Citizen celebrates 100 years of Disney through an exploration of the Wonder of Time. The year-long tribute to the wonder of Disney will unfold with all-new Disney | Citizen watches, plus featured watches that mark each decade through the year. The latest watches released celebrate Disneyo’s 2000s era.
Featuring everyone’s favorite rat chef extraordinaire Remy, the new Pixar Ratatouille watch will transport you to the streets of Paris through a detailed illustration of Remy (by Disney artist extraordinaire Jeff Shelly) concocting his famous soup against a romantic skyline. The dial uses stylized features with fantastical curled numerals with the 7 o’clock hour marker illustrated as a noodle floating in Remy’s soup. Ticking atop the colorful illustration are three Parisian-inspired rose gold-tone hands indicating the hour, minute, and second. This colorful timepiece has three Parisian-inspired rose gold hands and is available now for $325.
Another mouse also steals our hearts with the all-new Disney Mickey Mouse Classic “Windswept” timepiece. In this gold-tone stainless steel design available for $375, the silver-white dial is the perfect backdrop for this crisp illustration of Mickey swept up in love with a bouquet of vibrant flowers. The crisp illustration is complemented by Roman numeral hour markers and three simple gold-tone hands. Again, Disney artist Jeff Shelley designed this charming piece to incorporate the modern look of Disney’s Mickey Mouse which debuted in the early 2000s TV show, Mickey Mouse Works, while still using touches of Mickey’s old-school design from the 1936 short “Thru the Mirror.”
Both watches are sustainably powered by any light with the brand’s proprietary Eco-Drive technology and never need a battery. You can find timepieces featuring more of your favorite Disney characters, stories, and memories in celebration of the 100th anniversary on Citizen’s Wonder of Time page.
