The Citizen Watch Company is dedicated to finely created watches using only the most exceptional materials and highly skilled craftsmen. Established in 1918, almost one hundred years ago, Citizen continues to make watches of the highest quality for a lifetime of performance, functionality, and elegance with such quality materials as 18K gold, titanium, fine leather, and stainless steel options. Additionally, Citizen Watches are frequently designed with diamond and Swarovski Crystal accents to fully illuminate their inherent beauty.
The name "Citizen" was chosen by the company's founding fathers. They wanted their watches to be "close to the hearts of people everywhere." Not long after first starting, the company adopted its formal name of "Citizen Watch Company". Since then, Citizen has expanded its business internationally and earned well-deserved recognition as a global brand. The past 25 years, in particular, have coincided with the company's impressive rise to its current position as the world's largest watchmaker. Citizen has held this honorable distinction every year since 1986.
Recently, Citizen has begun to explore a new position as a leader in ecologically friendly timekeeping with the advanced Eco-Drive collection of light powered watches. With watches ranging from dressy to casual to sport models and professional dive watches, Citizen Eco-Drive runs reliably and continuously in any natural or artificial light for a lifetime of use. Since it is fueled by light, it never needs a battery.
