Citizen Series 8 NB6010-81E
Presenting the Citizen NB6010-81E, a testament to Citizen's unwavering commitment to Japanese watchmaking excellence. This offering bridges the gap between Citizen's entry-level models and their most premium creations, introducing the Series 8 collection - a range of sporty automatic timepieces known for their sleek case design and mechanical prowess.
Citizen describes the Series 8 collection as a redefinition of the sports watch, symbolized by the figure 8 turned on its side, signifying infinity - an ode to infinite possibilities. The Citizen Series 8 Automatic Black Ref. NB6010-81E embodies this concept with a meticulously designed 40mm stainless steel case, characterized by clean, sharp lines that exude sophistication. With a lug-to-lug distance of 49mm and a svelte 10mm thickness, this timepiece offers a superb wrist presence while maintaining an elegant profile.
Crafted with a keen eye for detail, the case boasts a primarily brushed finish, complemented by polished accents on the lugs and bezel, enhancing its sporty aesthetics. The 20mm steel H-link bracelet carries the same level of craftsmanship, featuring a brushed finish that smoothly articulates to embrace the wrist, capturing the light from various angles.
The Citizen Series 8 Automatic Black Ref. NB6010-81E celebrates simplicity with its deep glossy black dial, impeccably organized and free from unnecessary clutter. The faceted luminous-filled hands and applied baton hour markers ensure legibility at a glance. A discreet date complication at 3 o'clock maintains the dial's uniformity, creating an inviting visual harmony. Safeguarded by impact and shatter-resistant sapphire glass with anti-reflective treatment, the dial remains crystal clear.
Powering this timepiece is Citizen's in-house Cal. 9051 automatic movement, a member of the robust 90-series of movements, introduced alongside the Series 8 lineup. Impressively, this 24-jewel movement exhibits enhanced magnetic resistance, thanks to non-metallic alloy components in its hairspring and escapement, allowing it to perform admirably even in the presence of magnetic fields up to 16,000 A/m when placed 1 centimeter away. With a frequency of 28,800 beats per hour (BPH) and a power reserve of approximately 42 hours when fully wound, this movement delivers reliable precision. The watch is secured with a screw-down solid caseback, ensuring water resistance to 100 meters, adept at handling everyday splashes.
This watch is in near-mint condition, featuring only minor scuff marks on the bracelet. It comes complete with its original bracelet, box, and papers.
To protect the exclusivity of this remarkable watch, the serial number remains discreetly concealed.
