Global Citizen: Introducing the Series8 880 GMT (With Live Photos and Video)

The Citizen Series8 collection of mechanical watches is known for its modern and sporty looks. The Japanese watchmaker is now adding three new GMT models in stainless steel, all of them able to withstand up to 16,000 A/m. Movement is the GMT Caliber 9054, a new in-house movement that combines a 50-hour power reserve with an average accuracy of -10/+20 seconds per day, the hour hand can be independently set. 

According to Citizen, the dial pattern used for the two regular variants in stainless steel (“Pepsi” NB6030-59L and “Batman” NB6031-56E) “combines a stylized take on Tokyo’s night-time skyline with a check pattern, a much-loved Japanese motif with connotations of prosperity and success.” The limited edition (NB6032-53P, 1,300 pieces), on the other hand, “takes autumn as its theme. The twin tones of yellow gold and rose gold used for the case and bracelet evoke the turning leaves in the fall. The dial pattern – an idealized Japanese landscape glowing in the golden evening sunlight – is a motif created especially for this limited edition.”

The GMT function allows time travelers to see the time in up to three time zones with the help of the GMT hand and the bi-directional rotating bezel whose color codes make for day and night indication. The two-part construction of the middle case accentuates the different finishes on the different facets.

The Series 8 880 GMT’s case has a diameter of 41mm and offers a water-resistance of 100 meters. More photos:
