Japan’s Citizen of Japan acquires La Joux-Perret and Arnold & Son continues to observe its proprietary Super Titanium substance with more distinctive and reasonably priced watches. 2020 sees the debut of this mid-range-priced Super Titanium Armor watches which introduction with three versions: references CA7050-57H, CA7058-55E, and AW1660-51H. That includes the two Citizen Super Titanium Armor Chronograph watches as well as the three-hand version.
It feels like what a scientist from the Capcom video game universe of”Mega Man” would wear with a suit. The watches can also be thoroughly placed in the”incorporated bracelet” class, which is rather popular in the high-end on the planet of wristwatches. Here, Citizen Eco-Drive Replica provides its take not only in steel, but in Super Titanium, which is both 50% more scratch-resistant than steel and 40% lighter. Super Titanium is made of specially formulated titanium that’s both extra-hardened and coated to get scratch-resistance in house at Citizen. It makes for a truly amazing watch case material, in my view.
Citizen isn’t generally a master of watches with incorporated bracelets, and the Super Titanium Armor feels publication. That said, the company certainly has a long history of earning bracelets which seamlessly integrate with the circumstance. The problem is that this ends up creating watches much”more” (lug-to-lug distance), which makes for a larger wearing experience (proving a challenge to smaller wrists). I recall my first Citizen opinion that also had a sort of integrated bracelet, and even though it was just 38mm-wide, it filled my wrist. The Super Titanium Armor watches are all about 40- and 45mm-wide, respectively, between the three-hand along with chronograph versions. The Chronograph especially wears large with its roughly 56mm-long lug-to-lug space (53mm for the three-hand- version ).
