Product Description


Citizen
Citizen

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.

    While it is a nice looking watch, I am going on three years now of replacing the band. You must read the instructions on this watch and unfortunately, if you do, you will realize that this watch is not made for anyone who wants one watch to do it all. I am a sales professional and a charter captain and during the first year the watch almost fell overboard by just the band tearing in half (sad to say but I was just standing there and it fell off). I went back to the dealer I purchased it from, he made me follow the care instructions to a "T" for the next time and again, it started to crack after a 10 months. Maybe bad luck, maybe not because I am going back to him again for a third band. At $70 per band, this is hardly a good purchase. Shame on Citizen for putting such a nice watch on a cheap band. Other than that, the face does scratch easily but the features are very nice. Oh, Don't expect Customer service to help out at all with this Citizen issue, they were worthless to me (asked for invoices of my 2 bands that were purchased and wanted me to send the watch back for "investigation". I did not save the receipts because I thought for sure it would not have to come to this! There is no investigation needed. This watch band is not made for anyone who is active in the outdoors.) great watch for those that want a dive watch but never actually dive, or go outside, or do anything active. If this was not a wedding gift, I would have sold it already. I plan on replacing the band one more time and use it for dinners with the wife. This is a dress/land watch in a dive watch clothing.

    Nice watch. Brushed stainless steel, rubber band and really cool looking and unique carbon fiber unidirectional bezel.

    49mm case. Its a fairly big watch but doesnt look quite as big as the specs might suggest due to the depth
    sensor on the left side accounting for a few millemeters by itself. Lookswise I'd say it appears more like
    about a 45-46 millemeter piece overall. Thickness is about 16mm and it sits moderatly high on the wrist.

    Three subdials - seconds, minutes for chrono/stopwatch function, and 24 hour indicator (nice but its slaved to the main hour and minute hands, wish you could set a different time zone, i.e. GMT). Second hand has three
    functions, power reserve indicator, depth meter (up to 125ft) and stopwatch/chronograph. The chronograph is
    a little unusual in the respect the when resetting, it "unwinds" all the way back to the start rather than
    just making one sweep around the dial to zero the stopwatch, i.e. if the chrono has been running for five
    minutes the second hand will run backwards through five revolutions of the dial, fairly quickly, but still
    kind of time consuming if you're in a hurry to reset.

    Black dial is crisp and legible and the crystal, while not sapphire, has a clear, quality appearance and is distortion free at angles. Luminescence is very good, as good as my Breitling B1, easily readable in the dark.

    The rubber strap looks durable but is also soft and the watch is very comfortable to wear in general. Nice
    solid looking buckle.

    If you're into 44-49 mm sport chronograph watches you will probably like this watch. You can tell right away
    this is not a cheap piece, the whole package exudes quality and I think it looks as nice as some chronos costing thousands more. Besides the Breitling I aslo own a Tag Aquracer and I believe this is a pretty good bang for the buck, especially at internet prices of $380 to around $520.

    This watch is absolutely gorgeous. The pictures really don't do it justice, especially since they make the center face of the watch look light grey when it is really black (picture has reflection). The depth function works extremely well and was always right with my Oceanic VT3 all the way down to 86ft (lowest I went). It was easily readable at a glance in the clear Bahama water, but I think the large glow markers and orange depth hand would stand out in lower vis very well. We also spent 3 days at Atlantis splashing around in the pools and riding the water rides and this watch was never phased, no fog, no nothing, it worked flawlessly the entire trip. The bezel is 60 clicks which I love, and the pip is a good sized dot. The glow on this watch is incredible, very easy to read in any light condition, even after hours of no light at all touching the face. The first 3-5 days I wore it I did have some irritation from the band, but now I don't even notice it the watch being there.

    Now for the flaw....the dial for the chrono (top dial) is slaved to the depth guage/chrono second hand. Every time you want to use the chrono it has to unwind 3 full revolutions to get to the 0 on the top dial, and when you are done timing it rewinds for the total time back to 0. If you use the chrono for 15 minutes and 30 seconds, it will unwind 15.5 times to get back to 0. This means that you spend quite a long time waiting before you can use your chrono and even more time waiting to use it again. They really screwed that function up which is sad because I really use a chrono a lot.

    Other than that this watch is perfect! It makes a great backup depth guage/bottom timer and I highly recommend it.

    This is an update to the post noted down below. I just sent the watch back to Citizen again for the third band replacement. The original broke where the buckle attaches to the other band and I had that replaced. That band (#2) broke in two places - 1) where the buckle actually attaches to the band and 2) on the band that the buckle attaches to - at one of the insert holes. So this make 3 bands in 3 years and customer service told me that the sun and the salt water will cause deterioration - hey, news flash - this is supposed to be a dive watch. What happens if you are hovering at a ledge at say 80 feet and the band breaks and sinks down to - say 120 feet and you're near the end of your dive. I guess you leave it there. Now that is a piece of equipment that every diver should have. And, it costs $115 plus shipping to get the band replaced. This is the last time I replace the band and I don't hink I can trust Citizen quality or their willingness to stand behind their product.

    Bought the watch 20 months ago and a week ago as I was taking it off the thick rubber band separated (ripped??) at the 5th notch. I had the receipt, 5 year warranty, should be no problem. I called Citizen and they said no dice - the 5 year warranty was for the watch not the band. My feeling was that it was a manufacture defect - they said send it in. When I followed up customer service said $81 which includes shipping. I objected - I've had my Breitling Colt with a rubber band for 5 years and have had no problem and this isn't my only watch (I alternate with 5 timepieces). Their response was - they have replaced thousands of bands. Wow! I was considering buying another Citizen eco drive as a "play" watch but with support like this - no thanks.
