During the last 75 years Citizen has expanded its business throughout the world and has achieved recognition as the global brand. The past 25-year period has coincided with the companyâ€™s dramatic rise to its current position as the worldâ€™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 worldâ€™s slimmest LCD watch to the first voice recognition watch and the worldâ€™s first professional dive watch with an electronic depth sensor, Citizenâ€™s record of "worldâ€™s firsts" is unmatched.
More recently, Citizen has staked out a new position as the leader in 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.View details
