NEW YORK, Aug 23, 2014/ — On her role as CITIZEN Brand Ambassador, two-time grand slam tennis champion, Victoria Azarenka introduced her namesake watch, a limited-edition timepiece which is part of CITIZEN’s Ecosphere collection.
A fashion forward and bold line that will first debut this fall, the Victoria Azarenka Limited Edition Ecosphere features a rose gold-tone stainless steel case with white silicone strap and white dial.
The limited edition timepiece features Citizen’s proprietary chroma-finishing in white and “Limited Edition” engraved on the caseback. Each timepiece also comes in a sleek white leather presentation box with gold trim and accents.
Additional features of the watch include a 1/5 second chronograph that measures up to 60 minutes, 12/24 hour time, 3 hand with date and has Citizen Eco-Drive’s proprietary light-powered technology.
CITIZEN, Victoria Azarenka and the High School of Fashion Industries in New York have collaborated on a fashion design project for launch this fall.
Senior fashion students at the high school worked tirelessly to create stylish and hip outfits with the help of Victoria Azarenka.
All inspiration tied back to her new CITIZEN Limited Edition Ecosphere watch. The sporty yet sleek and fashionable watch inspired an array of ideas and designs all created by these talented seniors.
Victoria Azarenka said, “I couldn’t be more excited about the students’ fun, innovative fashion designs. I loved working with the students and was inspired by their appreciation for my new CITIZEN Limited Edition watch.”
CITIZEN will be honoring the winning student with a new Victoria Azarenka Limited Edition Ecosphere watch as well as an educational scholarship. In addition CITIZEN will be donating funds to the school for technical equipment including smart boards and digital cameras to assist these students with their studies.
Students and faculty from the New York High School of Fashion Industries will be guests of CITIZEN at the US Open next week.
