Now I Understand what the Citizen RING is all About

So the deal with the Citizen RING concept model is that the solar panel has been moved from underneath the dial to run around the perimeter of the case.  This explains the open design of the casework in order to let the panel have greater access to light.  You can see the RING in the picture below.

What an interesting idea.  Not only does it permit for interesting case work design, but it also allows Citizen to use traditional dial construction which might have otherwise obscured the solar panel.

Other concept models from Citizen can be found here and here.
