Since its foundation in 1930, CITIZEN has promoted a multi-cultural mindset that fosters excellence and creativity. The very name of the brand conveys a deep respect toward craftsmanship and considered as familiar by citizens the world-over. So as a “citizen” of the world, we bear the responsibility to help cultivate a culture of positive change and on-going evolution through our craft. We take that mission seriously and steadfastly welcome what the future may bring.

As a true manufacture d’horlogerie, CITIZEN integrates a comprehensive manufacturing process from creating individual components to a watch’s final assembly. It’s an artisan’s approach to watch making based on pushing forward the boundaries of technology and leveraging our experience toward exploring new possibilities.

One pivotal technological breakthrough was the development of a light-driven watch. CITIZEN pioneered this engineering innovation well ahead of other watch manufacturers as early as 1976, which led to the launch of the highly acclaimed Eco-Drive in 1995. Utilizing electrical power converted from virtually any light source, this extraordinary innovation changed forever the way watches could be powered. Eco-Drive eliminated the need to ever replace batteries, which made it especially beneficial to areas where such specialist batteries were not obtainable. This leveled the field for citizens of virtually every country to be able to experience unrestricted joy of wearing and using a CITIZEN watch.

The product development policy, “The Fusion of Technology and Beauty,” remains a constant motivation for us to merge cutting-edge technology with perfection of design beauty, which as a consequence inspires people to strive to be their best at any time.

CITIZEN launches a new campaign in collaboration with Wieden+Kennedy, Better Starts Now. This is the simple belief that no matter who you are or what you do, it is always possible to make something better — and now is the time to start doing it. We believe that better and now are both infinite, and that there is always a next ‘better’ and a new ‘now’ in which you can start pursuing it. It was clear from the onset of this project that we are dedicated to this ideal…not to the past but to the present, and all the way we can improve it. To help communicate this belief to the world we have created a new global CITIZEN brand movie, brand identity and brand website that represents out Better Starts Now philosophy.

    This watch is the intersection of function and beauty. In a word- Brilliant! Very high quality. Precise. Handsome. As with the many other Citizens I've owned, it lives up to the name. I ranked this a solid four stars. What kept it from the 5th were two minor shortcomings. First, the watch band. While solid and substantial, unlike the product pictures it doesn't measure up to the watch. I found it to be a bit on the cheap side. At close inspection the finish appears a somewhat fake (it isn't real croc) and the white decorative stitching is a diameter too thin to hold up to the scale of the watch piece. Others won't probably see it at a casual glance at your wrist though. Obviously the easy remedy is to invest in a better band at the appropriate time- no pun intended. Secondly, the "mocha" colored face is not the same shade as the picture represents. It is closer to the standard black watch face, and in fact the outer dial with the E6B nomenclature is indeed black. I looked at this watch with several different computer screens, all of which seemed to bring out more of a brownish shade. In real life expect something closer to black and unless it is in outdoor light and you know to look for a different color, you probably won't see it. All that said, would I purchase this watch again? Certainly. Considering the price and the quality, I consider this a smart, stylish purchase that will be passed down one day to my son. And lastly a word to first time Citizen customers- be sure to read the directions carefully and watch the included DVD on how to set the watch. It isn't hard but if you try the typical "I'm a man and directions are for those who don't know what they are doing" approach, you'll spend a lot of time trying to set the time. Buy with confidence and enjoy your new watch.

    Beautiful watch; strap seems sturdy, thick synthetic leather. The pin for securing the hole in the strap seems a little cheap, but I could be wrong.

    The dial is definitely a dark brown, but it still looks beautiful. The rose gold finish looks impeccable as well.

    The cons are that this thing is impossible to set. The manual, something like 20-30 pages thick, doesn't even do a good job. If you want to set the time, pull the crown out once and put it on TME. Then pull it out again, click the top right button (the minute hand will waver to indicate you are setting the time) and then set the time. Click the top right again to set the rest of the functions.

    I still have no idea how to use the CHR (Chronograph). When I go to that function, it resets the calendar to 0 (which takes a while) and points all the hands to 12. It doesn't move after that.

    On top of that, they're not all exactly lined up at 12...is this a reset issue? I have no idea. Most watch shops will have no idea how to set the time on this, so you're best figuring it out yourself.

    All in all, beautiful watch that can tell time and never needs significant attention. Takes some time to get it up to speed. Regarding the eco drive functionality; I live in the Pacific NW and am in a notoriously grey season and this thing hums along beautifully.

    The watch looks good, and the high quality of manufacture is immediately apparent. I use the watch just to tell the time; while I love a watch loaded with retro doodads for its looks(alarm, chronograph, dual time, slide rule, eco-drive, perpetual calendar) I probably won't use them too much.

    What I was not happy with is that the manual is as bare-bones as it gets. A generic teeny-tiny manual with a few pages. It talks about two watch modules and one has to figure out which module is theirs by looking at the back of the watch.

    Come on Citizen, you can do better on the manual and match the right module to the right manual without asking the customer to do it. And while there are other Internet tutorials on how to use the slide rule, would it kill you to include one in the box, or post it on your web site?

    I purchased this watch for my boyfriend for a 30th birthday gift and he absolutely loves it (as do I). This piece is very flattering - classy & sporty. Its certainly an "attention getter" just about everytime hes worn it out he's gotten compliments. It does have a larger face (as it displays in the picture) than most mens watches, but this style is very "in" right now. My boyfriend has a small wrist, and I was worried at first it would be to bulky on him but needless to say it's perfect! This is a fabulous buy!!

    I love this watch. I've had Citizen watches for years, including their 'high end' Noblia watches, which were just Citizens with higher prices (!). Still, they last forever, keep great time, and look fantastic.

    I'll keep this brief - the watch does everything it promises to do. BUT - the printed manual is useless. Worse, it's actually wrong. Fortunately, the watch also comes with a mini-CDROM that includes a FLASH tutorial that takes you through the setting procedure step-by-step. That's what I needed - with that, setting the watch was straightforward. DO NOT LOSE THIS DISK!

    That said, this is a beautiful watch. This is my first Eco-Drive, and I'm excited to have a watch that doesn't chew up batteries.
