The big release from Citizen this year is a very unusual one: an Eco-Drive wristwatch with a 1-mm-thick movement, in a case less than 3 mm thick. Making a watch this thin that works reliably and is reasonably durable takes not only cutting edge movement design, but also very careful case design. Still, 1 mm thick for the movement and 2.98 mm for the typical Citizen Eco-Drive One replica watch overall is nothing to sneeze at.
This new slim Citizen replica watch is a limited edition model with a Cermet case; the bezel is “binderless cemented carbide,” which, it seems reasonable to assume, is sintered tungsten carbide. This should make for an extremely rigid and, for all intents and purposes, scratch-proof case.
Case diameter is 38.15 mm; but the Citizen Eco-Drive One replica watch wears bigger thanks to the narrow bezel. In its own way this is a pretty head-turning watch. They’re extremely thin, obviously, but also reasonably practical, unlike many ultra thin watches.
