This energy stores in a permanently rechargeable power cell. The process continuously recharges the cell in any light and run the watch forever. It means you need not to change the battery ever. Generally, this kind of recharge system presents in digital or smartwatches and do not last long. But in Citizen Nighthawk BJ7000 52e, it is a never-ending process.

Watch Case

Citizen Nighthawk has a 42mm stainless steel case. The case has a lightly brushed finish on the body around the outer bezel. The case has three parts, and the outer bezel houses the internal slide rule. The 12.5mm tall body is a little greater perceived height. The case has its unique form with unpleasant geometry shapes. This gives the watch key base to favor it by the aviators. It also gives the watch a unique and modern look to add value to elite personality. There are two crowns at 8 and 3. Both the crowns are straight solid shapes. A protection guard with texture design keeps the crown safe from outer hurt. The shape and design of the crowns look strong and allows smooth operation.

Watch Dial

Citizen Nighthawk BJ7000-52E is the most special watch because of its excellent dial face. The round shape dial, design, black background, and red and white color text combination make the watch a unique one in the wristwatch market. The half aviation dial attracts people’s attention to the combination of black and red texts. Dual time (Second Time Zone), Date calendar are added features of the dial. The Nighthawk logo sets at the side of 3 o’clock crown under the date panel and the Citizen logo sets on the upper part of the crown. Once you look at the dial face, you will be its fan for the design of it.

The added beauty of the dial is its luminous marks and hands. The large marks lights in the dark and attract focus in the light also. The luminous hands are also a little wide in size for easy readability. I think the unique design of the watch is the main attraction of it and takes it to a top-level.
