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.

Comfort & Setup:B
Overall: B 1/2-
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,...Read more ›
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.
