Ladies Eco Drive black plated bracelet with diamonds
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.

The date function always counts through 31 days, as any watch without a month indicator does, so on the 1st after a 30-day month, the watch must be manually pushed forward a day. This does not bother me.
The glow-in-the dark arms do not always shine brightly for very long after exposure, but, as I usually wear the watch at work, I have not been troubled by this. I think that the flourescent light I am usually under is not substantial enough to give the arms a good glow-in-the-dark charge, and, sadly, I hardly wear it long enough in the sunlight to do it justice. I, therefore, will not complain about that, being a cave-dwelling office worker 5/7s of the week.
The watch comes with a citizen case, that is nice for when I need to store or travel the watch without wearing it, and I do not want to worry about it bumping around.
The black and gold color is nice and elegant, although it limits the watch to only those outfits which compliment it. The diamonds are beautiful and very bright. They are not too flashy but add a definite elegance to the face.
I have had no issues with battery life or watch timing, although, on one occassion, a magnetic field moved my watch ahead about 20 minutes. From the comments of my co-workers, I was made aware that magnets can do this to any watch, and it is not a concern.
I have gotten a lot of random compliments about this watch, and I just love it! I highly recommend it.
