It’s no coincidence that the Citizen Nighthawk looks like the dashboard of a cockpit. It’s a flight watch, after all, and it’s packed with complications a pilot would find handy, including a slide rule dial with two logarithmic scales and a time-distance conversion index. But you don’t have to be a pilot to appreciate this solar-powered watch. The Nighthawk is as attractive as it is useful, with its stainless steel bracelet, applied hour markers, and Roman sword-style hands. Plus, many of the complications offer practical applications for everyday use.
For one, the Nighthawk allows you to keep track of a second time zone. Maybe you have family overseas, or you’re traveling for work. The GMT function, which comprises two arcs between the 6 and 12 o’clock positions and an independently adjustable hours hand, allows you to set two time zones at once, quickly and easily. And the slide rule bezel is not only capable of converting units and measuring time against distance but also able to perform basic math equations. All of these functions are manipulated by way of a knurled crown at the 8 o’clock position.
At the 3 o’clock position is a second crown with heavy knurling, which controls the time and the date window at 3 o’clock. The 3 o’clock crown features a screw-down design that helps the watch achieve 200 meters of water resistance. For use at night, the dial features lumed hour markers as well as lumed hour and minute hands. Meanwhile, the three-piece case features a brushed finish and a screw-down back. Perhaps best of all, because it’s equipped with Citizen’s Eco-Drive movement, the Nighthawk lasts 6 months on a full charge and never needs a new battery.
