Citizen’s Sub-brand Campanola Launches New Chronograph Stopwatch With Swiss Mechanical Movement

Japan’s CITIZEN sub-brand Campanola has launched a new NZ1001 series chronograph stopwatch, a Swiss mechanical chronograph movement produced by La Joux-Perret movement factory under its brand, and a mechanical watch series assembled in Japan The most complex of these works has attracted special attention.

   In 2012, after CITIZEN acquired the Swiss LaJoux-Perret movement factory and obtained complete production technology, in August 2015, its subsidiary brand Campanola released a new mechanical watch series equipped with the movement of the factory, and launched the Movement Y-513, with a large calendar window and a power reserve display of the Campanola Mechanical NZ0000 series three-pin automatic watch. This time, the NZ1001 series mechanical chronograph stopwatch is the highest level of complexity in the series.

   The new NZ1001 series chronograph stopwatch is a 44mm stainless steel case, the sapphire crystal is anti-glare coated, and the sapphire water mirror has a transparent bottom cover. Among the layered three-dimensional faceplates, the biggest highlight is the Tachymeter three-dimensional scale ring fixed by 4 screws, which has a strong sense of design. In addition, the hours and minutes hands follow the hollow design used in the NZ0000 series, but they use a more neat style and are closer to the dynamic temperament of the chronograph.

   The NZ1001 series chronograph watch is the most eye-catching. It is equipped with the Y-150 automatic movement produced by the Star subsidiary LaJoux-Perret movement factory, with a vibration frequency of 28,800vph, 27 stones, and a power reserve of 42 hours. Equipped with chronograph functions of 30 minutes, 12 hours, and small seconds, including the small seconds, and inherits the large calendar window date of the NZ0000 series.
