Citizen Watch

Citizen Watch Company was established in 1918. The name was chosen by its founding fathers so their watches would be "close to the hearts of People Everywhere." Soon after, they adopted the company’s formal name of Citizen Watch Company.

Flaherty Jewelers is quite pleased to bring Citizen Watches to our customers in and around Arlington Heights, IL. During the last ninety-three years, Citizen has expanded its business throughout the world and achieved recognition as a global brand. The past twenty-five year period has coincided with the company’s dramatic rise to its current position as the world’s largest watchmaker, a distinction Citizen has held every year since 1986.

Citizen is dedicated to making watches of the most exceptional materials, and as such offers fine leather, 18K gold, stainless steel and titanium band options. Additionally, accents of diamonds and Swarovski Crystal beautifully demonstrate that Citizen continues to make watches of the highest quality for a lifetime of performance, functionality and elegance.

More recently, Citizen has staked out a new position as the leader in ecologically friendly timekeeping with its Eco-Drive collection of light powered watches. With models ranging from dress to sport to professional dive watches, Citizen Eco-Drive runs continuously in any kind of natural or artificial light for a lifetime of use. Fueled by light, it never needs a battery.

Beyond sheer size, Citizen is also recognized as a worldwide leader in advanced technology. From the world’s slimmest LCD watch, to the first voice recognized watch, and the world’s first professional dive watch with an electronic depth sensor, Citizen’s record of "world firsts" is unmatched.

To demonstrate the transcendent nature of the Citizen watch, current marketing ads are all about the "Unstoppable Campaign" featuring professional golfer Paula Creamer, NASCAR driver Matt Kenseth, and Giants footbal player Eli Manning. These professionals are all involved and lauded in demanding sports and all three rely on the precision and power of their Citizen watches.
