Large, feature heavy and incredibly technical, this new Navihawk A.T. watch from Citizen is a limited edition paying tribute to the RAF Red Arrows aerial display team. It delivers all the functionality of its sister models with the addition of subtle red engraved accents on the dial.
The complex and technology-infused time instrument will offer to its owner a chronograph function, an alarm, a backlight for enhanced visibility in darker conditions as well as a perpetual calendar. The watch also has radio-controlled atomic clock synchronization as well as a pilot’s rotating slide rule dial ring, and a world-timer that can be set for up to 43 cities.
The beefy 48mm stainless steel watch, water resistant to 200 meters, has sapphire crystal glass with an anti-reflective finish. The watch is complete with an RAF Red Arrows limited edition insignia engraved on the case back whilst its official logo appears on the dial. It fastens with a sturdy mesh bracelet strap and a deployment clasp. As with other Promasters, the Navihawk A.T. uses Eco-Drive technology to keep the battery charged forever.
The watch retails in the UK at £569 and only 5000 pieces are available.
About The Red Arrows
Formed in 1964, the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Display team, known as the Red Arrows, are widely considered to be one of the world’s best aerobatic display teams. They are famous for their perfectly synchronized Diamond Nine Formation. Since 1966, the team has had nine display pilots each year, all volunteers. Pilots must have completed one or more operational tours on a fast jet such as the Tornado, Harrier, or Typhoon, have accumulated at least 1,500 flying hours, and have been assessed as above average in their operational role to be eligible. Even then, more than ten pilots apply for each place on the team.
