Product Description

STAINLESS STEEL, MINERAL CRYSTAL, LEATHER, BUCKLE, WATER RESISTANT

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.

    There is no question that Citizen has really made some excellent watches in their Eco-Drive line. This one is definitely no exception either in not just class, but comfort as well. This Citizen Eco-Drive leather watch is very easy to setup and works well in its solar quartz movement. You also can easily setup the day and date without many hastles. My only gripe though with the watch is that I honestly wish that the hands could've been able to glow in the dark, unlike many other models that Citizen has made. Still, you do get what you pay for, and this piece is definitely one of them that is worth the effort and wait. I also do wish this could've also cost a little less as well. But nevertheless, I like this watch, and I know you'll like it too.

    Very nice watch! I'm a big fan of Citizen watches and love the whole Eco-Drive component. I immediately fell in love with it upon seeing it online and knew my boyfriend would love this as an anniversary gift. It definitely did not disappoint. He loves it too and wears it often. Very sturdy craftsmanship. Such a beauty to behold. This timepiece should certainly be timeless.

    It work's great, I'm only 17 and I love it. It defiantly feel's like one of the watches I'd pass down through the family. I like it a lot, It doesn't take too long to charge in light either when it needs it. Takes something like 15 minutes. Very happy with it.

    This watch is beautiful, but it does have its flaws IMO.

    FLAW: Broke the watch band within two months of owning it-- the part with the buckle and tang ripped apart one night when I was out, and I lost the buckle which had CITIZEN stamped on it. Took it back to Macy's and they said I just passed the warranty period (doesn't it figure?) and they'd send it out to get a price check on the new band. $80 to replace the band was the quote from Citizen, and I could buy a much higher quality strap that actually has stitching rather than just glue holding the buckle/tang in. No thanks, so I'm wearing it on a cheap no-name replacement and the buckle doesn't match exactly.. I'm not going to pay half the price of the watch just for the band which may just as likely to do the same thing again!

    FLAW: Watch crystal scratches easily. By the time I got it back from Macy's the crystal had 2 or 3 deep scratches in it. I don't know if Citizen offers an upgrade to the sapphire crystal for this model and I'm reaching out to C.S. to ask because I believe it's less prone to scratching. I'm currently trying to brush the thing out with polishing paste (flitz) it's just the scratches are pretty deep and taking forever to get out.

    STRENGTH: The eco-drive functionality is amazing-- when an automatic power reserve runs out in ~40hr it's so refreshing to see this thing last as long as I have. I sent the thing away for a month to get those repairs/estimates done and when it got back to me it was still running on time.

    STRENGTH: Watch face itself is beautiful and easy to read. I love the Day/Date dials because I'm a forgetful person, and the second/minute hand markers (05,10,...

    The ability to set the watch with precision is very good because the hands and face are so distinct. Goes well with casual or dress clothes. Very nice.

    Product as described. Visually pleasing without being obnoxious, simplistic controls, fair price. This is my second Eco-drive, the first I purchased over five years ago and the original works fine.

    I like the watch. I have looked at a lot of eco watches. I think that all factors considered, cost, quality etc, this one is one of the best buys. My only complaint is that some of the time, the minute and hour hand locate in such a way that being able to read the date circle is difficult.

    It was nice to get wonderful watch with good price. The watch is now clicking on my wrist.
    As I wanted it for so long time, I am satisfied with the time piece.
    One thing I need to do was strap change. Original strap is not so bad. But if you want to improve your satisfaction, change the strap.
