We have prepared a review of the Citizen new watches that hit the market in March 2016.
Citizen Attesa CB3010-57L
New watches in the Attesa product line expanded the model range of prestigious
titanium watches obtaining world time and precise time synchronization functions.
- Caliber H128, solar powered (Eco-drive).
- Perpetual calendar up to 2100.
- Sapphire Crystal (anti-reflective coating).
- Titanium case and bracelet with Duratect protective coating.
- Luminophor paint on the hour and minute hands, as well as on the hour indices.
- World time and summer / winter time functions.
- Radio signal reception using the precise time signal towers in Germany, Japan, USA and China.
- Dimensions: bezel diameter – 38 mm, case with a crown width - 42 mm, case thickness - 9 mm.
- Brand technologies used to protect the watch from overheating and overcharging, hands automatic correction after shocks (Perfex).
The model case and bracelet are made of titanium with the Duratect protective
coating. Interesting polishing is applied, which combines gloss and matt surface.
The bracelet looks stylish.
The CB3010-57L bracelet differs from the other watches in the model range.
The bracelet rapid extension system is applied using a mechanism on the clasp.
Pressing the button on the clasp you can lengthen or shorten the bracelet, tri fold
adjustment and 2-mm adjustment pitch are available.
The CB3010-57L watch caliber supports radio signal reception all around the
world (Germany, Japan, China and the United States). New technology is
employed to display time zone; and the time zones are displayed on the back cover.
Convenient when using, and, in addition, the dial space is increased; and, as a
consequence, the time readability improved.
Just see an example of using the world time.
60 minutes mark stands for the Greenwich meridian (+ / - 0 hours). Note that to the
top of the 55 seconds mark there is the minus 5 hours designation. Thus, if you
need the New York time zone (-5 hours), you move the seconds hand to the 55
seconds mark, and if you come to Athens, then move the seconds hand to the 2
seconds mark (+2 hours).
Simple and easy!
The dial color is Navy blue, almost black in poor lighting and blue in bright
sunlight, but not glowing. Do not expect the color to be shining blue; many photos
in the Internet do not match reality.
The model advantage is the thin case smoothly blending with the bracelet. Thanks
to this feature the watch looks very compact and ideally fits the hand.
I would like to note that the case and bracelet quality of manufacture is perfect,
thus bringing the watch quite close to the higher price category models.
Besides, one of the advantages of the watch case, I would like to mention, is that
there are no protruding buttons at the 2 hours and 4 hours indices. Flushed buttons are used.

and elegant, precise and technologically advanced, a perfect choice for everyday use.
