Around the world, the Citizen NJ015 automatic would be a familiar watch, and one that could be picked up easily enough. Here in the United States? That hasn’t been the case – that is, until today. So, it’s time to get yourself familiar with the Citizen NJ015 “Tsuyosa”, as this should prove to be a popular one.

Citizen NJ015 “Tsuyosa”

As you saw in the title, the Citizen NJ015 also has a nickname – Tsuyosa. Myself, I like names (this one means ‘strength’ in Japanese) as I find them easier to remember than a model or reference number. Powered by an in-house automatic movement, the Citizen Tsuyosa has a very classic and timeless look to it.

On the dial, you’ve got baton indices (doubled up at 12 and 6) and hands over a range of dial colors, both classic and modern. Over the top of the date window is a feature I rather like, a cyclops magnifier. All of this is set into a 40mm stainless steel case that comes complete with an integrated three-link bracelet with polished center links.

In other words, the Citizen Tsuyosa has all the hallmarks of a classic look that should work well for dressier environments, as well as the more casual. Of course, that’s all from the photos; we are working on getting in a review loaner as well, so be on the lookout for that. If you can’t wait, these are available now for $450 directly from
