Some watches use radio signals to calibrate the time. While these work, they’re not perfect systems as the further away you are from the broadcasting station, the poorer your reception will be. But Citizen’s recently announced Eco-Drive Satellite Wave watch gets its sync data from any of 24 GPS satellites constantly orbiting earth. Since the entire point of the GPS system is to be able to geo-locate anywhere on the planet, you’ll be able to tell what time it is even if you’re stranded in the arctic.
The price has not been announced yet, but since this is a limited edition run and it has a part ceramic case, we’re expecting it to not tread on the side of cheap. We do know that it will be available in Fall 2011.
