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. See all Product description

I don't plan on ever needing to buy another watch ever again, so I didn't mind paying a little more than most people would spend on a time piece.
The Promaster Carbon does not need batteries, the strap is stainless steel and very well made (with the additional peace of mind of a security clasp) and is accurate due to the atomic time signal (which comes from Germany if you're in Europe)
When the clocks recently adjusted from Winter to Summer I didn't even have to think about winding it forward as I've had to do with every other watch I'd previously owned. This had done it for me while I slept!
It actually will check the Atomic signal upto 3 times a day (but only if you miss the first signal at 2am) you can also set it to manually collect the signal at any time.
It's not a light watch, but when I chose this it was between this and the Skyhawk AT Titanium, but the Skyhawk just felt a little "Cheep" as there was no weight to it. The Promaster uses the same mechanism as the Skyhawk series, but without the complicated Sliderule which most people would not use anyway.
The face of the Promaster Carbon is a little less "Busy" than the Skyhawk's as well, and in the end this was what lead me to going for this over them.
I'm very pleased with my purchase.
Whichever Citizen AT series Ecodrive watch you go for, you are unlikely to be disappointed with it.
Just put it on and never worry that you don't have the exact right time ever again!
The Promaster gives you radio wave accuracy and Eco-Drive (so you never need a battery) plus 200m water resistance - also it's a solid and very good looking watch. I'm not sure I will want to wade through the hefty instruction book to understand all the other features (they also send you a demo disk for your pc/laptop!) but the dual time zone will probably come in handy for hols.
Although the face is quite 'busy,' the large white hands make the Promaster's analog display very easy to read even in murky conditions.
On the negative side, this watch will display the day/date, but only at the expense of switching off the digital time display which is a bit bonkers. Also the day/date is in USA format so the 4th May is 5/4. To be honest the digital display is needlessly small for a watch as large as this and I suspect some won't bother using it at all.
But overall the Promaster is a fantastic watch which I would recommend to anyone both in terms of looks and technology - especially at the current price.
The bracelet size was just about right for my wrist, although another 2-3mm would have been ideal in warmer weather, although I have found with some earlier models that they were either one link too large or too small when purchased and I don't recall one that was a perfect fit from new. The worst example was a titanium model where I needed two links inserted (free from Citizen if recently purchased).
Despite the several dials on its face and the two LCD windows, it does not appear to be excessively busy or unattractive and I eventually arrived at this model after rejecting several others at lower prices. It started to receive a radio signal once the box lid was removed and rather quickly set to the correct time. I found that it was about 3/4 charged as received and immediately started to charge it under a fluorescent reading lamp. The manual suggests that it might take up to 130 hours if fully discharged so I was expecting it to need around 30-35 hours, but I believe that it may need less.
Operation is rather similar to another Citizen model I own although that has several fewer functions and is not radio controlled. Although there are several functions, the watch is easy to use regardless of function as the same method of use applies to every one. You only need use the lower button and the crown and there is no need to press several buttons in a specific combination or to press one a specified number of times, which no-one will ever remember.
The hands and major number positions are luminous and quite bright even in dull light once 'charged' by exposure to light and there is another luminous pip at the 12-o'clock position on the bezel when in its default position.
There is a fold-over safety bar securing the clasp which, when closed, is strong enough to hold the watch on the wrist even if the release buttons are pressed. The bracelet clasp has a button on each side, partly covered by the safety bar, as a safety release. There are two other buttons at the opposing end of the clasp, which in normal use, offer some protection to prevent accidental opening of the clasp if hitting one of the release buttons on an edge. However, these provide another function in that within the clasp is a ratchet mechanism which temporarily expands the size of the bracelet by the equivalent of 2-3 links so that the watch can be worn over a shirt, as perhaps by an aircraft's pilot. You need to press both buttons quite firmly while pulling on the side of the bracelet closest to the 12-o'clock position. This extension can be closed simply by pushing that end of the bracelet to its closed position.
The hands are 'pilot style' and about 3mm in width, which makes the watch easily read with the briefest glance. This may render it less attractive to those women who often prefer gents' watches. Externally surrounding the dial is a ratcheted uni-directional (anti-clockwise) rotating bezel which forms part of a slide rule in conjunction with the inside markings around the edge of the dial. It is rather simple and devoid of decimal place capability so is unlikely to be used for any serious calculations. Its capabilities can be more easily and possibly more accurately matched by mental arithmetic or by a simple electronic calculator, assuming that they are aircraft-safe.
Attractive and imposing, this is about the ultimate watch you can own without spending thousands!
