In celebration of Citizen Watch's new Thin Blue and Thin Red Line collection timepieces, the brand is collaborating with the NYPD Running Club and its annual NYPD vs. FDNY 5 Mile Run and NYPD Memorial 5K Run/Walk.
This past weekend, Citizen kicked off its sponsorship of the NYPD Running Club as the official timekeeper of the annual NYPD vs. FDNY 5 Mile Run. Throughout the event, Citizen was present to showcase its appreciation for both companies through the unveiling of the new Thin Blue and Thin Red Line collections. As the official timekeeper, Citizen was featured on the race's timeclock and presented the winning runners of each agency with either a Thin Red or Thin Blue Line timepiece.
"Citizen recognizes the bravery and dedication of service men and women, who risk their lives for the safety of everyday citizens," the company said. "In celebration of these heroes, Citizen has designed these special edition watches featuring the iconic thin blue line and thin red line on the watch faces, as well as unique insignia on the engravable case backs. Each timepiece is presented with special packaging and customizable gold-tone card with engraving offered by Citizen."
The Thin Blue Line men's piece is featured in stainless steel with 1/5 second chronograph measuring up to 60 minutes on a 42mm case. For ladies, the Thin Blue Line is embellished with Swarovski Crystal hour markers and a black crystal set dial. Honoring firefighters, the Thin Red Line watch is also featured in stainless steel with 1/5 second chronograph measuring up to 60 minutes on a 42mm case. Both collections featuring Citizen's iconic Eco-Drive technology are available for purchase at www.citizenwatch.com.
On May 19th, Citizen will look to support another NYPD Running Club race. Citizen will be the official timekeeper of the NYPD Memorial 5K Run/Walk and be present to promote the Thin Blue Line collection of men's and ladies' timepieces. To conclude the race, Citizen will present the winning runners with a Thin Blue Line timepiece.
