Citizen has launched a new watch which features a self-winding mechanical movement. The Signature Grand Touring Automatic includes three hands and a date. Its unique crown protector system which contributes to the water rating of 200 meters. The series come in a mid-size steel housing with optional PVD treatment and coupled with a steel bracelet or a leather strap.

The shape appeals to me. Out of the three, I like the Citizen Signature Grand Touring NB0070-06E Watch the most.

    Dear Meor Amri,
    Do you know where would be the best place in Tokyo (in terms of prices) to buy these Citizen Signature watches, as I will travelling there next month. Unless of course, it is better to buy them here in M’sia or Singapore, although I am unsure if and when they would be launched here.
    Your advice please.

      Hi Kim,
      These watches are currently available only in Japan. I suspect pricing will be at a premium with little or no discount. If you do find it in Tokyo do tell me.

      Regards, Meor
