With a 99% clarity coating, the Exceed has a special coating the front and back surfaces of sapphire glass with a multi-layered silicon compound, light reflection is reduced (transmittance 99%), ensuring high visibility and making it easier to see the watch dial. In addition, it is hard to be scratched and has a water-repellent film that prevents dirt on the surface, improving its durability and antifouling properties.
Duratet technology brings surface hardening technology originally developed by Citizen to protect the watch's natural brightness and beauty. The surface hardness is increased by applying special processing to materials such as titanium and stainless steel to protect the watch case and band from scratches and small scratches.
With Citizen's original technology, Super Titanium, pure titanium is subjected to a surface hardening technology Deratet, achieving a hardness five times that of stainless steel. It is about half as light stainless steel, it is gentle on the skin, hard to rust, and has excellent wear resistance. While maintaining the original brightness and color of the watch, it can be used comfortably.
This classically styled watch features roman numerals as well in a striking royal blue colour that perfectly offsets the titanium colour of both the dial and the case. Offering quality and reliability as well as an all round stunning design, the Citizen Exceed has become one of the brand’s most popular and enduring models of all.
