The Citizen Men's Eco-Drive Strap Sport Watch has been perfected to suit both the professional man and the outdoorsman. This solar-powered Eco-Drive watch never needs a battery and remains charged for months at a time, even in the dark. Distinguished by rich black tones and chronograph technology, this watch's circular dial features three black subdials with sweeping hands over a striking black background. Textured with a grooved pattern, this background catches the light along with its overlaid frame of luminescent silver-tone bar hour markers and easy-to-read stick second markers. A large date window is perched at the four o'clock for at-a-glance reference, while the outermost dial is constructed with a tachymeter rim for computing speed (based on travel time) and distance (based on speed). This impressive dial is held by a silver-tone stainless steel case and bezel. And if you like to time short events, you'll be glad to note that the bezel is etched with Arabic second indexes in intervals of fifteen, as well as notched second markers along the first quarter-hour. A fine black leather band fastens this watch, featuring a crocodile pattern and a handy buckle clasp. Boasting a durable mineral window and the reliability of Japanese-quartz movement, this smart, distinctive timepiece is water resistant to 330 feet (100 M).
The company was established in 1918. The founding fathers selected the name Citizen so it would be "Close to the Hearts of People Everywhere" and soon after adopted the company’s formal name, Citizen Watch Company.
During the last seventy-five years Citizen has expanded its business throughout the world and has achieved recognition as the 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.
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 recognition watch and the world’s first professional dive watch with an electronic depth sensor, Citizen’s record of "world’s firsts" is unmatched.
More recently, Citizen has staked out a new position as the leader in timekeeping with its Eco-Drives watches that are light powered. With models ranging from dress models to sports models 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.
