Citizen‘s latest space-age collaboration will see the Japanese watchmaker supply parts for a lunar lander made of its Super Titanium.
This second limited edition HAKUTO-Rwatch, designed in collaboration with ispace inc., features Super Titanium with Duratec DLC treatment as well as Recrystallized Titanium bezel and bracelet midlinks.
The 44mm limited edition Eco Drive watch is named after ispace inccommercial .’s lunar exploration program, which is set to launch its first mission later this year. It has the world’s fastest GPS signal reception, receiving time signals in as little as three seconds, and hour and minute hands that automatically adjust twice as fast as the previous model.
The uneven crystalline appearance in the recrystallized titanium is created by a heating and cooling process, while the lunar lander, which will include Citizen parts, is depicted on the watch’s caseback.
