Citizen Introduces Series 8 890 in Three Distinct Colorways

Citizen is expanding its Series 8 collection with a modern and compelling sporty aquatic watch. Crafted in stainless steel, the Series 8 890 is water resistant to 200 meters; its barrel-shaped case, enhanced by a mix of polished and brushed surfaces, measures 42.6mm by 11.7mm and is equipped with an octagonal bezel.

Also polished, brushed, and beveled, the distinct bezel frames the functionally designed luminescent dial with bold markers and oversized hour and minute hands, as well as a date window at 3 o’clock. Quite stunning is the checked pattern of the dial, a motif inspired by Japanese city skylines, that create a beautiful play of light. The internal diving bezel placed on the rehaut and operated by the push-piece at 2 o’clock also adds to the highly distinguished look of the dial, which itself is protected by a sapphire crystal.

The same goes for the self-winding manufacture movement, the Citizen Caliber 9051, with its exhibition caseback; the movement operates at 4 Hz and offers an accuracy of -10 to +20 seconds per day. The Series 8 890 Mechanical is fitted with an integrated metal bracelet with H-shaped links and alternating surface finishes.

In addition to the blue version, there is limited edition of 1,700 pieces, which comes with an awesome copper dial distinguished by a texture inspired by cherry blossoms. There is also a third execution, presented in a gold-colored case paired with a gray dial.

Pricing for the new Citizen Series 8 890 is marked at $1,595 for the regular steel variant and the limited edition, and at $1,695 for the gold-colored version.

    Sabine, I was expecting this article to go into more depth of why a Citizen watch is worth the $1595/$1695 price that Citizen is charging. This is far over the typical Citizen Eco Drive watches, and only has an accuracy of -10 to +20 seconds per day. I hope you can do a follow-on article to enlighten your followers, like myself, to understand how the Series 8 890 justifies the price Citizen is asking. Perhaps, interview Citizen to convince us.
