CITIZEN L is a ladies’ watch brand from CITIZEN which launched in Europe and North America in 2012 and now available in nearly 50 countries globally. CITIZEN proposes a new style of luxury watch for women who embrace their lives in the 21st century with beauty and power, having Yoshiko Ikoma as the brand advisor since 2016.
The limited edition Ambiluna is a creation of architect, Mr. Sou Fujimoto, recognized for his novel approach to architecture embodied in various global projects, continues to oversee the brand as its advisor. “Absolute light,” – a concept proposed by Fujimoto is a new design-led approach to watch that tells the concept of ambiguous time with the transience of light. The key feature is the moon-glazed sapphire crystal that takes its image from a soft and misty moon light. The rich expression of the gradual shift in the light is created by frosting a highly-translucent sapphire crystal. It is an entirely new concept in watches where it is not a tool to check time but to put on light itself. This moon-glazed sapphire crystal is featured in all Ambiluna models.
This special bangle is designed for CITIZEN L by the artist duo, “MONOCIRCUS.” Inspired from the theme, “absolute light”, the design aimed to give shape to rings of
light. The 3D printer-based design allowed the freedom for a complex geometric shape, giving the bangle a unique appeal. Let the bangle together with the watch bring a beautiful accent to your wrist.
