Product Description

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 love this watch. I get compliments on it frequently, and people are surprised at how little I actually paid. The feel of the band is fantastic, and the quality of the movement, pristine for the price.

    One of my favorite features is the lumenes of the hands, and the numeric markings. They glow blue, and do so with a small amount of light. I live in a very cloudy area, and work retail, so I do not utilize it too often, but still a great feature. The watch is also perfect for most wrist sizes, especially really skinny ones such as mine! The watch does not look overbearing on my wrist as some other faces do. The versatility of the watch is perfect for my always moving work environment. It never gets sweaty, irritating, and is a pretty resistant watch. It has taken a few beatings on the glass case, maybe a few scratches or so. I've gotten it wet and its had no effect but I would be careful as its not a divers watch. The blue colour is especially nice, and aesthetically pleasing without being to gaudy. The date dial, though it needs to be changed per month, is also a nice feature. Citizen is also a reliable brand, though not known for being overly high end (which is a plus in my opinion).

    Overall, this watch is effective, attractive, and durable. I am a young adult, at the age of 21, and find this watch suitable for my age group, and probably any age group at that. Highly recommend, coming from a picky watch person with particular wrists.

    Ideal for: young people, working people, style, durability, comfort, all wrists
    NOT Ideal for: name brand seekers, divers, people who hate blue

    About a month ago I was in the market for a new watch that would be more casual but still have an attractive look at a reasonable price. For 2 weeks I scoured the internet and looked at hundreds of watches, but I found myself continuously coming back to this one and eventually made the purchase. Here are the pros and cons for me that stick out:

    PROS

    + The face of the watch is remarkable. I love the textured look of the face while retaining a solid black. It makes the face pop but not overly so
    + The blue trim (apparently the same treatment as cars get) around the face of the watch is perfect. It gives the watch the splash of color it needs without becoming obnoxious
    + For my wrist, I find the watch is a perfect size. It's not heavy and feels balanced on my hand
    + The chrome used in the hour markers and throughout the watch is eye catching and makes it stand out. I love that a few of the hour markers are accented in blue and the hands glow a light blue in the dark
    + It keeps great time and is an Eco Drive so is constantly charged by the sun.

    CONS

    - I'm not a huge fan of the wristband. Now this watch is meant to be sporty and I get that, but the rubber can be uncomfortable for me at times. I think I would have preferred leather
    - The glow in the dark markers don't stay lit up for long. I get that they fade over time but it feels like they fade awfully fast with this watch. I've had some watches I can still see a slight fade of the hands. Not so in this watch.
    - Maybe an unfair con, but I was disappointed in the lack of color selection. I would have been interested to see a couple more color options with this watch. Your choices are black or blue. Good colors...but limited.

    The watch looks really good. And the shippment was quick, only took about 10 days to China. I haven't been wearing a watch for almost 10 years, so still not used to the feel of wearing it. When I first opened the box, it was almost out of battery. only a few hours on the balcony, then it works well now.

    I have got the blue AR 2.0 citizen watch, without chronograph (as I prefer cleaner looks). I've spent some time browsing different brands of watches, searching for everyday casual watch. I should say that since I saw this watch, I could not find something within the same price range that could be a good rival to it. Initially I was brought to browse citizen watches because of their eco-drive system, but when I saw this one - the search was over.
    Then when I received it, my expectations were even exceeded - I loved it. Very good looking, feels high quality and as previously read on some reviews - it is a good fit on the wrist - quite comfortable.

    When it arrived the battery was in exhausted state and had to place it in light for few hours to get it going correctly (hand that measures seconds will move through 2 sec intervals instead of 1 when the battery is exhausted).

    On the down side - the phosphorescent markings are a bit weak. Could be better, but probably this is the only thing I really count as some issue.

    Very recommendable watch for those looking for the casual/sporty type.

    This is an excellent watch, truly superb. I own 2 other Citizen watches which are also magnificent watches, but this one, though less formal, is actually my favorite.
    The "pinstripe" design is very handsome, the hands elegant, the chrome accents luxurious. The blue accents around the case are quite bright - striking is a fair description - so just be aware of that; however, as other reviewers have noted, it's not obnoxious and the watch still goes with a wide variety of clothing. It's just the right size, weight, and feel; substantial but not overbearing.
    It keeps perfect time, resists scratches, and I really like the idea of a solar watch - investing in a higher quality timepiece instead of buying batteries every couple of years. And this is just the kind of quality piece worth investing in.
    Yes, it can be a little difficult to read in low light conditions and the date window is small, but that doesn't detract from the casual beauty of this watch. The blue accents make this my "Saturday" watch (though it could be an everyday watch as well) and the first fun, casual watch that I have had in many, many years.
    Citizen beautifully adds style to quality, particularly in this watch. I love it and would highly recommend it!
    I gladly give it a grade of A.
