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.

    I already own several Eco Drives, and this one reminds me why I like them so much. The powder coated case is a unique and eye catching detail you won't find anywhere else, and knowing how many layers of clear coat were added to the powder coating assures me that it will remain as durable as the mineral window. The polyurethane strap is extremely comfortable as well. Strap it on for a few minutes and you'll forget you're even wearing a watch, it's that comfortable. The strap makes this watch a great choice for people with leather allergies that want something more low key than a metal strap. Also, although thin, the strap has proven very durable and has been constructed so as to conform to the shape of the case... Meaning less flexing and wear on the one part of the strap that typically experiences the most fatigue. Overall, this is a quality watch at a price point that will appeal to someone either looking to make their entry into the realm of nicer watches or for someone looking for a great gift idea.

    My wife just bought this for me for a thank you present and it is great. The band is comfortable and something about the green is simply fun, yet maintains a level of sophistication. It makes for a great piece between my other watches where a digital Casio sports watch simply lacks class and my favorite Tag Heuer. After really looking at it I thought she may have spent closer to $450 for it as it definitely has that look--- for that alone it makes it worth 5-stars. As far as pricing, she paid the same as what it is being offered on Amazon.

    There is no question that Citizen has made some really great watches with their Eco-Drive collection over the years. But they have decided to show a younger, edgier look with the Drive 2.0 collection. There have been some good looks with their classic watches, and this one handles well. This delightful chronograph is very easy to setup and read. It has a very comfortable strap, and very easy to read. I also like it because a more modern look than what Citizen and other fine watch companies have shown the past several years. I do though wish that the polyurethane strap could've been a lot thicker to match other brands, but nevertheless, the watch still handles very well, and I like it a lot. This is a great buy if you are new to Citizen watches, and want a younger look, with Citizen's high quality.
