The radio control technology of the Citizen JY8085-81E would prove particularly convenient for him as the watch automatically updates the time when you land in any of the 43 international cities, using radio signals from USA, China, Japan and Germany. Additionally, it has the world time function that is also a useful feature.

The black ion plating and the sleek onyx toned band makes it a tough and rugged timepiece, the perfect companion for a world traveller. Adding to the tough nature and ruggedness of the watch is the sapphire crystal which as we know is highly resistant to scratches.

The watch is also equipped with an accurate chronograph and a handy perpetual calendar. The dark hue of the dial and bezel are perfectly contrasted with the white indices and markers. The orange accents on the dial add a dash of colour to the stark appearance of the watch. Although the Citizen Promaster Radio Control JY8085-81E is an everyday watch, it can easily pass off as formal wear as well.
