Pilot’s watches were first and foremost designed with maximum legibility in mind, so that they could provide their owners with at-a-glance access to the time while flying high above the clouds. The Citizen Wall Clock CC2016 takes the core design DNA of military-issued pilots watches from the golden era of aviation and distills it down into an 18” wall clock that features a water-resistant casing that is specifically designed for outdoor use.
Powering the Citizen Wall Clock CC2016 is one of the brand’s multi-function quartz clock movements, which runs on a single AA battery and includes both a humidity meter and a thermometer that are displayed by the two smaller registers located on the lower half of the dial. While the high-contrast white on black design offers supreme legibility, the hands and hour markers are also coated in green-glowing luminous material to offer better access to the time in dark conditions.

With a history that dates back to the founding of the Shokosha Watch Research Institute in 1918, Citizen Watch Co. was formally established in 1930 with the goal of creating high-quality yet accessible timepieces for the Japanese market. Headquartered in Nishitokyo, Tokyo, Japan, Citizen is one of the world's largest and most vertically-integrated watch manufacturers. In addition to producing timepieces under its own name, Citizen also serves as the parent company for a number of other brands including Bulova, Alpina, Arnold & Son, Frederique Constant, Campanola, and Miyota. Citizen’s list of horological accomplishments is both long and impressive, including everything from creating Japan’s first fully-waterproof wristwatch to currently holding the title for the world’s most accurate movement, which is capable of astonishing precision within just one second per year.
