The Citizen L is a worry-free watch, never requiring battery replacement that brings added confidence to daily living and complements the feminine radiance of an active woman’s life. The outer ring of the Citizen L timepiece encircles the flower bud-shaped crown and the case as if protecting something of great value. The gentle slant of the ring represents the gradual changes of nature. Like pearly morning dew on a leaf, variously sized 19 diamonds set in the ring to make for a sense of glistening movement. The time can be adjusted by loosening the outer ring and turning the crown. Tighten it back up, and set the world tickling again. 10 SKU’s of The Citizen L collection are available in India
