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.

This watch is absolutely beautiful! (and the pictures really don't do it justice)

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!

This is a real bargain - currently around £100 cheaper than the high street price. Mine kicked off receiving radio waves straight out of the box and has continued faultlessly ever since (maybe London is a particularly good reception area).

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.

I own many high end watches that I have collected through the years including but not limited to Rado, Cartier, Tissot, Rolex (Date Adjust, President and Sea Dweller) and Breitling (Emergency) but this is my every day watch. I've used it almost daily for the last 5 years and wear it almost continuously. I've taken it into the Amazon jungle and rock climbing. I even took it scuba diving once and submerged it past 100 feet (not recommended by Citizen). The watch has a very masculine tough look to it partially due to the carbon fiber bezel and fixating screws and the large crowns (they don't screw in like the Breitling or Rolex). Since it is relatively rare in the U. S. it commands attention. It does not look like a Citizen watch and is confused a lot for a large Breitling such as an Avenger. However it is also incredibly affordable to maintain. I've changed the glass and pressure tested it from Citizen once due to an accident (don't ask...) for $60 U. S., a fraction of the price that would cost for one of my high end Swiss watches. The scratches come out easily with polishing since it is all stainless. I have never had to adjust it ever since I purchased it due to the radio controlled synchronization with the atomic clocks. I probably couldn't adjust it now since I long forgot how to do it. If you ever have to adjust the watch I highly recommend you watch the interactive CD or interactive program on line from Citizen and don't waste your time with the ridiculously thick manual. It rarely ever fails the atomic synchronization within the United States and when it does it manages to maintain perfect time anyways. It is capable of synchronizing in Europe and Japan.Read more ›

I purchased this watch just recently and thought I would post a review. First of all I'm a "watch guy." I've owned Panerai, Rolex, Omega and others with a masculine appearance and I can honestly say this watch stacks up against all those brands. It looks like it should cost much more than it does. On the wrist it feels as rugged and substantial as all the more expensive watches, and at this price point you won't feel like fainting if you accidentally scratch it or otherwise give it that time-worn patina. The brushed stainless steel for the bracelet, and the polished buttons make a great contrasting combination that really catch the eye. If you like your watches beastly, impressive to wear and behold, this is a great choice.
