New JDM Citizen Promaster Sky Models

Its been a while since we've seen any new JDM Citizen Promasters but Citizen released two new models in their Sky series the end of 2012.  Both models are radio controlled with a variety of strap and dial options.

Models CB0130-51E and CB0134-00E utilize the H145 caliber with an instrument inspired hand set and dial very similar to the current Nighthawk.  The world timer feature of this caliber doesn't seem to be used or maybe I can't figure out from the dial and translations how it is used. Models are available with a steel bracelet or leather strap.  Full MSRP is 75,000 to 85,000 Yen.

Models BY0080-65E, BY0080-57E, BY0084-56E utilize the H610/H611 caliber with the same hand set but with a more complex dial.  This caliber features a world timer as well as a 60 minute chronograph.  The BY0080-65E model looks like it is some sort of commemorative edition for the Japan Air Self Defense Force aerobatic team called Blue Impulse.  These models range from 100,000 to 120,000 Yen full MSRP.

Both calibers are Perfex 3000 which means they will receive the radio signal from Chinese, Japanese, American and European towers.
