—mainly composed of carbon and hydrogen—on the surface of the material.
