Founded in Japan in 1918, Citizen represents a century of fine craftsmanship and experience. Theirs is a comprehensive approach to watch-making, from manufacturing the individual components to creating the final product. One of Citizens’ proudest achievements is their Eco-Drive, which uses all available sources of light to charge your watch, ensuring you have a timepiece that will never stop or require a battery change, charging or winding. Darkness is not a concern, since the Eco Drive can run for six months on a single charge, and any type of light will provide energy for the fluid function of your watch. Ecologically-minded and considering themselves true citizens of the world, Citizen Watch Company well deserves their reputation for crafting some of the finest affordable watches.
