It has not escaped your notice, since its launch in July 2022, the Citizen Tsuyosa is a piece that has met with great success with watchmaking enthusiasts who wish to move towards a modern watch equipped with a nice integrated bracelet.
A year later and after teasing us on social networks, the Japanese house founded at the beginning of the last century is coming back at full speed and offering us not one, not two, not even three, but four new configurations of its now very popular accessible watch.
Today, Ocarat Magazine is reviewing these 4 new products not to be missed!
New colored dials
With its black, green, blue and especially yellow models which worked very well last year, Citizen seems to have understood that the trend was towards sparkling dials. It is in this logic, therefore, that the brand reveals today 4 variations, all equipped with a face with an original shade and perfect for summer!
On the program, three blue models and a sun-kissed red creation with a soft golden robe.
By using a very fashionable color inspired by the shade popularized by a famous American jewelry house, the model ice blue (ref NJ0151-88M), or ice blue, will appeal to watch enthusiasts on the lookout for the latest releases!
THE Teal Blue (ref NJ0151-88X) and Red (ref NJ0153-82X) combine a gleaming teal blue and red hue with a darker edge to deliver an interesting and gently retro visual depth that will take you back to the 1980s.
Finally, the fourth and last model Vintage Blue (ref. NJ0151-88L) also has a dial that is lighter in its center but which also offers an original texture will appeal to all those looking for a watch that appears at first on board sober but which reveals nice reflections according to ambient light.
To remain sober, the Japanese brand has here chosen a set of simple stick-shaped hands whose size is, let’s emphasize, in perfect harmony with that of the applied indexes.
Luminescent material has been affixed here in strategic places to allow you to easily read the time in low light conditions. Special mention to the references NJ0151-88L and NJ0153-82X which are equipped with an unbleached photosensitive paste for a slight patina effect!
A magnifying magnifying glass is placed on the scratch-resistant sapphire crystal in order to facilitate the reading of the date window located at 3 o’clock precisely.
A seventies-style case
Equipped with clean lines, the build of these new Tsuyosa is identical in all respects to that of the previous versions that you are undoubtedly familiar with. With its 40mm diameter as well as its thickness of 11.7 mm, the case in stainless steel of this watch comes in relatively contained dimensions that will suit a wide range of people.
The combination of shiny and brushed finishes allows the timepiece to reflect light in a unique way and shifts it into a sporty chic register with sought-after elegance.
The winding crown has been strategically placed at 4 o’clock to create a streamlined appearance and provide you with unparalleled comfort in all your activities.
With an advertised level of tightness at 50 meters (5 ATM), these versatile watches designed for everyday life will withstand light immersion or a rain shower without any problem, but are not designed to accompany you in the depths of the sea.
A chic strap…
For these new references, Citizen has chosen to continue with the same bracelet as the previous year. Whichever version is selected, we therefore find here a style made from a row of 3 links with a slightly domed profile which is reminiscent of the “President” model mounted on certain watches of the prestigious brand with the crown. !
If the central links offer a beautiful polished finish with a mirror effect in order to match the bezel and the sides of the case, those located at the ends have been meticulously worked in order to offer you a brushed appearance which takes up the look of the upper part of the watch. build.
The relative smallness of each link gives the bracelet a high level of flexibility allowing it to adapt very easily to all male and female body types. THE folding clasp engraved with the brand logo will allow, if necessary, to adjust the size of the set with additional precision thanks to 3 micro adjustments.
Finally, note that the mesh falls off for a look that is both luxurious and elegant!
And an unchanged in-house movement!
It is indeed a Citizen 8210 automatic movement (Miyota) that we find under the hood of these Tsuyosa cuvée 2023. A 21 jewel caliber widely used in industry which beats at a frequency of 21,600 vibrations per hour (3Hz) and offers a very classic power reserve estimated at 42 hours .
Developed in-house by the firm, the famous anti-shock system “ parashock comes here to protect the balance shaft against the various vagaries of everyday life.
The screwed case back is engraved with various inscriptions and a transparent glass window offers you the possibility of contemplating this Japanese mechanism renowned for its great reliability! A detail that makes all the difference, especially for those who want to start a collection with a first quality automatic watch!
