Citizen 100th Anniversary – AV0077-82E Tsuno Chrono Racer ‘Bullhead’

The Tsuno Chrono Racer.

The Japanese watchmaking giant, Citizen, celebrates its 100th anniversary this year and the festivities continue with the arrival of the 100th Anniversary Citizen Limited Edition Tsuno Chrono Racer.

As a homage to the sought after 1973 Citizen Bullhead watch, this watch presents a contemporary approach to the bullhead chronograph with its crown and pushers sitting atop the case for easy access and timekeeping in high-pressure situations.

The watch, as expected is chock full of the latest technological wonders from the engineers at Citizen and features a myriad of functions for the lucky owners.  Powering the watch is a ±15 second a month E210 Eco-Drive movement that has been hand assembled in Japan. Apart from telling the time accurately and reliably, the watch provides a 1/5 second flyback chronograph and tachymetre, alarm function and power reserve indication.

All registers and indicators are functional and legible.

Furthermore, this movement is fully powered by light making it a truly green endeavour from the brand. Eco-Drive technology is doubtlessly one of the key innovations in watchmaking and is the culmination of Citizen’s four decades of R&D towards this technology.

Going all the way with technology.
