Citizen Blue Angels World Chronograph A-T

You have to love Citizen. Between Seiko and themselves, the state of the art in quartz timekeeping keeps improving. Solar power, radio-set time, Bluetooth, GPS… they lead the way.

This is the Blue Angels World Time Chronograph, reference AT8020-03L. Eco-Drive (solar power), sapphire crystal, radio-set, 60-minute chronograph, perpetual calendar, day/date, power reserve plus quick-change support for 26 time zones.

Citizen has long been a supporter of the Blue Angels team, so this watch is the latest in a long line. Long before I was writing here, I asked my wife to buy me one as I was learning to fly, so a Blue Angels was my first pilot’s watch:

New and old Blue Angels watches

They’ve advanced and changed quite a bit since then (2001). Mine was battery powered, mineral crystal (you can see the scratches), and non radio-set. The design evolved too, with the change to an inner slide rule computer bezel and the dropping of the LCD screens. Functionally, the new model lacks the alarms of the old, and is in general simpler to use. I’ve kept and continue to use mine, it still has the best movement I’ve found for air travel. More on this later.

Citizen packaging

Nice simple box and packaging, which includes a QR code card, mini-CD and the paper manual too. Citizen proudly says that the packaging is made from recycled materials – a good thing.

Watch and manual

As a former pilot I have to say that the slide rule bezels are not usable in flight. Too small and fiddly. More of a reminder of your E6B and a nice conversation piece. On the A-T, the bezel is under the crystal, and actuated via the crown at eight o’clock. On the wrist, that’s very difficult. However, moving it under the glass makes the watch dressier.

One of the A-T features I like a lot is time zone changes. Pull the crown out one stop, rotate to select your new timezone, push it back in and the hands move. Done, and you can even manage it without taking the watch off. My older model has the same feature, implemented with buttons, and I still love it for jet travel days.

Functionally, the A-T has a one hour chronograph, a fixed 24-hour display at nine, perpetual calendar, Eco-Drive solar power, retrograde day display, power reserve, atomic (radio-set) timekeeping that works with six transmitters (US, UK, Germany, China, Japan). The world time support includes 30-minute-offset zones, but not the 15-minute oddballs.

Measuring 43mm across, it’s a modern-sized watch. 12.3mm thick, 49.2 lug to lug. Oddly, the lugs are 23mm, an unusual size that makes it harder to find replacement straps. Weight including strap is 87g.

If you look at the date window, you get a peek at the complex structure of the dial – printing layered on top of the photovoltaics. Citizen has advanced to the point that there’s no visible sign a dial is Eco-Drive.

The polished sub dial surrounds look like aircraft instruments, which is pretty darn cool. The sub dial at six is showing the day of the week – it’s a neat retrograde indicator that I like. It lets the spatial side of your brain see “where” in the week you are, just as the 24-hour dial at nine shows where in the day you are.

The Blue Angels’ colors are blue and yellow, in case that wasn’t obvious already. I quite like how Citizen used the yellow as a subtle bit of panache: the strap backing is normally hidden, and the yellow stripe inset into the side of the bezel is only visible from off-axis.

It’s also available on a bracelet. The strap is excellent. Leather, layered with a woven middle section and what feels like sailcloth on the back. Nicely made buckle, too. Two keepers, one fixed, one floating.

Lume is blue-green, and decent. I do wish they had either a LED or better lume.

I’ve worn it cycling, playing volleyball and ultimate, and the 87g weight is easy to forget. At 12.3mm thick, it’s very shirt-friendly and goes easily under cuffs.

The case is well made, with a brushed finish and ergonomic curved lugs. There’s just a bit of polished highlight on the top edge.

I like the ion-plated blue bezel. That, and the yellow highlights give the watch just a bit of character and emphasis.

With a very unusual 200m-rated case, this is a great watch for “wear it everywhere and never worry.” No battery to change, never need to set the time; just no hassle. I think this is a great “nice watch” for anyone who doesn’t want to be a watch geek. It works great for travelers, is low-key enough for business wear, and tough enough to leave on when you jump in the pool. List price is $575, which all things considered I find quite reasonable.
