The company was established in 1924. The founding fathers selected the name Citizen so it would be "Close to the Hearts of People Everywhere" and soon after adopted the company’s formal name, Citizen Watch Company.

During the last seventy-five years Citizen has expanded its business throughout the world and has achieved recognition as the global brand. The past twenty-five year period has coincided with the company’s dramatic rise to its current position as the world’s largest watchmaker, a distinction Citizen has held every year since 1986.

Beyond sheer size, Citizen is also recognized as a worldwide leader in advanced technology. From the world’s slimmest LCD watch to the first voice recognition watch and the world’s first professional dive watch with an electronic depth sensor, Citizen’s record of "world’s firsts" is unmatched.

More recently, Citizen has staked out a new position as the leader in Ecologically Friendly timekeeping with its Eco-Drives watches that are light powered. With models ranging from dress models to sports models to professional dive watches, Citizen Eco-Drive runs continuously in any kind of natural or artificial light for a lifetime of use. Fueled by light, it never needs a battery.

Eco-Drive Frequently Asked Questions (See the full Citizen Eco-Drive FAQ here)

How can you tell if the Eco-Drive watch is getting enough light?
In normal use, the watch displays the time and the sweep-second hand moves in one second intervals. A very important feature of Eco-Drive is the Low Charge Warning Mode which as a result of low battery voltage, causes the second hand to jump two seconds at a time (while still keeping correct time).

How long will an Eco-Drive watch run after it is fully charged?
If your watch is put away where no light is available to it while in a fully charged state, depending on the model, it will run for from 45 days to 5 years.

How can the Eco-Drive watch be recharged?
Besides sunlight, it can be safely charged by exposing it to a fluorescent desk lamp, with the dial (face) up and within about 8 inches or an incandescent lamp (regular light bulb) no closer than 20 inches. Never use a halogen lamp since the heat generated by it can cause damage to your watch. The most efficient and the quickest is in direct bright sunlight (not windowsill) and never on the dashboard of a car.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice watch with a few niggles 9 Jan 2012
I bought one of these about 3 months ago as a 'cheapie' watch and I really enjoy wearing it.

Firstly, this is a really well put-together watch. I have a number of other watches from Rolexes to Omegas to Breitlings and it is as well made as any of them. It is solid and well built and looks utterly stunning in black (IMHO better than the titanium and ss versions). You know the specs, solar powered, radio controlled, stopwatch, timer, the VERY useful TWO world alarms (which allows you to set two independent alarms in two independent timeszones - ie you may want an alarm to go off at 9am in London and another to go off at 9am in New York) etc.

As a pilot (commercial not a fighter pilot like the other reviewer) I do question the usability of the small LCD screens during turbulence and low light (I'll come on to this in a mo). I have a Breitling aerospace and the digital displays are as clear as anything but the small ones on this are not the easiest to read on the job and I would hate to have to read them on board a fast jet. The slide rule is great for quick calculations and I use it surprisingly often.

The 'niggles':

Well, as I said, the lcd screens aren't the clearest and are easily obscured by the hands.
The backlight does not work if you are in stopwatch or timer mode - pretty essential for flying at night and imho a stupid omission.
The date is slaved to the SECOND time zone and not the primary one. So, if you are in the UK and have the hands set for UK time, the date will be the date in Hong Kong and will be wrong for a large chunk of the day. Not the end of the world but again, a bit daft.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great watch but!!! 16 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase
I purchased this watch for myself to replace my old Accurist watch which has become very tempremental and would stop working and need a complete re-set every time it recieved the slittest tap. My new watch was ordered on Saturday, ordinary 2nd class post and arrived Monday midday (nice one Amazon).
I wanted this particular watch as it needs no battery change (hopefully) and self adjust's the time via radio signal. To put it bluntly it looks great and it's very low maintainence. Take it out of the box and the date and time are set, all you need to do is adjust the strap. with a little help from a video on Youtube this was soon done and 5 links shorter the watch fits like a dream.
However after waring the watch for 4 days a real problem came to light. I work in an office all day and believe me when I say I dont come into contact with anything more abrasive than a wooden desktop. Despite this by Friday my beauiful black watchstrap is showing definate signs of wear and is now my silver and black watchstrap. FOR A TIMEPEACE THAT THAT COST'S OVER £300 AND HAS A RECOMMENDED RETAIL PRICE OF ALMOST £400.00 THIS IS TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE.

1.0 out of 5 stars No radio reception, bad ergonomics 9 Oct 2010
By Anon
The watch feels great, looks great and has the usual high quality Citizen build. I really wanted to like it, BUT...

FIDDLY: The different functions are selected by pulling out the crown then turning it. You have to get your nail underneath because a recess stops you getting at it from the front. Either take off the watch or jam your finger under it to pull out the crown. Then, it's too easy to pull it out to the second position, which can invoke completely different action (example: resets the watch to "reference position" if you were on stopwatch mode). If only this worked the same way as the Pro Masters do, with the mode selected by a button at the 8 o-clock position.

WORST OF ALL: The radio reception did not work (I'm in North-West England). Tried all the advice given in the manual, but no good, yet my £10 plastic desktop clock gets the same German radio signal indoors and without any problem.

I returned the watch.
Now if there was a black Pro Master ...

5.0 out of 5 stars love this watch 10 Mar 2010
i love this watch, i got mine on holiday last year at a fraction of the uk price as it was tax free, i love the radio control function as it never falls behind time, it corects itself once or twice a day, mine has the steel case and feels very haevy and solid on the wrist, this is my third citizen and i`ll recommend it to anyone

5.0 out of 5 stars A great solid watch. 16 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase
I was looking for a watch that was solar power , had a battery gauge and got the time signal. This watch has all three and more , like when there's not enough light for 30 minutes the digital displays turn off and after a week with no light the hands stop. but as soon as it gets some light it wakes up with the correct time showing. Another review says about the date being slaved to the UTC hands mine set those hands to the home time , so there is no problem with the date being wrong. The only thing which could have been better is the clasp does not have a pin adjuster , so you can not make small adjustments to the bracelet. I took 4 links out and it fits my 19cm wrist just right. For a fairly large watch it is not too heavy and you get instructions on how to use the slide rule bezel , which turns both ways smoothly.
