1997 – Citizen

This watch (4110-57118 K 70822489 GN-4-S) appears to be in the “Citizen with Solar Cell” line. It has a shiny lack metal case with integrated matching band. Four large square solar cells make up the entire face. The hour, minute and second hand are red. The face is square but the case has a round shape.

Comment: This layout of this watch is similar to earlier “Citizen with Solar Cell” design but the design is more pleasing. The solar cells are a very prominent part of the design. The production of this watch overlapped with the early Eco-Drive models which no longer looked like solar watches. It is clear which design style won out in the market place.
