Citizen watches are made by a company that was started in 1918. The company was originally called Citizen, but soon afterwards changed its name to Citizen Watch Company. It now trades as Citizen Holdings Co., Ltd and is based in Tokyo, Japan. It is also one of the largest watch producers in the world. Citizen watches are well known for their high quality products and their enviable reputation is firmly built on this.
This watch company has lead the world in many innovative advances in watch technology. They have produced the slimmest LCD watch in the world, the first watch to incorporate voice recognition, and the first professional dive watch to have a built-in electric depth sensor. When it comes to world firsts in watches, people look to Citizen watches every time to see what will happen next. Their Eco Drive collection, for example, are all powered by light. It can be natural sunlight, or artificial lamps light. Either way these watches will never need a battery as long as they are not kept in the dark.
Citizen watches are truly at the cutting edge of watch technology. Their exciting Skyhawk Atomic Timekeeping (AT) line keeps perfect time through Radio Controlled Timekeeping technology. Each watch can synchronise with radio clocks in Europe, North America or Japan. The Skyhawk line can also be combined with the Eco Drive line to produce a watch that automatically keeps perfect time and is also powered by light. It should never need maintenance at any time throughout it’s entire lifetime.
Citizen watches tend to be quite chunky in appearance. They are solid and reassuring, especially the men’s line of watches, yet their size is not one of purely mechanical overbearing. The watches have a certain style all of their own that certainly shines through. They are unique in their own way, and the ladies watch models can be quite delicate and elegant. Citizen watches are a designer watch and therefore priced in the higher range, but not to the point of being too highly priced to afford.
Citizen watches have come a long way since their cautious beginnings in the 1920s. They have led the way in wrist watch development in many respects, and still continue to do so. Anyone who needs a good solid watch they can depend on now and for many years to come should definitely consider one of the many versions of Citizen watches.
