The Citizen Eco-Drive Blue Angels watch was crafted with the Blue Angels flight demonstration squadron in mind. As such, the careful crafting of this piece brings to mind the delicate instruments of an airplane cockpit.

Inspired by travel, the Blue Angels watch can change its display to preprogrammed time zones by rotating the dial to select your new time zone. Push it back in, and the hands move automatically.

Alongside this, there is also a perpetual calendar that displays both the day, week, month, and year without any change. This also takes leap years into account.

Chronograph Watch Buying Guide


Self-winding watches have been in use since the late 18th century, but automatic chronograph variants only came into being in the late 1960s. The first chronograph watch was developed by Tag Heuer, Breitling, and Hamilton in a working partnership. They gained notoriety again when the Omega Speedmaster chronograph was worn by the team of astronauts on the Apollo missions. Moreover, pilots had been using the Breitling Navitimer since the 1950s. And these days, some of the most famous chronographs watches come from Fossil or Citizen. We covered both of those in our Best Fossil Watches, and Best Citizen Watches guides.
