CITIZEN ATTESA
New HAKUTO-R collaboration models inspired by the moon
the ultimate destination of the HAKUTO-R lunar lander

Citizen Watch will be releasing three new limited-edition ATTESA models equipped with the latest technologies from CITIZEN. These three new models were created in collaboration our corporate partner, ispace, inc., as part of their HAKUTO-R commercial lunar exploration program.

* Price, launch date, and limited-edition release details may be subject to change.

ispace, founded in 2010, is publicly traded company focusing on lunar exploration and resource development. CITIZEN became a corporate sponsor of the program in 2019. In December 2022, ispace’s Mission 1 part of the the HAKUTO-R program, was launched from the space center in Cape Canaveral, Florida, becoming the first commercial lander to be launched into space with the aim of landing on the moon. The mission gained vital know-how and data for the program’s next attempt at a lunar landing. Once again, CITIZEN will be providing Super TitaniumTM*1 as a component of the landing legs for its next mission. The lander for Mission 2 is being assembled and is currently scheduled to be launched in Winter 2024. The design of these new models takes inspiration from the moon – the ultimate destination of the HAKUTO-R lunar lander.

CC4065-61Y features the first-ever full mother of pearl dial from the ATTESA collection. Mother of pearl is layered over a colored base to evoke the distinctive patterns on the moon’s surface, and the center links of the bracelet are made of recrystallized titanium. A range of materials with different textures and properties combine to express the beauty of moonlight at night. This model also has a range of functions provided by CITIZEN’s advanced F950 movement, the ultimate movement for light-powered Eco-Drive satellite wave GPS watches*2. The watch is capable of receiving time signals in as little as 3 seconds – the fastest GPS satellite signal reception in the world*3 – and the hour and minute hands move rapidly to display the current time. BY1008-67L and BY1009-64Y have a solid, dynamic look to reflect the progress of technological innovation pioneered by ispace’s HAKUTO-R program as well as CITIZEN’s vast development and technological capabilities. The textured ink on the dial creates a rugged texture inspired by the distinctive patterns on the surface of the moon. Each model features Luna Program*4 which calculates the moon phase for each day based on date signals received from radio transmitters. The moon phase is then automatically displayed on the dial. All of these new models are Eco-Drive Radio Controlled*5 watches equipped with Direct Flight which allows easy adjustment of the time and date in 24 time zones with just a twist of the crown. All three models in this collection have a very close affinity with the HAKUTO-R lunar exploration program.

■ CC4065-61Y
– Features the first-ever full mother of pearl dial from the ATTESA collection. Mother of pearl is layered over a colored base to evoke the distinctive patterns on the moon’s surface, and the center links of the bracelet are made from recrystallized titanium. Each piece of recrystallized titanium has unique patterns – no two watches are the same.
– Materials with different textures and properties combine to express the beauty and mysterious nature of moonlight at night.
– The sapphire bezel and the glossy city names, applied using vapor deposition, surround the glittering moon on the dial, almost like a lunar halo.
– F950 movement – the most advanced movement for Eco-Drive Satellite Wave GPS watches, providing the world’s fastest time-only signal reception in as little as 3 seconds.

※1 Super TitaniumTM is CITIZEN’s proprietary technology to treat solid titanium with surface hardening technology. It is at least 5 times harder than stainless steel, resistant to scratches, lightweight and gentle to the skin for comfortable wearing.
※2 Eco-Drive is CITIZEN’s proprietary technology that powers watches using any natural or artificial light source, eliminating the need to replace batteries. Certified as an Eco Mark product for the first time in the watch industry.
GPS satellite-synchronized watch captures the date and time signals sent by GPS satellites from space — orbiting 20,000 kilometers above the Earth — bringing ultra-precise timekeeping to wherever people are on the face of the globe.
※3 Fastest satellite signal reception in the world for an analog light-powered GPS satellite wave watch. Figure from CITIZEN’s in-house research, as of September 2023.
※4 A fully automatic analog moon phase function. Calculates the moon phase for each day based on date information from the watch’s perpetual calendar to automatically display the current moon phase on the dial.
※5 Radio-controlled watches receive signals from radio transmitters to correct the time and calendar automatically.
※6 Duratect is CITIZEN’s proprietary surface hardening technology that enhances the surface hardness of metals such as stainless steel and titanium, protecting watch bodies from scratches and damage. This technology offers excellent abrasion quality and maintains the luster of metals for long periods of time. Duratect DLC achieves Vickers hardness of 1,000-1,400 by creating an amorphous carbon hard film—mainly composed of carbon and hydrogen—on the surface of the material. The gentle, understated pink color of Duratect Sakura Pink provides a beautiful contrast to any skin color. Duratect Sakura Pink is resistant to discoloration to maintain the beautiful pink color for longer. This technology achieves a high level of Vickers hardness from 1,100 to 1,500 HV (Vickers hardness of stainless steel is approx. 200 HV).
