Fellow Tokyo brand hobo is also known for its premium craftsmanship with leather goods, bags, footwear, and accessories. Following releases in 2014 and 2018, the two brands partner once again to present a revamped version of the dependable, versatile ECO-DRIVE WATCH.

A perfect present for the gift-giving season, the CITIZEN × hobo ECO-DRIVE WATCH will be available at COVERCHORD from Wednesday, December 15.

A tough, lean design reminiscent of military watches, the Citizen BM8180-03E Eco-Drive watch features a casing width of 37mm, making it comfortable to wear without interfering with the movement of the wrist. In addition to water-resistance of up to 10 ATM and a Day-Date Display, the watch is equipped with CITIZEN's proprietary Eco-Drive technology, which allows it to be used continuously without battery replacement.

Designed as a minimal and versatile model to blend in with modern lifestyles, the CITIZEN × hobo ECO-DRIVE WATCH features a matte finish case and an original design dial that removes all unnecessary details. A 24-hour display gives it the feel of a military watch, while the luminous coating on the hands and markers is a subdued coloring reminiscent of vintage watches.

The result is a simple, highly legible watch with a uniquely refined character The watch comes with two straps - one nylon and one leather - with the colors carefully selected to match the casing. The leather strap, which will develop a soft patina over time, provides a sense of laid-back luxury, while the military-style pull-off strap design makes interchanging quick and easy.

The CITIZEN × hobo ECO-DRIVE WATCH will be released on Wednesday, December 15.
