Japanese watchmaker Citizen is introducing its first tourbillon mechanical watch, the Citizen Tourbillon Y01, to commemorate the 300th commemoration of Daimaru Matsuzakaya, one of Japan’s biggest and most seasoned retail chain.
In spite of the fact that Citizen was associated with the production of tourbillon watches with Arnold & Son, a brand which is essential for the Citizen-claimed La Joux-Perret Group, this is the first occasion when that a tourbillon watch is delivered under the Citizen brand.
The Tourbillon Y01 comes in a 42 mm white gold case outlining a precious white finish dial.
The hand-wound development, created and produced by Citizen, is visible through the straightforward sapphire crystal caseback and decorated with ribbing, uniform stripes which are created utilizing a marginally inclined, pivoting granulating wheel that is guided along the component in straight, equal lines.
Available just at Daimaru Matsuzakaya Department Stores, the price of the Tourbillon Y01 is 10 million yen, roughly Euro 80,000/US$90,000. citizenwatch-global.com
